I stayed for a night and cannot praise this place enough. Not only were the rooms amazing but the food was probably the best in the whold town of Southwold. It really has to be seen to appreciate the amazing rooms and historic importance of this warm, comfortable place.

Comfortable seating with a relaxing ambiance. A great menu choice which lived up to a high expectation. A good cellar and warm friendly service. A must visit restaurant if you... More

I can confirm that due to this guest’s behavior we took the unprecedented step of asking him to leave the restaurant and as a result, I suspect the motive behind this review. More
