Last week we stayed at The Great House, I Lavenham, Sufolk. Beautiful room , the welcome service & food was exceptional. Last stayed here twenty years ago hope we will be back a lot quicker this time. Parking in square in front of Grat House was free and it is adjacent to the National Trust Property The Guidhall. Delightful tea... More

We have visited this restuarant several times driving from Canterbury to Lavenham just to have a meal. I am limited to what I can eat and they always try to oblige or make suggestions. On one occasion they made two dishes especially for me. The atmosphere is just as you would wish and the service is discreet but attentive.

Our first stay in this beautiful place, which came with excellent recommendations from friends. This was a wedding anniversary treat so expectations were high. What can I say? A lovely hotel in an amazing, historic village. Our room was finished immaculately: loved the sherry. Lots of nice touches. Staff couldn't have been more professional and helpful. Our evening meal in... More

My wife and I have been eating regularly at the Great House for around 10 years and in all that time we have never had anything other than a completely fabulous meal. If you read the other reviews you will see that the vast majority agree with this view. If you enjoy fine French cooking made with great local English... More

We stayed for two nights at this Hotel which, at first sight looked cozy and quaint. Indeed the room was comfortable and spacious with all facilities present. We asked about nearby restaurants if only because we'd had a long journey and could do with going out for a bite. The staff strongly recommended the restaurant within the hotel itself and... More

This is in my opinion the best place to eat in Suffolk. We stayed afterwards as well this time. Can thoroughly recommend bedroom 1 for its ambience, four poster bed and the view. Excellent and attentive service that is not over the top.

We had a wonderful stay for two nights at The Great House. The staff (all French) could not have been more helpful, and we were absolutely thrilled and delighted to find that on our first evening they had prepared our favourite belly pork dish for us, even though this was not on the menu (we had had this on a...

It was absolutely wonderful. The food and service were gorgeous.We have stayed many times and have always been delighted with both food service and welcome. There was no rush even though the restaurant is usually full and lots of waiters and waitresses. The cheeses are delicious!

We stayed for four nights this time and the stay was as wonderful as the previous two. The room was immaculate with two double beds - large, comfortable and beautiful - really special with the Tudor details. The food is amazing, both in terms of freshness and originality, and served beautifully and delicately. The Great House and Lavenham are a... More
