Featured Lavenham Restaurants
1. The Great House Hotel & Restaurant, Lavenham French restaurant in Lavenham Market Pl - CO10
“An old time favourite that’s recently changed hands with no obvious downside”: this “very special” landmark – “magically situated” in an old inn dating from the 14th century on “a beautiful town square” – was sold by the Crépy family this year after their 32 years at the helm, but “the staff have all stayed on” and “everything has continued seamlessly”. It delivers an “outstanding all-round” and “very French” experience, with “excellent classical French cooking plus a wine list to match” and “special mention going to the sublime cheese (selected from a large trolley with a superb variety of options)”.
2. Number Ten British, Modern restaurant in Lavenham 10 Lady St - CO10
A “great relaxing wine bar/restaurant” in a rustic-chic 15th century house; the pizza (“served on Sundays only”) really hits the mark, but the seasonal food is “wonderful” on any given day. If you want to indulge, just follow the hand-carved spiral staircase to the upstairs ‘Crown Post Suite’, complete with patio.
3. Swan Hotel British, Modern restaurant in Lavenham High St - CO10
“Romantic beams and log fires in a quirky building” provide a “fine, period setting” at this 15th-century hotel. A full meal in the restaurant gets second billing to the “fabulous afternoon tea”, which “includes a Gentlemen’s option for anyone not wanting a sweet meal”.
4. Lavenham Greyhound restaurant in Lavenham 97 High Street - CO10
“A very good addition to the Stuart Inns portfolio” that’s riding high after a “smart” 2017 expansion and refurb’. There’s definitely the odd gripe (the menu seems “all jumbled together” and prices high) but most praise the “very different” menu (“much better than just pub food”).
