“A delightful country pub with superb food”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Fed up with chain pubs we chanced upon the delightful Shepherds Hut when visiting the interesting church in Ewelme. It is newly-run by an Australian couple (husband - chef never seen - too busy, and the whirlwind of a wife serving numerous tables. Just wonderful freshly cooked food: we had a superb tomato soup with herbs etc and a couscous with fresh vegetables. Clearly popular for lunch with the locals. Great country pub atmosphere. A find! Thoroughly recommended.

“Such a pleasant surprise”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

After eating in many pubs in our area and coming away disappointed, it was such a pleasant surprise to find this little gem. We went on a Saturday a couple if weeks ago with our two young children and parents. We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived. The decor was comfortable and relaxing, although the bar area was a little chilly to begin with. The food we ordered was prepared and cooked fresh to order; the fish and chips was amazing. The children's meals were of an excellent standard which makes a refreshing change to what we have become used to. All the meals were reasonably priced and very good value for money. An altogether lovely eating experience - we will definitely be going back!

“Great Food, great hosts”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Went to the "Hut" for a Christmas dinner with a group of friends. It's great to have the Hut back up to its past high standard. The Hut is a traditional village pub, it retains the atmosphere you would expect but the food is of a very good restaurant standard. There were about 18 of us and the service was exemplary, the food was out on time, hot and very efficiently served. The food tasted great and the beer was up to its usual very high standard.
Well done LInda and the Shepherds Hut team, great night had by all. Thank you
