About
We are a small, family run business established a few years ago. We offer good quality, freshly prepared, home cooked food in an industry which is now dominated by ‘chain’ offers. We do not have any ‘bought in’ dishes on our menu. We cook and prepare all our own hams, pates and terrines on the premises. Our desserts have never seen the inside of a frozen food van. Nothing on the menu is a ‘boil in the bag’ ready meal. We think, (we’re not sure) that we’re the only pub business in the local area that actually makes their own chips. They start the morning as potatoes and are hand cut every day – Maris Piper for preference. We source our produce where possible from local suppliers, some of whom

Love the "Butlers". Food is always fresh, locally sourced & delicious . Combine this with great beers & real ales, it's perfect for me. Quirky decor & atmosphere also makes it a top place to eat & drink in Sutton.

Haven’t been here for a while so was really looking forward to lunch today. Felt like the portions were a bit small to what we’ve usually had before. Also you used to get a complimentary bread board but not anymore which is fine but when...More

Yes I should think it would be fine, might be a slight risk if it's very new and very expensive, I wouldn't think twice about leaving my wife's a3 and collecting it in the morning
