Firstly we came into the pub and ordered a drink and asked for a table for two. There are only 4 x 4 seater tables and one 2 x seater table. This initially looked lovely and cosy, however, my husbands chair backed into the chair behind him and the waitress couldnt get through without him getting up so was constantly... More

Very informal dinner on a Monday evening, we sat in the bar area and ordered at the bar. Staff were really friendly and the food was lovely.

We visited the pub after a not so impressive stay at Horwood House. We were the only people in the pub - but the owner and their family stayed open late just for the two of us to have some awesome drinks and talk with the barkeep. Unfortunately didn't have time for food, but if we're in the area again... More

We have dined twice after the restaurant had a new chef in August and on both occasions the food was splendid - much more than a country pub restaurant. Beautifully presented, generous fresh portions, perfectly cooked. Its still early days but the service is more enthusiastic than effective - will bed in fine I have no doubt as the new... More

We were looking for a family / dog friendly pub that served good home made food - and we'd thought this might be it. Trip Advisor reviews were good - BUT - I can only imagine there must have been a mix up. First up - I must say the service by the staff was fine, they were polite and... More

Wow what a wonderful discovery this was. Sometimes you happen upon a real gem of a pub and tonight was one of those occasions. A friendly welcome and immediate service. Such a great menu, something for everyone. The food was delicious, good size portions fresh and flavoursome. Do do do go to this pub if you can.

We booked a table for a Saturday evening, not having visited The Shoulder of Mutton before we did not know what to expect. We were greeted warmly by the owner who made us feel welcome. We were shown to our table and ordered drinks, the menu had something for most peoples tastes. I chose the 10oz sirloin steak and have... More

We were made extremely welcome by the owner and felt immediately comfortable. The service was friendly and efficient, My wife and son had the sirloin steaks and remarked that the quality was the best they have ever had. Real Ales of excellent quality and a good bar scene where locals drink without having to eat a rarity these days.

Wow, what a great little pub! Their real ale is kept extremely well, the Hooky was fabulous. The menu is a bit on the simple side, but the quality of the food more than makes up for it. I had the enchiladas which were yummy and it's good to see something a bit different on a pub menu for a... More

Looking for somewhere different to go and enjoy a summers evening with the dog, found this place on a doggies welcome site. Just off the A421 and easy to find, had a lovely walk in the near surroundings of the pub, and settled in the garden on a picnic bench where 'open mike' night was being set up. Prices a... More
