By far our favourite restaurant in Cheltenham. We had the taster menu with wine pairing and it was absolutely delicious. They get everything right here for fine dining regarding food, service and atmosphere. Expensive but really worth it.

Lumiere has a very good reputation & you usually need to book well ahead (unless you get lucky with a cancellation). It's a high end restaurant - as it was a special occasion we did the taster menu & wine tour (£130 pp), though you...More
