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

visited in feb 2014 at dinner time, the food was not great but at the end of the day you get what you pay for and it was not expensive. The fish (cod) was not as big as I expected but was tasty for the price. The pint of beer I had was quite shocking, I waited 10 mins while... More
