This has to be one of the best restaurants in Suffolk and there are a number of good ones. The food is always of a consistently high standard with a chaning menu. The chef (the owner) clearly has very high standards and it is always difficult to choose just what to have from such an imaginative menu. The staff are... More

We were told we must visit Scutchers restaurant. Why? The food was dreadful, the steak like leather, and the staff more interested in their celebrity diners.

Crowded car park mainly due to bad use of limited space by punters. simple non nonsense readable menu on one sheet. nice starter of crab and guacamole. fish 'stew' of well steamed/boiled fish in a tasty bisque sauce but as they hadn't met before the plate...

Scutchers is famous around these parts for good food, but this was our first visit for a birthday celebration. The building itself is traditional with oak beams but the decor is quite modern whilst maintaining a cosy feel. I had the Prawn Bisque and it was everything promised by the menu, prawn flavour aplenty with a good kick of Brandy... More

The reception was excellent we were greeted with pink champagne, and sat around an lovely open fire which was very welcoming. When we were all assembled we were shown to our reserved table, and drinks again served, wine flowed... More

Visited Scutchers after some years absence for a friend's birthday celebration. Everything was perfect. Our friend was delighted with his starter of lamb kidneys in three mustard sauce with rice. Tempura king prawns and scallops were also just the job. Three of us wanted the loin of lamb cooked differently and it was just right; the French pea and potato... More
