Our Desserts £4.95:

2) The Horsechoux :

Since we found the name Horsechoux®, to create a dessert that could represent the town of Cheltenham, with the right chocolate thickness for a perfect crunch and the right smoothness of the cream, it took us almost 2 years.
We are pleased to offer it to you as part of our takeaway service. The shape of the dessert is a nod to the racing heritage of this classic and classy Regency town.
This dessert not only looks amazing, but it is absolutely delicious! A combination of choux pastry, cream with various flavours, crunchy “feuilletine” with a chocolate topping. We are truly excited to bring this dessert to you at L’Artisan!
For a start we will have an interesting range of flavours…
The Racecourse – hazelnut and almond praline, perfect for nut lovers along with…
The Pitville Park – pistachio
The Pump Room– zingy lemon and
The Queens – raspberry, summer on a plate!
All of the above can have either a milk or dark chocolate horseshoe on the top – for you to choose!
Unique, classic fresh Artisan patisserie created just for you to celebrate the best of Cheltenham at the takeaway price of £4.95. Website:

* 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)”.
