Square Meal Review of Le Champignon Sauvage ?

Since launching Le Champignon Sauvage back in 1987, David and Helen Everitt-Mathias have turned this Cheltenham champion into a treasured local (and national) destination famed for its highly personal approach and exquisite, two-Michelin-starred food. Eating here is a “real joy”. David applies red-hot technique to top-drawer produce and seasonal pickings, creating a procession of peerlessly subtle flavours and studiously fashioned plates ranging from miso-glazed native lobster with a risotto of ‘oats groats’, onion and orange to a porcine feast involving a pavé of Gloucester Old Spot pork with braised cheek, pig’s head, smoked maple and raisin purée. After that, expect gloriously creative desserts such as an iced mousse of salted chicory root with vanilla rice pudding or bitter chocolate and olive tart with fennel ice cream to go with a treasure trove of classy French and New World wines. While David cooks, his wife Helen oversees the subtly toned dining room, ensuring that this bastion of urbane, civilised dining retains its sky-high personal and local cred. The atmosphere can sometimes feel “slightly stiff”, but we’re with readers who reckon that the food more than makes amends.

    Samphire and Salsify :: Le Champignon Sauvage

    Le Champignon Sauvage resides in the historic spa town of Cheltenham. It’s run by husband and wife team David Everitt-Matthias in the kitchen and Helen out the front and they’ve proudly held their two Michelin stars for numerous years. We hoped that the 2 hour 45 minute drive from London (with slight traffic) for lunch would be worth it and we were relived to say that it was...
