About Shepherd and Dog

The pub is split into two different dining areas. The first is the cottages which is aptly named after the building's previous use. The cottages are an intimate and cosy dining area with the original fireplace flickering away in the restaurant.

The Barn is where we keep our larger bookings on the weekends. It is a converted area which becomes very cosy on a cold Sunday in the winter with a big log burner or it is a perfect place to find shade on a summer's day.

Notoriously difficult to make a booking over the phone. Food is excellent but slightly overpriced for a pub and not enough choices on the main menu. I only eat fish and chicken and only fish and chips was available as well as two veggie options. No chicken at all or other fish options, which was disappointing.

Wonderful food in a relaxed family atmosphere. The staff were just delightful. The setting is beautiful. All in all it was a perfect visit.

Lovely meal, nice atmosphere in the cottages bit, great service on day however phone booking was not taken well and details missed, eg no card taken (as it was Fathers day they wanted it as it was busy to secure booking) name was wrong, vague on details I asked and no highchair at table as requested when we arrived. All easily, quickly and happily resolved though and a nice walk after up on to the downs.

Excellent food served in cosy surroundings. Been coming here on and off for nearly 40 years. Now living overseas, visiting here is always high on my list of priorities each return trip.

A charming pub nestled at the foot of the South Downs. The food is excellent and so is the service. We keep going back because it's always fantastic

Had 2 lovely meals here this weekend. The vegetarian roast on Sunday was lovely and made such a change to have 2 choices.

Whilst the menu was limited, the specials hit the mark - although we couldn't see them anywhere. The waitress, who was very nice, read them out. The asparagus starter was lovely, and the chateaubriand was excellent. We really enjoyed the wine, a glass of a very refreshing rose for me, and a good red for my companion. We didn't have a desert, just coffee which was very nice. I haven't been to this pub for some years, and I will be going back again. All in all a very nice evening.

We arrived early but being seated at our table was not a problem. We were looked after brilliantly by efficient and friendly staff. And of course the food was excellent.

Busy service and unfortunately mistakes were made with the serving of our food. Slightly bolshy waitress wasn’t overly bothered. I ate first (whilst sat next to the lady on the next table who’s meal I was apparently eating), and then sat waiting whilst my family ate 20 minutes later. Bill was fairly high for what was served. Would have liked more veg with my roast rather than have to pay extra on top of an already pricey roast dinner. £4.50 for parsnips is a bit of a liberty. Bill came with no allowance for the error made. The waiter did apologise, but having to pay a service charge for average service tarnished my meal somewhat.

We had a delicious roast which felt like a 'home cooked' roast. All the trimmings and lovely tender pork. Great service and setting too.

One of the best pub lunches I've had. Friendly staff, service with a smile even though they were really busy. Lovely to be able to take our four legged friend with us too!

Great food and friendly service but the kids meal was not put through and took 20 minutes after all the adults food had come to arrive. Kids seem to be secondary so recommend if you're adults only.

We are so sorry that the children's food was forgotten, I can assure you that the waitress made a one-off mistake and this by no means suggests that we do not prioritise our smaller guests. Sorry again. S and D management

Really enjoy coming to The Shepherd and Dog for food or just a drink. It is friendly, cosy, the food is delicious and it has a great atmosphere. As a bonus it has a lovely garden and amazing walks nearby. Great place to go on a date or meet with friends and family.

My gosh, I'm so surprised and saddened to read this Mia. I can only apologise sincerely that you found your waitress to be rude, it's very unusual. I can assure you I'll look into this. Kind regards, S and D management

The guys at the shepherd and dog accommodated our large birthday party, even though we had several changes to the booking in the week leading up to it. The table service was fantastic, with very attentive, and friendly staff. The food was amazing, and all our meals were out within a few minutes of each other. We had most of the options on the Sunday menu and every member of our group commented on how good the food was and how nice it tasted, with great produce and great cooking. Thanks again for the team there for making it a really special day.

It was fantastic thank you! The pub was very busy but this in no way detracted from the quality and standard of the food (which was superb!) and the excellent service. We will surely be back.

Less garlic in the vegetables would be appreciated. I feel there’s no need to suffocate lovely vegetables in garlic thereby smothering the original veggie taste. Apart from the look of cabbage, puréed carrots (were they?), beans - it all tasted of garlic. The beef was excellent, melt in the mouth, and the Yorkshire pudding and pots likewise excellent. Thank you.
