This one of those restaurants that you wish you lived near to, or that were a tad closer. Great food, excellent staff and in a beautiful little village. If you are ever travelling on the M4 or actually within 100 miles of this place then...More

Dined here two nights ago and what a very pleasant evening it was. We were greeted very warmly by a young lady who quickly organised us a drink that we then sat and enjoyed whilst perusing the menu. The menu is not vast but more...More

Possibly because there were only two other tables being used this restaurant seemed to be without either atmosphere or character when we visited for a Friday lunch. The 4 in our party all had food that at best could only be described as average and...More

Been meaning to go here for a long time after it was highly recommended by several friends. I don't know if it's changed hands, but it really didn't live up to expectations. It was pretty terrible actually, and not worth the money. I agree with...More

We arrived frustrated from a long hold up on M4. The service was good and friendly- we were given time to catch our breath. The food was good but portions too big

The acoustics are very good making conversations easy. There is a lovely view of the church if you sit outside for a drink. The staff are friendly and cheerful.

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.
