This is one of our local top restaurants and we eat here a few times a year, unfortunately, based one last evenings experience, it is resting on reputation. Our bill was nearly £150 including a fair tip for two people for two and one half courses and four glasses of wine. This would be at the top end of the... More

We had lunch at this restaurant with a well-travelled friend from Hong Kong. Not only we but she as well were impressed with the environment and ambience from the start. The menu included a wide variety and, despite the restaurant being full, the service throughout was exemplary. My duck was just one highlight. I thought the restaurant offered excellent value...

We had lunch at this restaurant on a recent trip to Suffolk. We took the set Sunday lunch menu and it was fantastic from start to finish - my husband said it was the best meal he has eaten! Cannot recommend highly enough. The set menu price of £33 was very reasonable for the service, presentation and quality of food... More

The dining experience is excellent, the food is very good and the staff are excellent and cannot do enough for you, there is a cosy atmospher to the restraunts which lends its sell to business meals or quiet meals for a couple, this may be seen as expensive but I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for...

Small and intimate setting in a brilliant location. The Great House is a touch of France. Everything is stylish yet understated. The service is top class. The menu and wine list both superior. The food - is exceptional without being pretentious. It does all come at a price, this is expensive, but well priced for what you get. Do your... More

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
