Suffolk's Round House restaurant changes hands

Father-and-son team John and Jonathan Dean have bought the Round House restaurant in Thorington, Suffolk.

The Grade II-listed thatched building occupies two acres of gardens and woodlands near the A12 and is within easy reach of the Suffolk Heritage Coast, the coastal town of Southwold and the RSPB's Minsmere bird reserve (which attracts 100,000 visitors a year).

It dates back to the 1800s when it served as the keepers' cottage (called Thorington Road) for the Thorington Hall Estate.

Previous owners Glen and Alison Allenby converted the site into a 36-seat restaurant, bar and four-bedroom family home.

The Norwich office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the freehold off an asking price of £450,000.
