A beautiful place to stay with an excellent restaurant.

Excellent, friendly and helpful staff provided a relaxing atmosphere for our stay. The beauty of our room matched its history with everything complemented by the fantastic restaurant. We would unreservedly recommend Sutherland House.

We had stayed at Sutherland house three years ago and thoroughly enjoyed our time both at the 'restaurant with rooms' and Southwold in general. We had booked a table for lunch and the dining room was nearly full when we arrived. 2 large parties and several couples did not hinder the service which was smooth throughout our time there. We...

We stayed here and so are dinner downstairs. I have to say, it's a lovely setting and nice ambience and the service was extreme good; fastidious and knowledgable staff but not over the top either. Good was very good. I had the scallops with black pudding and it was delicious. The main however was a little on the small side... More

We only visit Southwold a couple of times a year, but always book our evening meal here. It has always lived up to our (high) expectations. A warm welcome, attentive staff but not intrusive, and of course exceptional food served at just the right pace. My fillet steak was well-flavoured and perfectly cooked whilst my husband enjoyed his roast cod.... More

We took our daughters to Southwold last week as a half term treat and while we waited for their pottery to dry at Gulls & Buoys, we had a lovely lunch at Sutherland House. This is our third visit and we were not disappointed. A very warm & friendly welcome from the Manager, our daughters ( aged 3 & 6... More

My partner and I eat here on a regular basis. We know all the staff well, the service and welcome we are given is tremendous. But this is the same for everyone whether its your first visit or after multiple visits. The food as usual was amazing, beautifully presented and delicious. Looking forward to the next visit.

Lovely restaurant, beautifully furnished offering plenty of room between tables The food was truly fantastic. I opted for the seafood platter - prawns, salmon, mackerel and anchovy with a lovely salad and fresh bread For dessert... More

We came to Sutherland House to celebrate my wife's birthday. We'd been before a few years earlier and had a wonderful time so were expecting great things again. Those expectations were met. The food, service and ambience were all excellent, and we'd recommend this restaurant to anyone in Southwold looking for fresh, delicious sea food and an all-round lovely evening.... More
