Another busy night at the Rusty Cutter and Will was our waiter, does he ever have a day off; always there when we visit. a couple of errors with our main meal, but they were sorted out with no issues and promptly resolved. when it...eventually got around to us choosing a dessert we were torn beteen the apple pie or the key lime pie, Will steps in with his recommendation of the key lime pie and he wasnt wrong a very nice refreshing dessert. now the evening is coming to an end with 4 very satisfied customers. while Wil was clearing our table he over herd us talking about that it was my sister inlaws birthday, about 10 minutes later Will returns with a birthday card and a box of chocolates which was an unexpected and pleasant supprise. Thank you beefeater for an excellent end to the eveningMore

We booked a family meal for a birthday. There were 14 of us, 4 of whom were children under 10. We arrived and unfortunately the staff were dealing with a medical emergency in the area we were due to sit. Our server Will was amazing...from start to finish. We were very quickly shown to a newly laid table. Will was so attentive and helpful. He even took some lovely photos of us all as well on request, even though he was busy and even joined in sing8ng Happybirthday!. Nothing was too much trouble. Well done and thank you Will for making the day so special.More

Came here for a joint 80th/14th family celebration and Will the waiter was a fantastic host from start to finish. It was a large party but he still made sure every individual was catered for and looked after us all. Nice touch from the restaurant...for a special card and gift for our Nan. Would definitely recommend!More

Wonderful meal and service at the rusty cutter. There was a nice surprise with the new menu, of which there were plenty of options to keep the whole family happy. We were served by Will who made sure we were all well looked after, kept...the drinks flowing and ensured we were all well fed. It definitely won’t be our last visit to the Rusty Cutter.More

Took my disabled mum out today and she chose to visit the rusty cutter. What a lovely team you have. We were sat at a nice table and served by Tina, who was brilliant with us. My mum doesn't have a large appetite so only...wanted a starter and this was no issue. The restaurant was busy but at no point did we feel it was crowded or we were forgotten about. The food was delicious and was presented well.More

Travelling through the area and staying at the premier Inn nearby. Had a meal voucher that came with the hotel. Arrived at 6pm today with my girlfriend. Lisa was out hostess. She was very polite,informative and always checked that everything was alright and we had...enough drinks. The food was great too. Had the double crunch wings and the breaded mushrooms for starters and then the mixed grill and the house stack burger for mains. Was very filling. Would visit again when traveling this way xxMore
