Rediscovered delight

I've had several meals here 4 or 5 years ago but then the owners told me they were closing the business so I hadn't been there since. Then recently I acquired a 'Tastecard' (2 for 1 meal deals etc) and was surprised to see Scutchers listed amongst the participating restaurants, and since then I've... read more

We went here for our anniversary with high hopes. While the service was fine and friendly, the food was plain and uninspiring. I had anticipated savouring every morsel, but instead I was so bored that I couldn't be bothered by the time it came to ordering desert. My starter, kidneys in puff pastry, was soaked in gravy and was a... More

We have visited Scutchers for years and always enjoy a fantastic evening. The food is of the finest quality - prepared and presented perfectly. It is a delight to choose from a menu of interesting yet unpretentious meals. We hope to keep returning....

Booked a table for a Thursday night. As we don't live in the area, we hadn't visited before. The restaurant was a little quiet which we didn't mind. Service was impeccable and the food glorious. Have lovely to eat somewhere where quality comes before quantity. I had the goat's cheese and beetroot salad and my partner had smoked chicken salad.... More

We've been visiting this restaurant for many years, and have NEVER been dissappointed, unlike some of the top London Venues. Nick and Diane Barret have a wonderful balance of food/service/affordable good wines and atmosphere.They catered for our 50th anniversary and all young and old really enjoyed the food, and have talked about it ever since. The menu is always interesting,... More

Booked table as a surprise for my husband for us as a couple along with daughter & son in law. I had never dined here before but had heard from various sources that it was a must for fantastic food. Sorry, not so. Service good but food quality, tastiness & portions average. Ridiculously over priced for the quality. I was... More

My wife and I had a lovely meal and wine. Lovely setting fresh flower and candle on the table. Both our starters were sublime my main was nice but nothing special however the cheese & biscuits were the best I have ever had. Husband & wife establishment both very friendly.

Amazing food! Its not cheap, but its worth every penny. And whilst it's a special treat, it's neither pretentious nor poncy and a lovely night out!

20 years ago I was invited to this restaurant, bistro like, lovely food, but I did not chose it for special occasions for quite a while perhaps because it was more bistro than a sofisticated venue. I can't remember. But what I know now is that Scutchers is my first choice around Sudbury area and afar. Lovely dressed tables and... More
