Our Story

Amélie was a dream many years ago between father and son duo – Regis & Alex.

They started working on combining a classic dish served throughout the east of France, along with fresh, local and high quality ingredients creating a brand new concept perfect for todays’ lifestyle!

Regis worked in Michelin restaurants in France and Switzerland before coming to the UK with his wife to learn English. They loved East Anglia and bought The Great House in Lavenham, a charming 14th century building. They created an exceptional restaurant with rooms that became a renowned destination for its superb cuisine. Over 32 years it received numerous prestigious awards and accolades – 3 Michelin red forks and 3 AA Rosettes, being in the top 50 longest lasting establishments in the Good Food Guide – to name a few, all testament to their passion and dedication.

Alex followed in his father’s footsteps graduating in hospitality management from Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne.  He spent three years working with Gaucho Restaurants in London managing several establishments becoming one of its youngest managing partners.

After many months of their own testing, burning and tasting, Flammekueche is now firmly arriving at the Grafton Centre just opposite the VUE cinema in Cambridge with a range of modern, fresh toppings that reveal the Crepy’s expertise and understanding of high quality simple food and wonderful flavour combinations.

To complete the family venture, Amélie is named after Regis’ daughter – Alex’s sister.
