I have just moved to the area and i wanted to celebrate our move with my partner. We stumbled across scutchers restaurant by chance and was not sure what to expect! However! We were totally blown away by our experience! The service is amazing, the owner introduced herself and explained a bit about the restaurant and that her husband is... 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 booked a table for dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. The meal service and attention to detail were without fault. Nick, Di, thank you and your team for a wonderful evening and beautiful meal the review in the Suffolk magazine were totally justified and real value for money. Look forward to returning. best regards James & Bev

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

A warm welcome from our host/owner Diane, nice cosy snug area to relax by the open fire and enjoy a glass of vino from a superb wine list. The restaurant offers a set menu which looks great value, on this occasion we decided to choose our own, I had the tempura prawns with a chilli dip (beautiful light tempura batter... More

A good welcome, good service, good wine, unfortunately the food was massively disappointing, and we very quickly realised that Scutchers is a prime example of style over substance. We had seafood in tempura (heavy) fried in oil that been reused many times (when it arrived at the table it smelt like something from the local chippy) and the oysters were... More

Appalling ambience, flavourless food and surly service. The attitude of the owners is a disgrace. Long Melford deserves better.
