My wife and I have just had a superb Sunday lunch at the Great House Restaurant. From the moment we arrived until we had to depart, this was a fantastic dining experience. Quality of food, absolutely amazing, and the staff were all highly professional, but also very friendly. All in all a magnificent occasion.

The service from the moment you open the door is superb. You are immediately shown to your table and within minutes you have, in our case , a glass of Kir Royale in hand, Water on the table and some bread to nibble whilst we order. The choice of menu on their summer Table d'hôte Lunch is excellent and we... More

We ate here, once, some three years ago and it was undeniably the very best dining I'd ever enjoyed in some forty five years of restaurants. Would it be the same? Could the Great House achieve similar heights? Was I simply deluding myself? No, it was as I'd remembered! Whoever put the 'Great' in the Great House, certainly knew what... More

We visited last Saturday with friends - it is their favourite restaurant, but our first time. Superb from start to finish, with first class service and attention to detail. Expect to pay around £50 per head for 3 courses - I chose the scallops which were absolute perfection, the lamb which was beautifully tender and followed with the selection of... More

I've eaten here five times over the last few years, supper and lunch. Last week, lunch. You know how easy it to say with many restaurants....'OK but.....'. Not so here, there are no 'buts'. Here is what other restaurants strive for. Over and above their culinary skills, staff at Lavenham Great House, I guess are chosen, trained and all blessed... More

Stayed here a few nights ago. My first trip to Lavenham which is such a lovely place. The Great House was simply amazing. Lovely room, modern and quirky all in one, but oh so comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant was just one of the best ever..and I eat out a lot. The food was inovative and beautifuuly prepared and needless... More
