August’s featured restaurant was Le Champignon Sauvage, Suffolk Road, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL50 2AQ
Award: One Michelin star
Visit: 24 August 2019, lunch for two.
This is one of the best meals I have had this year. Chef Patron, David Everitt-Matthias creates dishes that are perfectly cooked and full of flavour. David is one of the UKs most inventive and creative chefs. The detail in the preparation and presentation of the dishes is clearly evident. Every course was outstanding. The front-of-house team, led by Helen Everitt-Matthias, provides exceptional service.
I can’t understand why they lost their two-star rating and now have one Michelin star. In my opinion this outstanding restaurant provides a two-star experience.
The menu changes seasonally with great care taken to source the finest local ingredients. I will be returning to try the new menu! If you are in Cheltenham or visiting the Cotswolds, then I recommend you visit this fabulous restaurant. You won’t be disappointed.
