He said: "We've wanted to come here for many years, especially after our success in Gloucester.
"We sell a ton of sausages a week, and it's great we've come here after 42 years."
Darren Payne, 47, who runs the Gloucester store, said: "We stood back the night before opening, and the place looks simply fantastic."
Among the first in line to sample the goods was Richard Wright, 60, who comes from Charlton Kings. He said: "I normally have to go to Gloucester to get the gammon ham, so it's great we can now get it in Cheltenham."
â Our reporter Michael Yong was on hand to try the dishes.
He said: "There was a definite feeling of anticipation as I stepped into Farmhouse Deli in Cheltenham. I'd heard so much about them that they had a lot to live up to.
"It didn't disappoint. The variety of sausages on display was mind-blowing. They had all sorts, even one called Dragon Fire.
"I was offered the chance to try some pig chitterlings, but declined for a scotch egg instead. The food tasted really fresh, and the different meats and vegetables on offer meant I was spoilt for choice."
