We went here for the first time a couple of weeks ago and from booking the table to leaving the restaurant was the most pleasurable evening!! The staff were so friendly, courteous and attentive yet nice and relaxed that made the evening really relaxing. They checked our dietary requirements on booking and when we first went it. Being a vegetarian was not in the slightest bit a problem. . And I had an entire menu. The food was presented with elegance and style and tasted great. A very talented chef. We will definitely be coming again. .. and a high recommendation to all my friends. Such a wonderful experience. Thank you

A delightful Anniversary lunch.

We had the tasting menu with wine which was interesting, exciting, technically brilliant and delicious.

Perfect for that special occasion.

Recommended.

Lunch, the vegetarian menu, and quite possibly the best meal I've ever eaten. A stunning range of flavours, a hugely talented chef and warm and friendly - and informed - front of house. Brilliant! Obviously we'll be going back but visiting Cheltenham on a fairly regular basis my only regret is that we hadn't been to Lumiere before - think of all the other brilliant meals we've missed!

Where else would we go for dinner on such a special evening than our (my?) favourite restaurant in Cheltenham?
Jon put on a quite amazing tasting menu, and Helen & her team were on top form in front of house, so what with two very nice bottles of wine we had a great evening.
Needless to say, we will be back!!

This restaurant gave us a fab experience last night, great ambience, comfortable restaurant, caring staff. The food was exceptional, inventive but not wacky it tasted good and hit the spot. Varied wine list something for everyone - I love new world wine so was pleased to see it on the list with the old favourites. Will certainly return, suggest the Michelin inspectors do too!
