Two minutes' walk from the centre of Cheltenham, perched unassumingly on the road that leads from the racecourse into town, the Storyteller Restaurant & Wine Room is renowned for its relaxed and cheerful atmosphere, international cuisine and exceptional list of wines and cocktails.
A smart, colourful interior, bedecked with authentic Native American wall-hangings, pots and sculptures, is the first clue as to what to expect. Adventure and excitement are at the core of a menu composed of exceptional locally sourced ingredients and inspired by the foods of Southwest America, the Mediterranean and the Pacific Rim. Expect hearty mains like North American bison burger and fresh market fish of the day with a squash, corn and pepper medley, lightly spiced wild rice and a zesty gazpacho sauce, for example.
Call in for a Moscow Mule or enjoy a celebratory glass of wine - the walk-in wine room boasts over 100 varieties to choose from - and kick back in the wine garden when the sun shines. Parties of up to 150 can be catered for in style and frequent diners can get involved in the reward points scheme.
