Experience award-winning French cuisine in an English country house at The Great House Restaurant – Lavenham
Please be aware that The Great House will be closed after Sunday lunch on the 8th September to 13th September where we will reopen for our normal Friday dinner service. Pre-booked rooms are not affected by this close.
One of the best restaurants in the East of England, The Great House offers an exquisite dining experience, deep in the atmospheric Suffolk countryside. Our Chef Patron, Guillaume Dericq will ensure that all guests fully enjoy their experience.
The Great House restaurant is open for lunch Wednesdays to Sundays from 12 noon til 2.30pm (last orders) and for dinner Tuesdays to Saturdays from 7pm till 9.30pm (last orders). As The Great House is closed for dinner on a Sunday evening as well as all day for dining on a Monday, our team are happy to recommend alternative places to dine for any guests staying at The Great House on these days.
Our philosophy about food: ‘Colour, balance and contrast. Honest flavours that truly express the ingredients. Simple, traditional cooking with a modern approach. Food does not need to be an expression of fashion but, rather, a tasteful and unpretentious expression of flavours, characterised by the availability of seasonal ingredients’.
Our environmental policy is to serve food of the highest quality that is fresh, in season and as local as possible. All our shellfish and fish are from sustainable provenance. Our menu changes every day according to deliveries.
Please do not hesitate to contact us about any dietary requirements and we would be happy to accommodate them wherever possible.
