Had a day out and wanted food on the way home, so called in here. They have a good 3 course menu that is very good value for money and have a few choices for the starters, mains and desserts. A must is the Old Tin Roof dessert. Very scrummy.

Always manage to try something different as plenty of choice and the kids meals are fantastic. Would always recommend this place to anyone, quirky little pub with great staff and great... More

Visited recently for lunch with the Family and was pretty impressed. The building is really quirky, with lots of strategically placed tat all about complementing an interesting internal decor - not actually my thing, but my wife thought it was great! Food wise, the staff appeared with children's meal menus very quickly - these offered plenty of choice and were... More

It's a while since we have been to the Sutton Arms, and on our recent visit (a Saturday evening) it was a lot quieter than we remembered. I know that the Sutton Arms has had a difficult time lately, so maybe this is why it was reasonably quiet, but we found the whole evening as good as we ever remembered... More

Great place for a cosy meal, great prices and good solid pub grub as well as a-la-carte style stuff too. Awesome Sunday dinners of epic proportions for the hungry diner...
