A great restaurant! Lovely garden and attentive staff. Informal dining mixed with beautifully served food. Thanks for attending to the needs of our baby too - crisis most definitely averted.

I visited Sunderland House for the first time based on T/a reviews. We both had cod & chips @11.95 per head, the fish was fresh with a nice light batter however the chips were frozen - not what one would expect from a highly rated restaurant! The bill came to more than I expected and it was due to the... More

First of all I was pleased to see you enjoyed your battered fish, I am sorry you felt the drinks were expensive, I just thought I would point out you did order the most expensive cider, a Suffolk premier cru at 7% VOL, should you ever decide to visit us again you may wish to choose one of the other...

We are regulars here and love it but this time brought friends who hadn't been before. They declared it the best meal they'd had for a long time. The fish is wonderfully fresh and imaginatively cooked and the pork was very tasty (food miles:4!). We had room just to share a delicious sticky toffee pudding. Service as always friendly and...

Visited this restaurant when staying in Southwold, having remembered to pre book a table for Saturday night! Food and atmosphere was very good and the service excellent. Not obtrusive but very efficient. Yet again, strongly recommend.
