We went to the Sutherland house last Saturday and had the most fantastic open steak sandwich. The service was excellent as was the host Andy, The Sutherland host is a must for anyone who enjoys good food.

Have been to Sutherland House a couple of times in last few years. The atmosphere is relaxed yet the staff are both polite and attentive. The building itself is full of character and provides a great setting for great food. We all had skate for the main course and the fish was cooked to perfection. Talking to the people on... More

First visit but definitely won't be the last. Excellent food in fantastic historical building but with relaxed informal feel and friendly service. Very fresh fish, well cooked in an unfussy way. Can also recommend the wonderful lemon posset.

We've visited Southwold for the last 5 years and dined at Sutherland House on each occasion. Wonderful food, well prepared and presented, excellent flavours, and good value. Very engaging and attentive staff. All in all a very good dining experience. Many thanks. Looking forward to next year.

Booked an evening meal at Sutherland house on a holiday to Southwold. We would describe the food as pretty food at a high price that did not warrant the award of any high stars. We had to wait far too long between courses. The soup when it came was not the one we had been told was on the menu.... More

The service jarred somewhat - over familiar - ok in many settings but not in a serious restaurant. My skate wing was lovely, but the steak dish my wife had was very unimaginative, and not as nice as I'd expect in a pub.

My husband and I made a last minute booking for dinner and I am so glad that we managed to get a table as it is a very popular restaurant. We had a starter and main each, mussels followed by sea bass and both were excellent. We shared a dessert as we were really full and that was also excellent.... More
