Started with foie gras which was one of the best foie gras dishes I have ever had. Main course was pork which was beautifully presented and delicious. Had a wonderful chocolate dessert, pastry chef is...

We love this restaurant. It's the fourth time we have eaten here and it just gets better and better. We had the alcove table again, which we really like. Service as usual was perfect. Food is imaginative and very tasty and so well presented. The wine list is great and they will always offer advice if you are unsure which...

A lovely village, a so charming hotel and an incredible gastronomic experience for a very reasonable price...and the right service! Not to be missed: the venison tenderloin! It makes winter more enjoyable 🌟.

Its such a treat these days to visit a restaurant that doesn't skimp on style, service and quality. Agreed its not cheap but not everyone wants burgers , paper napkins and staff with their name printed on their shirt. This is my 3rd visit and there is no dip - consistently excellent - we will be back , again and...

Can't fault it, searched for a town of interest with good food and absolutely found it. The town sets the scene and the restaurant compliments it. Our room for the weekend above the restaurant was small but beautiful with lots of character. The food, where to start, I don't know what you need to do to get a Michelin star...

For years, the Great House has been providing the well-to-do of Suffolk with a fine dining experience. People keep coming back because the food and service are impeccable. This is as good as French cuisine gets outside France.

This was our second visit to the Great house, and it is the best restaurant in Lavenham, and perhaps in Suffolk. The 3 course lunch menu at £25 is really good value. Food and service is faultless, with an excellent wine list. I would Recommend you book a table to experience the wonderful food.

My overnight stay at the GREAT Great House Hotel was first class all round. Walking around Lavenham was a pleasure in itself, an enchanting step back in time visiting all Lavenham has to offer.

We needed a relaxing and stimulating break after a very busy few months, and took pot luck - we knew little about either the location or the hotel, but we couldn't have struck luckier. We were made to feel special from the moment we walked through the doors for Sunday lunch (a superb 2-hour experience) until we left after breakfast...
