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.

    It was our first visit to Paris House in quite a few years, and the whole experience was nothing short of First Class! The staff were friendly and welcoming, and service throughout was excellent. Every course was exquisite and the wine flight matched the food perfectly. We also has the cheese course and matched it with the Vintage Ports, and wow, I would thoroughly recommended having it! The Sommelier took the time to tell us about each wine pairing, he was very knowledgeable and it really added to the whole experience. Could not recommend Paris House highly enough and cant wait to go back, sooner rather than later hopefully.

    The Paris House is one of our favourite restaurants in the UK. Food and service is always superb at a reasonable price. The six course taster menu with wine is absolutely delicious and not too heavy so you feel satisfied but comfortable after the meal.

    We have been going to Paris House in Woburn for many years. This season's winter/Christmas menu is a real treat from Phil Fanning, Dan Treadwell and the chef team. From the delicious canapes (cheese puffs are a real treat) to the journey through the menu to the show stopping Christmas bauble, the menu delights and wows the diner. The wine pairing is a must. However, a couple of dishes were so good we "forgot" to sample the wine accompanying it. The front of house team with Thomas, Amy, Jeremy and Howie (Sommelier genius) are amazing with just the right touch of personable service. The setting is stunning and it changes with the seasons. Treat yourself.

    Great taster menu which we had with wines. We took the cheese option too with vintage port flight. Two of those were really lovely. All round an expensive but lovely evening. We would recommend you to go at least once. The sommelier shows great knowledge and despite having to repeat his chat about the wine to each table so numerous times he remains interested.

    The whole experience was first class. Booking was easy, two days before arrival Jo phoned to check on any dietary requirements. We made two changes to the menu one in advance and the second on the day. Everything was perfect. The staff are amazing always there when needed and yet able to melt into the background when not. Their knowledge of food and wine was exceptional, informative without pressure. The food was superb. The skill with which the flavours were blended to bring out the best of the ingredients was masterful and beautifully presented. In all it was the most wonderful lunch without time pressure, the stuff that memories are made of. Thank you, we will return.

    The House is in a very beautiful setting in a tree lined deer park. At lunchtime, when we visited, the sun was shining through the clouds and gave a dappled effect. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. The tasting menu was wonderful to look at and tasted as good as it looked. My wife remarked on how interesting the wines were. The sommelier recommended two wines from the ‘flight’ that perfectly matched the courses. The ‘petite fours’ served with our espresso coffee were a delight.

    Continuing our unbroken run of truly excellent meals. Nothing is too much trouble and the food continues to delight with texture and flavour combinations. Consistently the best restaurant we go to and far superior to a number of alternatives listed in a certain guide.

    In one word - Amazing. My wife had the Vegan tasting menu while I had the regular tasting menu, the attention to detail, texture and wine pairing of the Vegan menu mirrored the regular menu and was an absolute triumph! Easily the best Vegan tasting menu she has ever experienced, will certainly be heading back.

    The best food experience we have ever had; the addition of the wine pairings made for a truly special treat. The staff are all polite, knowledgeable, down to earth and humorous. The food presentation, textures and flavours were exquisite. We opted for lunchtime rather than evening and the sunny views out to the parkland with the deer enhanced the whole thing. Magical!

    21 October 2023 21:06 A memorable evening with Phill and his team. Sitting at the chef's table and watching the creation of order over the bustling evening's demands was more than educational and fascinating. We loved every single minute of our time there. As we went on, each delicious course was eagerly anticipated by us with increasing expectation, culminating in the triumphant main lamb dish. They really can design , imagine and cook. Phill was a great host who was happy to discuss anything from the economics of running a restaurants today to the biochemical synergism, origins and effectiveness of umami, with gastro-plebs like us. tiny gripe: don't penny pinch by charging extra for Port on top of the "all in". Just add it to the package - no one would notice. Needless to say , we thoroughly recommend Paris House and Phill.

    Wonderful, inventive menu. We have eaten here numerous times and never had the same dish twice. Service is excellent, courses are fully explained and every dish is a delight. The approach through the deer park sets the scene perfectly for a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. Our one negative on this occasion only, was that there must have been a problem with the heating system as it was a bit too cold to be comfortable. Nevertheless we are looking forward to our next visit and have already made a reservation.

    Went to the Paris House in Woburn to celebrate our wedding anniversary. With the restaurant sitting in the grounds of Woburn park and the deer roaming through the grounds I don’t think you could better the location. When we arrived we were welcomed by the front of house and shown to our sets. The restaurant has a nice light and airy feel with seating well spaced out giving you your own personal space. The set lunch menu was superb with the flavours well balanced with each dish. The wine pairing with each dish worked well with and complimented the food nicely. The waiting staff were very polite and attentive and explained each dish very well, as did the sommelier with the wine. It’s nice to see a Phil and his team creating such interesting dishes at the Paris House in Bedfordshire. We will definitely be going back for lunch again sometime.

    Our first experience here after many years of saying ‘we need to visit’ Warm welcome on arrival. The Taster Menu was delicious and beautifully presented. We left with full tummies which is always a good thing when you dine out. Certainly won’t be our last visit … next time with friends! Thank you to the team at Paris House who go that extra to deliver a fabulous memorable experience.
