I had already sworn not to go back to this pub as I'd had such a bad experience before. However, my Nan booked a table for a Christmas get together so I had to go back, hoping they might redeem themselves. Hah! Not a chance. There were only 5 of us and we had pre ordered our meals over a... More

This visit was very special to us as dad not being well, we wanted to get the family together. You gave us such a great evening. The place was very busy. The manager informed us that we might experience a delay on our table, and to be fair, not a single table or chair was available tonight. However our meal... More

Came for a work lunch pre-Christmas. Positives: A really lovely building in a nice area with nice little separate rooms/eating areas. Arrived at 12 nice and early so it wouldn't be busy (and it wasn't) but service was slow for our single course, not enough time to stay for pudding! Food is very average: Fish pie average with vegetables so... More

I've now had a couple of meals at the Shoulder of Mutton, the latest being from the Christmas Festive menu. It was really lovely, three courses for just over £20 is pretty cheap in Buckinghamshire! The main course was slow cooked beef and I had such a generous portion that some went home for the dog! Delicious and well cooked... More

Am really really disappointed in this place! We are local and if I'm honest we did have reservations about popping in on our way home today as we have had service problems there before. This time though we didn't even get as far as service! Went in at about 5.55pm and could see most of the tables in main restaurant... More

Went here as a works Christmas lunch. Cutlery and crockery was all dirty, had to ask for it to be replaced. Food was average at best, nothing special and didn't set your tastebuds alight. Service was okay. Layout and general atmosphere felt like it was worn and could do with some tlc. Overall wouldn't come back or recomend.

Here for xmas meal with family saturday evening. Only festive decoration on the table was a cracker. Meal served on cold plates so got cold very quickly. We had eaten most of it before cranberry sauce arrived. Then a problem with the bill being larger than it should have been. Very disappointed.

One of our party (of 4) could not have her choice of main dish, and we had to wait a long time for our starters which were ok but not excellent. the main dishes were quite good but not brilliant. We found the service slow and a bit vague in a way. I know the restaurant was moderately busy but... More
