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.

Excellent high standard - as always

We visited for my son's birthday - his choice. Food is always an excellent standard, with a large choice of vegetables. Service is maintained as attentive without being intrusive.

Worst lunch out I've had in a long time. Starter was sardines - tasted fishy but that's about all that could be said for it. My main course was goujons of sea bass. They were dry, overcooked & hardly a bite of fish in each. The saute potatoes were like rocks - so overcooked there was no soft potato left... More

Went to this restaurant with family with good reviews in mind. The service was strange.... young waiter kept on saying perfect. They weren't very happy looking. Very awkward indeed. Not very pleasant. Food... I had monkfish tails...very nice but soggy batter. My main was steak.... nice for the first 2 minutes but then went very cold dispite hot plates. Bread... More

Wonderful lunch out for Easter Sunday. Food was top notch, excellent quality and service was brilliant. Catered for my daughters Dairy allergy with no fuss and great attention. Faultless, will definitely be returning to this fabulous restaurant.

We love La Flambe - we go here for special occasions - birthdays, anniversaries, hi days and holidays. The food is amazing - beautiful quality, well cooked and presented. The service is attentive but unobtrusive. We couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Their Sunday lunches are the best for miles around. Not to be missed.

I have NEVER been disapointed with any visit I have had here. The hospitality & surroundings are first class and the food is always cooked to perfection and well presented. The staff are always well presented & cant do enough for you.

A lovely family get together at La Flambe. We have always had wonderful meals there and thought it was the perfect place to entertain our large extended family who were travelling back from a holiday in Wales to Cambridgeshire/Essex. Three generations tucked into delicious food and were very impressed by the extensive menu. Between us we tried almost everything on... More

This was our first visit to Le Flambé for our daughters 18th family birthday meal. We had high hopes for a lovely evening and we were not disappointed. The service and food were excellent. We were a mixed age range from 18 to 70, all ordering different meals from the set menu, all of which were enjoyed by all. They... More

This is about my fifth visit to this restaurant, but my first time writing about it. Absolutely faultless sunday lunch, fantastic service, and lovely atmosphere! I would be visiting this place every sunday if my bank balance and my waist band would allow it!

We went in a group of 12 - the service was excellent, really friendly staff and delicious food. Great pint of 6x, although if I was being picky you can never go wrong with more choices of beer.:-) Top job, this place would work for couples of bigger family groups like ours
