Visited recently for dinner and had a superb meal and evening in general. The service was attentive and friendly and we felt very welcome. We had a lovely table away from the door, with plenty of space on the table. The canapés were delicious and thoroughly enjoyable and the homemade bread was wonderful. We both enjoyed starters, main courses and... More

A Christmas Eve lunch at Lumiere should be a treat and thus foray into the seven course tasting menu certainly was. The food is clever, cooked with care and precision and just offbeat enough to make it a truly memorable treat. Highlights included a wonderful risotto with charred leaks and black garlic, a delicious medallion of venison and an extraordinary... More

We are the awkward couple, I'm vegetarian, he is coeliac. We usually end up with third rate food in what are usually first rate restaurants. Lumiere was heaven for us! The vegetarian menu is every bit as delicious and carefully put together as the one with meat, and nearly all the main menu was OK for my husband, he was... More

The taste, attention to detail, colour, texture - all excellent. The staff are helpful without being intrusive; we've dined here several times and look forward to our next visit.

Booked on a whim during a few nights away. Beautiful food, complex textures, and wonderful presentation. Lovely staff and very attentive service. As I have a number of dietary requirements, I was a little worried about the menu however the chef was extremely accommodating and imaginative with switching out ingredients and courses. In particular, the tequila slammer sorbet/sphere of lime/and... More

We brought my mum here for a special family lunch as a birthday celebration and it was the perfect setting. We had the tasting menu and every dish was delicious, interesting and occasionally surprising. From the beetroot crisps with a goats cheese dip, to the deconstructed tequila slammer (yes, really) to the damson souffle, every course was delicious. Couldn't recommend... More

We have visited Lumiere on a number of occasions over the last few years and the food has been consistently excellent. The service is superb, welcoming and perhaps less formal than in some top-class restaurants. Desserts are absolutely fantastic. Be sure to leave room for one. I would rate Lumiere as the best restaurant in Cheltenham, in spite of the... More
