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

We have visted a number of times and the experience gets better and better. The whole experience defies words, although sublime comes to mind. The sister restaurant Mariners is also "up there" with the Great House. We will be back!!!

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
