    Had a lovely meal, haven't scored highest mark due to not all main course options being available. Disappointing sweet options, Pannacotta not on menu and no 'fresh fruit' or 'lighter' choices available. But we'll be back for more of your dauphinois potatoes.

    We have eaten here many times over the years and have never had a disappointing meal! The service is fab and the village that the restaurant is situated in is beautiful. We’ll certainly be back again soon. Thanks again.

    Always excellent food and service, the portions are generous, the menu is varied, it’s difficult to choose as the menu choice is so good, even for the set menu, which is unusual. I love the attention to detail, eg linen napkins, Melba toast that is brought to your table. Service is attentive but not in your face, they know how to look after guests. The best restaurant in the area without a doubt. The dauphinois potatoes are simply delicious 😋

    Our first visit and celebrating our wedding anniversary. We were welcomed well, and throughout the quality and manner of the staff excellent. The food was disappointing for its cost. The meat lamb and fillet steak beautifully cooked but spoilt by overwhelming sauce in volume and taste. The informal casual setting- style of cutlery, relaxed tables etc were more casual informal brasserie, whereas the pricing of the food was more high end refined dining! We can get better food for that price elsewhere near us and so we probably won’t splash out again there!

    Friendly atmosphere wuth a good menu. Table very well laid, good choice of wine, spirits and beers. Descent size portions and very good quality vegetables and meats combined with timely service by pleasant staff. All in all a most acceptable dining experience in a well thought and designed dining room at very reasonable prices. I'll definitely go again.

    We came to La Flambe for a Thai night. We were looking forward to it and weren't disappointed. We came at 7, the restaurant was already nearly full and buzzing with a great atmosphere. There was a lovely selection of starters, and as a vegetarian I could eat 3 of those, which I really appreciated. A Thai spicy soup made a delicious course before the main arrived. I chose a sweet potato Massaman curry, which had a lovely rich flavour and was nicely complemented by jasmine rice, while my partner had lime and chilli hake, which he said was delicious. We finished with fresh chilli pineapple and a Thai mango tiramisu. It was lovely to try so many different dishes and flavours. As ever the service, was slick, friendly and attentive. The meal was superb value for money and I would recommend La Flambe to anyone looking for a special evening in an atmospheric setting.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. As returning customers, the welcome was special and although busy, the service was good. We enjoyed our starters ( sautéd mushrooms & Onion soup), as mains I had pork fillets in a wine based sauce and they were delicious ( and plentiful) and my husband had a filo pastry pie which he was not so keen on. We chose chocolate ice cream and coffee & tea after and the ice-cream was beautifully presented in a sundae glass and topped with strawberries. A really pleasant , relaxing evening , thank you.

    We both had fillet steak, and it was clear the meat was top quality, all dishes were perfectly cooked, all food excellent. Service was exemplary and overall it was a wonderful meal and experience. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. La Flambe is an excellent restaurant thet is consistently good, you won’t be disappointed if you go.

    The food was amazing. So full of flavour. The dauphinois were the best I’ve tasted. Definitely go again. Only negative was sitting in a corner with two large tables on either side so was very noisy and we couldn’t hear each other talking.

    A very disappointing second visit here. The main course was ruined by being presented with roast potatoes that had obviously been rehashed from lunchtime (or earlier!) Having struggled through those, I was then presented with a lemon meringue tart that was almost inedible. Oh, and what is the point in asking when booking if it is a special occasion (birthday) when not even a token extra is forthcoming. This one is struck off our go to list.

    The restaurant staff were super welcoming even tho we arrived early for our booking on a very busy Easter Sunday. They were very friendly and polite and made my experience a joy when dining here. 5* for the service. The Sunday roast was delicious and I would definitely visit again if in the area.

    We had a birthday lunch here and I have to say, it was just fabulous. The restaurant is easy to get to from the motorway and has plenty of parking. Decor is pleasant inside and the tables are spaced far enough apart to give you privacy. Service was impeccable, the food was well presented, delicious and had good sized portions. Value for money was excellent and we will certainly return.

    Another lovely meal at a great local restaurant. My wife and I have been going to La Flambe for 20 plus years. The service is excellent with friendly staff who give the right amount of attention. The food has always been great hence us returning year on year. You never leave hungry that's for certain.

    Perhaps we had unrealistic expectations based on Tripadvisor reviews but we felt that the food we experienced did not justify the price of the meal. The ham and cheese croquets I had for a starter were underwhelming. My partners sardines were very oily. The mains again, underwhelming and the accompanying sauces had a strange gloopy texture. The service was pleasant but a little chaotic and we had to signal several times to get attention. For the price paid I don’t think I would hurry back.
