An amazingly broad menu and excellent take-away service!

What a great 'Lamb Dinner' ! Not only were we able to order four excellent lunches for £4 each but we also took home two huge real dinner plates finely cling-wrapped for absent friends! It is very hard to believe that such a vast menu can be available! Great service, interesting decor. Our... read more

I have visited this pub a few times with my family for dinner on Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday lunch time. Each visit we were greeted with a friendly atmosphere and accommodating staff. The food is very tasty and always on a hot plate. if you're in the area, I'd recommend having a meal but do book first as... More

Had a Chicken Parmesan, as did 2 other people in our party. Mine, unfortunately, had very little bechamel sauce on it and some of my chips were hard and some soft. There is a vast choice on the menu and the specials board. The service was efficient and friendly. Having eaten here before this meal was not up to their... More

As a rule I hate this site and never really take any notice if eating out, but upon entering the Sutton Arms it appeared quite welcoming, the tripadvisor sign on the door should of been a give away to the landlord/managers attitude. Written in black ink across the top "for spinless people" which I'm certainly not if there's something wrong... More

amazing Sunday lunch but come at 12 noon or book a table. The other menu here is vast and can be mind blowing however steaks are good and so are the pies pastas and curry dishes. Chips are fab

Tried this for Sunday lunch after a friends recommendation. Ok I suppose. Tables packed together far too tightly thereby meaning you juggle your plate so as not to end up with the customer on the next table dipping their bum in your lunch if they wish to move. Ok for a bought Sunday lunch but nothing to rave over. Not... More

My husband and I occasionally pop in for tea. The menu is very varied and hard to believe you could actually get some dishes ad hoc ie Parrott fish! There fore the food is likely to be frozen rather than freshly prepared. However, for basic hearty food like shepherds pie, liver and bacon it's tasty and good value for money.... More

Booked a table for 4 with some friends for a "shared" Valantines meal out. Warm welcome on arrival, was nice, and we were told the table wasn't ready, (to be fair, we were a bit early), so had a drink at the bar. There were 2 menus when we got our table, (A Valentines Special menu, @ £25.99 for 3... More
