We decided to try this restaurant for lunch during a recent visit to Cheltenham. We were certainly not disappointed, the food was outstanding and both the presentation and service were faultless.
Very nice comfortable and tastefully decorated interior.
We look forward to returning when next in the area.

Very nice food, very well done. It was a much smaller restaurant than I expected, with about 20 covers in total. Service was very good - not too fussy, just spot on. Expect a twist on the usual. Wine list is extensive. The cheese selection is superb. Budget with £90 pp. Service is relaxed but on the ball. Top tip: Order the Scallops!

Fantastic service, presentation and extreme high end dining at fair prices in contemporary convivial setting - only a few tables so exclusive with attentive service at all times.

I have to concure with many other reviews of this wonderful restaurant and wonder why the Mitchelin inspectors havnt awarded a star yet. I have eaten in many Mitchelin star restaurants and have had no better dining experience than the Lumiere. Starting with the elegant but not stuffy interior , smily and knowledgable waitresses , an impressive wine list ( you must try the Chillian Pinot Noir ), ending with an extremely well balanced menu with faultless delivery and many surprise courses to show case the chefs obvious talent , and may I add at a very reasonable price. We left the restaurant feeling that we'd had a very special experience and value for money to boot. What more can you ask for!!
Now come on Mitchelin guide time to reward a deserving restaurant .

A beautiful meal, at a great pace. Felt very relaxed, and had some really inventive flavours. A real highlight was the scallop, and the tequila based dish. It's worth doing the wine flight to enhance the dishes and make the whole experience more enjoyable. Thank you very much for a great meal. We will be back.
