Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS -

» DIN­ERS at a Chel­tenham res­tau­rant can en­joy meals once again af­ter a mishap while walk­ing forced the man­age­ment to close for eight weeks.

Jon Howe broke his an­kle when he slipped on a cliff path ear­lier in the sum­mer forc­ing him and his wife He­len to tem­po­rar­ily close Lu­miere, their Clarence Pa­rade res­tau­rant.

Reser­va­tions had to be can­celled at the 3AA Rosette award win­ning venue but af­ter a “tricky” cou­ple of months it has now started serv­ing food again.

Show­ing an X-ray of the frac­tured an­kle and an im­age of Jon in a boot cast on in­sta­gram, the man­age­ment said: “It’s great to fi­nally be back open!

“An eight-week forced ‘hol­i­day’ al­ways sounds like a great idea, that is un­til your head chef/dar­ling hus­band slips on a cliff path and breaks his an­kle. “It’s been a tricky cou­ple of months with the res­tau­rant forced to close but we would re­ally like to thank all of our cus­tomers who’s reser­va­tions we had to can­cel for be­ing so un­der­stand­ing, our sup­pli­ers and staff for also for be­ing so un­der­stand­ing and to all of our friends and fam­ily for help­ing to keep our san­ity.”

Jon said his staff had been keep­ing busy do­ing ev­ery­thing from help­ing out at award win­ning Bris­tol res­tau­rant Casamia, bot­tling wine at Ast­ley Vine­yard, sam­pling gin at Sib­ling Dis­tillery and even help­ing tidy up Re­gent Street. He­len and Jon won a vic­tory against Tri­pad­vi­sor af­ter a mem­ber of the public posted a re­view of a dif­fer­ent res­tau­rant on a page ded­i­cated to their venue.

The web­site even­tu­ally took down the in­cor­rect re­view af­ter they were con­tacted by the Echo.
