Lovely food, beautifully presented and friendly efficient service. Hotel now closed for refurbishment for 6 months, will be a loss to Southwold during this time but looking forward to experiencing the new concept!

The atmosphere was subdued and the setting high-end. Found this a surprise as was expecting a buzzier place. That said, and once settled, the food was good and at £35 for a three course just about right - just.
