L‘Artisan, the only Genuine French Bistro – Café du Midi in Cheltenham !! Why not enjoying a Piece of France without going abroad?

Dear Customer, Chers clients,
Over ten years of existence, l’Artisan restaurant has received several awards but the last reward was an amazing article in November 2021 from Jay Rayner on The Observer, the Guardian Newspaper.
From June 2022, Yves and I have chosen to orientate our business into a new direction to adapt and improve our lifestyle with a new challenge. We are converting our Fine Dinning restaurant into a French Bistro – Café du Midi venue and are opening the premises to our clientele from 10am to 4pm (3pm last order for hot food).
We are offering Morning Coffees (and Croissant!), Lunch Menu with our well-known Set Menu of the “Tour de France” of the different regions of our birth country in a relaxed French Style atmosphere.
Keep an eye on our website or ask to be registered to receive our Newsletter!
Kind regards. Elisabeth and Yves

NEW “TOUR DE FRANCE” Set menu (available from 23rd of May to 10th of June 2023) !!! (Check the details on our “Tour de France” page)
The Region of Centre Loire Valley !
2 Courses…£19.95 – 3 Courses…£24.95
The most significant feature of the region is the Loire Valley which conjures up the images of the famous Châteaux of the Loire created by the kings of France over many centuries and famous to this day for their splendour and beauty. Amongst the most famed are Chenonceau, Chambord, Amboise, Azay-le Rideau, Villandry and Blois. Many famous people are associated with the Val de Loire, amongst them the great French heroine, Jeanne d’Arc and Leonardo da Vinci, who is buried at Amboise.
