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.

Fantastic food, efficient and friendly waiting staff. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone of my acquaintance.

Maybe could do with another waiter/waitress as the only tiny negative was that it was not always easy to attract the waiters attention.

We visited La Flambe for a family celebration and would never go there again.

There was a very rude male member of staff who sounded french, we found it hard to understand him as he barked out our food when he brought it to the table. When we asked him to repeat what he was saying he called us idiots. A very rude man.

Arrived at 7.50 for meal at 8pm, were shown to our table was given the menu and also wine menu, chose the wine and was with us quite quickly, we ordered our food main meals no starter, the meal was lovely cooked to perfection but at 9pm we were ask about ordering a dessert, I said about l0 mins please, well at 9.40 we still were awaiting for our order to be taken, taxi arriving at 9.45 so obviously had to go, upon paying the bill I questioned why we did not get our dessert, the answer we are extremely busy and sometimes this happens. We have visited with friends on a few occasions and the food is always great but you do seem to have a problem when it comes to desserts, in fact no dessert is what you get.

I have been here a few times and the food is always excellent, The set menu is fantastic value. The wine list always has a good selection also. My most recent visit was on a saturday night and unfortunately the staff seemed very thin on the ground, they could do with more staff at busy periods. The staff when they did arrive at the table were very friendly and nice. Other than that well worth a visit. Reservations essential at weekends.
