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...

We have been here a few times now and have been very impressed on each occasion. The value for money on the early bird special is almost too good to be true! I have put cheap eats as the price option but the food itself is not cheap quality, the portion sizes are good and the service is excellent. Adam... More

Sitting in their garden after having a gorgeous Lamb dinner with a huuuge Yorkshire pudding and minted gravy, food was just like my mother use to make and the service was very nice, hats off to the staff for making our random visit worth while. The wife and I will definitely be back 😋
