Sutherland House usually has the best food in town. This time we were disappointed. My wife had roast lamb. It was under-cooked and the knives provided would barely cut it. We will hope for better things next year !

We went as a group of 4 having looked for a good option locally on TripAdvisor and all felt the food was exceptional quality with beautiful flavours. I particularly loved the scallops with black pudding and roast pork accompanied by fantastic purees. All the food served at our table and others was well presented and all the empty plates spoke...

We visited for an evening meal. Lovely friendly welcome and an atmospheric dining room. The meal was nicely presented and tasty. An upmarket meal making a change from the pub grub on offer generally in Southwold.

The food is absolutely fabulous. Does fantastic fish dishes and excellent wine. Lovely atmosphere in a historical building full of charm. We always book a table when we are in town. Andy the owner is a very friendly guy as are all the waiting staff. We always get a warm welcome. Can't wait to go back. Suzanne & Colin

We eat out a lot and both agreed one of the best meals out we have experienced in a while. Food was cooked to perfection, quality ingredients, well presented, right combinations of flavours. Beats a lot of London restaurants hands down ! Really enjoyed the feel of the place and made welcome as soon as we stepped through the door... More

Had a really lovely evening, a warm welcome and food was amazing especially the chocolate fondant dessert with salted caramel, so yummy! While we were there there were 4 birthdays on separate tables with the staff coming out singing happy birthday, a lovely touch and other tables joined in with clapping and singing. I will definitely be back, thank you.

Reasonable food let down by slow and indifferent service. Would need significant improvements on both fronts before return visit.

Dear sirs, I am sorry that you felt the service on the extremely busy weekend did not meet with your approval and trust that it does not put your off visiting us in the near future. More

Charming oldest building in the High Street that had the potential of a good evening. When asked for cushions to ease my injured spine was told there was nothing available and had to go home to get some. The menu had limited food for a coeliac in that the dishes couldn't be changed even slightly and the dessert menu only... More

Sir It is disappointing you have chosen to be so personal and inaccurate with your review and upon reflection considering your rudeness on the evening perhaps we should not be so surprised. It is such a pity the rest of your party did not decide to write us a review as they all appeared to enjoy their evening immensely, add... More

This was our first visit to Sutherland House & have to say it was excellent. Staff were attentive & friendly. The food was fantastic! We will certainly be back to dine again when we return to Southwold.
