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.

We went to la Flambe for my daughters birthday. The food and service was good. The only thing which I was concerned about at the time was that when asking what Items on the menu were gluten free, one waiter contradicted what another had told me, so the chef was consulted.

This was our first visit to this restaurant, initially the appearance is lovely,must I felt that the tables were a little close together....we visited here for my husbands birthday as it was recommended by friends. My husband and I ordered the Chateaubriand, not a cheap dish...the beef was cooked to perfection, however, we weren't disappointed. The choice of sweets and... More

We have been here once before, and it was average at best then. We returned today for Sunday lunch, as it has such good reviews that we thought it was worth another try. When we arrived, we were ignored for several minutes, which set the tone really. Our table seemed to have been placed where it was as an afterthought.... More

We’ve enjoyed numerous visits to La Flambe over the years but last Saturday was quite special, we had some chav entertainment. Sitting near us was Emily B and her family who had presumably ventured out from The Hungry Horse, their usual dinning haunt, to order well done steak and chips. Overhearing someone ask for “tomato sauce” in La Flambe was... More

DO NOT GO HERE. For the extortionate prices you would expect good food with even better service, not once was our table checked, the steaks (all cooked to different requests) were totally impossible to cut through, especially before having to wait 10 minutes for steak knives. Empty glasses were left on the tables for a good hour and a half... More
