This was our first time at Lumiere and we were very impressed, a lovely relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, and some outstanding food.

We went for the 6-course lunch tasting menu with matching wines, some of the dishes were from the set lunch and others just arrived! All the courses had great quality ingredients and were very tasty with some lovely textures. The Tequila Slammer palate cleanser was a revelation! The matching wines were also first class and the portions generous, the Lebanese rose was a standout wine. The prices represent excellent value.

If you are visiting Cheltenham and want a high-quality memorable experience this is the place.

We booked this restaurant from the great reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed .
It was an amazing experience from the minute we walked through the door.
Charming service and gorgeous wines. The food was incredible, difficult to describe in words how good it was.
Just go there!
Thank you Lumiere, an anniversary meal we won't forget.

Hard to add to what's already been said, I had the evening tasting menu and flight of wines, every mouthful was superb !
I was impressed when I asked the waitress about one of the wines she knew where the grape variety was from and comparable wines from other regions.
The pace of the courses was just right, allowing me to savor the wines between courses. A thoroughly enjoyable evening and can't wait to visit again !

This was my third visit to Lumiere and my first trying their tasting menu. All courses were extremely tasty and attractively served (though I am getting a little tired of eating off slate!). Service as usual was quietly friendly and the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable. It is definitely a place to visit for that special occasion.

Saturday lunch, 3 courses, lovely fish and duck on offer with creative starters harnessing an explosion of flavours. Great combinations and innovative twists make this a real treat. Booking essential and for special occasions, but a real fine dining experience. Passion and creativity served with flare and originality.
