The Great House welcomes you back.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen you and been able to welcome you through our door but we’re delighted to now be taking bookings for both our restaurant and bedrooms!

Bookings are available from lunchtime on Thursday 9th July.

To make a booking, whether it be to dine in our restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or to stay overnight in one of our beautiful bedrooms, please contact us with the following details;

Name / Date of Reservation / Preferred Time / Email Address / Daytime & Evening Contact Number /Any special dietary requirements

You can either contact us via email at or telephone on 01787 247431 & leave a message.

Please note, although we are now taking bookings, our reception is not currently manned Monday – Friday therefore we will respond to emails and return phone messages as soon as possible to confirm your bookings.

To avoid groups within the entrance and exit of The Great House, our reservations will be made in allocated time slots. Please be reassured we will do our best to ensure your time slot is as close to your preferred reservation time as possible.

Due to social distancing measures within the restaurant we have a limited capacity per seating so please do book your reservation as far in advance as possible to avoid disappointment.

Swann and his team of chefs have put together some tantalising new menus to welcome you back with, you can view our new sample menus on our here. Upon confirmation of your booking we will happily explain all of our new menu choices to you.

If you are making a reservation to stay within one of our bedrooms please be aware of our new check-in time of 4.00pm and check-out of 10.00am. This is to allow us time to thoroughly deep clean the bedrooms before your arrival and after your departure.

If you are staying with us overnight and would prefer to dine in your room we have introduced a Room Service Menu for you. So if breakfast in bed is something you enjoy or would like to have enjoy dinner in your room rather than in our restaurant we are pleased to be able to offer this service to you.

Your safety is paramount to us so you can rest assured that we have been working hard to ensure we have in place all the care and safety measures you need to ensure you can enjoy a relaxing and enjoyable experience with us at The Great House.

We can’t wait to welcome you back to The Great House in Lovely Lavenham – it’s been too long since we’ve seen you!

Check back soon for more details on our NEW and exciting adventure of top class Dine-In menus for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Our award-winning Pattisier, Mathieu, is also finalising the menu for our French Patisserie for you to purchase and take home for a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or even a wedding.
