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

Food arrived promptly, I had deep fried Brie, very nice, the other starter was a Prawn cocktail, it was full of prawns.... More
