Quaint yet quintessential corner restaurant in Cheltenham, GL50 has just dropped some pretty exciting food news.
Owned by chef Jonas Lodge, GL50 is located on the corner of Well Walk in the town, behind Cheltenham Library, and this weekend it’s about to get a whole lot more yummy.
The restaurant has revealed that it is going to be starting “Sunday Takeaways”, which will see alternate weeks of customers being treated to afternoon tea, or a good old fashion Sunday roast.
In a post shared on social media accounts, GL50 wrote: “We are launching our new Sunday takeaways this Sunday starting with a classic afternoon tea.
“The following Sunday we will be doing our first Sunday roast takeaway!! We will alternate every week from this Sunday onward.”
On the menu for ‘Sunday Afternoon Tea’, customers can enjoy: Lemon and basil choux buns, chocolate tart and hazelnuts, orange marmalade cake, apple tartlet and creme patisserie, scones, jam and clotted cream and a selection of homemade sandwiches.
You will be able to get all that for just £15 per person.
From the following Sunday, the ‘Sunday Lunch’ will be a little more personalised to your tastes.
