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.

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

Having visited with a large group and eating off the fixed menu, whilst it had variety and was inviting, I chose the sirloin. I requested medium/well done, it arrived well done and was quite tough. No staff appeared having served everyone to enquire if the food was acceptable. The place was busy with staff run off their feet. I recommend... More

We visited La Flambe on a day that the Daily Telegraph had an article on the use of review sites, such as trip adviser. The main point they highlighted as resulting in a lower rating was poor service. Anyway on to our visit. We arrived slightly early for our 7.30 reservation and were happy to be shown straight to our... More
