My husband and I went here to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. The food was amazing both in flavour and presentation. We had the 9 course tasting menu so we didn't have to make a choice from the delicious sounding menu! It is expensive but this is reflected in the work and ingredients that go into... More

Found this place on trip advisor and it was all that we had hoped for. Good food. Helpful staff who responded quickly and politely to an over cooked steak which was remade to perfection. Reasonably priced and would certainly go again

Outstanding food and excellent service. Great vegetarian menu. Each course is full of flavour and beautifully presented. A highlight of my Cotswold holiday

We stayed in Cheltenham on our way to Wales on holiday and booked this restaurant on the basis of the reviews it had received. We weren't disappointed, they have a separate vegetarian menu which was imaginative and delicious. Starting off with the 'snacks', through the starters and main courses and finishing with a local cheeseboard, excellent attention to detail and... More

Everything and more. Very relaxed atmosphere. Smaller than I expected but well spaced between tables. Thoroughly enjoyed the food, company, wine, service. Although not hideously expensive would perhaps save this for special occasions as it is just so spot on.

Visited last night to celebrate my birthday and we really can't understand why this restaurant is so highly rated. The set menu is pricey and very limited with 3 courses and snacks at £60 each, and we were informed you could have fewer courses but the price was vague if you did. Staff comprised of the owner (I guess) and... More

Firstly, thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your meal with us but it was a difficult situation from the outset as you made it perfectly clear that a formal, fine dining experience wasn't what you were expecting or what you wanted for your birthday meal. Our dinner menu... More

Where to start with Lumiere! There is nothing negative to say about this restaurant. Great ambiance, friendly staff, amazing food. My husband and I were wowed. Trying the tasting menu was an experience. Each course was the favourite until the next one arrived. Breadsticks with the best taramasalata ever, pork scratching with burnt apple sauce, the theatrical mozzarella, watermelon and... More

I was taken here by my family to celebrate my 50th birthday, and what an experience it was. We had the taster menu (9 courses) and every course was a delight. On top of that the staff were absolutely fantastic too. I can't wait to go again!
