Those of you who read my restaurant reviews know that I pull no punches. Lumière is not easy to find with its understated exterior and simple but elegant sign. Once inside, you are enveloped in calm and decorous surroundings. White table linen and sparkling glassware and cutlery. Owner Helen and her front of house staff made us most welcome and... More

I don't think I've ever quite enjoyed food as much as I have there. Every bite was sublime and the presentation was gorgeous! The staff were welcoming and very knowledgable. The whole evening was integral to me and my girlfriend having the perfect weekend.

We enjoyed the Saturday lunch prix fixe and it really was outstanding. The food was served by knowledgable waitresses who were helpful without being over-bearing. The courses were all beautifully presented and delicious. The wine list was excellent and the Gin and Tonic's wonderful! We will certainly be returning here.

Fantastic selection of food with a good choice of wine, Catered for my wife's gluten free request with no loss of taste or quality, Service was excellent, unobtrusive yet attentive. The food ingredients, preparation and presentation were well up to Michelin standard. We will definitely be eating there again.

Went to the Lumiere last night for my husbands birthday. We have been before - but not for a while - so we knew it would be good It was fabulous. The ambience, the service and the exquisite food. The series of complementary canapés are superb and a taste if things to come. The tiny macaroni cheese croquettes were my... More

Excellent Food, great service. The dining room feels a little cramped. The food tastes wonderful and is presented to please the eye as well as the pallette. Pricey but good value. K Johal (Cheltenham Nr Birmingham).

My boyfriend and I visited Lumiere on Saturday 28th January as a (very - last August!) belated birthday meal for him and I the 5 month wait was more than worth it. We had the 9 course tasting menu with matching wines and everything was absolutely perfect. From the beautiful,quirky yet understated decor and crockery to the lovely bathroom, the... More

Lumiere has been on our list for a meal out for sometime, finally we booked for the end of January as our Christmas treat for me and my wife. Why have we waited so long because the whole experience was superb. We went for the tasting menu together with the flight of wine for each of us. The various samples... More
