Now, this one wants to be it all: a bistro, a pub, a sports bar, a diner, a restaurant… The one-stop place, in the center of it all, in Sutton, for all the hikers, skiers and so on…! We know that location is everything and it is hard to discuss the location of this one: why, it is NUMBER ONE: on the main street too! (You may have guessed it, if you didn’t know it already: they are located in the Sutton village that is surrounded by mountains and lakes – pittoresque, je vous le dis! Mais quand même…)
On a hiking trip, we arrived there exhausted and were told that they didn’t expect to see anyone anytime soon – that ‘s nice…! You see, it had been raining that day (which didn’t discourage the hiking-maniacs and nature-lovers that we all are, in our little group there…) so we persevered and only gave in and headed for the PUB here when we were really soaked up! Once there, we wanted what anyone in the area would call ”un p’tit remontant” – and they were actually out of brandy! Qu’à cela ne tienne… the pub was well-stacked with cognac and so we had that, in our tea! Next up: grab a bite! We look at their menu (which we practically had to beg for, oddly enough…?) and nothing jumps at us as a ”must try” – except, maybe, the sweet potato fries…?
There was something else funny about that menu: the French side lists some chicken dish as ”amélioré” – upgraded and enhanced, in other words. On the English side, it is not the same dish but the one listed below it -some hamburger steak- that is clearly listed as ”upgraded” – what gives?!? We were so in doubt (and the waitress so, ah, shall we say all over the place?) that we simply ordered salads for everyone! Personally, the spicy salad hit the spot just fine – coupled with those sweet potato fries, remember them? A cold lager on top of it all, and I was satiated – at long last! But there was no intent whatsoever on our part to inquire about possible desserts… All in all: reasonable prices, no offuscation if we forget to tip (but, fear not, we did tip!) – service ”courtois” as they say – ”sans plus” though; unless you’re a regular patron of the sports bar section, which comes complete with its little gambling machines, pool table and giant screen!
