A lovely outdoor space has been created - plenty of heaters and all covered so good for any weather. Lovely food. Very friendly staff. Very committed to being as Covid safe as possible. Would highly recommend.

Outstanding food, setting and service. Andy was the perfect host and the food really was first class. The setting in the garden created a great atmosphere and COVID guidelines carefully followed without encroaching on a great evening. Excellent evening and we look forward to returning...very soon.More

Beautifully presented and really delicious food in a lovely garden setting. We were also very impressed with the care and attention to detail for dining in the current covid environment. The restaurateurs have thought though the experience and turned their outside area into a cosy...and comfortable place to eat. But above all, the food was really excellent. We were lucky to get a cancellation...book well in advance.More

We enjoyed an anniversary meal at Sutherland House last night. The tables are set within wooden cabins around a large tree in their pretty garden. Everything possible had been done to make guests feel relaxed and Covid safe. The food, wine, service and atmosphere were...all excellent. The husband and wife team owners work extremely hard to make sure every guest feels special and has the best experience possible. Book in advance, you won’t be disappointed.More

Just had an excellent meal at the Sutherland this evening. The fish options on the menu were all amazing, we had 4 separate fish options between two of us and all were excellent. Can’t wait to eat here again! You need to book well in...advance, there is a very good reason for that! Best restaurant in Southwold.More

My better half organised a surprise overnight stay for my 50th at the Sutherland Hotel and we also had the meal there. The restaurant (due to covid) currently operates outside with some wonderfully purpose built seating areas which provided intimacy, a lovely ambience and atmosphere...you could only ask for. The staff/owners were very friendly, made us feel very welcome. Covid measures are necessary but did not get in the way of the evening, well managed. The menu choice is small but that generally signals freshness and quality...and yep delivered on both. Food is fantastic! The service was perfect, good timing between courses. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 courses and drinks, we'll definitely recommend Sutherland's to anyone and everyone. Thanks Matt and SarahMore

The team at Sutherland House have worked very hard to keep their customers safe. I’m not ordinarily a fan of eating outside but you get all the benefits of being inside in your mini cabin booths for two whilst enjoying being in a lovely garden....Service was swift, an excellent wine list and food was great. I would recommend this restaurant for a relaxing but romantic evening. Even better if you love fish. Puddings were amazing.More

Lovely 3 night stay at our favourite hotel. Great breakfasts and great evening meal in the purpose built sheltered tables in the garden. Good scallops and monkfish starters and main courses of halibut and cod plus delicious desserts. Andy makes a lot of effort and...in covid times it was all well managed and safe. Had fab weather to top it off and even swam in the sea. Lovely being based so centrally to access the beautiful Southwold.More

Whilst we do not have a parking space at Sutherland House, Southwold has lots of free on road parking and it is just a matter of knowing where to look. We recommend you arrive to the rear of us in Victoria street, pull up... More
