Lovely location, great playground and my god-daughter liked the chickens nearby. Lovely inside, friendly staff, excellent menu , tasty food. Only thing that stopped me giving 5 stars is that it took over 45 minutes after ordering for food to come and it wasn't busy, if it's going to take a long time they should tell you beforehand I think....

It's been a few years since we'very visited the Shepherds Rest - the food we had was homemade and absolutely delicious (shepherds rest pie, and steak and ale pie, homemade puddings). I would definitely recommend it.

After 5 mins the waitress asked if wanted warming up! !!. After 20 mins it came back, my partner had finished his meal by now,... More

My husband and I are regular visitors to the Shepherds Rest and always enjoy the time we spend there and especially our food. The menu is innovative not your usual bog standard sausage, egg and chips, lasagne, etc., The chefs make regular changes to the specials menu. If you like pies you won't find better than the Shepherds Rest pies... More

However, today I have been left feeling very disappointed without having had the opportunity to have eaten, drank or been served anything! As it was a nice, warm sunny day, we decided to drive over from Manchester and... More

Great menu (I missed out on a tempting red snapper dish off the specials menu), and good honest food. I had steak & ale pie (plan B), my wife cheese and onion wedge, son had off the kids menu. The pies were proper pies, not a small dish of stew with a puffy slice of pastry plonked on top! The... More

Great location and amazing views! 5 of us went including our 2 year old lad and had a fantastic evening. Service was spot on and very welcoming. Great value for money and the beer was good too. Have been back several times since for lunch and drinks and would highly recommend!
