Just to let you know that we will be closed from Monday 24th January 2022 reopening at midday on Saturday 29th January 2022.  This will allow us to have a belated staff party and to carry out some decoration and maintenance works.

We will be raring to go again on the 29th January 2022, all bright eyed and bushy tailed!   We are so looking forward to seeing you all throughout the year and may we take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.  It really does mean the world.

Here’s to a happy and healthy year to everyone!

 Jo, Rod and Team Ten

A warm and friendly welcome is always guaranteed at Number Ten, a Wine Bar and Kitchen based in the heart of Lavenham. The concept behind Number Ten is to offer informal hospitality whatever your taste and budget in one of Lavenhams most historically significant buildings.

Number Ten is found in a beautiful 15th Century House at the corner of Water and Lady Street, whether you want a glass of wine and a cheese board in front of the fire in the bar, or a coffee and a peruse of the daily papers, or a three course meal for ten people, with our passion for food and service, we believe you will not be disappointed.

To book a table please call us on 01787 249438.



Your hosts at Number Ten are Joanna Knight and Rod Benson. We have the very basic aim of providing delicious home cooked food, serving excellent wine with a ready smile and can do attitude.

Both Rod and Jo are long term Lavenham residents having grown up in the village.

Rod is a very keen cook and works alongside our chefs, to ensure that the food produced from our small kitchen is tasty and affordable.

Jo is passionate about quality service and can mostly be found working in the bar and restaurant areas of Number Ten along with the enthusiastic front of house staff, affectionately known as “Team Ten”.
