A unique dining experience from one of Cheltenham's foremost Chinese Restaurants.

288 Bar & Wok has been modelled on noodle restaurants popular throughout Hong Kong and China. Our aim is to serve great value and delicious food fast. They prepare each dish to order, so that it gets to your table as fresh and hot as is possible. They serve authentic oriental beers such as draft Sun Lik, Hong Kong's number 1 selling beer. They even sell Battledown Ale, made by Cheltenham's only brewery.

As a noodle restaurant their style is very relaxed, with long benches and tables, so you might find yourself sharing with other diners.

Fresh vegetables are a vital ingredient in Bar & Wok's kitchen and their vegetables are sourced from the Vale of Evesham between May and October. They proudly grow their own pak choi on their small family nursery in Offenham. Their nursery has been growing Chinese vegetables and supplying the Chinese community for nearly 30 years.

Since May 2008 they have only used Free Range Eggs in their kitchen which they collect from Clay Hall Farm, a small family farm just outside Bidford-Upon-Avon. This is a small step upon which they hope to build upon in the future.

Bar & Wok offer FRANK Water, available in either still or sparkling. FRANK Water is a pioneering social enterprise that donates 100% of its profits to sustainable 5-filter clean water projects via its charity arm, FRANK Water Projects. Every 1 litre of FRANK Water sold in the UK provides 200 litres of clean safe drinking water in India.

After eating your local vegetables and drinking your ethical water you can finish your meal with a Fairtrade tea, coffee or hot chocolate.

Children are very welcome at Bar & Wok and they provide high chairs that fit neatly over the benches. They will happily provide children's bowls and spoons as well as hot water to heat up any baby food. They even have baby changing facilities to ensure that everyone is comfortable.

And don't forget to ask for your Reward Card at the end of your meal - you can collect one stamp for every main course your purchase and once your card is complete you get to have a free lunch time main on Bar & Wok. Happy Eating!

Opening Times:
Lunch - Weekdays and Sunday 12 noon to 2pm and Saturdays 12 noon to 3pm. Dinner - 6pm to 10pm everyday.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Cheltenham. it's a great place, great atmosphere, great food at a great price. You can also order and collect for takeaway (don't think of it as takeaway as it is much, much, much better quality than that). Personally I would recommend the spicy beef noodles, which are simply awesome! Perfect location if you're going to or have been to the cinema and good parking close by...you can't ask for much more! Just to top it off, my kids love it too!

This is our Favourite place to eat and have a few drinks in Cheltenham. My wife found it before we moved here and are a bit addicted, The staff are all so nice and friendly, the food is always top notch,and it's always busy,You must try this place it really is worth it! I think we have tried almost all of the menu and it's all very good. Going there this afternoon in fact, and already salivating, over the Hot and Sour soup and the delicious fiery Singapore Vermicelli Noodles, washed down with a nice cold bottle of Sun lik.

Love this restaurant! Fantastic food, great staff and very reasonably priced. All of their vegetable's are grown at their own local allotment & you can really taste the difference. This restaurant stand's out from the rest. Can't think of ever using any other Chinese restaurant again.

The food is alway tasty, well made and reasonably priced, the restaurant itself is clean and stylish. But the staff is what makes this a second to none restaurant, they are kind courtious and friendly always making time even during a busy shift to say hello. I could eat there every day. x

Always a great atmosphere, child friendly, good food and great value. One of the few places where service, food and atmosphere are consistant. My daughter (4 1/2) loves it! That's testimony itself - for a fussy eater!!!

The best Chinese restaurant in Cheltenham if not the world. If Carlsberg did a restaurant it would probably be Bar and Wok! P.S. Good humbugs.

Where to start, well the atmosphere is great for big groups or small. The food is great and good value. The staff are friendly and really know the food, very useful as my girlfriend is wheat free and they were not only able to tell us what was OK, but were able to offer a choice! Love the place and eat there regularly, only is difficulty is getting my girlfriend to agree to eat anywhere else!

I have been to a lot (and by that I mean A LOT!!!) of noodle bars throughout the UK and the world but not one has left me feeling as warmhearted as 288 Bar & Wok, of Cheltenham. The food, quality of service and staff were all nothing short of exemplory. I am quite comfortable with sticking my neck on the line by saying that this restaurant is by far the best in Cheltenham.
