“The Perfect Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

This was our second visit to Sutherland House and we can't wait to return. The food was exquisite, the staff were friendly and attentive without being overbearing and the ambience and log fire all went to make it a perfect birthday lunch.
I was also impressed by the fact that the food is sourced locally and GF options are marked on the menu. (The latter made us decide to visit to the restaurant in the first place.) Well done Sutherland House!

“Excellent sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Just had a long weekend in Southwold with family and had booked Sunday lunch at Sutherland House. Fantastic meal, excellent service and a very friendly relaxed atmosphere. Next time we are definitely going to book for dinner on Saturday night.

“Excellent food so ate there twice, third evening it was closed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We have just returned from a three night stay in Southwold and ate at Sutherland House on two out of the three nights. The only reason we did not eat there on the third night was that it is closed on a Monday. The restaurant has a lovely log fire giving a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. The food is cooked to a very high standard and the waiters are friendly and polite. The Wild Sea Bass was cooked to perfection. Desserts were very good too, my partner enjoyed the bread and butter pudding so much the first night that he ordered it again the next time. I had the sticky toffee pudding with clotted cream ice cream which was to die for. The wine list is good and reasonably priced. Would recommend.

“Great ambiance, rooms were well serviced, food was excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We visited late February for a short break, Southwold is a great place to visit & lovely seaside town. We attended an Adnam's brewery tour which was very informative & interesting. Sutherland House was an excellent choice of accommodation, a lovely period building, where we were made to feel very welcome. Our room 'The Earl of Sandwich' was beautiful & very comfortable. However, it had to be said that the food in the restaurant was excellent as were the breakfasts, very high quality with amazing flavours. We would have no hesitation to recommend this accommodation/restaurant to others, we shall certainly make future visits. Outstanding!
