Cheltenham is continuing to see positive business growth in the town with a swathe of new businesses opening their doors to the public.
Taking up residence on the corner of Clarence Street and Crescent Place, in the building that formerly housed The Stable, are not one but two exotic new eateries.
Pyesta marks the arrival of the first Filipino restaurant in the Cotswolds and brings with it a welcome splash of colour with its bright, cobalt exterior. Meanwhile, Nagomi promises residents a completely fresh experience with its unique, Korean barbeque / Japanese grill-style restaurant.
In another first, Cheltenham’s very first rooftop restaurant opened last week to wow customers with its panoramic views across Imperial Gardens It joins ground floor eateries, The Artisan Baker and Bosco Pizzeria which opened earlier this year in the refurbished Quadrangle premises.
Other notable additions to the town include HEBE restaurant and café, situated on the ground floor of retirement complex Pegasus, Santiago’s at the top of the Promenade, and ‘Neighbourhood kitchen’ Cantina Del Barrio delivering fresh cocktails and unique twists on Mexican street food staples, near to the brand new Restaurant Journey with their “fine dining with a difference at an experience to ignite all of your senses” on Bath Road.
Retail is also performing strongly in Cheltenham. In July 2022, Cheltenham BID reported that only 8.8% of units in the town were vacant against the national average of 11.2%. New retailers opening in the town include Hatchards Bookshop and Jigsaw on the Prom with Dobbies Garden Centre and Mint Velvet due to open in the coming months.
With a plethora of new businesses, and footfall in the town remaining strong, Cheltenham’s hospitality and retail sectors are continuing to show resilience, making Cheltenham the perfect place to head for Christmas shopping and dining experiences.
