The Great House is an atmospheric and softly beautiful old house in the pretty village of Lavenham. Built in the 14th century, the lovely Georgian façade was added in the 18th. It has been home to famous collectors, artists and writers and has been a shining light in the world of cuisine since 1985. Enter through a heavy, latched door into the atmospheric restaurant and bar where features include exposed beams and red bricks, plus a huge fireplace. Furnishing is contemporary and smart and the menu is uncompromisingly French and superb.
