Review of Sutton-on-the-Forest by Nicky Seymour on March 11th, 2007
I grew up in Sutton over 40 years ago and remember it with great affection. I've just got home from a four day break in York and of course spent an afternoon in my favourite village. It has been 25 years since I was there last and, apart from a couple of new properties on Main Street and the school having been extended, nothing has changed. I wanted to knock on doors and say "Hello, I'm back!" But it was all so peaceful I just quietly left with my memories.
Review of Sutton-on-the-Forest by Julia Smart on October 2nd, 2006
wonderful little village! we stayed at the Blackwell Ox Inn as we couldn't find any decent accomadation in York. We warmed to the idea of using Sutton on the Forest as our base for our weekend in York, so much so in fact that we never left the village! Two wonderful little pubs in one village; the Rose & Crown which had a decent seafood menu and lovely surroundings, but the jewel of the village has to be the pub where we stayed, the Blackwell Ox. Wonderful food & lovely staff, and the accomadation was an unexpected treat for a countryside pub. Sutton park was a delight and had an excellent tea room. we shall certainly return here, and maybe pop into York next time!
