Tried this place due to a recommendation & it didn't disappoint the first time. Pate to start was lovely, however my wife's prawn cocktail whilst ok, was served with brown bread, she hates brown bread. Main course for me was shepherds rest pie which was excellent, unlike the vegetables that were served with it. My wife enjoyed a fish dish... More

Myself and my family booked into the Shepherds for a Christmas treat and preordered from a Christmas set menu. There was a great selection to chose from and the food itself was delicious. There were 5 of us in total and we all left very satisfied, full and merry. The 4 courses were gorgeous and offered a good range of... More

Took my family here for my mums birthday in December. The fish bouillabaisse was the stand out starter, closely followed by the Greek salad. The chilli prawns were tasty but not a patch on the fish bouillabaisse- I felt a little cheated watch Catherine enjoy this starter as I glumly ate my spicy prawns. Mains were excellent as usual. The... More

We returned here after quite a long time. The menu choice is exceptional and very good value. The portion size is massive, so make sure your hungry. The meals were well cooked with great presentation. The standards of the service you get is also excellent. It won't be long before we are back.

Eight of us came for an enjoyable meal on Christmas Eve, however we left extremely disappointed and frustrated by the length of time we had to wait for our food. After giving it the benefit of the doubt following previous similar experiences, we will not be returning. We were booked in at 7.30pm yet we did not receive our starters... More

Dear Sir/Madam I would sincerely like to apologise for your experience on Christmas Eve and the long wait that your party had to endure. Unfortunately, it was one of those circumstances where things accumulated and by the time it got to your Christmas Booking we were inevitably unprepared. Whilst I do not like to make excuses, we had a staff... More

The service was very poor tonight, had to ask Simone to take my order and then still had to wait. The food was not as good as it has been in the past
