We've visited the Cutter several times and popped in today. We were told that they had just switched to their new menu yesterday. My wife has coeliac disease so has to be very careful what she eats and we were pleased to see that there...More

The welcome was just fine together with the table which offered bench style seating down one side. We decided to share a starter of whitebait which was fine, sufficient and served in a timely manner. We were a party of 8 adults and 3 children...More
