“Always good food, always busy and just that bit different”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Been here a few times in the last few years but months apart. The difference is they may have the odd kangaroo steak on the menu or catfish instead of cod. Makes it a bit quirky which I really like. Anyway, went last week and we only just managed to get a table. Tip, always book!! The food was lovely, (gammon this time) the staff great and with a few real ales to choose from, the night was complete. Don't expect to come here and pay a fiver for a burger though; this aint no Wetherspoon rubbish. A main dish is a minimum of a tenner at least. It's worth waiting for and worth paying. Starters are great as well. I'll make the effort to get there a bit more often. Enjoy!

“Good pub food”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Excellent value meals from a freshly prepared 2 for 1 menu, available mid-week at this time of year. Many items listed were described as home made and our dishes all seemed freshly prepared. The availability of a couple of real ales added to the evening's enjoyment. Attentive and friendly staff.

“Not cheap but worth every penny”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Went to the Shilton arms on a whim and had a very enjoyable experience and the bonus was they had a two for one offer on at the time . We have been back since and paid full price but the quality of the food compensates for the extra cost. My wife is happy that she can get gammon without egg or pineapple without having to ask for something different on her meal. Well worth a visit.
