Featured Lavenham Restaurants
1. The Great House Hotel & Restaurant, Lavenham French restaurant in Lavenham Market Pl - CO10
After 32 years the Crêpy family were a tough act to follow at this “lovely” old (in parts 14th century) inn, on the square of a picturesque town: “a unique, quintessentially English building, whose other defining features are essentially French: this includes the staff, food, wine and especially the cheeseboard!”. “There’s very little to fault in its classic French cuisine”, and although the ratings awarded by its huge and dedicated fan club have slipped a fraction in the transition period, most reporters are optimistic: “since the Crêpys have retired the new owners have tried to keep the Great House just the same, and although it’s not 100% as good it’s getting there” is a sensible middle view. However you cut it, it’s “certainly one of the best East Anglian restaurants”.
2. Number Ten British, Modern restaurant in Lavenham 10 Lady St - CO10
A “great place to eat in Lavenham”, this wine bar and restaurant-with-rooms in a beautifully converted fifteenth-century brick-and-timber house rates strongly across the board. Hosts Jo Knight and Rod Benson are locals.
3. Swan Hotel British, Modern restaurant in Lavenham High St - CO10
“The most beautiful old Tudor building” in the stage-set town of Lavenham is “just the place for a special-occasion meal” – whether “an indulgent tea served on old-fashioned trays” or “a sumptuous dinner in the elegant Gallery restaurant”.
4. Lavenham Greyhound restaurant in Lavenham 97 High Street - CO10
With the collapse of former owners, Stuart Inns, this well-known pub in a charming village changed hands in Spring 2019 and now follows a new formula based around Spanish tapas. Not all former fans are delighted by this turn of events, so we’ve left a rating till the next Diners Poll when the dust has settled.
