wonderful meal, great setting, impeccable service.
But what was truly exceptional was the cheese trolley! If you have only space for two courses, make it the main and the cheese.
Wonderful! so much variety, so many interesting cheeses. The waiter was even so kind to write down the names of the two new ones we discovered and loved.
Shall return!

Loved everything about it. A cosy four poster bedroom and en suite with shower. Good 'smellies' and very comfortable. The only small need was a better light for reading by in the adjoining sitting room would have been helpful.

We are lucky enough to visit the Great House several times a year, usually for family celebrations. The service is friendly, charming, and professional, the atmosphere is relaxed. The food is always excellent with a varied and interesting menu and compares favourably to what you might expect from the best of London or Paris.

We recently stayed in Lavenham and the cottage owner recommended this restaurant for Sunday lunch as somewhere special and memorable. The food was absolutely amazing, a dining experience rather than a Sunday lunch. When we left we overhead some people discussing the price from the menu outside and saying it was expensive but this was not a Sunday lunch like any other, it was a fine dining experience but on a Sunday lunchtime!
Four of us dined and we each chose something different from the menu, all of the meals were delicious. The staff were friendly and helped put us at our ease as it was clear most of the diners were regulars and it would have been easy to feel a little overwhelmed.The wonderful setting with a snowy view over Lavenham market place just helped make this a truly lovely start to our stay.

My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant several times over the past twelve months and I have to say that it is one of our favourites. The food is superb and I consider it to be one of the best restaurants in Suffolk.
It has a peaceful atmosphere which is complimented by the excellence of the staff.
