Beautiful meal

We were lucky to get a table for two last Friday (due to a cancellation). We had all fish course (there was 2 meat options). The food was excellent, the atmosphere was relaxed . Service was great, especially the blonde lady who was always on the ball. I'll go back next time I'm in southwold

We have been going to Southwold for a family holiday every year since 2010, usually at the end of August / early September, and have eaten at Sutherland House on every visit (I submitted a review after the first in Sep-10). The dining area, although split in two, is a nice environment with lovely ceiling detailing from its previous incarnation... More

My family and I stayed at Sutherland House on the 27th and 28th August, and chose to eat in the restaurant both nights, as we know the food is always excellent. We really enjoyed the meal on both nights, and the staff were very attentive and helpful - this was the same at breakfast time with a different waitress on... More

Sutherland House is outstanding and our latest visits were a joy from start to finish. To start, try the scallops with black pudding or mackerel with water melon. Main courses comprise the freshest possible fish, are elegantly presented and taste delicious, Sutherland House is one of those rare destination restaurants which, even if Southwold itself wasn't so wonderful, would provide...

Every year we visit Southwark, and every year we love coming to Sutherland House. Fantastic food, lovely friendly service. Came here for 3 meals in the week and not disappeared at all. Highly recommended.

Whilst we are regulars here, our first visit as part of a group of 8. All of our guests live in London and are very used to eating in top tier restaurants there. They were all very impressed with the menu, excellent quality of food and the high level of service. Praise indeed. A fantastic evening. Thank you.

Had Sunday lunch. Food was excellent as was the service. A very good choice of fish but could have had a little more meat choice. However, I would definitely go again.

Went last night, the food, service and attention to customer service was exceptional. A must try establishment for foodies. This Resturant is not cheap it is however good value.
