The Great House is a sleek, chic gourmet ‘Restaurant with Rooms’ on the Market Place of Lavenham. The mood is pleasantly casual though the cooking is perfectly serious, earthy and imaginative. This is high end cuisine done with style and adventure.
Owned by Regis and Martine Crepy since 1985, The Great House is something truly special: a unique combination of Gallic charm, exquisite food, elegant decor and Suffolk heritage.
Menus change regularly with the seasons. Using the finest East Anglian produce, we create imaginative food inspired by our native France, food that has won us numerous accolades and awards.
Situated in the heart of Suffolk, The Great House Boutique Hotel is the perfect location to explore the area or to enjoy the 340 ‘listed’ buildings of this historic village. Generous beds, en suite bathrooms and modern technology come as standard at The Great House. What makes its rooms truly great is their unique character, evoked through elegant and original design.
