Just to show different folk, different views, I also stayed at Sutherland House on 23rd July 2014 with my wife and we could not praise this place highly enough. This was our second stay, the first was in the Duke of York room last October which was a stunning room full of character. This time we had the John Sutherland... More

My wife and I went to Sutherland House for dinner while enjoying a weekend stay in Southwold. Having read some rave reviews we had high hopes, especially as we'd already eaten at some excellent local restaurants. Maybe we expected too much - the menu was ok but we didn't feel spoilt for choice. My steak was cooked nicely, but my... More

great fresh seafood dishes and brilliant menu selection. Steaks were beautifully cooked to order and sides were perfect. Turkish delight icecream was amazing and a brilliant selection of teas. Thank you Sutherland House :D

We had dinner while on holiday in Southwold. All the food was excellently cooked and beautifully presented. The wines are excellent and good value for money. The staff are very friendly and it is a very relaxed dining experience. Overall it is a very good value restaurant. We will definitely be back.

Excellent food. I ordered the lobster and it was the best I've ever tasted. However I did feel that the staff got a bit over familar as the night went on with some of the comments they made. Also the ambient music was also a bit dodgy and out of keeping with the prices we were paying. It was particularly... More

Thank you very much for your kind words regarding our food, sorry about the music choice that evening, we usually stream carefully selected ambient music in the restaurant, however, the night in question we were experiencing Internet problems, hence the music choice and cutting off of music that evening. I am sorry if it spoilt your evening, I know exactly... More

One of my friend recommended us to stop at Southwold when we were to Norwich. The place is fantastic, lovely seaview from the beach and the upper walkpath all along the beach. We parked at the caravan park and walked to the pier, that's lovely. When we returned from the pier, we decided to walk at the upper walkpath and... More
