Food and Drink

Great food, not the run-of-the-mill. Service and wine list compliment the food. It’s really worth shouting about. Forget the chains, this place deserves to be for every night! Try it!

5 stars is not enough to express how much I love this venue. I have been to the Shoulder of Mutton several times for dinners or lunch and had a great experience every time, which is why I keep coming back. The servers are always lovely and the food is top-notch.

The Shoulder of Mutton was recommended to us by several people for a family gathering after a funeral, and they weren’t wrong. The ‘limited’ menu offered to larger groups was way more than adequate, considering we included fussy vegetarians, are vegan, and my own severe food allergy. The owners and staff were wonderful and the food was absolutely delicious. I look forward to returning- maybe for the famous Sunday lunch – in happier circumstances.

Unpretentious pub with charming wait staff and delicious food. As we split two dishes in sequence, they plated it out for each of us without asking.

Wendy and Alan provided a memorable party for myself and 24 family members. They made wonderful food and gave excellent, friendly service. Everything was perfect, I can’t praise them highly enough. Many thanks, Wendy and Alan.

One of the best Sunday roasts I’ve had in years. All the food tasted home-cooked. Lovely cuts of meat and vegetables that retained their texture. Staff were really friendly and service was excellent. Can’t recommend highly enough.

A lovely pub. I regularly visit this pub for a lunchtime meal. The food is high-end, tasty, fairly priced and very well presented. The staff are very welcoming and attentive.

Outstanding food! I had the duck and Sarah had the mutton. Food of the highest order, all freshly cooked. I also enjoyed a couple of pints of the local beer from Loddon Brewery and Sarah enjoyed the Pressé. We will definitely be returning.

GOLDEN wedding anniversary

We had a wonderful Golden Wedding Anniversary party. Thank you for making our celebration so special.

this delightful pub, tucked away from the main drag, offered wonderful surprises. Inside is a very clean pub for tasteful indoor dining. Both the shoulder of mutton and roast pork dishes were divine. Save room for dessert as they are fabulous! The service was excellent and prices very reasonable for the quality of food.

We had the pleasure of the Shoulder Of Mutton Pub hosting our Child’s christening reception. Brilliant place for a reception or party, especially if you want something personal like we did. Would rate you guys 10+ if we could. Thank You honestly so much for a wonderful day and for accommodating us all.

We had my mum’s wake here after her funeral and they were lovely and welcoming and provided an excellent buffet with a brilliant vegetarian and gluten-free selection of things. Really nice on ambience – both old school English pub and new, very light and spacious conservatory.

I have so many good things to say about this restaurant, but I will end with this. The Shoulder Of Mutton Pub has always been one of my favourite restaurants in the area and it is even more so now. I thoroughly recommend it to everyone I know and, if you’re reading this, to you as well.
