Set in 22 acres of stunning parkland Paris House is located on the Duke of Bedford's Estate in Woburn. Paris House blends modern culinary techniques with traditional foods to create a 6 course tasting menu. Paris House was originally built in 1878 in Paris. At the end of the 19th Century the timber framed building was dismantled and shipped piece by piece to its current home in the stunning grounds of Woburn Park. In January 2014 Paris House was bought by the businesses’ award winning Executive Chef Phil Fanning. The restaurant is managed as a family business by Fanning and his wife Claire.
The restaurant’s tasting menus are based around dishes constructed with natural flavour combinations using the best seasonal produce available. Each menu has been carefully created to showcase the ingredients and provide you with a memorable dining experience.

    This was an anniversary celebration. Great location, beautiful house in parklands, good reception on arrival. Personalized card on table congratulating us on our anniversary. Nice touch! Tables very basic, not attractive and close together in a restaurant with little atmosphere. Champagne offered on arrival at £16 a glass, no other food options offered other than their tasting menu at £89pp. Wide selections of wines but very expensive. £40 for a basic Rose. Overall from a value point of view very disappointed.....nothing special here!! Food it self is small portions with each course described to you but forgotten as soon as waiter left. Complicated and fussy. Made out to be more than what it is.....much better value available close by. Cannot see this surviving in current format.

    Fantastic experience. Food could not be faulted. Setting is beautiful. Staff were attentive, knowledgable and interesting. Only minor thing was there was a baby and we were pleased it wasn’t next to us. The car park was also full which is not a good place to start at.

    A fantastic experience, something to keep for special occasions. Superbly presented high quality food and wine by knowledgeable and attentive staff. Some reviews I saw mentioned feeling slightly rushed, we certainly didn’t, I’d say it was just right. Eye-wateringly expensive, but we did go for it with all options thrown in, so not really surprised. One to remember.

    My wife, her sister and I celebrated my wife's 70th birthday at Paris House. We had the lunch-time tasting menu with paired wines. The menu was well thought through. The food was superb in terms of flavours, textures and presentation and the paired wines were a very well selected revelation. The service was peerless. Highly recommended.

    A wonderful place for a meal. The setting is beautiful; the dining room peaceful with tables well spaced; the service was impeccable and the food absolutely delicious. Every course was beautifully presented and explained and the sommelier gave us good guidance on wines to choose as we did not opt to take the wine flight. Thoroughly recommended for a special meal.

    Fantastic meal and wines. It is slightly bright in the restaurant giving it a canteen feel more than restaurant. This is very easily fixed, however I noted this two years ago and it’s still the same, which is a shame as everything else was perfect.

    Paris House doesn't disappoint, whether it's a meal for two or a meal with friends. Every course of the six course tasting menu was creative, delicious and beautifully presented. Service was efficient and unobtrusive with the serving staff being knowledgeable about each dish. The decor is unfussy and noise levels being kept down by soft furnishings. We love this restaurant!

    We booked Paris house as a treat for our anniversary, it was on our bucket list to dine at a Michelin restaurant. We were not disappointed , the setting is beautiful and the food was amazing , twinned with the service. The weather was warm and sunny so we were able to finished our afternoon by sitting on the terrace, watching the deer . We both really enjoyed our afternoon and we both would like to visit again.

    Incredible experience, approaching the building with deer grazing peacefully, I knew we were going to have a wonderful evening and indeed it was. Champagne on the terrace with appetisers that were out of this world. Service was impeccable with the Sommelier sharing his expertise with friendliness and tact. Every course was just incredibly well presented, delicious to taste; the detail and quality of food was exquisite. All who served us, were friendly and dedicated, it seems everyone was happy to be a part of the restaurant team. I could not pick one particular course that was better than another, but the marmite butter and bread - I could have made a meal out of this combination but had to restrain myself for the several courses to follow. I even received a birthday card made with the restaurant's inhouse photographer. A special celebration was had, and in a very special place. Could not recommend it highly enough. Thank you to all involved.

    Pulling up to the main gates and seeing all the deer run about was absolutely fantastic. When we got inside we was greeted well and shown to our table, the waiter and waitresses did a fantastic job very polite and helpful they brought out the food to the table and explained what ingredients were used etc. All the food was delicious and I can’t choose a course which was my favourite as they was all my favourite. I will definitely be going again because I had a fantastic evening.

    A really enjoyable lunchtime. We haven’t been to Paris House since before lockdown (although had the ‘At Home’ experience) and we were very impressed with everything from the service to the food and the overall atmosphere; although nothing noticeable had changed it just felt better than before, and that was always exceptional.

    The Paris House is a marvel, a jewel, an oasis in a desert of mediocrity. It’s hands down Beds & Bucks best restaurant. Chef Phil’s playful menu, Thomas & his team’s exquisite service, Howie’s encyclopaedic knowledge of not only wine, but the men and women who make it, combine to deliver an experience few places can deliver. It’s on point from the second you arrive but with not the slightest hint of stuffiness - just like returning to see old friends who are pleased to see you and happy you came to visit.

    Warm welcome. Restaurant with views over deer park. Happy to serve drinks on terrace with menu and hand made nibbles before we went to our table. A birthday card was a very nice surprise. We had the taster menu. Well thought out- wonderful flavours and all unhurried . We had the wine pairing which made an amazing evening even more special with the Sommelier explaining a little of the history of the vineyards and the reason for that choice of wine. It felt like each member of staff was delighting in our enjoyment of every element of the event. Highly recommend for a special celebration.

    Having visited Paris House before, our expectations were high. We were not disappointed. The service was excellent, the food exceptional and attention to detail immaculate. The only down side was a change in 'pudding' to a sour cherry mouse which both my daughter and I found too sour...having said that both the gentlemen managed to enjoy theirs AND ours! A delightful lunch, we will be back.
