We come here occasionally for lunch. The food and service are always excellent and the staff always welcoming. It's great for us as it is "dog friendly". It has got rather shabby over the past few years - inside and outside could do with a bit of a spruce up. However the garden is lovely to sit in when the weather is good and has a nice rural feel about it. We will be back again.

My husband and I used to go to the S of M many years ago and did a revist some 30 years later.What a disappointment. Some people would say rustic NO its run down and falling apart
broken chairs in the garden took us 15 mins to find a chair which was safe to sit on. Inside - Very scruffy and unkept - food was good. only two choices of real ale. Extremely disappointing Garden was a mess all overgrown and overall this place needs TLC Pictures on the web site are of years ago its not like the web site. Nothing for families to do.This pub seemed to be a water hole for cyclist.

Spontaneously went here for lunch, what a great choice, quite a few menus to choose from, maybe too many!! but food and presentation excellent , worth every penny, Garden lovely just need the better weather!!
if I would say anything then it would be, get lighter curtains than the dark blue ones, maybe sort out the windows so they open, as I notice quite a few blue bottle flies hanging around!! but Great little pub

I don't normally write reviews but felt compelled to write after the lovely evening we spent in the Shoulder of Mutton. We visited on Friday night which is clearly locals night as there was a big gang at the bar all who obviously knew each other. We always think this is a good sign if the locals use the pub & it made for a lively welcoming atmosphere as you walked in. We were shown to our table & our drinks quickly arrived. I chose the steak & kidney pie which was absolutely fabulous as was my husband's pasta dish. The pub interior is a little dated, but the food & atmosphere were first rate. Sam the lady behind the bar, was very friendly & attentive & would be a credit to any pub / restaurant. She raced around from table to table making sure all the customers were looked after whilst also serving all the drinks at the bar, incredible!
All in all a very enjoyable evening, well worth a visit. We will certainly be visiting again very soon.

Nearly didn't visit this pub going on previous reviews but so glad we did. Lovely setting, great atmosphere with a gorgeous log fire which was just what was needed in this cold weather. Staff really friendly and welcoming. The lady who works here couldn't do enough to help and was really smiley and a good laugh as well as being very good at her job juggling the demands of serving drinks and food. The food was excellent, I had the steak and pâté pie ( which was delicious ) and my husband had steak which was cooked exactly as he asked. Even tho the pub was busy we didn't have to wait long for our food or drinks. Decent selection of wine and some good real ales. Will definitely return here again especially if we have a summer, as the garden looked lovely. This is a lovely country pub with good staff, serving decent food and drink, and it doesn't try to be anything else!
