Lovely Lunch

We came here for the first time as a family to entertain a visitor from Germany. Lovely sunny garden, welcoming pub and attentive, friendly service for a light lunch, drinks and coffee at very reasonable prices, thank you!

Set in a rural quiet village, there is an extensive menu including tasty home made pies, lovely surroundings and excellent food and the staff were very welcoming. I will certainly go back again.

We live in the next village and as I walked past the Shoulder of Mutton with our dog, I noticed this once run down pub had been transformed - it's now a really lovely gastro style pub - really nicely renovated, a good short menu with tasty food, a great selection of beers, wines and drinks, fabulous service, what more...

We arrived at 12:30 in order to give the dogs a decent walk so they would sleep through lunch - they did. We decided to take our good friends somewhere different and there is nothing better than a country pub which is so dog friendly that they make more friends than we did. Now to the important bit - we... More

Very disappointed. Just returned from having Sunday lunch at the Shoulder of Mutton. First time we have tried the restaurant. The decor was lovely with a friendly atmosphere. Starters were nice and were served shortly after ordering. The mains were served, and were told the veggies were on their way. We waited several minutes, by which point the food was... More

Georgina and Philip have been running the pub for a few months now and they brought this pub back to life. They know what they are doing. They know it's first and foremost a country pub where locals will come regularly as long as the ale is good, the place is warm, comfortable and clean, the prices are right and... More

This was not a planned trip, we discovered this lovely charming pub restaurant by chance, but how glad we did. In our party there were 4 very hungry adults and a small 6 month old baby. We thought we would be too late to eat but the wonderful staff went out of there way to make sure we were comfortable... More
