We were there for an informal birthday lunch with a friend. Pleasant dining room. Very welcoming staff and good service and presentation. Interesting set lunch time menu. We surprised ourselves by having three courses. The main course of duck was cooked well but could have arrived at the table a little warmer. The vegetable selection was different but the kale needed a little more cooking. The starters and desserts were excellent. There's a good selection of wine by the glass -we had an easy to drink Merlot.
Food was great as good as anywhere I have been locally. Portion of Pie very generous. Taste was great Perfect seasoning of all food . Beautiful presentation and friendly on the ball service . So good.
Very impressive varied menu with high quality local ingredients. Friendly welcome and unhurried service. The visit of myself, my wife and son, his partner and our granddaughter was a memorable occasion and we shall return.
Food was well cooked but Piripiri flavour on poussin was none existent. Menu on internet excellent but in restaurant a4 piece of paper with about a third of the dishes on it.
The food was very good and the service was excellent. We were seated fairly near the bar area so it was a little noisier than I would have liked but equally there was a great atmosphere and I would certainly recommend The Shepherd.
Very pleasant evening. The waitress was passionate about her job and the place and keen we should enjoy our meal, which we did. Great choice of craft ales.
Delicious food, very friendly service, good garden. Very flexible in serving my son a starter which wasn’t on the usual Sunday menu. A little slow - but that’s not surprising given how busy a Sunday lunchtime it was. Will go again.
The Shepherd is my local but hopefully that does not make me bias!! All of the team are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed but caring. The food is always good with a few "specials" in addition to the main menu. There is a changing range of well kept ales ( typically three) and of course lagers etc.. The wine list is good as well. This is a good place to try. Quite easy to get to. So.......good food, good beer, friendly and competent staff, contemporary layout....... what's not to like !!!
Our visit to The Shepherd was a very enjoyable experience from the welcome we received, the friendly service the attention to detail and the high quality, tasty and innovative food .
Beautiful country pub Suitable for all occasions!
Excellent food & service, would highly recommend, will be returning! Live music good
Lovely atmosphere, the food and the service was fantastic. Dogs are welcome and they are child friendly.
Attractive presentation of delicious food, interesting menu, friendly and courteous staff making extra effort, very pleasant interior design
Slow service even though pub was quiet. Fish pie OK but under-seasoned. Bangers & mash had 2 large lumps of hard, inedible potato. Complaint not dealt with properly. Can't think of a reason to go back.
I'd heard good things about this place, but overall we were not terribly impressed. The service was good but the food was (in our view) overpriced and not particularly good. We had the Sunday roast.
Every thing about the Shepherd is fabulous from its decor,friendliness to its food. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough love the place.
Great pub - dog friendly! Attentive staff and very good food!
I liked the decor and relaxed feel of the place. The staff were really attentive and helpful. We had enough time to chat and catch up between courses and everyone's meal looked delicious.
Great food. Live music the night we were there - well done Kat! Excellent service especially Ella. Will be back
I have been to the Shepherd a few times now and each time the service has been excellent, as has the food. The staff are friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The restaurant is roomy, the tables are not crammed in top of each other so there is plenty of room. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant, I cannot fault it!
Nice pub, great staff, starters were really high standard - however the meat in the Sunday lunch was not great compared to the rest of the meal. I had turkey and my wife had pork. Both were low standard cheap cuts. Based on this I would recommend avoiding the Sunday roast and go on a different day and have the normal menu.
Almost a great pub but please just sort the roast meat out!
Dear Opentable you confirmed by booking for the restaurant and then one hour later after I’d already set off on my journey, you (yes Open table) cancelled the booking! The restaurant were horrified to hear this had happened when we turned up but being good customer service they honoured the original booking!
An excellent meal, with friendly efficient service. All this and the dog was made to feel welcome too. We will return.
A thoroughly enjoyable meal, excellent service combined with well cooked and presented food. We were so pleased with the meal that we have already returned!
My partner and I have been here a few times now and each time it has been such a wonderful and relaxed visit. If you are looking for a beautiful country pub/bistro then the shepherd is definitely worth a visit! The restaurant is beautifully decorated to suit its surroundings and the food is truly delicious and home cooked, all for great prices. The services is great and very relaxed but always happy to ensure you have a wonderful dinning experience.
After many years absence abroad we have returned to The Shepherd, and have found it to be just the right kind of place for family get togethers, the staff are friendly, efficient and the place is full of warmth and good food at reasonable prices. They have recently introduced a live performance of a young piano player who lends an ambience and which since it is a great background jazzy popular sound (not too noisy!) is perfect for diners to listen to and enjoy whilst they sit back and eat a great meal. I think since it is not too far to drive it will once again become "our place" well done to all the staff and management
We had not been to this version of The Shepherd before and we delightfully surprised. We made a last minute booking and were grateful we did as the restaurant soon filled up! We enjoyed our starter sharing a Piggy Platter but were impressed with our desserts! The Lemon Posset was very light and lemony and my Sticky Toffee pudding was a dream! We enjoyed our visit.
Been 2or 3 tines recently. Always good food with excellent service.
Definitely recommend this lovely gastro pub.Excellent food, very friendly staff.Great service
We dined on a Saturday evening when there was live music, it was brilliant!
Will be returning soon
