The Shepherd (formerly Shepherd and Dog), is a family friendly Bar and Restaurant situated in the pretty village of Langham, 5 minutes drive from North Colchester, conveniently just off the A12. The atmosphere is as warm and inviting as the decor. It maintains its charm as a traditional village pub where people can wander in with walking boots and dogs to enjoy good company as well as fine ales, wine and food. We hope you will choose to visit the Shepherd at Langham where our happy team of local staff look forward to getting to know you. We are open all day from 11am serving lunch and dinner.
