My daughter and I went for dinner last night and had the tasting menu and wine flight to go with it. What an amazing treat! Every course was a dream, wine was really interesting and perfectly complementary and service was unfailingly charming and informed. This is a really class act.

Our party of 6 had a fantasic dining experience over lunch. We chose the lunch menu rather than the tasting menu and everything from the chefs appetisers to every course of everyone's meal was top quality and served beautifully. Seriously, nobody had anything negative to say. For me, the service made the whole experience. My personal preference is relaxed and... More

The staff were all lovely, knowledgeable and relaxed, the restaurant classy, warm and cosy, and the food was spectacular. Why Lumiere is a two rosette restaurant, nobody knows. Obviously the AA ate at Le Champignon Sauvage instead and got mixed up because they got the rating mixed up! Went for a birthday treat... it would have to be for the... More

We keep coming back, keep having the taster menu and keep loving it. The taster menu changes every time and is always a great combination of delicious, interesting and fun. Atmosphere and service is very friendly and relaxed. Best restaurant in Cheltenham, easy.

I chose here for my partners birthday and we were in no way disappointed! We had the nine course tasting menu, which was absolutely fantastic, also adding the cheese course at the end. every course was amazing, I was also impressed by their wine list, which has obviously been carefully considered. I'm amazed this restaurant is only currently two rosettes,... More

I used TA to find somewhere special to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary. A surprise for her indoors. The reviews of Lumiere and it's informative Web site made my decision. Once we had found its unprepossessing front door we were welcomed with a smile and a view of just a few low lit white linen covered tables. This place is... More

The taster menu is just sheer pleasure! Jon will adjust the ingredients to avoid allergies or dislikes, & you simply must have the accompanying flight of wines - not only does it remove the hassle of choosing, but each has been carefully selected to go with its matching dish.
