How many really good french eateries are there outside London that don't need a bank loan? Maison Bleue is a little gem of a restaurant , in the older part of town by the Abbey gates. You do need to book, and if leaving it till the morning, be flexible re time. We arrived for midday. Well staffed, with mainly... More

This restaurant has been a benchmark of excellence for many years, as have the whole group. The menu is always excellent, the quality of food outstanding wonderfully complemented by the exceptional staff. My recommendation is to have the cheese, the knowledge of the staff is only surpassed by the cheese themselves. The wine menu is comprehensive while not overpriced, you... More

Title says it all really, visited for 3 course lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit and would recommend to anyone going to Bury St Edmunds. The Beetroot starter was excellent with an added twist to create the cheese and beetroot tradition. This was quickly followed a sumptuous pheasant dish. The whole experience was further enhanced by very attentive staff that where... More

I've been fortunate enough to eat at many of the so called celebrity restaurants, Heston, Gordon, Rick et al Maison Bleue is at least their equal and very often far superior, Its not pretentious but offers homely but slick and professional service. The wine list is magnificent but has many bottles in the low £20s, the food is like fine... More

From the moment you walk in it feels special to be at Maison Bleue. It is not a huge restaurant and it has nice intimate feel to it. Love the décor. All the staff is French which adds to the uniqueness. There is a very good a la cart menu with lots of delicious choices but the set menu isn't... More

visited for the first time on a Saturday lunchtime. The three course set menu was excellent value, and beautifully presented. Crisp linen, well turned out and knowledgeable staff. Well worth a visit not a surprise that it is the top rated restaurant in Bury

Dropped in on the off chance for casual lunch. Certainly didn't regret it. Very helpful and professional staff. Excellent food and wine. Couldn't fault the experience.

It has become our family tradition to celebrate Christmas with a meal at Maison Bleue. This year was no exception. We have been to this superb restaurant many times now and the food and service on this occasion was impeccable as always. There was a good deal of choice on the dinner menu and the only problem posed was deciding... More
