The Great House in Lavenham has been named the 26th best restaurant in the UK outside London by Square Meal, an online and magazine restaurant guide.
Each year Square Meal compiles its list based on votes from an annual survey.
Thousands of readers and bloggers took part in the search for the best restaurant moderated by Square Meal’s editor and its nationwide team of professional reviewers.
Owner of the restaurant and hotel Regis Crepy, said: “It is fantastic news to be included in this impressive list of renowned restaurants across the UK.
“This recognition means a great deal to me. Not only is it testament to my team’s hard work and dedication but it is the reflection of our customers’ satisfaction and we thank them for their loyalty and support.”
A spokesman for the company said: “A position anywhere on our list of the best restaurants in the UK is a great achievement.
“Whether at a white-table clothed bastion of formal fine dining, a gastro-pub serving some of the tastiest food in the county, or a casual, city-centre Asian café, a meal in any of these restaurants will be among the very best eating experiences you will find in the UK today.”
