It's all change at The Sitwell Arms!

CHASE Magazine's, Joe Cawthorn, paid a visit to the refurbished Sitwell Arms. Take a look at what he thought.

Its often the little things that make a restaurant what it is.

Of course the food is the main reason, but the decoration, the service and the overall atmosphere and ambience really make or break the experience.

Luckily, the new owners at The Sitwell Arms in Whiston have taken all of these things into account.

The quirky décor and bespoke artwork really do give the restaurant area a bespoke feel, while the paint job on the exterior modernises the whole building, giving it a high dose of kerb appeal.

Inside, little touches show the attention to detail, such as the cutlery holders on each table, the real ale colour testers besides the pumps and the urban pizza counter.

We don’t want to give too much away, you’ll have to make a trip for yourselves and notice the

little quirky details, but it’s a massive thumbs up from the Chase team on the refurbishment front.

But what about the food?

Well, you’ll be happy to know that it matched the high standards of the décor.

My partner and I shared a portion of light, crispy chicken strips for starters that was accompanied with a zesty barbecue sauce and a fresh side salad, a truly delightful starter.

For the main we were both in the mood for a tasty burger.

I opted for the tower burger; a juicy beef burger and a zingy southern fried chicken burger topped with bacon and cheese served with a side portion of sweet potato fries.

The burger had to be deconstructed to handle, as it was so big and packed with favour.

My partner built her own burger which consisted of a grilled chicken burger, a southern fried chicken burger, cheese and jalapenos in a brioche bun.

Again she had sweet potato fries on the side and commented how delicious it all was.

A special mention goes to the pizza counter, where if there is too much to eat in one sitting, they provide a handy take out box so you don’t waste any, bravo.

Overall, the menu and the atmosphere scored very highly with me and my partner and the modern feel of the menu and the surroundings is a far cry from what the Sitwell Arms once was.

Pay it a visit, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
