“Delicious Food”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

Had lunch at Sutherland House last Friday and was thoroughly impressed. The fish chowder and pan roasted sea bass were utterly delicious. The manager and waiter were very welcoming and served us well. My Partner went for the steak which just melted in the mouth. We will return when we can.

“Solid cooking, well worth a look”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

We went here for Sunday lunch last weekend, having walked past it hundreds of times but never gone in.

Well, we'll be going in again!

We were early for lunch, which was useful as almost all the tables were booked. A pretty good menu, with much of it devoted to fish as per the billing on the chalkboard outside of the "only fish restaurant" in town, although the starters were rather meh looking. Two courses for £15 was pretty fair though, with plaice on the bone fine and the pork looking very nice indeed. The kids menu is good as well - and unadvertised outside.

Desserts were excellent - real quality after solid main courses. Entirely reasonable service as well and overall much better than the normal Sunday lunch stuff you get in places. Well worth a go.

“A beautiful location...restaurant....service...and food”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

We ate at the Sutherland Hotel with friends on Groupon vouchers. The service was warm and welcoming....the surroundings old worldy.....the food and service were exceptional. My Thai fish cakes....sea bass and butterscotch cheesecake were to die for. We will definately return and would highly recommend it to anyone.

“Lovely in every way”
Reviewed 23 March 2012

Great food and attentive staff. Fish is very fresh and all dishes are well presented. Portions are of a good size. Will definitely go back to sample the bread and butter pudding again as it was fabulous.

“Excellent ,can well recommend it !”
Reviewed 16 March 2012 via mobile

Came with no expectations of this for a birthday celebration , and we were both well impressed ,lovely ambiance, very friendly courteous and informative staff, who knew when to help and when to leave you to enjoy , wine was recommended was excellent particularly the dessert wine ! The food was cooked to perfection with portion sizes being just right and lovely flavours , the black pudding with the scallops particularly merits a mention ! The venison, which despite this being a fish restaurant, i couldn't resist was perfectly cooked the red cabbage sweet with a touch of spice and the mushrooms full of flavour , my only very slight area for improvement was the cheese was served to cold and should have been left out for longer however this was nothing in the overall experience, would certainly go again, and thank Sutherland house for a lovely evening
