My parents 30th wedding anniversary is coming up in August *note to self – must not forget to buy a card* and they held their reception at Ellenborough Park.
My brother was home for the weekend so in order to make it feel like a mini celebration, where better to go then Ellenborough.
Situated high up on the outskirts of town, you get some great views of Cheltenham and without travelling out too far you’ve escaped the hustle and bustle of a Friday night in the centre.
Upon arrival we were invited to have our drinks in one of the sittings rooms whilst taking a look at the menu.
And in true family outing style, have lots of photographs taken…
After the ‘photoshoot’ we were led into the restaurant and eagerly awaited our food.
Having got our orders in early it wasn’t long before plates of mouth-watering looking food were presented in front of us.
In between courses my brother kept us entertained with stories from his new job in London, whilst mum and dad reminisced about how different the hotel looked when they got married.
To accompany my dessert I had a dessert wine that I’m slowly getting accustomed to. I could happily drink these throughout the meal but I don’t think that’s the idea. The food was a hit with everyone and we all left feeling full and a little bit tipsy (minus the drivers).
FYI the last time I visited Ellenborough, Noel Edmonds was dining there. If that’s not going to tempt you to visit, I don’t know what will.
