Found this pub entirely by chance, but my advice to you is to check it out before it gets too well known. The veggie option was simple but fresh & well presented, and the chicken ham & stilton pie was first class. Frequently a pie like this would be very salty. Not so. And, not presented in the almost-ubiquitous porcelain... More

Having made a few phone calls to various of our favourite places to eat with no joy in getting a table we decided to have a drive out. We had been to the Shoulder for drinks before but had never eaten there. We were given a warm welcome. My husband ordered the sunday lunch - they only had beef on... More

We visited today for the first time with friends. Lovely setting, nice and airy pub, very nicely decorated. We all had a main course & pudding plus drinks and we couldn't find fault with anything even if we tried. First class. We will be recommending this place and returning ourselves for sure!

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
