The calvery at the Sheldon Arms is fine but tonight we had a very unpleasant experience. We were seated near the fire exit in the restaurant, as we were at the same time last week. There were no problems last week so we saw no reason not to sit there again. However, since it was warmer outside, people were seated... More

Booked for a group of 24 and were accommodated no problem. Everything set up ready when we arrived and staff were really friendly and helpful when we asked for high chairs etc. Most of us had the carvery which was great apart from the parsnips which were still solid inside. Kids meals were good value and generous portions. Children enjoyed... More

A 'free from' menu is available which was great as my daughter is gluten intolerant and a vegetarian. Both covered minimum fuss!

Popped in today on a whim for a Sunday lunch. I have been many times as it is local to where I live so I have never thought to put it on trip advisor however, the staff today were all so good I thought it warranted a mention - it always adds to the experience when you are met by... More

This was the second visit to The Sheldon Arms, the first was ok but nothing worth writing about. This visit turned a corner, the pub was exactly the same as the last time we visited but the food was way better. Both times we called we had the set carvery, but the difference was like chalk and cheese. I hope... More

We used to visit the carvery but hadn't been for a while. When we called in for lunch we found that they no longer did the carvery on the afternoon any more. This is probably due to the new Ash tree farm opening. So that's where we went.

Went to the Sheldon Arms last night I had the scampi 🍤 with chunky chip and peas. It was very nice and not to much just enough. The waiter was very good at his job asked if everything was OK offered top ups on out drinks. The rest of the family had the carvery that was very nice as well.

Thank Natplatt
