Something of a rarity these days, the Shoulder of Mutton is a genuine village pub that hasn't been spoiled by being 'bistro-ised' or turned into a plastic 'two-for-one' chain. Set in a very quiet rural location, about 5 miles from Lichfield and Rugeley, you are still well within striking distance of Alton Towers should you really need a 'fix' of the hurly-burly,
My own room was up in the eaves but, despite that, was more than spacious enough for me, and there was plenty of headroom, even though I'm six-foot plus. The others rooms I peeked into (as you do) seemed all to be similarly spacious; which is not always what you get in a building like this, which has a bit of 'character'.
I only dined there on my last night. The menu was surprisingly varied and the lasagne I chose was top notch, with generous portions. It certainly looked and tasted 'fait maison' and - dare I say it - was better than my own home-made.
