Good traditional home cooked food

If you want good traditional home cooked food with fresh ingredients in a beautiful country setting then try this place. If you book in advance ask for a window seat.

We celebrated my husband's 70th birthday with 16 friends. We had been up to the restaurant prior to the event to give them a list of the starters and main courses just to help things run smoothly. We had a wonderful evening, the room was set up with banners with a lovely log fire burning, very homely. The service was... More

First visit. Nothing worse than an old inn trying to be something it's not and pandering to the trendy set with pretentious menus/decor. Thankfully the Shepherd's Rest is not one of those pubs. Everything is in keeping with what it is - an old hill country pub - without being all 'brassed out' unlike their neighbour up the road!! Set... More

Thought somebody was pulling my leg last Friday night as we drove on the moors in search of the Shepherd's Rest. The road got narrower, steeper and windier amidst the driving Yorkshire rain, it was beginning to remind me a little of the beginning of American Werewolf in London...a pub? Up here? Not in a million years. And then, ahead,... More

Still popular and nice lay out with great views and good outdoor kids facilities. Spoilt a bit by waiter obviously not focussing when ordering a drink and specifying no ice, then repeating as he didn't seem to be listening & guess what? Drink came with ice. Good selection on menu and reasonably priced - pleasant staff, would visit again, just... More
