Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Yesterday, myself and my family had Sunday lunch here and it was so nice to sit down to a proper home cooked meal just like you'd make at home. The food was superb and there was also Lots of it. Believe me you need to...be hungry when you go here for food and when you leave, you'll feel like you've been spoiled and had a quality meal which is such good value for money. We had starters which were beautiful and when the mail meals came they were of the same standard. Vegetables in abundance (8 in total) which you never see and lashings of delicious hot gravy; then on to puddings which were to the same standard. We will definitely be back for more soon.More

We visited with our family at the beginning of June. We've been here several times and this place never disappoints. The quality of the food is always fresh, home cooked (chips!) and very tasty. The service is always relaxed and friendly which puts you at...ease. The dining room is modern, clean and a pleasure to eat in. It's a little awkward village to get to but it's a hidden gem that's worth the trip. Highly recommend to all.More

The quality of food and service for our Sunday lunch was first class.Staff were professional and helpful.We both choose the beef which was cooked perfectly and this was served with two serving dishes full of fresh vegetables as well as a dish of leeks au...gratin.We had prawn cocktail for starters.When we had the bill we could not believe how reasonably priced it was.Approx £12.50 for two courses per person(don’t know the exact amount).We highly recommend this restaurant.More

As we usually go out for a Sunday carvery, our usual restaurant/pub was fully booked so we looked for somewhere fairly local and The Shepherds popped up with some lovely reviews. The pub itself is very nice and clean with friendly staff and a nice...atmosphere. However, we were disappointed when served the meals. The meat was already plated with a small amount of very watery gravy, one roast potato and a small piece or roast parsnip, the vegetables came in separate small dishes to share and one gravy boat. Nowhere near enough for 4 meals, one being a childs meal, we had to ask for more mashed potato and another jug of gravy. Then we noticed another table with 2 diners had the same amount of veg as us, a group of 4.!! We were disappointed with the Sunday lunch, however, we may return one day for a midweek meal as the menu did looked very nice.More

We wanted to give ourselves a treat as we had a stressful day. We have read previous reviews as we had never visited before. Far exceeded our expectations, we were geeeted with a friendly smile and welcome and offered to take our drinks from the...bar. We were shown to our lovely table by the window. We looked at the menu and there was a specials board to choose from. Wonderful choice especially the vegetarian options. The spiced pumpkin soup was a delight beautifully spiced and the largest prawn cocktail I have seen in my life. We chose the vegetable masala and the chicken in a brandy sauce for our mains. We were asked what kind of potatoes and I was offered home made chips and mash (different take on half and half). The tastiest meal I have had in a very long time, I couldn’t finish mine so was offered a doggy bag. We were too full to sample the desserts so opted for fruit tea. We had our teas and were surprised to have homemade shortbread biscuits to accompany the tea. We will definitely be returning soon hopefully to try the Sunday lunch.Thank you all for a wonderful evening the service and friendliness shown to us was exceptional.More

We were delighted to be the first guests to take their dog to the Shepherds as they have just allowed them to accompany you there . We were welcomed and had a lovely meal of a a beef stew with sloe gin/ delicious on a...wet and windy night . Wide selection on the menu and reasonably priced .
