We had a lovely meal last night. I had a fantastic steak and my girlfriend loved the sole and lobster ravioli but the best bit was the desserts - best brownie I have ever eaten! Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

We wanted a special meal while we stayed Southwold and we were not let down. The overall standard of service and attention to detail was very good. Not the cheapest, but well worth it for a very special meal. Overall, one of the best dining experiences we've had!

My husband and I had a meal as guests of another couple at Sutherland House on Saturday night. The food was wonderful, especially our cod loin. My only regret was that I didnt have the rhubarb crumble. My cheese and crackers were very nice but when I sampled my husband's crumble, I was suddenly very jealous! The atmosphere and the... More

I booked this for my wife birthday surprise while we stayed in Southwold for a few days, read a few reviews on TA and decided this is the place to eat and drink and not be let down. This was so true, for the moment we walked in the door, my wife was excited, the decor, the beams, the layout,... More

I do not know about anyone else but I hate paying top prices for mediocre food. Well Sutherland House was not too expensive but the service and the food were great. we had a 3 course meal with a bottle of wine and coffee, this came to £55 per head. we only live a few miles away but have never...

Came here upon TripAdvisor's recommendation and we were not disappointed. Quite a small restaurant but cosy and relaxed. No pressure service and generally relaxed pace were appreciated. Cod and Sea bass for mains were exceptional. Puddings slightly overpriced in my opinion although it was difficult to fault them for flavour. I would recommend for a nice evening out in Southwold.

We had stayed at Sutherland house three years ago and thoroughly enjoyed our time both at the 'restaurant with rooms' and Southwold in general. We had booked a table for lunch and the dining room was nearly full when we arrived. 2 large parties and several couples did not hinder the service which was smooth throughout our time there. We...

We stayed here and so are dinner downstairs. I have to say, it's a lovely setting and nice ambience and the service was extreme good; fastidious and knowledgable staff but not over the top either.
