Gastro Pub
Situated in the village of Great Shefford, The Great Shefford is a privately owned public house with a riverside terrace, a wood-burning fire, a seasonally-inspired menu, an elegant restaurant (with a private-dining annexe), a great wine list, and an excellent range of spirits (gins in particular).

The pub is managed by the team behind King Charles Tavern in Newbury and The Broad Face Abingdon. Led by Joshua Khan, Georgiana Caras (General Manager) and Kevin Mulraney (Head Chef), our aim is to offer a friendly and relaxed environment where everybody is welcome.

As this is the Valley of the Racehorse, we’ve set aside a special area of welcome for those who want to keep their eyes on events on the turf in our dedicated Racing Lounge, with wide-screen TV and up-to-date editions of the sporting press.

We are open seven days a week, from morning through to late evening, serving lunch and dinner as well as simpler food offerings such as bar snacks and sandwiches.

Background Music was a little loud.
The food was very good, though the starter of goats cheese mousse was over salted.
Service was very good.
Would recommend it as a place to dine with friends.
