Sutton’s is a nod to the past industrial might of Kensington and the hardworking people that have always lived here. The Sutton family, who came to Philadelphia from England in the late 1700’s as shipbuilders, eventually opened the successful foundry and iron works known as Franklin Iron Works.
Inspired by the story of a hardworking family that became an integral part of the neighborhood, owner Niall Murphy created Sutton’s; a space that embraces the people and roots of the 5th Street corridor that once housed the workings of breweries, textile, woolen, lamp and hat factories; A space where people come together and enjoy homemade food and a good drink with their friends and neighbors.
Sutton’s 20-person outdoor seating area is open. Reservations are recommended with a 6-person limit on each party. Sutton’s will not be accepting reservations later than 9:30 PM.
