Submit Review
The Great House Restaurant and Hotel in Lavenham, Sudbury, Suffolk, has been placed in Britain's Top 100 Restaurants by the Sunday Times and Harden's Guide and UK' Top 30 French Restaurants in 2016'. Expect modern French cooking displays with fresh twists and clear flavours. There's daily changing menus featuring best Suffolk and East Anglia produce as well as a superbly appointed French and local cheese board. Service from the team at The Great House is all about being knowledgeable, personable and friendly but unobtrusive. The mood is pleasantly casual though the cooking is perfectly serious, earthy and imaginative. This is high end cuisine done with style and adventure. 3 AA rosettes and 2017 AA Gold award. Despite the very high quality here, the restaurant is still unpretentious and with lunch time menus at £19.95 for two courses (£25 - three courses) and three course dinner and Sunday lunch from £36.50 it is extremely popular with locals as well as those staying at the hotel and enjoying a weekend or mid-week break. In good weather, the discreet courtyard is the place to be.

I cannot think of another hotel where everything is perfect, from the reception to the most confortable and well decorated room, to the fabulous food and the kindness of hosts and staff.

We have eaten here several times at, in our opinion, the best restaurant in Suffolk - a sentiment shared by many friends. So many pleasant surprised such as the nice touch of complimentary sherry – nice sherry as well. Thank you for a lovely stay. A really enjoyable way of celebrating our 50 years of married life.

Accommodation is spacious, clean and smartly furnished (olde world). Some rooms contain separate lounge area with TV. There is free Wi-Fi and free parking in the village square, which the hotel overlooks. Restaurant is smartly furnished, service is good with a variety of cuisine (French mainly) to an excellent standard. Staff are very friendly and helpful without being over-attentive.

We have been coming here since Regis and Martine took over the Great House 29 years ago. They consistently provide imaginative cooking of the highest quality I expect and friendly service in a lovely setting.
