The team behind No. 131 have lived, worked, travelled, and researched all over the world’s finest cities; the expertise gained here has been distilled into the service, design and culinary philosophy.

We really do live locally, but the world is our oyster.

Terrace Restaurant
Yoku Bar


Our signature fine-dining restaurant YOKU translates from Japanese to the desire of doing things exceptionally well, with care and kindness. This is the motivation and enduring essence of the complete YOKU restaurant experience, where going above and beyond is an uncompromising passion to surprise and delight, with mouth-watering Japanese and Asian cuisine.

The YOKU design, service and culinary philosophy were inspired and influenced by worldly travels, and this can be evidenced in the bespoke interiors, authentic artworks, awe-inspiring gold leaf vaulted ceilings, and exquisite drink, and cocktail presentations from Bar Tokyo adjacent to the restaurant.

At the heart of the YOKU proposition is the authentic embrace of the Shun and Omakase centuries-old traditions, to deliver the finest seasonal ingredients, combined with the fine art of collaboration from the chef to diner, through personal interactions from the stylish open kitchen.



Cheltenham’s best kept secret this exquisite Tokyo-vogue cocktail bar seamlessly combines with YOKU, to provide the liquid intelligence to guests before, during and quite often after their fine-dining experience, can’t say we blame them. Cosy and coveted interiors of this magnitude provide the perfect backdrop to the height of good taste.
