About the restaurant
All of our dining will be either 6.30 or 7.00pm starts, unfortunately we will not be able to offer any later tables.

Our Adult only fine dining restaurant has been awarded two rosettes by the AA for the quality of our food.

We aim to host the majority of our summer and early autumn dining, alfresco in our newly built under cover outside dining experience in the garden. IMPORTANT ! when booking during this period please note, dining maybe inside or outside and will be weather dependent and whilst we understand that some of you may book with us to experience the outside booths, on the night should the weather becomes extreme, we unfortunately may need to move the dining experience inside. .

PLEASE NOTE DRESS CODE IS SMART CASUAL FOR DINNER:
SORRY NO CHILDREN OR DOGS ALLOWED

Dinner at Sutherland House is always a delight - so much so that we ate there twice in the space of four days. Everything we had was delicious, full of flavour and a variety of textures and colours! Desserts are excellent although I can't avoid the bread and butter pudding. The house sparkling wine was a great choice and rounding the meal off with a wonderful malt was just perfect!

About the restaurant
Welcome to the Lodge at Salhouse, we are a family run pub occupying a charming 19th century vicarage. The pub has recently been renovated, including comfortable bedrooms set in seven acres of countryside garden.

We are fortunate to be surrounded by the picturesque Norfolk Broads, while Salhouse boasts numerous scenic walks for both guests and four-legged friends to enjoy.

The neighbouring village of Wroxham provides plentiful amenities including a department store, local shops and cafes, and is popular with holidaymakers wishing to hire boats - we would all agree that one of the best ways to experience the Broads is on the water!

Norfolk also boasts 90 miles of award-winning coastline, with lots of variety to explore. From sandy beaches and rugged cliffs to salt marshes, there really is a beach for everyone! Here at the Lodge our closest stretch of beach is only a half-hour drive away.

It was our friend Helen's first time at The Assembly Rooms and as always the food was excellent. My Uncle had the Cheese Tea for the first time and loved it. We all had the Chocolate Factory Tea, which was delightful. As usual, when you come for tea, bring an appetite!
