Included in the “150 best restaurants in the UK” by the
Sunday Telegraph August 2012
Under the care of its owners Andy & Kinga Rudd, this fine building has been given a new lease of life and now offers a gorgeous environment with wood burning stoves, rich fabrics, lovingly prepared food and a warm welcome.Sutherland House Hotel and fish Restaurant is located on Southwold High Street, and is one of the oldest and most historically important buildings in Southwold. The historical features of a house dating back to 1455, and having Two Star listed status, contrast with comfortable but contemporary furnishings and sumptuous fabrics. Our fish restaurant has been awarded two rosettes by the AA for the quality of our food. The food is locally sourced, we print "food miles" on our menu to quantify this, and we only use seasonal ingredients. You will not find Asparagus or Strawberries here out of the English growing season and some of our vegetables and soft fruit has only 400 "food yards" on it as comes from our own allotment in Southwold! The cycle is complete as we compost all of our vegetable peelings at the allotment in an attempt to reduce our carbon footprint as far as possible. We have been awarded "Best Restaurant in the UK for use of Local Produce " from the good food guide, and Restaurant Magazine Best "Sausage and Mash" for our Local free range Pork and Black Pudding sausages. BPEX 2009 Award winner for "Best Pork and Pastry Product" for our Pork Pie with Piccalilli.Our bedrooms have respected the shape of the original rooms, therefore the rooms are of a very generous size, and have fabulous original features. A sleigh bed under a 1660 pargetted ceiling or a six foot, double ended slipper bath in front of a massive fireplace are two of the highlights. This accommodation is boutique, but in an amazing medieval building, truly unlike any other Hotel bedrooms in Southwold.
