Great atmosphere and great choice of beer - its like a beer festival every day with so much choice. Dog friendly pub which is a bonus as we have a puppy. Cant wait to try the food.

I'm not sure I need add to wow! The beer, food and service were superb. This is by far the best place to eat in Wantage and well priced; quite simply brilliant. Cannot wait until the next time. Bring it on.

I've been coming to the Shoulder of Mutton for about a year now, but last night was the first time for a meal. The vegetarian food is incredible, meat lovers should not be put off by this place.

I went to the Shoulder of Mutton for my wife's birthday celebrations and we had a fantastic evening. Amazing food in generous quantities, fine local ales and a very warm reception. We will definitely be going back.

We came here for my birthday and had such a fantastic time. The food was delicious and plentiful and as always Peter was very accommodating. The ale selection was brilliant. My only regret is that I'll have to wait a whole year to have my birthday there again! 5 stars. You won't be disappointed!

You will always be assured of a warm and friendly greeting from Peter. Peter has created a drinkers' paradise in Wantage, an ever changing selection of excellent quality real ale is always available and the beer festivals have now become a thing of legend in Wantage. A complete refit has now led to some high quality food being served in... More

The landlord, Peter, has an imaginative menu - this is not the obligatory vegetarian choice of a meat-eating pub, but a full vegetarian menu, home cooked, and even I, who am not a fan of hot and spicy food, enjoyed every mouthful. The pub itself is quirky and genuine, with interesting real ale selection. A little courtyard garden allows a... More

We were excited to find somewhere that offers a decent vegetarian selection, with real ales to boot. Had we not read about this place we probably wouldn't have found this little gem. We were greeted with the warmest welcome we have had in a long time and the landlord could not have been more accommodating. The locals were happy to... More

A great local vegetarian Resturant. The food was freshly cooked, well seasoned and piping hot. I ordered the curry, which could have fed a small army. The portions are large! Very pleasant staff. Highly recommend.
