we chose sutherland house on easter sunday 2014 for dinner with four people and were not disappointed. After a warm welcome and a tasty amuse bouche we sampled the starters. It became obvious that the restaurant is already in the gourmet food area combining the traditional english cuisine with a creative modern touch. To combine scallops and black pudding seems... More

Although we live on the continent, we travel to suffolk at least twice a year. Eating at Sutherland House is always a highlight of our trip. Relaxed atmosphere. Very friendly and helpful staff make you feel immediately comfortable. The food is amazing : very fresh usually local ingredients. The fish is to die for.

We had dinner with our daughters and had a delicious meal. Our eldest has a nut allergy and was able to enjoy a lovely meal, she chose to have cheese but was unable to have the crackers due to nut traces, had Melba Toast specially cooked for her. The staff were lovely and we will definitely return.

Evening meal for family of five . We were made to feel very welcome in this independent restaurant. One of the few establishments (the only one I found) that is not obliged to serve Adman's beer. Adnam's is OK but very hard to find another choice in Southwold. On to the food. My daughter always orders steak these days and... More

Everything about this restaurant was superb. First class customer service and the food tasted Devine. We ate here 2 out of the 3 nights that we stayed in Southwold. Check it out and treat yourselves.

This was our first visit to Sutherland House and my wife and I enjoyed a fabulous lunch. I had the fillet steak which was cooked to perfection, and my wife had the smoked seafood platter. We both had puddings which were brilliant! Everything about the experience was great and it means we will definitely return again.

Had tried every other restaurant in Southwold and this was the last to try. To be honest I don't know why I even bothered anywhere else. Food was gorgeous, service impeccable and bill was reasonable given our extravagant appetite. Special thanks to our waiter for who nothing was too much trouble, even for our young adolescents who had their own... More

We decided to try this restaurant on the basis of its mention in the Good Food Guide, and reviews on Tripadvisor. It's in a good looking white building set back a little from the road with two dining areas each side of a solid fireplace. When we went, only the one room was in use but it is a very... More
