Absolutely superb evening meal at this pub. Lamb cutlets were a joy according to my wife. I had the steak and kidney pudding and it was fabulous. Spotlessly clean and very attentive staff. Definitely recommended for a visit.

Arrived at 9pm and was still warmly welcomed and served lovely food. Steaks very tasty with a lovely Stilton sauce. The chips are always amazing here.

I have visited the Shoulder of Mutton in Stretton on Dunsmore a few times with my wife for meals and used it as a stop off for refreshments while on bike rides (we live in a nearby village). The pub is well kept and the food is what you would expect from a village/country pub. It pub is well kept... More

My husband took me for a midweek evening meal out and as we had been here several times before and lately had had some bad meals elsewhere and felt safe going to the shoulder of mutton and its only down the road. Lovely welcome as usual and sat in the lovely dining area. I don t usually have a starter... More

Hi. I am sorry to hear you were disappointed at your last visit. I apologise for the bruschetta every now and again we run out of things and substitute the nearest we have, this is however no excuse. The salad as clearly stated on our menu is mixed leaf and tomato, it is therefore very difficult for us to meet... More

The Shoulder of Mutton is a warm, inviting country pub with amazing food! Mark and Carol create such a lovely atmosphere which makes you feel right at home as soon as you walk through the door. We have always had delicious meals and never been disappointed; I would like to recommend one dish but they are all amazing! Best steak... More

We went to this pub for my birthday as a group of 4 adults and 1 child. The owners are lovely & welcoming, service was quick & all the adults had 3 courses. As I'd been a chef for many years and also started in this very pub 15 years ago it's good to see they've got it so right.... More

Having just been on a muddy walk, a group of us decided on the spur of the moment to visit this pub for lunch and what a lovely surprise it was. They didn't flinch at seven of us turning up unannounced; the decor is modern and fresh and the staff were friendly and welcoming. I won't go into each individual... More

This is a very pretty pub, simply decorated inside and offering the warmest of welcomes. The food is good pub fare at a reasonable price. I greatly enjoyed my starter - a grilled goat's cheese salad with crispy bacon - and the pudding was a bread and butter pudding worthy of a 5 star restaurant. Sadly my main course, chicken... More

We just had a family dinner there and it was fabulous! Friendly welcoming owners and staff who were attentive without being intrusive. The food was fab - my husband and brother in law had the pie was they agreed was excellent. I am veggie and can totally recommend the mushroom stroganoff. We had a 6 year old and two year... More

First visit today. Nice clean pub, with a good atmosphere. Had a look at the menu, the starters didn't really appeal to either of us, but we both had a mains each. Service was quick and efficient , but we did feel that the lady serving was being polite rather than friendly. Meals were good and nice portion sizes, no... More

I often wonder if people like you who write reviews are aware of the way in which their reviews reflect on themselves? We didn't fancy the starters. The beers were boring. The wine ok. I feel you have highlighted what you considered to be the negatives but been unable to highlight the positives of the food. The day you came... More
