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

From the moment you step in to the moment you leave this place is special. Even with some young waitresses working on a busy Saturday night the service was spot on. They have been taught well. On a cold evening we sat in front of a roaring fire and had a glass on champagne (and scrummy garlic bread!) couldn't resist.... More

I have eaten at Scutchers several times now and think it is easily one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. A very thoughtful menu with exceptionally fresh food where the chefs have not comprised on the best ingredients. The food is always delicious. Also the staff are incredibly professional but friendly and attentive without being over-bearing. Lots... More

Definitely the best restaurant around with superb food and lovely, friendly service. Whenever we have a special occasion we head there as you can be sure it will be just right. This week his special touch was 'posh' fish and chips, turbot in tempura batter was divine. You can't find better and we will be back soon.

This is our favourite place to eat. The food is excellent - no froth, blobs or smears here which seems to be the fashion in many other restaurants. The menu is innovative, all food is freshly prepared, well presented and delicious. The restaurant is spotlessly clean, stylish and comfortable. One can have drinks beforehand by a lovely inglenook fireplace. The... More

Our favourite restaurant in the area. Nick and Diane bend over backwards to please their customers, and always succeed. Lovely food, wine and atmosphere. Long may they carry on. Going again soon-can't wait!

We go to Scutchers about 4 or 5 times a year and it is our place to go more special occasions. Nick and Diane go to so much trouble to make our visits special and the food, and wine is amazing. Thank you, and see you soon
