We asked Nick and Di to do our catering for our daughters wedding 28 Jan 17 at a Barn (with kitchen) venue close to Long Melford. We know Scutchers is very good, they came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. Not at all. N&D could not have been more helpful and accommodating in the plan and preparation. Attentive, detailed... More

So, twenty of us descended upon Scutchers for a New Year party. Proprietors, Nick and Diane, together with their friendly and efficient staff looked after us splendidly right from the start, Diane pouring the aperitifs whilst Nick was conjuring up all sorts of dishes in the kitchen. The restaurant was packed with other revellers but the service was faultless as... More

An excellent evening in a busy restaurant offering ambitious menus whilst having to cope with 2 large parties. Absolutely no drop in the usual very high standards set here. Food and service were first class.

Had lunch here and it was super. We are english people who live in France, and we ere delighted to find a great restaurant to have lunch in, whilst visiting family. The owner told us they are celebrating 25 years and it shows in their knowledge of service and just good food. I hope they don't retire!

It was our first stay in Long Melford and we were welcomed to the restaurant with a roaring fire and comfy sofa. The food, service and wine were all excellent. There were obviously a lot of regulars on a Friday night, and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. Can't wait to go back again. Thanks Di for looking after us... More

Nick and Di Barret know what they are doing. You will always guarantee the consistency of service to the food and drink. Twenty five years in the same establishment, can anyone do any better, I don't think so. Give it a go, enjoy

I went to Scutchers on Saturday night, for my fathers 65th birthday. The food, service and atmosphere were impeccable. We arrived early so we could enjoy an aperitif in front of the open fire before we sat for dinner. The service was quick and friendly, they honestly made us feel totally at home and like one of the family. The... More
