Svea, Rodney Road, Cheltenham, England

Komm till Svea! Nu!

Svea is an excellent Swedish restaurant in Cheltenham. The food is yummy in that uniquely bland but delicious Swedish way.. Now, that may not sound great to anyone who has never eaten Swedish food, but I promise you, it’s good stuff, and pretty good value, so if you’re in the Cheltenham area, check it out. It’ll be worth it, and if you go around Christmas they’ll have Glogg, a Swedish mulled wine with almonds and raisins in it! mmm, hot booze with crunchy floating bits…

The restaurant is done up in a typically Scandinavian way. Lots of painted wood, cool leafy colours, Carl Larsson prints and Ikea furniture. It’s lovely. This is what the bog door looks like (both sides):

yes!

yes!

The reason I’ve chosen to thoroughly depict both sides of the toilet door is because for one, it’s a lovely door, and also I love when there’s a hook on the back! especially a nice yellow one.

As you can see it’s minimal without being sterile, there’s some Swedish art and a cute wooden shelf…

Here’s one of the toilet art pieces close up. It’s a Carl Larsson print entitled ‘Christmas Eve’ from 1904/05. Carl Larsson was a fascinating man and a unique artist. You should read his wiki page if you don’t know anything about him. His family home is a tourist attraction in Sundborn, Sweden as its interior is covered in his paintings. Literally every surface is covered in his art, it’s quite an incredible place.

So, there it is. A pleasant setting for the satisfying experience of a post-meatball toilet trip.

Thank you.
