Local Eat Treats #4 Ladies What Lunch at Portivo Lounge

I was first introduced to The Lounges by one of my best friends who lives in Bristol. This is where The Lounges were started and so the city boasts quite a few of them. They are great places to stop for a drink, they also do simple and tasty food, and their cake looks very tempting too. When I visit her, we always drop in to one of The Lounges to eat or drink or both, so when she came to visit me in Gloucestershire, I was pleased we could keep up our tradition and go to the Portivo Lounge which has recently opened in Gloucester Quays.

A Mai Tai and White Lady
The Daffodil is a restaurant and cocktail bar in The Suffolks area of Cheltenham. It first opened its doors in the 1920s as a picture palace with stylish Art Deco d├ęcor. Since then it has served as a bingo hall, an antique furniture centre and since 1996 it has been known as one of finest places to eat in Cheltenham with much of its original features and fittings restored and reinstated.
