Visited here as a celebration for my husbands birthday For several years we have been going to La Flambé, from way back when Manuel ran la Flambé in Malmesbury, overlooking the Abbey. La Flambé is now located in a pub called the Vintage at Sutton Benger, not quite as picturesque as all those years ago, but still very nice in... More

Had heard loads about this restaurant. Saying thank you to my best friend provided the best excuse to visit. Amazing food, service, beer and wine. Not to expensive, subtle, sophisticated. Check the postcode before visiting. You'll love it

We take our friends whenever we have a need to impress. Perfect in every respect. There are many reasonable restaurants in the Chippenham area - the La flambé tops them all - from placing the booking to say goodbye. Excellent in the extreme.

We moved to the North Wiltshire area about three and a half years ago and since then I've been driving along the B4069 through Sutton Benger a couple of times most weeks. Little did I realise that within 100 yards of this road lay a gem of a restaurant , La Flambe. A couple of weeks back I was searching... More

We visited again for a special birthday celebration(6 of us) and the standard appears even greater! Having delivered ballons and banners earlier in the day, they had put them up around the table to surprise the birthday person even though it was a Saturday and extremely busy! The food was excellent with no delay in the service and the staff... More

Bit on the expensive side about a third more than I usually pay for a meal for two so it's a once in awhile treat ,but I have to say the food was worth every penny, the staff were all on the ball and very friendly

We were pleasantly welcomed by young staff and shown to our table. The décor is a bit dated. There were five of us and four ordered starters. My starter, mushrooms in garlic and chilli, was just overly spiced for my liking and not very appealing to look at. Two of us ordered the sole and it had been poorly filleted.... More

parking is limited so it is good to get there early in the evening. Reception at the bar is good and friendly and you are put at your ease straight away. Service was equally good although we did have to ask for the wine list rather than have it on the table with the menu. The meal was of really... More

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.
