The perfect bar is as much about ambience and setting as what goes on inside it – that’s why we handpicked a spot in our favourite part of Cheltenham to set up Montpellier Lodge – the clue is in the name! Whether you’re in the market for after-work drinks, a romantic night out or a weekend drink with friends, our sophisticated surroundings and an impressive menu of cocktails and spirits is enough to get any party started.
Relax and unwind in sumptuous settings
Located in the beautiful Georgian surroundings of Montpellier in Cheltenham, our style reflects the charm and elegance of the era that the area represents. From the wide, stylish boulevards of the street to the beautifully laid out squares and parks, this is truly the heart of Gloucestershire’s fashionable dining district. Like generations before you, it’s the perfect place to see and be seen, shop, eat and drink, and we’re proud to call it our home. So if you’re just here to promenade, or you’re tired from serious shopping, our place is for you.
Serving up a treat
Set against a stunning backdrop of the former park keeper’s cottage, we bring some of that Georgian elegance into the present with our impressive cocktail menu. From old favourites to new styles, and inventive twists on the classics, we can provide a style to suit you and your occasion. We can also rustle up something new or something different, just say the word. We’re also proud of our wine selection, from simply delicious varieties to storied vintages that are paired perfectly with our menus so that there’s something for every course. If spirits are your thing, we can swear by our handpicked selection from our favourite small-batch distilleries from across the UK.
Speaking of food, we’re insistent on using local recipes or locally sourced ingredients to pay tribute to some of the great continental styles. Even if you’re not here for dinner, we have a variety of options from snacks to small plates that will tempt anyone here for drinks and will satisfy even the most fastidious foodie. Whether it’s melt in the mouth gnocchi or freshly caught Cornish fish landed that day, there’s plenty to choose from.
The best of the bars in Cheltenham
We like to think that we reflect Montpellier in everything we do. We’re clean, stylish, classy and tasteful, but we’re also fun and a little bit different. There are plenty of districts in Cheltenham, but there’s none like Montpellier. There are plenty of bars in Cheltenham, but none like Montpellier Lodge.
