Our Story

L’Artisan, the only genuine French Restaurant in Cheltenham !!

Why not enjoying a piece of France without going abroad? You won’t need a visa !!

Here is our news:

Dear customers, Mes Chers Clients,
It has been now eighteen days since l’Artisan had to close its doors.
As said in our previous newsletter, we had planned to organise a takeaway or delivery service but unfortunately it became obvious that it would have been an unwise and too early decision. We want to protect you, our staff and ourselves, to make a comeback as safe, healthy as possible!
However, most of you know us very well and know that we won’t stay home laying down on our sofa watching tv. We are like Lions in a cage (or more French: champagne shaken in a bottle!).
2 years ago, we have started to create a new project, a unique and truly delicious dessert to celebrate the best of Cheltenham. We finally finalized our project and we were opting for a soft launch this month…. when the Coronavirus hit all of us.
In our next newsletter, we will give you more explanations about our project…
We are working and creating new exciting recipes to welcome you as soon as it will be possible.
Head Chef Yves is cooking, baking and making lots of mess all around in our home’s (Elisabeth’s) kitchen !!!
We look forward to this day when we will be able to celebrate together what will perhaps be a new era… We all will have to learn lessons from this sad situation.
Everyday we think of all of you, our customers, and will carry on sending you newsletters to keep you updated.
Kind regards.

See you soon and keep safe!

Elisabeth, Head Chef Yves and all the team!

* In September, we have been recommended by the SUNDAY TIMES !!. “The Cultural Centre of The Cotswolds is a frontrunner for families and downsizers alike, says Tim Palmer”… There’s also an excellent roster of places to eat, notably L’Artisan, Lumiere, the venerable Champignon Sauvage (undaunted by its relegation from two stars to one in the 2019 Michelin guide) and Prithvi, a high-class curry house)”.
