Holee Cow

Cheltenham is not short of high-end restaurants. Amongst these are the highly rated Prithvi and Bhoomi, both Indian cuisine in a fine dining experience. The twist here, is that the owners of those restaurants decided to open a burger joint…

Holee Cow opened in early 2018, serving a selection of high quality burgers and sides, including daily specials with puns that would sit perfectly in Bobs Burgers.

No items found.

It’s not a cheap eats burger meal, but It is absolutely delicious and the higher quality fits the higher price.

I went for a classic bacon and cheese burger, only it was a complete step up from that. Smokey Bacon & Cheese was the official title. A beef patty, with a proper serving of melted smoked cheddar, a chunk of smoked bacon, crispy onion, lettuce, smoked chipotle mayo and a beautiful slice of sweet gherkin, all piled into a brioche bun.

On a future return I opted for one of the specials, named The Escobar. A spicy and deep flavoured burger, with blackened cajun onion, smoked chorizo and chilli ketchup and cooling guacamole.

Sophie opted for the veggie option on the menu, The Bean Bag. A spicy bean patty with a healthy serving of smoked cheddar, pickled jalapeno, lettuce, onion, tomato salsa and sour cream.

Both our guests had The Spicy Clucker. A classic fried buttermilk Chicken breast, smothered in buffalo hot sauce, with blue cheese and celery slaw to cut through the spice.

Now onto sides. A serving of classic fries are good, spicy cheese fries and pulled pork fries are better, but the 'Holee' grail is their Mac & Cheese Bites; they make the trip worth it alone.

If you don’t like puns then you best look away, because Holee Cow has led to another businesses on the horizon; Holee Clucker – a fried chicken place dedicated to the same quality but focussed on bird not beef. There is also hope for a future grilled cheese establishment known as Holee Cheesus.
