Award-winning

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded not one, but three exclusive awards from the AA Hospitality Awards! After a tough start to the year and with the current challenges the industry is facing with recruitment, it is fantastic news that The Great House has been recognised for the high-quality service we continue to strive for.

We have always been proud to be able to offer our overnight guests a delicious, cooked breakfast, and are thrilled to once again receive the AA Award-winning Breakfast accolade. Our breakfast menu consists of a choice from either our Continental breakfast or cooked breakfast. Both menus also include a warm hot beverage, freshly-squeezed orange juice, baked croissant, and toast!

Health and hygiene are also at the forefront of all our services, and we are delighted to be continually recognised for our attention to detail and exceptional high standards, ensuring that our guests receive nothing less than perfection with every visit.

“It was a pleasure to return to The Great House for this pre-arranged day visit, the purpose of which was to assess all physical areas of the property and to view any changes since our last inspection that may have an impact on the quality of the scores. As a result, I can confirm the continuation of a Five Star classification for a Restaurant with Rooms designator within the Guest Accommodation Scheme”, says AA inspector.

Not only do we strive for perfection for those staying overnight, but our head chef, Swann, is constantly pushing for new culinary techniques, making dining at The Great House a gourmet experience. By sourcing fresh, local ingredients, including our seafood, which is purchased daily from the Suffolk Coast, and our meat from our near-by butchers, The Great House continues to support the local businesses and Lavenham community, giving guests a true taste of Suffolk.

We are proud to be an award-winning destination and we are always looking for areas in which to improve – from focusing on quality dishes with our three-course lunch set menu and five-course dinner experience and creating an exclusive beverage menu, with wines from various French regions, to the exquisite details that make our rooms so special. We can’t wait to welcome you through our doors.
