The dining room is elegant. The service is first class. The food is beautifully presented and delicious. As good as a Michelin starred restaurant and without any unnecessary foams, liquid nitrogen, etc.

One of the best restaurant meals I've had in recent memory. The food was delicious and well presented, the setting and ambience very pleasant. Service was quick and attentive at first and although it did become a little less so as the restaurant filled up, this is a very minor gripe. Compared to a couple of our recent meals out,... More

This has been my favourite place to eat in East Anglia for a long time. They have upped their game recently and it is even better. Delicious set lunch is amazing value. As good as plenty of places with much higher ratings in the GFG and Michelin. Go even if you have to make journey.

Six of us had dinner here recently and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food is first class of a modern european style. We opted for the set menu at £33 and cannot complain. The cheese board presentation by the owner is pure theatre I would certainly recommend if ever you're in the Suffolk region

The great house was amazing from start to finish. My wife and I visited this for our wedding anniversary and we're not disappointed. The setting in Lavenham market square is perfect for this restaurant. Very classy and impressive looking building. Upon entrance we were greeted and shown to our tables and offered some aperitif's which we accepted. Whilst enjoying them... More

Just had dinner at this excellent restaurant. Food is very good, service very attentive, setting and atmosphere very good. Only minor tweaks such as more suffolk cheeses on the menu, more attention on the vegetables sides would make this a truly remarkable establishment. Also please try and sort out wobbly table and open a windows or two as a bit... More

We went with a party of 5 to lunch here and were not disappointed. The food was excellent, so was the drink. As with their sister restaurant in Bury St Edmunds, the staff are very attentive and good at their job (although one young French? lady didn't quite have a full command of English). There was plenty of choice on... More

This is a really good place to eat if you want to splash out for a special occasion. The ambience is great, the staff friendly and helpful and the food of a very good standard, with plenty of choice. The scallops, as a starter, were excellent, as was the pork main. The sea bass and the cod were pretty good... More

Yet again The Great House delivers simply excellent cuisine, superbly served. This really is our favourite restaurant locally and we go 2-3 times a year as a genuine treat. The highlight as ever is the cheese, but the Chicken Raviole was served in the most fantastic consommé. I don't usually drink Merlot but the house one here is sensibly priced... More

Went here for a family lunch to celebrate 3 birthdays. The meal was excellently presented and of a very high standard. The options all sounded amazing which therefore made it hard to select. If your looking for large portions then this isn't for you but if you want excellent, top quality ingredients well cooked and taste amazing then this is... More
