Description: Lumière is intimate fine dining restaurant set in the heart of beautiful, Regency Cheltenham. Run by Chef Jon Howe and his wife Helen. Lumière offers a short inspirational menu and friendly, informative service. Jon excels in being able to put a new and interesting twist on traditional dishes, the menus change frequently allowing Jon to make the most of the fresh produce available to him.

My husband and I had an unexpected few days in Cheltenham and saw Luminaire on Trip Advisor. I did not expect to get a booking at such short notice, but, luckily for us they had room. We had the 9 course taster menu with wine and ate food we had never eaten before at a standard parallel to the 2 and 3 Michelin star restaurants we have previously eaten in. The staff we friendly and knowledgable and altogether the evening turned into an unforgettable experience. Well worth a detour!

Lovely ambience, outstanding food, not cheap of course but not to be missed! It's an intimate dining experience, ideal for a special/romantic evening, the restaurant is tiny but as they say, the best things come in small packages!

We have visited Lumiere on a number of occasions, and it has not let us down yet. The new decor is elegant warm and welcoming. The food is consistently outstanding whether eating the tasting menu or from the normal menu. Jon’s attention to detail in the food, and the way he creates such wonderful flavour combinations and works of art, with portion sizes just right, is a delight. This is matched by the exceptional front of house team, led by Helen. The quality of their wine matches the quality of everything else, and I would recommend this restaurant for a wonderful fine dining evening out.
