I took my young teenage daughter here for a treat last Friday evening. We haven't been for a while but the meals we've had here in the past have been great. The new Bar is a lovely addition and really gives the restaurant a lifted ambience. We were both really looking forward to the evening and we weren't disappointed. I... More

Enjoyed an excellent three course meal in comfortable surroundings with very attentive and friendly service. Sea bass and steak done to perfection. We had not planned to have a dessert but the selection was very tempting and we succumbed to chocolate fondant and the pear and almond frangipane tart. Delicious!

We are local and regularly use a birthday as an excuse to go to Sutherland House. The owner, Andy, always remembers us and treats us like VIPs. The food has always been lovely but tonight it was a step up - the lamb was outstanding. Highly recommend Sutherland House for a special, quiet, delicious dinner in Southwold!

I'm so glad we chose to eat here. We received a lovely smiley welcome. Unlike so many other eateries we peered into this restaurant allowed room at the tables and we didn't feel squeezed in. The excellent service continued through the meal and the food was delicious. We both had the fresh and very tasty Sunday roast followed by scrumptious... More

Have been here many times and it never fails to please. However last night was exceptional. Further improvements have been carried out last month and the atmosphere is excellent. Unrivalled standard of service and amazing food make this a must to visit when in the area. Thanks Andy and team for a great evening!

Excellent chef who presents food beautifully. Thoroughly recommend though quite pricey. The fish dishes were particularly fresh and well cooked.

The menu was extremely tempting and we shared a delightful sea bream dish and a goats cheese and apple cake. Every effort had gone into stunning flavours and beautiful presentation, making this a really special evening.
