“Mother's Day lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Enjoyed a lovely Mothers Day lunch at The Shoulder. It is the first visit for many a year. The food was excellent quality and the special menu had so much to choose from. Quite a number in our party had the roast beef, which was magnificent. It was cooked to order and no one was disappointed.
If I had just one negative comment to make, the food could have been a little warmer for me, but as I didn't mention it at the time, I only have myself to blame! The staff were very polite and attentive.
Would recommend you give it a try if you are in the area.

“My birthday celebrations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

I booked a party of 17 for a meal into the shoulder to celebrate my 30th birthday party and was very very pleased with the sort of service we recieved in booking my meal, confirming a pre order of the meals, very well set out table and where our table was located as it felt like our own little private party! The staff couldn't do enough and the wait time was acceptable given the size of our party and the pub was busy with other customers too! Thank you to all the staff for making my party a memorable one!

“Beautiful food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

We've been to the Shoulder a few times now, and it never disappoints. It's not the cheapest food you'll find, but you will struggle to find food as nice as this in the area. Simple pub grub this is not. The menu offers a great choice of meat, fish & vegetarian options. All of which are superbly presented & certainly the ones we've tried, taste great. The staff are always friendly and the decor is very clean & stylish. My only tiny negative comment... Sometimes we've been and the place has been very quiet/empty, but maybe we just picked a quiet day?

Overall this is an excellent place to find top quality food.

Very well furnished, excellent staff and superb food - we loved it.
