I must admit to always going for their early doors specials. They have added a new £6 main to their £9 for 2. When we visited this included duck leg with Cointreau sauce and pheasant hot pot. Excellent chips and nice veg included. Plus bottle of wine for £6 - absolutely excellent and outstanding value. And always a good cask... More

Overpriced for something I do better at home. Steak had more gristle than meat, chips were raw and everything else was greasy. Wasn't offered any kind of discount after complaining. Absolute crap

This is an overstatement to say it was 'Absolute crap'. I went to your table on your occasion whilst you were half way through your meals where your wife smiled and said everything was fine. My female colleague working that night also checked on you twice. You had both eaten and cleaned your plates although yes, there was some fat... More

We have been several times for the basic lunch.There is an excellent choice and great variety in the menu. It makes a very pleasant change from the usual carvery with overcooked veg. Hard to find value for money like this. Well done all!

Ok but seems to lack the wow factor. Starters were nice enough. I had the mixed seafood lightly battered but struggled to tell the difference between the types of seafood. All a little over cooked. Wife had bacon and goat cheese tartlet which was basically a lump of melted cheese on half a slice of fried bread. The cheese was... More

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.

Thank Patward46
