We are regulars at the Great House. It is a jewel of a restaurant. The venue was busy today; service a little slow (wine ordered at the start arrived only just in time for the starters, for example). The starters were scrumptious- Portuguese gazpacho, mussels....More

This is one of my favorites, stayed in Lavenham for two nights and were most fortunate to have found this gem. Suffice as to say we ate here on our second evening.

As always, this was a happy experience: delicious food, well presented; friendly and efficient service and, a pleasant ambience. Perhaps the strongest recommendation is that we feel that lunch here is worth a round trip of over 100 miles!

They have off road parking. But I can't vouch for how secure it is. I would not worry very much.
Is this restaurant good for vegetarians? If not, do you know anywhere local that is?
