This country pub is in an outstanding location, situated high above Todmorden on the Lumbutts Road. The Pennine Bridleway National Trail is on the opposite side of road, and from here you can walk up over the brow of the hill to reach Gaddings Dam , an unexpected reservoir perched on top of a hill, with reputedly the highest beach...

There are few better places to be sat for lunch, with the countryside stretched out in front of you. The food was great too, excellent rag pudding and gravy. We even got brought extra chips, which were just too much to polish off. Staff very welcoming too.

We were taken for dinner by a couple of friends who are regulars and live local to the Shepherds rest . A pint of well kept Jennings was a good start swiftly followed by another to accompany a steak and mushroom pie. This was beyond doubt one of the best pies I have eaten (after my wife's steak & kidney... More

Yet another very good country pub with wonderful views from the dinning room. The food and service was very good. It was great to see Jennings ales on sale away from Cumbria. Will go again.

The Shepherds Rest has been our local for some years and we have had some fantastic evenings there. Always a warm welcome and excellent food. A party I held there this weekend was super the staff efficient and the cocktails just amazing. I have a local b&b and always guide my guests to dine there. Patricia Taylor Two Hoots Cottage

I have being visiting the shepherds rest for years but up until last week only to drink as its one of the few places in town where the beer is always excellent, I assume because it is so well kept.

We eat here quite regularly because the food is so good but tonight I have had one of the best meals I have ever had anywhere. The haunch of venison from the specials menu was superb.
