IT’S TIME YOU DISCOVERED THE F IND


LewisLoves.com is a Cotswolds and South West lifestyle blog run by Adam and Sarah Lewis, sharing the very best the area has to offer. “Food is a particular passion of ours, and we can't wait to share our hidden gems with you. You can also follow us over on Twitter @adamlewisloves and Instagram @sarahlewisloves for foodie inspiration and much more besides."


With a mission to create a beautiful Regency coffee house delivering excellent food, drink and service from dusk to dawn, The Find has proved to be a popular addition to Cheltenham’s foodie scene since its arrival in November 2017.


During the day, it’s great for a coffee and cake, brunch with friends, or visiting with your pet pooch; owner David keeps dog treats behind the counter. The baked goods, including a selection of vegan and gluten free, are made by our favourites Salt Bakehouse and The Bakers Table.


The Find also opens for dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings, with weekday private bookings. The trendy interiors, curated by Shadowplay Design and Culpepper & Co, accentuate the homely regency townhouse feel; think high ceilings, airy spaces, gorgeous foliage and splashes of rich, vibrant colour.


Local artisan suppliers feature heavily, including on their wine list. Cirencester-based Poulton Hill Estate’s 2013 English Sparkling Rose, bursting with fragrant strawberries and a lengthy mousse, is an easy drinker and we love that it grows within 30 minutes of home.


On our latest visit, we enjoyed canapé starters. The highlight was watercress soup with a quail’s egg that burst in the mouth. Garden Tiger gin cured salmon, and a duck and pistachio terrine on homemade oatcakes were equally delicious.


Sarah’s main was a tender Aberdeen Angus sirloin; juicy, flavoursome and thick cut. It came flanked by excellent triple cooked chips, a piquant béarnaise sauce and “the best creamed spinach” Sarah’s ever tasted. It’s hard to better a quality cut of beef when you treat it right, and The Find are contenders for Best in Show.


Having formulated a plan to steal some of Sarah’s steak, I returned to my cod loin, chive crushed new potatoes, leek fondue and prawn bisque. It flaked apart delicately, releasing clouds of salty steam under the pressure of my fork. Sadly, the prawn bisque brought the dish together so well that by the time I’d remembered my nefarious plan, Sarah’s plate was empty!


For dessert, we devoured a ginger and treacle sponge with sharp rhubarb and clotted cream, and a blood orange vanilla panna cotta with dark chocolate hazelnut biscotti. Both delicious but the undoubted star of the show was The Find fondue; glossy Belgian chocolate, homemade rhubarb marshmallows, chocolate brownies, strawberries and gigantic profiteroles.


We’ll finish by saying that this was one of our favourite meals in recent memory. The food is outstanding and the staff deliver impeccable service. Try it and you’ll undoubtedly wish you’d found The Find sooner.
