This is a lovely restaurant with good food and excellent service. The owner was attentive and even sorted out a problem with the bill in an efficient and professional manner. Highly recommended.

Lovely food, good wine & great service. Went here last night for my girlfriends 30th birthday, so it needed to be good. It far exceeded our expectations & we will certainly be returning. Thanks very much to the owner who went above & beyond to ensure it was a special evening for us & the rest of the service team... More

Southwolds always been one of my favourite places and only 45 mins from home. So when I wanted somewhere special to celebrate my 50th birthday quietly with family that's where I looked. Sutherland House was highly recommended by friends and being run by a school friend I hadn't seen in 30 years, expectations were high. I wasn't disappointed. Being met... More

Met on arrival by jovial host. The menu was fully self explaining. Good choice of drinks with myself going for a St Peters beer and my wife having local cider. Good to find something other than Adnams. Starter of muscles for me and scallops for my wife, followed by the most delightful monkfish I have ever had. cooked to perfection.... More

Had Sutherland House's lunch time special of turkey and all the trimmings! Best turkey meal I have had. So beautifully presented that it seemed a shame to spoil it! Great favours all round and 8 different vegetables! Compliments to the chef and the bonus being such great value for money! Nice to see a restaurant not skimping on lunch time... More

Very fresh seafood, a good English wine and an owner with a sense of humour made for a great experience and we could understand the high ratings! Only negative....the main course was not really hot enough...but it was still good!!

We had turbot, halibut, mussels, prawns and cod amongst other fish dishes. they were all incredibly fresh and very well cooked - faultless in fact. The service is excellent and the whole experience is something we would like to repeat.

Excellent food. First class service, and Andy Rudd made the night for us. We used trip advisor to find Sutherland House and we were not disappointed. We were made to feel very comfortable and welcome as soon as we walked in and certainly will be having another meal there.

We planned a family meal for 3 here again - our favourite place to eat in Southwold- but we ended up taking 2 friends for their 1st meal there. They have been in the restaurant business so it is always good to get their take on the food. We all had a great meal - the halibut was declared 'amazing'... More
