We visited the Lavenham Great House on Saturday 22nd November to celebrate my wife's 70th Birthday. The Great House had agreed that they would provide a special birthday cake with a personal birthday message on. There were 4 adults and our granddaughter in the party. On opening the door we went into the dining room which was full of light,... More

We recently spent the weekend at The Great House. Regis, Martine and the whole team made us feel very welcome. The menu was equal to some of the best dishes served at the finest London restaurants and the service even more attentive. I don't know how they do it.........I can't wait to return.

Our favourite restaurant in Suffolk. Such good value for money, especially for a lunch date and the food is always excellent. The service is very good and the staff are friendly. The atmosphere makes us feel that we could be in France.

The restaurant is one of three run by Regis Crepy, who sets a very high standard. The other two are the Maison Bleue at Bury St Edmunds and Mariners... More

We visited The Great House for a special anniversary and it did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly and super efficient and the surroundings were comfortable,if a little squashed, tables could have been a little further apart for more conversational privacy. Food was exceptional, which is what we would expect for the price. The dessert was the best I... More
