A Legendary English Restaurant

Suffolk House, one of its most important colonial heritage landmarks in Penang, is also known as Penang’s first Great House. It is a stunning example of an Anglo-Indian garden house.

The 200-year-old building, together with its garden, portrays a stylish décor and picturesque lawn, while its restaurant being richly decorated with period furnishing. Throughout the year, Suffolk House caters for social and corporate functions and events, in spite of its prominent status as a top choice for English Afternoon Tea in Georgetown.

Apart from that, Suffolk House is also the winner of the Award of Distinction in the 2008 UNESCO Asia-Pacific Heritage Awards for Culture Heritage Conservation.
