Great food, lovely atmosphere.

We both had starters and mains, we also shared a dessert, all were a good size and delicious. Considering we had a few drinks each as well the bill was very... read more

One of our friends who has used Scutchers on many occasions has been pestering us to give it a try. Food and service were impeccable. Service friendly but not over the top. It maybe that our friends were well known meant that they got extra special treatment but we will give it a try on our own to see if... More

If you want to eat good fish and meat with out foam or smoke this is the place for you. Choose from the prime fish of halibut, turbot or a dover sole a half dozen oysters for starter. I seem to be drawn to my favourite of halibut with hollandaise and lime ,simple but it always delivers. My fellow diner... More

I had not visited Scutcher's for years, however enjoyed a superb meal last Saturday Evening. The food was excellent, well balanced and beautiful on the plate, scallops and turbot both cooked perfectly, the rest of the party also thoroughly enjoyed their dishes. The service was thoughtful unobtrusive and excellent and the welcome warm and inviting. We will definitely be returning.

We had looked forward to our first visit to this restaurant which is only open a few days a week. First impressions were good, and more spacious inside than appeared from outside. One of our party was in a wheelchair, and access was very easy. The menu offered either a fixed price with few choices and rather basic. Or more... More

Popped into Scutchers for a late lunch one Satruday, and was very pleased with the quality of the meal, and the service. I enjoyed a piece of venison that was absolutely perfect, and could not have been improved upon. It was accompanied by a decent rosti (though it was slightly thicker than I like and slightly too blonde), and of... More

The food and service here cannot be faulted. Yes it is a little more expensive than average but you get what you pay for. Highly recommended.
