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 restaurant

We were recommended to La Flambe by a friend and we were not disappointed. The setting is unique and the food was as good as we expected. The prices are reasonable especially the set menus. We will definitely be returning.

Our favourite restaurant where the service and food is the highest quality. The silver service is attention to detail. All staff polite and exceptionally helpful and caring. The food is by far the best quality and quantity and we continue to return for the last 6 years. We celebrate special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. A true testament to... More

OK, we were there on a busy Saturday night, but what was a very well-cooked and presented meal was somewaht spoiled by the extremely noisy ambience and rushed service. There is little space to have a pre-dinner drink and we were given little time to ponder the menu before being herded to our table, well before the appointed time. The... More

Visited for my wife's birthday with a group of friends. Combination of meat lovers and vegetarians and lots of choice on the menu for all tastes. Food was excellent and the service was first class from the moment we arrived until we left. Good wine list as well. Would highly recommend.

Went for father’s day a group of 6 – service was excellent as was the food. Went for the 3 course set lunch menu which also offers excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

Our son took us here for dinner. We had a great evening and delicious chateaubriand with dauphinoise potatoes. We had 2 portions between 4 of us (they are for 2-3 people) but my husband has a small appetite, so one portion would probably have been enough
