Really spoilt for choice in Lavenham with The Swan and The Angel and The Great House. The Great House is the more formal of the three but definitely a great venue for a nice Dinner

We went in, not prebooked, on a day trip to Lavenham. Could not fault the food or the service, we had a really lovely lunch and felt it was good value for such a good quality meal. We would not hesitate to recommend the Great House to others, and hope to return ourselves. Thankyou!

Excellent service, delicious food. Highly recommend. Birthday lunch for our son - the waiter sweetly and unexpectedly put a candle in his pudding.

We came for a Sunday lunch with friends and we had a lovely experience. My husband and I are vegetarian and I must say that the special menu we were offered ( did mentioned vegetarian option during reservation) was the best we had for a long time with a very good value for money. The staff was professional and very... More

We enjoyed a meal with friends for two birthdays, lovely restaurant overlooking town square. Excellent food, we seem to have made similar menu choices, soup and lamb. I had fish which was lovely and light although a little cold in temperature. Great and friendly service, almost perfect!

Second visit. Phoned twice to confirm one guest was a vegetarian and was told they could provide vegetarian options. When we arrived one waiter just said they had a vegetarian menu but there was no main meal. He didn't say what it was. The head waiter then said they "can't cater for individuals" and couldn't adapt any of the meals... More

This wonderful French owned restaurant is quietly competent in every way. There are maybe 40 covers, so not too big. The decor is modern, and the service efficient but discrete. The food is beautifully cooked and presented. The wine list has a lot of half bottles which is great if one of you has fish, and the other venison. The... More
