    I have always found the food, service and ambience to be the best. La Flambé is my favourite eaterie in particular for those special events in life. When you take into consideration the quality and quantity of the food it's not expensive either. Bob C

    Nut roast was burnt, dry and tasteless even though they kindly replaced it with a less burnt version. Vegetarian paella was excellent. All vegetables were excellent. Staff were brilliant. Wine was superb and the Baileys puddings tasted great.

    Another excellent meal at La Flambe, noise levels in the tunnel are normally louder than elsewhere due to the nature of what it is / its construction which always think would be better for couples vs groups. Service a little slow last night, abandoned another round of drinks and dessert and also had to chase for the bill but they were busy otherwise staff as always polite and attentive

    We had a table for 5 at La Flambé on Saturday night and had a superb time. Our food was freshly cooked and prepared, had delicious flavours and served by polite and cheerful waiting staff. We had various starters all of which were delicious. We had chateaubriand between two, rack of lamb between another two and a sirloin steak. The meat was some of the most flavoursome and tender that I’ve had. Their meat supplier is excellent as is the chef that prepared and cooked everything. Vegetables were cooked al denté, were colourful and nicely presented. We barely had room for dessert but shared a cheesecake and lemon parfait between us. Again, both very good. We had drinks before dinner and a couple of bottles of wine and considered our bill to be very fair and reflected the quality of food and service we received. We highly recommend La Flambé and will definitely return.

    Excellent food and service, definitely felt a bit special - great for a birthday meal. Could have been a bit warmer to start with in the tunnel bit where we sat, and got a bit noisy as it filled up (Friday evening). But overall we thought it was great and will definitely be going back.

    Finally visiting La Flambe, after living in the area for many years, we now regret not visiting sooner. A warm welcome by friendly and discreetly attentive staff made for a relaxing atmosphere. Food and wine were excellent. Th goats cheese starter particularly tasty. Good sized portions for each course, combine to make it very good value. We will return soon.

    The only downside was that when the potatoes were served the waitress spooned about two thirds of what was in the dishes and then took the dishes away! I just wondered what they do with what was left, surely they don't serve it to another customer? It would have been nice to have the choice (as they were so delicious,) if we wanted more but having said that, the amount was about right. Apart from that the meal was lovely.

    I have been here on a number of occasions, always choosing from the set menu. This is without doubt the best value for money in the area and an oasis of culinary excellence in what sometimes can be a dessert of mediocrity. Well worth a visit.

    Booked this restaurant for four of us for lunch Sunday 14th Jan 2024, on previous visits on weekdays the food has always been superb. Based on this I recommended us to try the Sunday lunch menu, we all agreed that this turned out to be one of the best Roast Lunches we had all had in a very long time. A big thankyou to Freddie, who was one of our servers, for his recommendation to try the Lamb for mains. Two of us chose this & whilst the other two chose Beef & Belly Pork, which were delightful, the consensus of opinion was Freddie's recommendation stole the show. A big shout our for fran, and the other members of the team for making our visit so memorable. All of us will definitely revisit to sample more of the menu, all agreeing that the food quality on offer was outstanding.
