We have highlighted some of the best Cheltenham restaurants to help you with your decision.
Our Recommended Cheltenham Restaurants
Lumiere is a small restaurant in the centre of Cheltenham run by a young
couple. Mr Lumiere (not his real name, in fact lumiere means light, if my A level French is still with me) is the chef and what a chef he is too! Michelin look like they are keeping an eye on them so hopefully they will receive a star very soon. Mind you a Michelin Star normally means prices go up so I would get in there ASAP before they do!
Mrs Lumiere is the front of house hostess who looks after your every need, she does a great job of making you feel at home very quickly. Her knowledge on wine isn’t too bad either!
Type of food: Their menu changes therefore we recommend finding out before you book however below is the menu as of date of article. Speaking of booking, it’s a normal 2-3 week waiting list for this restaurant.

The Brassiere Blanc
Located in the Queens Hotel, this Raymond Blanc Cheltenham restaurant is very well run which is lucky as the restaurant is a fair size! Their staff are very friendly and it doesn’t seem to matter how big your group is you are looked after very well indeed. A good choice for all three courses so there should be something for everyone.

Click for Menu
Located in a converted old cinema The Daffodil in Cheltenham
have created a relaxed atmosphere in what is a big room. The kitchen sits up high on the old stage where you can see the chefs hard at work. Located slightly out of the centre it’s not the easiest to find but worth making the effort. Up stairs has a comfy cocktail bar for your pre-dinner drinkies and the restaurants tables vary is size depending on your group. For weekends or big groups you will need to book your table in advance, a week should be enough.
Type of food: All sorts from steak to fancy.

Monty’s Bar and Brassiere
Or just Monty’s by the locals. Attached to the side of the George Hotel Monty’s
is probably known best for the downstairs cocktail bar, which we have ‘tested’ many times and it’s very nice. However we shouldn’t forget that it also serves food. They don’t have the biggest menu but what they do have they make very well, we had no complaints at all. If you want your meal to be more private they have a great separate room which you can book in advance.
