On arrival, no one available to greet us, we had to search for a member of staff to confirm our arrival. Decor tired, dark and dated, which differed from the attractive outside. Our table faced an open untidy staff office.Bread and Olives offered which we assumed were complimentary, not so! The other local restaurant we tried offered nice warm rolls... More

We enjoyed a lovely meal at the Sutherland Restaurant. It was relaxed friendly atmosphere and staff were attentive but discreet so you did not feel as if you were being watched all the time. The food was delicious! I have not had such good food in a long time and as it was a special occasion the standard of cuisine... More

The food was excellent and the service very good too. We arrived early but were still shown to our table and were offered a drink. Didn't wait long for someone to take our food order. We will be back.

We stumbled across this place on a wander through Southwold. There was space outdoors with the sun beaming down; so it was perfect for mum and I and Tango the spaniel! It was set back from the passers by with lovely wooden planters. Couldn't decide what to have on the menu; we settled on fish cakes and mussels. The mussels... More

Excellent three course meal and personal service really made our birthday celebration special. Only request would be more of the delicious sauce on the cod main! Pork belly was AWESOME!

My friends and I have experienced a wonderfully cooked dinner in the splendid surroundings of this historical house. The desserts were superb and the service excellent. We were graciously treated although we had not booked on a busy night. If you love fish you will love the way the different fish dishes are prepared. We can't wait for our next... More

We love Southwold. Got there at around 12 and searched for an early lunch to allow time in the sun on the beach. Sutherlands House had been recommended. It lived up to expectations. We sat in the sunshine 'out the front' watching Southwold go by. Two sea food platters, a portion of fries and two local ciders. Sounded perfect. It... More

We had been to the Sutherland house about three years ago and had an exceptional lunch, they had prided themselves on local produce ( food miles ) and dominated the menu with fish. Recently returned to Southwold and took some friends. Was unfortunately not what we remembered. I don't know if it has new owners from then, or they have... More

Dear reviewer I am sorry you did not like the new menu format, in reality it is exactly the same as before except that rather than print new menu’s every day the daily specials are now on a black board, it is a pity you did not notice this at the time. More
