This was my first visit since leaving Todmorden 23 years ago. What a joy to enter the Shepherds Rest to find it almost as I remember. The 2 bars and main restaurant in the same place(not modernised). I had a coffee and stood at the bar where the Monday club of which I was a member used to drink. A... More

The welcome was great but unfortunately the food did not match. I had a salad that alleged to come with pesto drizzle, sun-dried toms and olives. What actually came was half a jar of pesto dumped on a poor excuse for a salad (unless you really, really like onion), no toms or olives, these were provided when I pointed out... More

We visited with our two daughters... hubby had a burger and eldest daughter had a kids meal. Both were fine if not outstanding. My meal however... I ordered the beef stroganoff which I've had many times up the road at the Top Brink (now that's always outstanding!). Chips and rice were nice large portions, stroganoff came in a separate bowl...... More

The pub is very friendly with a relaxed family atmosphere, the views are stunning and the beer garden and playground are fantastic. The menu is large but largely uninspiring. I choose a haloumi salad from the specials to start, it was a generous portion and quiet tasty but swimming in oil. My main, also from the specials was a sizzling... More

We love coming to the Shepherd's; birthdays, Sunday dinners; anniversaries... it's unapologetically pub grub, but done very well with incredibly generous portions. The pies are to die for, the chips are awesome and the children's chicken nuggets are really tasty. My one complaint is that I never have room for dessert (well, apart from one occasion). The staff are all... More

Went to this pub today for Father's Day and ordered steak and ale pie, only to find half way through eating, not just one long hair but two, which I had pulled from the inside of the pie, and one ended up in my mouth which I had to pull out. In horror I dropped what was on my fork... More

we are really sorry about the hair in your pie, and we cannot understand how it got there,especially as it was entwined in a piece of meat, we are now asking our suppliers to look into this for us. we do hope that you will return to us in the near future, More

My wife and I dined at this restaurant yesterday (Saturday) evening and had a very enjoyable meal. Starters of fish goujons were delicious, and the main courses of lamb for my wife and steak and ale pie for myself were mouth watering! We were not rushed, in fact the service throughout was friendly and relaxed. We will certainly be returning... More
