Don't be put off by past controversy. The food here is top notch! 100 items on the menu means lots of choices available for all. The decor is a bit old fashioned and you will get a shock when you go into the women's toilets (it's a bit wacky) All in all a strange quirky little place with great food!... More

My husband and I fetched up one evening, tired and hungry at 'The Sutton Arms'. We were just in time for one of their special offers - a cooked meal 'Two for £10.' which - we foolishly thought would not be up to much! How very wrong we were! The food is amazing! A rather long wait - but you... More

Decided to give this one a try so dropped in with my wife about 1pm yesterday for a meal and a pint. We were presented with the biggest Yorkshire puddings, (with beef and veg), we had ever seen. For the first time in years we failed to finish the "course." And only a fiver each! Great pub. Full of character.... More

The food was plentiful & tasty, though we were drastically overcharged (meals should have been from the lunchtime menu but charged from the a la carte menu for some reason, we raised this and got refunded) no vegetarian options from the children's menu.

What an amazing little place, got recommended by a family member to try it, what can I say, absolutely outstanding, the service was amazing and the food was the best I've had! It's an old fashion pub inside and you can feel the history it has as soon as you walk in, it's even got the old fashioned feel and... More

What a surprise, a bit of a hidden gem, Set in the Elton Village, The owner has decorated this public house with a multitude of artefacts, quite historic, not your usual run of the mill public house. It has various rooms for private functions, wonderful private restaurant too for weddings and all. There is not many, if any public houses... More

Came here for steak on Sunday night. Both me and my girlfriend were both shocked with how big the menu was huge. I had the garlic mushrooms for starters and my girlfriend had mussels. She really enjoyed hers whereas I didn't as it tasted like it had been warmed up. I had a T-bone steak for my main and my... More
