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.
Best pub in West Sussex for a Sunday lunch! We always bring our families from Scotland & Yorkshire when they come to visit.
Great beer and great food as always at S&D. Service is always great despite being a busy pub!
Very accommodating with our changes of numbers. Lovely food. Think you should ask visitors to at least attempt to clean their boots!
For the service we felt the staff were really attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and accurate, but because it was very busy they were a bit stretched. We walked from Steyning over truleigh hill, what a fantastic pub. We have been frequenting the pub regularly over Christmas and it has always been really amazing. Food and drink is a four because one can always imagine better even though it was great. Value for money was a four but we changed it to five because we thought the beer was a bit expensive but then the amazing whiskey cheese board seemed really good value and a cared for balance and unique, the port was nice too and good value. Thanks a lot and we are very lucky to have this pub near us.
Been here a few times for a Sunday roast and has always been amazing but came here a few Fridays ago and had the nicest meal I think I have ever had! Was unreal!!!
I was completely surprised and disappointed on this visit. I have been many times to your restaurant and enjoyed both the food and ambiance. On this occasion the food was inedible and took nearly an hour to produce. As one of my guests and I had only ordered Ham, egg and chips I was surprised at the delay in producing such a simple meal. When it arrived the salad was squashed on to the plate which was covered with oven chops and two over cooked eggs. So I was very dissapointed The staff gave us a 50😖% discount which really was not the point of our lunch. This is written more in sorrow than in anger and I can only hope that things will be back to normal very soon.
Hello, Thank you for your feedback. We experienced some problems with our internet on the day you visited so the kitchen didn't receive your order, for which we can only sincerely apologise. We had hoped we had made it up to you sufficiently on the day but this was obviously not the case, I'm so sorry you left feeling so unimpressed. If you'd like to discuss this further please contact me directly - [email protected] Kind regards, Lauren Restaurant Manager
Give Chloe from Toronto a raise. A charming and attentive waitress (if I may use the feminine ending). Smoothly dealt with the situation when we were informed at least 30 minutes after ordering that two of our meals weren't available (offering a free drink), Even volunteered to take a group pic (which came out ok). The initial welcome wasn't so good from under-pressure staff. Best described as matter-of-fact - although one was snappy - rather than warm and welcoming. My alternative veggie option was delicious and imaginative if ever so slightly cold. Downlands Bitter more than merely sup-able. Not as expensive as feared judging from the £100 Christmas dinner price We were politely hassled to clear off "in 15 minutes'' at about 3.45 as others were waiting even though our food arrived later than anticipated.
As ever, a lovely lunch was had at The Shepherd and Dog. Great service and delightful roast!
We have been a few times and do love the pub. Generally I think the food is very good, but my gnocchi this time was not brilliant - a bit stodgy and something a bit too acidic in the apple salad maybe that just didn't quite work for me. But my daughter loved her fish and chips and chocolate pud! Thanks
We love the food here and have never had a bad meal! On our latest visit, we brought friends visiting from Malaysia who thoroughly enjoyed their meal, the ales and the fanatastic, friendly service from our waitress. Thank you again!
Christmas lunch menu good, for 4; starters and mains were of good quality, mains were over generously portioned. Deserts lacked finesse. In the 2 deserts ordered the fondant texture was slightly undercooked and the creme brûlée slighly curdled and again slightly over portioned. Overall it is pub food with a good effort for the occasion.
We’ve been coming here for lunch on Christmas Eve for five years now and always have such a lovely time. Amazing atmosphere, service and food. The classiest waitresses too!
A big thank you to all the staff, from the booking to the afternoon on Christmas Eve was excellent and a special thank you to the chef for making us a different vege meal, all the food was delicious. A big pat on the back to everyone. The Graimes family. Ps Jess 5 said she loved seeing Father Christmas and being invited to do pass the parcel. Happy New year to you all. Rosie & David Graimes
Lovely place. Great location great food and drink Everything we wanted from a country pub experience and very dog friendly
Loved our lunch, many thanks
It was simply perfect we meet friends who we hadn’t seen for 10 months. We could talk to them easily yet the atmosphere was cosy. Food delicious. Service great- an all round thank you
The setting, food and drink are absolutely perfect even for a large group. We did have to wait quite a while to be seated even though our table was booked but that really is the only negative comment I could make. The sunday roast is by far one of the best we have ever had (and for 14 people to say that it must be true!). What a wonderful way to finish of a country walk. Thanks again.
Superb food and great selection of beers!
all our guests were very pleased with the food & service, so of course we are happy with the success of our party.
We were a party of 6. Service was quick And friendly. I love the choice of different Ales on offer. The roast beef I had was by far the best roast dinner I have had in a restaurant. We will be returning and telling our friends and family
The best roast lamb I've had in a long time. Great selection of beers. Friendly staff. Beautiful location and building. Perfect.
Amazing Sunday roast. Very friendly staff. Highly recommended.
Great food, great pub
The food and atmosphere was really nice, although everyone's Roast Potatoes were under cooked in the middle. There were hard bits of raw potato in the centre.
Amazing food lovely country pub and friendly staff. Looking forward to visiting again.
