This place is appalling and should be closed down. I drive past it every day and even after the owner being taken to court due to selling rotting food they are still trading and have a full car park most days. Avoid like the plague, ore you might get it!

I visited the Sutton Arms a couple of months ago. As I always do before visiting a restaurant I checked their food hygene rating online. I was shocked to see how low it was.
