What a wonderful pub, the food was fantastic, the staff were helpful and friendly. The owner was engaging and sincerely interested in knowing if everything was ok. In 3 weeks they will have 3 rooms available one being dog friendly, with breakfast included.

We regularly visit The Shepherd. The service is always excellent, the food is innovative, attractively served and delicious! Not too pricey either, especially the set lunch, which is very good value for money.

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.
