The food, service and ambience here is always immaculate. This was a Ruby Wedding celebratory meal and they did us proud.

Such a wonderful night. Had the 7 course taster menu. Food was amazing, tasted wonderful and was beautifully presented. Service was brilliant. All 8 of us enjoyed the whole dining experience. Wonderful restaurant for a special occasion

We had visited this restaurant before and enjoyed it. Unfortunately on this occasion we really struggled to find food that appealed! It was all too 'bitty' and trendy. A very over priced wine list as well.

When it comes to Cheltenham's best restaurants the list inevitably tends to be led by the two Michelin-starred Le Champignon Sauvage (and for good reason) but, much as I love the artistry on offer there, given the choice I would plump for Lumiere nine nights out of ten. I've had the pleasure of dining at Lumiere a number of times... More

This was one of the best lunches we have had anywhere. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and looked after. Their three course lunch at £28 is excellent value as not only do you get beautifully presented and extremely well cooked dishes but you also get an extra 3 courses (an appetiser, an 'amuse bouche'...

This has been high on my list of restaurants to try. It took a long time to book (namely because we had a previous booking cancelled 2 hours before we were due to eat), but the wait was definitely worth it! My wife and I went for the 9 course taster with a flight of wine to accompany and what... More

Had a meal here with my wife for our anniversary and again the food and service was excellent. Its not a cheap meal but the 3 course meal is added to by various extras which are all interesting and very tasty. This is a quality restaurant an probably one of the best in Cheltenham.
