Raymond's Bar & Eatery in Sutton Bridge provide a delicious Sunday lunch
If you’re looking to enjoy a delicious Sunday lunch while sitting back in a relaxing atmosphere, look no further than Raymond’s Bar & Eatery.
Situated inside the cosy Sutton Bridge Golf Club, my girlfriend Orlagh and I were treated to some excellent service throughout our visit.
Scouring the menu while sipping on our ice-cold drinks, we pondered as to whether or not we should indulge in a starter.
We ultimately chose against it, but had we a little extra space there would have been a prawn cocktail, soup of the day and pate to choose from.
Instead, we dove right into our main courses; I ordered the roast chicken lunch, while my Orlagh went for the roast topside of beef.
It’s fair to say that (as you can see in the pictures) we weren’t left disappointed. The portion sizes were very generous, packed with everything you could want.
The chicken was lovely, and wasn’t too filling despite its reasonable size. Luckily I’d skipped breakfast to leave some room.
Filling up the plate were some gorgeous roast potatoes and a brilliant Yorkshire pudding – you can’t go wrong with that.
The real highlight for me, however, was the inclusion of stuffing – my personal favourite.
It added some extra fire power to the meal, and naturally I made sure to save a bite of it until last.
A sharing bowl of vegetables brought a touch of green, orange and red.
Carrots, Brussels sprouts and red cabbage made up the selection, and all were excellently cooked.
Discontent with our decision to skip a starter, we made up for it by asking for the dessert menu. A wise choice.
I was treated to a succulent sticky toffee pudding, loyally accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
It was brilliant, with the warm cake contrasting nicely with its cool companion.
Orlagh tucked into a big serving of apple crumble and custard, and while her appetite wasn’t quite as long-lasting as mine, she still enjoyed what she could manage.
Other desert options included a lemon cheesecake and cherry pie, while vegetarians could be catered for at the main course stage with a suitable sausage roast dinner.
We enjoyed a look out at the golf course while we ate, taking in what was a lovely afternoon while we were fed and watered.
The restaurant itself is very cosy, with an old-fashioned aura making us feel right at home.
A great range of beers were on offer at the bar, and on another day I could have been tempted. Unfortunately I was driving and had my sensible hat on.
All in all, we had a brilliant afternoon at Raymond’s Bar & Eatery. It’s easy to find, and our server was very friendly.
We’ll definitely be back in the future.
