We can recommend the vegetarian tasting menu - 7 delicious courses of imaginative ways of combining seasonal ingredients. The service was attentive but not intrusive.

    The cooking was excellent. Particularly the fish dishes were extremely well prepared.

    My Wife and I attended Lumiere whilst in Cheltenham for our anniversary and had an absolutely fantastic experience. Helen and her team were great hosts and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. We went for the 9 course tasting menu, with pairing wines for me. Every course was exquisite and those that had a wine pairing, were complimented superbly by the selections. Having visited a Michelin starred restaurant in the same town the following night, we were both in complete agreement that Lumiere had been the far better experience. I can’t see it being long before similar accolades are bestowed upon Lumiere! We will definitely be returning one day and would not hesitate to recommend the restaurant to anyone.

    Delightful visit to this restaurant, may not be the easiest place to find, ( was outside the door and still didn’t see it ) but I hope they don’t put up to much signage as I would most like to return and get a reservation, staff were very friendly service was great and very informative, the tasting menu that we had was delightful, thought prices were fair, plenty options on the wine list, only a small restaurant but was impressed with the table layout as you didn’t feel that other tables were crowding you, cannot wait to return. Excellent.

    We had a wonderful dining experience at Lumiere- first class service, together with a modern and inventive menu.
    We enjoyed the vegetarian menu for two, on a weekday evening. A warm welcome on arrival, the restaurant has a great ambiance, with subtle classical music, and a cosy atmosphere.
    The meal started with interesting amuse bouches and freshly baked bread. All courses were excellent, we particularly enjoyed the potato and sage terrine. All dishes were well balanced, with great attention to detail and varying textures.
    Highly recommended if you happen to be in Cheltenham or the Cotswolds area, booking ahead is advised!

    Me and my partner came here for my 23rd birthday - I'm not normally to sort to like these "fancier" restaurants however I was far beyond shocked at the level of food they put out.

    We went for the 9 course tasting menu, and let me tell you, the chefs here have absolutely nailed this menu. They have managed to create such an elegant, balanced menu that takes you somewhere else with each dish.

    Some may think that the menu is on the pricier side, but for me, you can't put a price on having the best dish in your life. The crispy chicken and scallop dish, was by far the best thing I've ever eaten, and I think I'm likely to eat. Absolute respect to the chefs for putting together such a genius dish.

    The food was only enhanced by the experience that the floor gave us - each server knew the dishes inside and out. I'd like to give a special shout out to the young gentleman with the glasses who, after noticing we weren't the "usual" type of customer instantly adapted his approach and treated us a little more casually and had a laugh with us which put us at ease.

    Overall, Lumiere has changed my perception on what I used to call "pompous" restaurants. Absolutely made my birthday a night to remember.

    We shall be booking to come back soon. Couldn't recommend enough. Thanks all at Lumiere.

    A delicious experience as usual. I celebrated my birthday with 3 friends, and we all commented on the very high standard of the food and service. Always a treat to visit this restaurant. Highly commended

    A great dining experience. We had the tasting menu with the accompanying Wines and it was all delicious.
    Our favourite dishes were the scallops and the venison. The plumb infused sake is a favourite of mine since first tasting it at Lumiere.
