Scutchers' food rarely, if ever disappoints. Memorable lamb, beef fillet that just melts in the mouth, lovely light tempura and fantastic crispy duck were among the delights that we savoured on our last visit. The only two potential downsides are that it is priced at the higher end of the range and that it always feels a little bit flat... More

We went to Scutchers for a friends birthday Sunday lunch, he had booked the entire restaurant, there were probably 90 odd guests there, both friends & family; the service was excellent, lovely canapés arriving every 10 minutes before lunch, nice friendly efficient service. The meal was good too, nice pinkish roast beef, well cooked vegetables, tasty gravy, & a yummy... More

Today my husband and I celebrated our golden wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday at Scutchers. Our expectations were high as we have been to this superb restaurant many times before but the lunch for twelve today was simply wonderful and was praised as superb by all twelve of us. Food, service, atmosphere were absolutely the best. We cannot recommend... More

We stopped here for lunch on Saturday. The whole experience was first class with attentive and friendly service. The food was amazing, the sauce that came with quail starter was delicious. Our mains of turbot was the best fish my girlfriend has ever eaten. My beef medallions were cooked beautifully, the meat was so tender. Our desserts were the same,... More

Great quality food, expertly cooked, polite friendly staff, and great service. We were celebrating my wifes birthday and the table was decorated with little 'happy birtday' confetti, very thoughtful. This is the best restaurant anywhere close to Sudbury and my favourite.

I had the pleasure of a meal at this restaurant on a Saturday night to celebrate my parents ruby wedding anniversary. I am happy to comment on three aspects. The greeting was warm and friendly with no undue rush or fuss, the greeting I believe was from the owner and her warm and friendly approach clearly transferred down to the... More

I cannot think what must have gone wrong last weekend June 6th. because there are two very poor reviews for this terrific restaurant and that is almost unknown, perhaps Nick was ill. Anyway my husband and myself dined here on a very busy Saturday evening June 14th and had an exquisite meal. Scutchers is never cheap but the standard is... More
