We are working our way back to the lower southeast shore, and My Beloved Brit suggested a stop in Southwold, located on the eastern coast in Suffolk.
It is an upscale beach community with many beautiful homes, many of them second homes for Londoners.
We found a strange little historic “restaurant with rooms”, The Sutherland House, believed to be constructed in about 1455 with Georgian and Victorian extensions. Our suite is two rooms in what might be considered the attic, above the high street of the town.
There are very low ceilings with exposed beams , great space and a book on the table explaining the family’s heroic restoration efforts on the restaurant and a few rooms. Braver people than I.
The town revolves around the sea…
…and Adnams & Coy Brewery, which MBB arranged us to partake in a tour.
It is a small brewery, but has stayed in the village for many decades, and is still family run.
The tour was only for about 10 people, and we got a lovely tasting at the end.
It was a fun visit, and we goth to go to the an Adnams’ pub for dinner in the evening.
Still love a good pub. Nothing like fish and chips with the sounds of gulls outside the window.
