We arrived at 6.30pm it took a long time for staff to take our order. We ordered 2 starters which took 55 minutes to arrive. Waiters did notice this and explained the crab cakes were been made fresh. But still we felt this was to long to wait. The potato wedges we ordered were very dry and disappointing. For main... More

In my younger days I used to go to the Sutton Arms a few times a week but as life and family changed I stopped going. Recently i took my family for a meal in the bar rather than the restaurant. The menu is vast and the food is cooked to order. The staff are great, the environment charming. If... More

We quite often visit this lovely pub for lunch. As usual the food was good and staff at tentative. Very interesting looking around at all the different things on the walls. Look forward to visiting again quite soon as the prices are very reasonable.

After being told about this place thought would give it a try. Glad we did and I wasn't disappointed. Just off the A66 in Elton this little place has a vast array of food, Bank holiday menu £5.95, specials menu £6.95 and then your Al' acarte menu also. The specials are before 1800 hrs. I had the steak pie with... More

We decided to come out Christmas Eve. Lovely time , sat near fire, attentive staff. Our food was great , we had a mixed starter and everyone enjoyed their main course. The only downside was small napkins . The drinks were reasonable price with meals . 3 generations enjoyed our night out. Thank you

We booked here for Christmas Day Lunch after a recommendation of a friend. It was nothing special. Starter was ok. Turkey Dinner wasn't great. Yorkshire pudding was inedible. The centre of it was a big hard lump of solid batter about the size of an apple. Yuk. The roast potatoes were burned and the mash was bland and had certainly... More

Myself and 3 hiking colleagues were hear on Tuesday 6th December as a result of 3 or 4 recommendations , and we certainly were very impressed. The staff were fantastically helpful, making suggestions as to how to get the best from the Christmas Menu, or the Table De Haute as well as the numerous choices on the A La Carte!... More
