We chose to come to Lumiere to celebrate our anniversary. We came prepared with a slightly fuller wallet as we wanted to do the famous tasting menu. The tasting menu is 9 course, 6 savoury and 3 sweet, for £80 per person. We did not regret this decision. Every course was sensational. My personal highlights were the sweet corn course,... More

Together with 4 friends, we went to the Lumière to celebrate a special birthday year, and a celebration it truly was! The restaurant seats 20 people, and we had a table for 5 at th front. We opted for the 9-course Taster Menu. This was first-class, presentation brilliant, served on a variety of plates and dishes. Obviously the courses were... More

Went for the taster menu last night with my friend before she leaves for America. It was such a fantastic experience and the food was amazing.

I have had dinner this evening and have been blown away (metaphorically!) by the creativity and quality of the cooking at this restaurant. We had three courses. Each faultless and all as good as or better than dishes I have eaten at 3 Michelin starred restaurants... Lumiere has gone to the top of my list of favourite restaurants. It is... More

Four of us had dinner at Lumiere on Saturday. We had been twice before, a few years ago, but it was a first visit for our friends. For us everything was just as impressive as it has been before - from the greeting when we arrived to the service, the ambience and the food just utterly mind blowing. Everything was... More

Stopped over in Cheltenham on our way to Bath. Found the town really dead and empty. As much as i love Georgian houses the place was just depressing. So our dinner at Lumiere was a major highlight of the day. Clean lines, modern feel, creative food with great flavours all accompanied by great service. Dimmed lights made our dinner very... More

We chose to celebrate out anniversary in Cheltenham so that we could eat here and we weren't disappointed. As describes on their website, the restaurant is 'hidden away' but once we found it we were warmly welcomed into a fresh and intimate room. The service was excellent from start to finish, and the lady behind the bar was very helpful.... More
