We had dinner here for our anniversary while staying in Southwold. It is busy restaurant, not very large with a small bar. There are a lot of fish dishes and the 2 we had, sea bass and halibut were beautiful. The crab taco starter was also amazing. We were recommended a wine which was at the lower end of the... More

Another trip to Southward and this time we managed to fit in two visits to Sutherland House. The food, service and ambience was still excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The Sea Bass fillets were cooked to perfection and their home made orange marmalade ice cream is heavenly.

We recently enjoyed a lovely week in glorious Southwold and to console ourselves on our last night booked a return visit to Sutherland House. It's such a treat. The food is sublime - I went for the slow-braised belly of Blythburgh pork and the deconstructed style with mash, apple fondant, creamed cabbage and black pudding was innovative and well executed....

My wife took me to Sutherlands for a birthday dinner. It was an excellent choice, the food was delicious and very nicely presented by friendly and attentive staff. We were introduced to English wine which was surprisingly good, actually quite outstanding. We were met enthusiastically at the door and shown immediately to our table so I forgot to look at...

We come back to this restaurant every year on our annual trip to Southwold. We are never disappointed. This year was no exception. Excellent food, great service. Faultless.

Knew in advance we had the cheapest room; no more than we expected small but clean. Perhaps shower could be better; fancy bath but weak shower. Staff helpful and friendly. Food very good. If staying read about the "old building" and access; bedroom access difficult if mobility problems; but they do warn you before booking as they do about no... More
