The seven course taster menu was outstanding in ingredients and their coming together. And the addition of the accompanying wine was a must. The service was friendly and very welcoming and they were happy to share their knowledge of both food and wine on further...More

We arrived in Cheltenham on a cold Thursday evening in February. I had tried to book via the restaurant's website in January, only to find that it was closed for a short period after Christmas. I left a message - and was called back before...More

What a find! My wife and I were in Cheltenham last Saturday and, as confirmed foodies, we checked Tripadvisor for the best restaurants in town. We liked the sound of Lumiere and so we called in for lunch (without a reservation). I must confess that...More

I loved this place. The food was perfect. We were there for lunch - two choices at each course and each dish (and all the variety of pre-dishes/ amuse bouche etc.) full of surpise, intensity, flavour and interest. I'd recommend just trusting them - even...More

Vegetarians generally get a raw deal from restaurants. Sure, I have had plenty of good meals, occasionally great ones. But too many times you're not even a second thought, or even a third. There's something on the menu because there has to be, and you...More

This restaurant is bijou (small but perfectly formed). I would not take my dog even if was permitted. Sufficient space for diners not for dog too.
