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.
Came here for Sunday roast and it was absolutely delicious , the best roast dinner I have had in any pub.
from a customer experience point of view, if we have to stick to a 2 hour hour slot, we really should expect for the order to be taken soonest so as to maximise the enjoyment of the 2 hours. My experience on a couple of occasions was that the wait was too long for the food to be on the table (last time over 40 minutes) which makes one conscious of the time left to have a relaxing meal. Understand your computer went down on Sunday, but aside from that it is often fairly stressful wondering whether you can fit the meal in in the time given. Never any time left for dessert.
We had a brilliant time, friendly, patient, helpful staff although they were very busy nothing was too much trouble. Food was good, except for the vegetarian filo basket which was unappetising and didn't eat much of it. They even found a birthday candle for the dessert.
The staff coped amazingly considering it was busy and such a hot day
Lovely service. Amazing bavette steak. Enjoyed it all.
The Shepherd & Dog is one of my favourite pubs in Sussex. Friendly, welcoming, polite, attentive but not intrusive staff. I had a lovely birthday meal! Loved the candle in my pudding! :) I had the delicious Aromatic Fevertree tonic served in a lovely glass- which is so nice as I don’t drink alcohol so I appreciated the effort made. Faultless hospitality. Beautiful setting. THANK YOU!
Would have been nice to know about the garden bbq via the website having never been before this was our only port of research h
Any comments or feedback
Always great food and service. Only bad thing was so many flies in restaurant. But apart from that was lovely.
Busy staff, but friendly and welcoming. couple of mistakes on the order (wrong pudding for kid) but easily fixed. Table not well cleared- left lots of cutlery/ used napkins etc from main even when pudding served, which felt a bit messy. Really fantastic roast lunch with incredible vegetables. Shame the door to barn could not be opened to allow movement from restaurant to garden on hot day. Pudding (apple crumble tart) was disappointing- dry and nowhere near as good as main course.
Delicious food, exceptional service and gorgeous surroundings. Family had flown in from around Italy and across the UK for a first communion celebration. You made a special day into a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Thank you to all of you. One suggestion: the extension room is very hot in the sun. Maybe a fan would help?
Good quality food and relaxed atmosphere
Great atmosphere and food, it’s a busy place so booking is essential.
My mum remembered visiting the pup years ago, and wanted to take us there, as she had good memories from there. We were not disappointed, the staff were very friendly, and helpful, and the food was good. Lovely sitting on the terrace having lunch and watching the world go by
Great place to go, even if busy staff is friendly and helpful and the food is delicious!
Everything was great apart from the orange juices which were watered down to the point of being tasteless.
Excellent friendly service and very tasty food. So many pubs have half cremated meat but this was lovely and pink
I'm giving five stars here because that is as high as they go. We were very demanding and wanted everything to be just so for our Wedding Lunch. Emily, Jasmine and Lydia were all amazing, they sorted everything for our lunch of 17 people. We had three vegetarians, one gluten free and several very hungry guys, the menu suited everyone. The private room was perfect for our party but could easily have held more. We wanted one large table and it was great.
Fantastic pub with possibly the best pub garden in the world and an excellent selection of beers and very good food.
I was a guest so can’t comment on th price, but this is a gem of a place tucked away at the end of the village. Perfect place for a meet up with friends!
Delighted they’re serve both a veg AND vegan option for their Sunday roasts... but it is expensive at £16... plus if you want, say, parsnips, that is another £4. That said, the food was really good but you get a timed slot to eat and it is a pub not a restaurant. They are responding to demand and charging accordingly (it’s always busy!) which is fair enough. But my job is to point this out as a review 😎
The food is never disappointing, I'm a gluten free non meat eater, always accommodated with delicious food
Lovely pub and nice atmos. Food is generally very good but the place falls down on service. Your staff are lovely and all very polite and friendly, but it doesn't make up for forgotten starters and forgetting to call me back and confirm my reservation (your internet was down), which would have meant a wasted journey for me if I hadn't called to check on my booking as it hadn't been made.
