Outstanding meal and fine service

On a trip to England, we were growing a bit weary of English cuisine and heard about this lovely restaurant. Many years ago we had a splendid meal at their sister restaurant, Great House, in Lavenham. Once again, the meal was delicious and the servers were helpful, efficient, and friendly.

We have visited Maison Bleue before and found it to be outstanding. Now and again we like a special treat and we were not disappointed.

We had a absolutely delightful evening at Maison Bleue. From the moment we arrived to our departure, there was complete attention to detail without service being fussy or overbearing. The menu was full of little delights and surprises and the food beautifully cooked and presented. Leave a little space if you can for the cheeseboard. Here the waitress gave excellent... More

A really enjoyable experience. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. Exceptionally good value lunch menu. What really stood out though was the impeccable service. Wouldn't hesitate to do the 70 mile round trip to visit again.

We love Maison Bleue! We have eaten here for lunch and dinner and the service remains impeccable, even on a busy Saturday evening. The food is amazing and we can recommend the Fruits de Mer and the amazing selection of cheese. Recently had lunch from the set menu and the portions were generous and the flavours amazing.

Spent a truly wonderful evening at Maison Bleu. Perfect in every regard. Beautiful setting. Impeccable service. Stunning menu and exceptional cooking. Every couse was a delight. The attention to flavour and detail in the composition of the dishes shone through. This was our first visit but we shall certainly return and strongly recommend

I took my Mum to Maison Bleue for an early mother's day treat. We've been before - it's always been excellent and this was no exception! We arrived really early for our reservation but this didn't bother the waiting staff at all that we could tell. We had the house cocktail which came with fresh basil leaves. It was delicious!...

We returned to Maison Bleue on Friday and wondered why we had not been for a while. It is quite definitely the best restaurant in East Anglia. Everything was just superb - such high quality.
