Lovely local pub. Extremely popular with local foodies but also welcoming to those just wanting a quick couple of drinks

“Still delivering excellent value and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

You will get good honest food here, with staff that are friendly and helpful. Its the third year we have visited this area and the Shoulder of Mutton has never failed to deliver excellent food and service every year. One of the nicest touches is that on several meals you can have a smaller portion which suited my mother in law down to the ground. If you are feeling hungry then the fish and chips is a must + the batter is light and tasty. Will be back next year.

“Good Pub Grub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

Visited for a meal this week as we were staying nearby. We also popped in several times for drinks during the week. The staff are friendly and welcoming.
The food was very good. I had steak pie and chips and hubby had steak and chips. Both were freshly cooked and very tasty. The pie had loads of meat and very tasty gravy. The steak was excellent quality from a local butcher. The prices were reasonable too.
If we are ever in the area again we will return.

“Good honest pub food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

was staying close by and fancied something different - set out for the shoulder of mutton - a little surprised as it has the appearance on the web as somewhere that could be a bit of a gastropub. Arrived and found a fairly simple & small menu of basic British pub favorites. The food was well cooked and there was plenty of it all served by very attentive staff, the cost was reasonable too. Probably my fault for not doing my research properly but it was not what you'd describe as a special night out, just a trip down the pub for a bite to eat. If that's all you're looking for then you'll not go wrong - if you've got something to celebrate then I suggest you may do better elsewhere.
