“A unique experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

It was wonderful to experience again the gastronomic delights of The Great House - a very special place to savour the best of French food. My husband and I had two dinners here last week while staying in Lavenham and once again found our taste buds and vision excited by splendid food lovingly presented by attentive staff who really care about their guests. Thierry is a delight - discrete but fun! Thankyou and we'll see you all again. (I hope Martine and Regis enjoyed the video!)

A restaurant with rooms in the centre of Lavenham, one of the prettiest villages in suffolk and some of the best food in this country. An exquisite dinner, and a lovely bedroom too. All thoughtfully prepared with a guest,s comfort in mind. We coudn't fault it. Can't wait to stay again.

Room Tip: They are all good.

We spent two nights here in late February and would thoroughly recommend it. It's a restaurant with rooms as opposed to a hotel but it's standards are as high as most 5 star hotels and it's won loads of awards. Our room was no 3 (of 5) which is bigger than the others we think. Decor is designer style mixed with medieval beams and a fantastic old oak bed. Bathroom is small but well equipped. The restaurant was first class french food with a good atmosphere - decorated in pastel grey with grey leather chairs and smart white linen tablecloths. Breakfasts simple with best croissants outside France! All in all makes for a perfect weekend break. We spent morning on Saturday at Lavenham Falconary for a birds of prey experience which we can recommend. Lavenham is a fascinating medieval town with some great buildings and quite a few antique shops.

Room Tip: Room 3 is a suite with separate lounge

We have celebrated many birthdays, anniversaries and Christmases at The Great House over a number of years and we have never been disappointed.

The menus are interesting and varied and the food is beautifully cooked and presented. The staff are attentive but discreet.The atmosphere in the dining room is relaxed and pleasant.

For us, dining at the Great house is always special.

This fantastic restaurant consistently offers food of an exceptional quality. The food and service is comparable to any of the other top restaurants we have eaten in throughout England. It is unfortunate that all too often now in England we have become accustomed to paying vastly inflated prices for what can only be described as average food (certainly in London); however The Great House always manages to offer good value for money with perfectly constructed dishes and a reasonably priced comprehensive wine list. In addition to the superb food and wine this restaurant similarly to continental Europe, has finely trained wait staff that are not simply students working for a bit of cash on the side. Whether locals from the surrounding area or visiting from afar this restaurant should not be missed and booking is highly recommended.
