What an amazing choice on a Sunday lunch menu! Normally a fan of traditional Sunday fare, there was not a Yorkshire pudding in site!! Yet we all found it difficult to choose from this super menu. Quintessentially French and nouvelle in style, the food was not only beautifully presented on black crockery, but delicious as well. The cheeseboard was superb... More

I can't put my hand on my heart and say that I've been to every restaurant in Suffolk, but I have yet to find anywhere nearly as good as the Great House, including its sister restaurants Maison Bleu and the Mariners. Consistently good over the last ten years or so that we have been going there, the menu changes regularly... More

Our second visit at The Great House was again very good. The food and the service are of very high quality and very good value for money. We can strongly recommend it and cannot wait to go back again!

This is a lovely place to go for a meal, no question. The atmoshpere and setting are good and the service attentive without being obtrusive. The food, with the exception of the cheese board, was good, though to be brutally honest, not exceptional compared with restaurants of similar price. The cheese board however deserves special mention as it is exceptional... More

We've been to the Maison Bleu in Bury St Edmunds, but as this was closed, we booked into the lovely town of Lavenham. The staff and environment were absolutely excellent, and the food was superb (pea soup, mackerel, salmon terrine; belly of pork, duck). The cheese board was particularly magnificent. The wine list was also very good, and we drank... More

As always the Great House delivered a very special lunch toady. The food was excellent, the surroundings stylish and atmospheric, and the service second to none. Considering the quality of the cooking we had excellent value for money. We have eaten here on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed, if you are going to Lavenham it is... More

A frtrench restaurant with a chef and staff who really know what they are doing, and their lunches served from Tuesday to Saturday are incredible value, but more importantly that that the food is of the highest order. I have eaten at starred Michelin restaurants in the UK, France, in fact through Europe and The Great House compares very favorably.... More

Booked for an evening meal with family friends..The menu was varied with several fish options which are always welcome. My steal tartar starter was wonderful with a perfectly judged egg yolk bringing the whole dish together and the coffee crème brulee was gorgeous. As mentioned in other reviews the cheese board was stunning although my friend would have liked more... More

Chose this restaurent over our hotel restaurent which was quite a brave choice. Very much a french restaurent. Starter choice was limited and one dimensional.I am normally a big fan of starters and was very disapointed. I wish i had skipped starters. Main course was VERY good in a fancy cheffy way. Desert was excellant and wifey says the best... More
