Diners at a Southwold hotel are being offered a tasty wager at the end of their meal - heads you pay, tails it's free.
The manager of Sutherland House Hotel and Restaurant in the High Street is giving customers the chance to guess a coin toss and potentially not pay a penny for their meal.
When trying to come up with a promotion for early in the week, when diners are usually less likely to go out for food, manager Andy Rudd decided a two for one offer was a bit humdrum.
'I was just trying to come up with something a bit different, a bit of fun really. You hear about wacky Wednesdays and all these puns. It was just a play on words,' he said.

Sutherland House dates from 1450 and was once the home of the Duke of York, later King James II, who commanded the Battle of Sole Bay. The room he stayed in has an ornamental plasterwork ceiling, incorporating the Stuart Fleur de Lys and a seahorse.

The restaurant, which has two AA rosettes, uses locally sourced ingredients. Toss Up Tuesday, which does not include drinks, was launched this week.
'The atmosphere in here was amazing,' said Mr Rudd.
'All the tables were all interacting with each other, they were all cheering and jeering and making the obvious jokes about it being a two headed coin.'
