Change of Management (again)

Cant say I was over impressed with the attitude of the new manager, he made us feel that he could take or leave our custom!! Food was okay but nothing to shout about. Wont be a frequent visitor but may give it another try.

I am unsure to what has happened to this place. I now live in Manchester however my family and many of my friends live in or near Wendover. We decided on the Shoulder of Mutton despite of a recent bad experience however put this down to a one off ( I was wrong on the one off). We ordered a... More

Myself and my friend visited this place for the first time on Sunday after making a trip out to the countryside from London, the rationale being that this was the only pub in Wendover that I could remeber that did food. I have to say the overall experience was a big disapointment, we were greeted at the bar area by... More

Not the finest place to eat in Wendover, but reasonably priced and ok. Waiter was very pleasant, drinks and food arrived promptly. 2 lunches were fine, the other (a pulled pork baguette) had to be sent back as it was cold, but it was no trouble for them. I don't think I'd go here if I was celebrating anything, but... More

Lunch reservation for 4 made for first bank holiday monday of May '15. Quite chaotic on arrival but seated within a reasonable time scale and waiter was polite and friendly. We ordered, we waited, we waited and we waited some more. When we thought we had waited enough, we waited some more! After an hour we prompted the staff and... More

Visited on the bank holiday Monday - it was packed, which is to be expected and we were told that the wait on food would be 45 minutes when we arrived. It was a nice day and the pub setting was lovely so we didn't mind the wait at all. The Menu has a lot of choice, we were all... More

We visited as a family group. The children were given colouring sheets and crayons to keep them busy while we ordered. Choice on the menu was good and the childrens' menu gave a wider choice than usual. Food is not Michelin rosette standard but was hot, well cooked and good value. Two courses for £12 in the week. The staff... More

I have visited The Shoulder Of Mutton in Wendover , for dinner with my Husband, twice in the last 2 months. On our first visit, in February, we were welcomed by friendly staff and our meal was actually pretty good as pub food goes. Everything we chose was tasty, and well cooked with great service throughout. However, sadly, on our... More
