We have been to the Sutton Arms on many occasions and have always found the food and service to be of a good standard. We were there last week and had the chefs grill and liver & onions that were on the Two for £8 menu. What great value this was, we will be back soon.

Visited the Sutton Arms again even after all the bad reviews and bad press. My family and I had no complaints then and certainly none this time. Staff were very friendly, welcoming and attended to our every need. The owners Alan & Joe were very open and honest about their situation. Please dont let this put you off visiting and... More

Went last night and we had parmos, they were fantastic very tasty and only £4 each and the wine was only £5 you can't get a take away for that. All the staff are very happy and helpful nothing was a problem, we will be going back soon as it is rare to find a pub like this.

Went here on the spur of the moment without knowing about bad reviews. The menu is huge and the prices were excellent value at only £4.95 for a bar meal. We all had different meals and everyone enjoyed what they had. The staff were really welcoming and friendly. This added to the enjoyment of the lunch. If I had read... More

Visited the Sutton last night for a three generation family meal.Staff couldn't have been more welcoming food excellent value brilliant. Obviously the problems that occurred 14 months ago are long gone. It's a pity the press just print bad reviews.

Went here this evening after reading damning reports on social media and other media. We went here often before the "hoohaa"! We were greeted by Chris (the manager) and Alan (the owner) with a very warm welcome. I had a fantastic mixed grill and my good Lady had a very tasty Chinese chicken stir-fry. The meal was fantastic and very... More

However, the UK and Teesside dining experience has moved on in leaps and bounds since the 70s, with quality and variety all within a short drive/walk of Stockton, Yarm & Darlington etc.... More
