Have just come back from a perfect Easter weekend break staying at Lavenham Great House. We stayed in the tudor room suite which was very comfortable and had everything you'd expect from a 5* hotel. The meal we had on the Saturday evening was spectacular with the staff being very knowledgeable and attentative. The village of Lavenham itself and the... More

Excellent food in an outstanding restaurant. The rooms matched the quality of the location - expensive but worth the price. The village of Lavenham is quite extraordinary and is worth the visit, especially the church. To have such an outstanding place is the icing on the cake.

Visited on a Saturday evening as a treat for a friend's birthday. The dining room looks beautiful with starched white linen tablecloths and napkins and beautiful glasses. The first niggle became apparent very quickly when we realised we had a very wobbly table. There was what looked like a lump of blu tac stuffed under one of the legs but... More

We went for Saturday lunch with friends, and everything was lovely from start to finish! The menu was lovely, just the right amount of choices, the staff are very professional, and discreet, filling up glasses and clearing the table without being obtrusive! We enjoyed it so much that we're going again for my birthday at the end of the month!... More

Visited on a Saturday lunchtime. Restaurant was full, glad we pre booked as there was not an empty table in sight! The service was initially very good however our waiter forgot to bring over desert menus and after 15 minutes of waiting we had to ask. However this was my only criticism. The food was the best I have eaten... More

Stayed for a weekend in October 2013 and ate in the restaurant on the Friday night. The brief was romantic and luxurious for an anniversary weekend and it did not disappoint. The hotel is very traditional in style with a 15th/16th century interior and an 18th century facade but does not sacrifice modern conveniences. We stayed in the four poster... More

I have had the pleasure of eating at The Great House a couple of times and I have thoroughly enjoyed both occasions. The food is great, the wine superb and the service excellent. I have also stayed overnight and that was a pleasure too.

We visited the Great House on the Friday, 3 days after xmas and in summary our visit was sublime. Firstly unlike the Swan, the Great House is a restaurant with rooms, and clearly describes itself as that (The Swan is a rambling hotel with a small restaurant). But what a restaurant and what rooms. We stayed in the four poster... More

After the full sunshine on the trip up from South Essex to Lavenham to what was for us a new Restaurant the weather took a turn for the worst dark storm clouds and heavy rain. This did not take away from the charm and elegance of this old hotel. I started with Game Terrine, and both my wife and I... More
