We know all the restaurants in Southwold and the Sutherland House is the best. It leaves the Adnams establishments way behind in terms of food quality, standard of service and atmosphere. The menu changes frequently, the hosts are friendly and welcoming and it is also housed in one of the most historic buildings in Southwold. It is now our restaurant... More

We have been to sutherland house restaurant several times and the food and service is consistently of a high standard. The wine we chose was very drinkable and the scallops and black pudding for starter was very tasty. The sea bass was cooked to perfection, crispy on the base and moist on top and the bread and butter pudding was... More

Went to Surherland House for evening meal on last night of 7 day stay at Southwold. Had not booked as we thought that a Thursday night in mid-September would be quiet. As it turned out, the restaurant was filling up fast when we arrived at 1845 hrs, but friendly management managed to seat us nevertheless, and we had a really... More

I booked this on the reviews alone and I wasn't let down by the food. The atmosphere is more suited to somewhere you go for a special occasion with your parents rather than somewhere to pop in for a quick bite and wouldn't recommend taking young children. I'd booked a table so we could eat somewhere on the evening we... More

My husband and I ate at Sutherland House on 12 September on the final evening of a wonderful week in Southwold. We had eaten there during a previous visit and enjoyed it so much we were keen to return. The food is really excellent. My husband had an apple and celeriac soup to start, and I had a Norfolk cheese... More

Enjoyed a day trip to Southwold today with lunch in the beautiful garden of Sutherland House. Fabulous friendly and efficient service with delicious food beautifully presented. Particularly enjoyed Eton Mess for dessert together with humour from the host as he taught me the pronunciation of Eton !
