Featured Southwold Restaurants
1. Sole Bay Fish Company Fish & seafood restaurant in Southwold 22e Blackshore - IP18
Dickensian shed from the outside inside this harbourside shack is a wonderfully quirky restaurant and wet fish counter, whose superb fish dinners and fabulous cold seafood platters mean that its one of the worst-kept secrets in town! NB These days they also have a smokehouse and wine license, so its no longer BYO.
2. Sutherland House British, Modern restaurant in Southwold 56 High St - IP18
Now owned by The Rudd Family, B&B in a 15th-century building doubles as a consistently good fish restaurant with many changes of menu to reflect the best fish available; even the most critical reporter who expected better, still enjoyed the experience.
3. Coasters British, Traditional restaurant in Southwold Queen St - IP18
With the feel of a converted tearoom, this diminutive outfit makes a great alternative to Southwolds prestigious but pricey hotel kitchens; excellent local fish dominates the modestly priced menu, and theres a well-chosen wine list to go with it.
4. The Crown, Adnams Hotel British, Modern restaurant in Southwold 90 High St - IP18
This noted Adnams pub has been up and down over the past few years, and while fans of the beautifully fresh, locally sourced food and exceptional wines insist that what had appeared for some time to be a rudderless ship is vastly improved after the recent arrival of a new manager, others find it hard to believe how far this one-time destination has plummeted. One fixed point: theres a great buzz no matter which day you go.
5. The Swan British, Traditional restaurant in Southwold The Market Pl - IP18
There are many old fans of this famous, Adnams-run grand hotel; and its dining room, while stuffy, certainly looks the part. For critics, though, too many incidents of less-than-competent service and form-over-substance cooking take the shine off the experience. Its the worst we have experienced in many years of staying at The Swan hopefully the new chef will improve matters.
