As a semi regular customer in this restaurant I am extremely disappointed by the lunch time service we received today. The service was incredibly slow and unfriendly. We had been there a few minutes short of an hour when the waiter took away our STARTER plates and asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu. We told him we... More

It was on my walk to and from work, so I had breakfast and dinner there due to extortionate cost of food @ Holiday inn. Over 60's menu very limited. Open for breakfast from 06.30 which is good for business people.

Waited a long while for out order to be taken despite the fact nobody else was waiting to order. Once order was eventually taken, we waited another long while for our food to come. Personally my meal, the carbonara from the specials board, was absolutely lovely and accompanied by delicious fries. My sister and father were not as happy with... More

Poor quality food and service, grubby surroundings and a lack of attention to general housekeeping. Took my elderly mother ther for lunch recently. A return visit after many months. Now I remember why I won't be in a hurry to go back again.

I've been an advocate of The Shepherds Rest for the past few years and don't hesitate to recommend it above other local restaurants as it's normally brilliant but tonight was just awful! I was starving and the steak pie always hits the spot but tonight the mash was chewy and dry, veg hard and dry, not what I've become use... More

Cannot comment on food, as after waiting for half an hour for someone to take our order, we got up and walked out. Really annoying as a couple who came in after us was asked for their order before us. I mentioned this to the waiter and we got an apology - but it came too late. Hardly any table... More

Making lots of great changes and the food and service was excellent. Could not fault it. The special's looked very appetising and a great variety of options. Staff friendly and welcoming. Will be back. Well done!
