We've been calling in here for meals over the last 3 years and the place is unfortunately going downhill. It smells bad and needs a good overhaul and in-depth cleaning. The staff were average two years ago but are now not very friendly at all. The range of the menu is as good as ever but the quality of the... More

We used to come here often, but lately the place is not the same. The food is hit and miss. The old lady with the short blond hair just makes the customers feel like an inconvenience, just wants to rush you to order as fast and possible and has a slight flip attitude. Most of the other staff are really... More

Visited here on Saturday 5th, although the whole place was quiet the service was slow. Food was disappointing and didn't taste fresh, which is not surprising at the vast menu. I felt like I was 'bothering' the staff when I disturbed their 'chatting' to order drinks. With regards to the atmosphere, I felt the place was quite dirty and grimy... More

Had a Sunday lunch not bad but with a lot of better places near by they would have to do better. Service was friendly but slow and felt like you had to pester for anything you needed. Busy Sunday may have been the reason for this but feel they could do better

We had our wedding reception in the Bistro on a Saturday afternoon in June. The whole process from planning through to execution was very smooth, the service efficient and courteous on the day and an excellent time was had by all. Thank you.

We visited the sutton arms on Father's Day for a family meal. We went straight to the bar to get our drinks and to find out where we were sitting. The drinks cost £9 odd for 4 pints of pop which came out of ASDA bottles. The lady behind the bar was extremely rude and ignorant. We waited over 40... More

been here quite a few times in the past and its never been the same twice. when I went today the chicken was really dry, the Yorkshire Puddings were like cardboard, and the service was slow (we waited about 40 mins for our main course) the best part of the 3 course meal was the desert, and even that was...
