When we got our table we chose off a very nice varied menu, and our food was delivered quickly with polite and professional... read more

I have been to The Shepherds Rest on numerous occasions and every time, I have had an amazing meal. The food is home made and delicious. Especially the rag puddings ( you get two!!!) Lovely views around the restaurant, and an outdoor play area or the children. The staff are really friendly and very welcoming. Would definitely recommend.

Used to go to the Shepherds rest a lot when the children were young due to the excellent play facilities. The youngest is now almost 21. We called in last night on the off chance as neither of us wanted to cook. What an absolutely wonderful experience. The food was excellent and reasonable priced. The atmosphere was wonderfully relaxing and... More

This is a great pub full of character, quality food and an excellent selection of drinks. We visited over the weekend and had a really enjoyable time. The food quality was excellent and the presentation matched. We would certainly recommend this pub to all as it caters for everyone.

I was out for a drive with my mother and wife and stumbled across this place. Lovely decor, great views, attentive staff, quick service, good value and very very nice food, I can recommend the Stroganoff, Shepherd's Pie and the Balti Curry, along with fantastic home made chips.

The establishment is lovely looking inside and out, clean and warm with an amazing view from the back over the hills. Menu is a bit fussy and some items are rather expensive but we have been here a few times and tend to always have the mixed grill. If you are in a rush however do not order this as... More

We had a lovely meal sat at a table by the window overlooking the valley. It was a quiet Friday lunchtime with only 3 other tables occupied so can't judge what it would be like on a busy day. There is a large selection on the menu, I had Lamb which was excellent and my Dad said it was the... More
