Lavenham Great House 'Restaurant with Rooms'

Market Place, LAVENHAM, CO10 9QZ

2 rosettes

Opposite the 16th-century timber-framed Guildhall, owned by the National Trust, The Great House is itself pretty ancient behind its Georgian fašade, though its dining room has been given a thoroughly modern look. It's a calm and soothing room, done out in soft tones, with a darkwood floor and comfortable upholstered chairs at white-clothed tables set with flowers and sparkling glasses. The cooking has its roots in the great French repertoire, so a pressing of pork belly and duck foie gras with marinated grapes, port jelly and balsamic reduction may be followed by confit lamb shoulder, cooked for 36 hours and partnered with aubergine caviar roulade and olive, cognac and basil jus. That's not to say there aren't some more global influences at play though: wasabi and mustard sauce adds an oriental twist to roasted fillet of Suffolk pork with celeriac, while yellow fin tuna is grilled and accompanied by steamed pak choi, tomato and vanilla chutney. Finish off with beetroot and basil pannacotta with apple jelly and beetroot caramelised with honey.
