This restaurant is a delight, with top class French cooking, an extensive wine list, efficient and unobtrusive service and, to cap it all, a gorgeous cheese trolley; high class and highly recommended.

We have been eating at the Great House for a quite a long time and the standard never drops. The menu choice is varied and the food is always beautifully cooked and presented. The staff are attentive but not "in your face." This is our favourite restaurant in this area and we hope to continue enjoying delicious meals here for... More

Our return to this excellent restaurant was long overdue. We were not disappointed. We had a first class lunch at The Great House on a Saturday - booking is essential, particularly at weekends. It was a special occasion - it is always a special occasion when we visit this wonderful establishment - you don't need to wait to celebrate birthdays... More

Lovely room and absolutely fantastic cooking - may seem expensive for where it is, but actually great value considering the quality. Only criticism is that one of the waiting staff seemed not to speak much English and had to check everything with a colleague. Service was however effective and friendly. Enjoyed this meal more than one the following week at... More

Had a superb lunch served by friendly professional staff. Why this is not a Michelin starred restaurant is amazing. The good thing is I did not have to book. My partner and I dined here many years ago and the service and quality of food is as fantastic as ever. The Queen scallops were divine and the succulent cod wonderful.... More
