Description: We have been established in the small market town of Malmesbury since 1986 and moved to our current location in the historic village of Sutton Benger in 2002. The building dates back to 1726 and was built by the grandfather of Joseph Fry, the founder of 'Fry's Chocolate'. The main focus of our food is French cuisine with Spanish and Italian influences throughout the menu. Our menu also includes fresh fish, English and Scotch beef steaks, and a traditional Sunday lunch.

It was great to return to this wonderful restaurant. Since my last visit it has been completely refurbished and looks great, with a lovely warm feeling. Our meal was on time and all dishes cooked to perfection. The Chateaubriand was "to die for", the Sardine fillets starter tender and moist, and the mixed berry cream meringue delicious. That was just... More

2014 was my 11th Christmas Day Lunch at the La Flambe and although the restaurant was fully booked with small parties, I was not disapointed as I had already chosen the menu back in November. The starter of a Cornet of smoked salmon filled with crab & prawns was delicious followed by Poached fillet of Lemon sole, The main of... More

Reader's may find this had to relate to, but 'our crowd' have just seen in the New Year, for the FIFTH consecutive year, at what is without question, our favourite eating house - again, we were not to be disappointed. Having pre-ordered our choices, from a good variety of courses, we arrived and showed to our 'usual' table amid a... More

We have dined at La Flambé many times & are fortunate to have this little gem close to where we live. We have always been impressed with the high quality of food & attentiveness of the staff every time we have visited. Nothing is too much trouble for them. To put things into perspective we visited a Michelin Star restaurant... More

This place is by far and away the worst restaurant that I have ever eaten in !! The arrogance of the owner/chef is astounding !! He most certainly does not take criticism, behaves like Marco P White but without any skill. Do yourselves a favour and avoid at all costs !!

We have been to a few good restaurants over the years but this one is a standout. A group of four adults had a perfect lunch at this French restaurant. Entrees, mains and sweets were all outstanding. Service was polite and prompt while also relaxed and friendly. The two bottles of wine we had were lovely. Location and ambience is... More

We are frequent users of La Flambe when we have a special occasion or just want to spoil ourselves. We had heard that New Years Eve at La Flambe was a night to remember and invited 2 other couples to join us back in the summer, as it does get booked up very quickly once they start to take bookings....

We chose La Flambe for our anniversary meal. We had not eaten at La Flambe for a few years and were pleasantly surprised to see it had been beautifully decorated. We had an amazing meal. Crispy squid was delicious, tender and tasty. We both had fillet steak, and win it was the best we've ever tasted! I gad creme brûlée... More
