About Pershore Patty
My passion for food and burgers (as well as a few friends) inspired me to start my food blog ‘Pershore Patty’ back in January 2017. Excited by all of the wonderful and unique places in my home county, I decided to launch The Foodie Card in Worcestershire as a way of encouraging local people to support their independent food and drink businesses. The card is now accepted at some of the best food and drink places in Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, as well as being accepted by a number of online shops & pop-up traders.
Here are 15 offers that can be used in and around Cheltenham town centre right now…
Marinades is Cheltenham’s original Caribbean Restaurant, serving delicious, fresh, authentic Caribbean cuisine.

As an independent family run restaurant owners Clive & Wendy try to ensure that wherever possible their meat, fish, vegetables and ice-cream is sourced and supplied by other local family owned businesses. By going to Marinades you will be supporting a local business established since 2003 and many other similar small, family owned businesses.
