Was attracted to this place because of the look from the outside...very quaint, english countryside pub look. Food was nice, typical pub grub...nothing special, but tasty and plenty of it too. Probably slightly more expensive than I would expect to pay for a pub meal, but this is most likely due to its location. Staff were friendly and helpful. Overall... More

We were just walking around looking for a place to eat when we stumbled on Sutherlands. The service was great, the menu had a good selection of both food and wine and the food was good quality and very tasty. We will definitely visit again!

After visiting this restaurant the previous evening and receiving a warm welcome by the staff.We decided after a 15mile circular walk that we would have a meal at Sutherlands before going back to our b&b. It was very busy and was told there wasnt a table. We were about to leave when a young couple said they were leaving and... More
