This was my first visit to this secret wonder! If you want vegetarian, vegan, gluten or wheat free this is the place to go as the menu is entirely vegetarian with at least half of the dishes for vegan or gluten free choices. Your host is also the chef who quite literally puts his heart and soul into what he... More

We ate here last night after hearing food was being served again and we left stuffed and content! The risotto and the potato pie were amazing but the brownie was out of this world. We were really looked after and could fault nothing. Washed down with a selection of real ale it's no wonder this pub is the top place... More

If you like Vegetarian food, and real ale this is the place to go. Many pubs have lost their character with modernisation, however the shoulder of Mutton and been left substantially original. It was a Morland Pub, until the Greene King takeover, but this little place now sells the best of boutique ales. Try the landlords Betjeman Wantage Bells, its... More

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. The portions are big and incrediblely tasty- particulary the quiche and curry! The landlord Peter is very welcoming and really makes you... More

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
