We were in a group of 15 for dinner and the service was truly exceptional. Add superb food fine wines and a lovely ambience and you have a great restaurant. We have been here many times before and the overall experience remains excellent. Long may it continue and very well done to the management and staff.

Have visited La Flambe several times and never been disappointed. Always made welcome by enthusiatic and attentive staff. Menu range is excellent and set price menus give great value for money whilst maintaining choice.

Dont trust the online booking , that didnt work! Lovely food , lovely place , excellent staff the only thing to let it down was the 1990.s Argos cutlery. A little pricey and a place of this quality deserves better cutlery to make the dining table as good as everything else.

our second visit, this time with friends. Nice atmosphere, good food and big portions. Really nice to have a good quality restaurant near to home without having to travel into a town or city. Good service, nice wine menu and a good choice of meals.

This was recommended by a friend and we were so glad, HUGE portions, whole rack of lamb ( 7 cutlets ) with vegetables, wife had Cajun chicken which she was unable to finish as there was so much. Must book at weekends.

We go for lunch about once in every 6 weeks. The food is of a high standard which is consistent. Can recommend this for discerning couples.

A group of 8 of us 'elderly males' have just had lunch here. Staff could not have been more obliging particularly when looking after one of us who was in a big self propelled wheel chair. Set menu is impressive...which meant it took some time for us all to decide on what we wanted!! Food was excellent and beer from... 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.
