Details

Acclaimed and award-winning French restaurant with a handful of beautifully designed five-star bedrooms, situated on Lavenham historic Market Place, next to the National Trust Guildhall and Little Hall Museum.

Children welcomeSmoking not allowed

Situated in the historic Market Place of Lavenham, The Great House was built in the heyday of the wool trade but was extensively renovated in the 18th century and looks more Georgian than Tudor. It was a private house until Regis and Martine Crepy turned it into a ‘Boutique’ hotel with restaurant in 1985. The food (predominantly French) is the best for miles - 'stunningly good' enthuses one visitor (a fellow hotelier). The five bedrooms, each with its en-suite bathroom and four with seating or a separate lounge are light and elegant still retaining the wonderful charm of the house. In summer French doors open onto a pretty stone-paved courtyard for drinks, lunch or dinner. The old timber-framed houses, the fine Perpendicular 'Wool Church' and the high street full of antiques and galleries make Lavenham a high point of any visitor's itinerary of the pretty villages of East Anglia.

Opening details

Accommodations are open 7 days a week - The restaurant is closed on Sunday night, Monday all day and Tuesday lunch.
