We came here of an evening in the week and were easily seated. Many diners seemed to be staying in the hotel but that didn't matter. We decided to come on the strength of the trip advisor rating and were defiantly bit disappointed. The food was amazing and service was very good. Southwold is a... read more

The halibut the first night was fresh and beautifully cooked and this was followed the next night by a very tender fillet steak. A great two nights. Thank... More

I have eaten here before in the evening and the menu is bigger and more exciting, excellent in fact. I would have liked a little more choice in a lunchtime menu. Having eaten here twice before in one week, a huge treat for us, we obviously think the food and service is superb. We will be back when next in... More

Lovely meal as always, the menu focuses on fish, which we like, all the dishes were excellent. A fine historic building - make sure you take a good look at the wonderful ceiling. Friendly, welcoming staff.

My husband and I were lucky enough to book a table for dinner the night before New Year's Eve at this popular restaurant .

The surroundings are intimate and the table service we received from the waiting staff and owner were excellent without being... More
