Good pub lunch and good service

The shoulder of mutton is a popular pub/restaurant in the lovely town of wendover. It is next to the local railway station and has plenty of car parking space. Food is served on lunch and dinner menus and is a mix of pub grub and decent courses as well as puddings and hot drinks. Plenty of draught... read more

Have eaten here many times over many years but sadly over the past couple of years when have tried food has been bad, this occasion I fortunately used a Tesco voucher or would have requested a refund as still cant believe the poor quality of a Jacket potato that was advertised as being with beans and cheese. Well in fairness... More

Visited for Saturday lunch. We waited ages to even receive a menu, then a further wait for drinks to arrive. The food quality was good, but the terrible service made for a poor experience.

Having recently had a terrible experience at a nearby Chef and Brewer I thought I'd give them one last chance. The reviews on here didn't look promising but as this restaurant was handy for all 6 in the party I gave it a try. The restaurant is an impressive building, easy to find with ample parking. Our table was ready... More

This used to be a lovely country pub restaurant, but when it was first taken over by the present chain it went down hill fast. Stopped going after a couple of times as was not enjoyable. Recently (Jan 2015) visited with friends and was pleasantly surprised. It's now a very nice place to go for a meal or drink, the... More

Went as a celebratory reunion with a party of 15. Even though ordered from menu over one month in advance, the restaurant had run out of one the choices. At my end of the table, the risotto was not cooked properly and a further dish of rice had to be supplied, the prawns were completely tasteless and one of the... More

Called in here after a walk - to check it out before making a Group booking. Lovely (light) lunch, friendly helpful staff and good service. The only teeny criticism I would make is that they have adopted the horrible, but increasingly common, habit of damping paper napkins before they wrap the around cutlery - it may make it easier for...
