Contemporary British
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.

    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.

    Overall we enjoyed our visit and had the 6 course menu. The timing of the service for each course was erratic with the 2 sweet courses being served very quickly and little time between each. I also question why they need two sweets o the menu! The appetisers where a little clumsy in their execution and more resembled slices of sausage rolls. Overall could have done better and had better in the past.

    The food was lovely and the atmosphere was great. Definitely go again but I did struggle with the size of the tasting menu. 6 courses so I felt stuffed and uncomfortable. Would be nice to be able to have a smaller menu. Amazing quality food and loved the pairing wines as well!

    Went to Paris House last night with my wife, I had the regular tasting menu and my wife had the pescatarian. It was a lovely summer evening which made the drive through the grounds past all the deer amazing. The building is beautiful and the hosts/service was attentive but not pretentious. The food was amazing, flavours and quality out of this world and each course was a work of art! We didn't have the wine flight as I was driving and my wife doesnt drink very often but other diners seemed to be really enjoying it and the sommelier had a very amiable manner. The ambience was very relaxed and the evening was wonderful. Would definitely go back for a special occasion and get a taxi next time.

    My wife and I had a wonderful time celebrating our wedding anniversary. The food was superb and the service and the attention to detail was fantastic. My wife is vegetarian and she enjoyed every course of the tasting menu . The sommelier was very good and we enjoyed the wine chosen for each course . Thank you so much, we will definitely be returning.

    First of all, the short drive across the estate to reach Paris House, surrounded with wild deers, is impressive. On a warm summer evening, an outside drink facing the park was a perfect start for our tasting menu. Every dish that follow was incredible tasty and creative...with the seabass dish being our personal favourite. Dinner ended with an outdoor coffee after sunset facing the park one last time before heading back home. A great overall experience. Highly recommended!!

    6 courses, frankly not to my taste. We dine regularly in restaurants in London. Really wanted to enjoy a local restaurant but flavours ‘jarred’ with little balance. Did appreciate good quality and clever cooking. Appreciate food enjoyment can be personal so perhaps it was my table and my taste doesn’t match cooking (2 others struggled with courses), Previously met the chef and a good guy but unlikely to return. Sorry guys, feel bad about the review but at these prices the experience doesn’t work for me.

    Service was excellent , staff very friendly , polite and knowledgeable. Food presentation excellent, good quality , very enjoyable experience. Only negative, I think offering chocolates to buy at the end of the meal was rather much think they should have been included as nice gesture . Especially after buying cheese board

    The food and wine here is absolutely astounding, with the service attentive, knowledgeable but not in your face. Constant invention, and very well fed afterwards - after lunch we didn't need to eat again for the rest of the day! It's well worth the price in a lovely location - i'd recommend set dishes but the menu changes monthly! However the charred asparagus course we did have is especially worthy of praise. The only slight shame came at the time of the bill. On trying to pay with American Express, simply told 'we don't take Amex' (which at the level of expense here is absurd). On querying this given there is no mention of this anywhere on the website or at time of booking, they claimed there was (i checked after, there wasn't) and one of the staff immediately shot back before I had the chance to get a second card out, one of the other staff just said 'you can do the washing up'. There really wasn't any need for that at all and this general attitude to trying to pay a bill let the side down badly after a brilliant meal and great service throughout losing the half star that otherwise would have been five! Well worth booking!
