It's a few years since we dined at Sutherland House and we were delighted we had booked to dine here again. The menu is not huge but the dishes are imaginative and beautifully presented on interesting crockery, and we had no problem finding something to eat! Our starters were the prawns, and the beef carpaccio, followed by cod and smoked...

Went back to Sutherland House for the third time and had another fabulous meal. Great service, lovely host and all the meals were good quality. The scallop starters were fab, spicy prawns excellent. All the main fish courses were fresh and tasty. All in all a fab evening, with great wine, recommended by the host.

The 4 stars sign on the property actually states this. Only 4 rooms (soon to be 5) above a highly rated restaurant. Not open on Mondays, so we could not judge. The house has a lot of history and the rooms refelcted that. Accessible via a narrow steep staircase, this is not a place for people with any mobility issues....

It is difficult to write this review because nothing was awful and nothing fantastic. The food was mediocre and the service perfectly alright but it did lack sparkle. One felt that you eat there at the convenience of the restaurant as opposed to the other way round. (Try making a booking later than 7.00 p.m.or sitting past 10.00p.m. over coffee...

What a lovely place. We stayed in the smaller room, which was perfect for a put your head down room, and it was perfectly formed with a lovely bathroom. We also stayed in for dinner-which was fab. Food was really good, lovely menu and great tasting dishes. Good host. Not much to be able to moan about at this hotel!...

Southwold, a beautiful quaint town on the Suffolk coast, full of old world charm. The high street is packed with interesrting shops, hotels, cafes and restaurants, and bustles year round with locals people and visitors. So to Sutherland House on the high street for lunch on Sunday 5 February 2017. There's something very old world about this particular restaurant, but...

To you sir, whilst you were entitled to your opinion, due to your ungentlemanly conduct towards my staff on the day, your opinion in my book has little or no merit. Quite frankly, you had no right to speak to my staff the way you did. No matter what you perceived your problem to be, it did not justify the...

We stayed here the last week in January for my husband's special birthday. We booked the Duke of York room which was magnificent - very roomy, warm, cosy and comfortable with all home comforts like coffee, biscuits, TV etc. Andy and the staff were lovely - its a real family hotel/restaurant and every member of staff made a big fuss...

We've just stayed two days at Sutherland House. The accomodation was splendidly decorated with a King sized bed, comfortable furnishings, clean linen and an AMPLE sized ensuite bathroom with a bath in the centre! The weather was definitely cold outside but inside it was well heated and our room and large ensuite felt very homely. We ate the first night...

This is an Inn with bedrooms, so when the restaurant is closed you have to access the bedrooms via the back door, which was no problem. I was upgraded on arrival to what I assume is the biggest bedroom; it had a Super King size bed and lovely curtains and furnishings. And the en suite bathroom was HUGE, with a...

Had a two night break in the John Sutherland Suite, it's truly stunning. Set on the high street, Sutherland House is a gloriously decorated place to stay and eat. It's within a gentle 5 minute stroll to the beach, if you can get past the coffee shops and delicatessens. The suite covers the entire top floor and comprises of a...
