Recommend by a Scottish friend not known for being easily parted from his money, we enjoyed a fabulous, imaginative meal served in an exemplary manner. Expensive - yes but well worth it.

Inventive cuisine that tastes as good as it looks. Every dish a medley of contrasting and complementary flavours. Sometimes a chef's imagination can run away with him/her and the food ultimately suffers, but at Lumière the gastronomic experience is sublimely heavenly whilst remaining at all times deliciously grounded in the diners' tastebuds. Dining at Lumière, an experience not to be... More

This is clearly a superior restaurant by anyone's standards. Food, presentation and service are all first class and are compatible to restaurants we have visited in London, France and the USA. Definitely Michelin star standard. We will be back.

Set menu £60. Accomplished cooking with fine service in a small comfortable restaurant leads to an enjoyable evening. Hilight was the soufflé dessert.

We love this restaurant because it never disappoints in food and ambience. Helen and her staff work their magic front of house, while Jon and his staff produced faultless modern beautiful dishes. Thank you all so much for making our evening so special.

Very good food served by friendly staff in an intimate setting. Good wine list. Not cheap but, in my view, well worth the money. Recommended

An amazing evening at Lumiere, front start to finish faultless service, food and wine - as well as being a really comfortable place to sit and talk and eat and drink. I had the duck and the plaice - the latter being of stratospheric quality. Great wine list - not over priced. Worth every penny.

Thank Lawrence W
