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.
We thoroughly enjoyed your inventive delicious food. The whole meal was as delight and so totally unexpected! The only reason I gave 4 stars for service is because one of the waitresses was very sullen, non smiling and not particularly friendsly.
Our waitress was lovely and the food was piping hot and delicious
Friendly booking made over the phone. Roast dinners for all of our group were very tasty. Chocolate fondant too scrummy but managed to share some of it!
Great Sunday lunch!
As good as its reputation.
Weeping felt that the food was underwhelming, and expensive, considering other venues around offering good food at more reasonable pricing. However the pub has a good atmosphere and lovely location.
We came yesterday for lunch and the food was absolutely faultless. I had the chowder which was delicious and stocked full of fish / seafood and the bread was (chargrilled?) which made it extra tasty. My husband had the chorizo and red onions (divine) and the pulled lamb sandwich which just melted in the mouth. A couple of weeks ago we had a dreadful meal at a pub local to us and were compelled to complain it was so awful so our experience with you yesterday restored our faith in eating locally (local-ish - we're in Hassocks). You are now going to be our go-to pub when we want to eat out just us or to take family and friends too. Service was also very friendly and the pub and garden are great. Thank you :-)
All the staff were really friendly and accommodati g, we had an additional guest and the maitre de had to rearrange a table booking for us, she was gracious in the face of manic a Sunday lunch crowd, thank you! We were impressed with the meal, and will surely return, thank you again
Lovely staff, fine dining and great family lunch - well done all at the pub :—)
Fabulous Sunday roast, it has become our go to pub for a roast. The produce is always top quality, and stupidly tasty. Almost every staff member is willing to go above and beyond, great all rounder.
Bloody brilliant service for our party of 9 :-)
Excellent food great pub good quality roast
The service was excellent, extremely slick and professional but also delivered in a lovely friendly manner. The food was amazing. The roast beef and all the trimmings quite simply were the best I’ve enjoyed at a restaurant/pub. The beef melted in my mouth and all the flavours with the vegetables and gravy were delicious. I rarely leave feedback but am happy to do it on this occasion as I think the whole experience was exceptional.
Lovely pub, friendly staff, amazing food & great selection of beers. Go for a long walk and have some food after!
Excellent food, as always
Would be good to have a drinks menu including the guest beers on tab in the restaurant areas.
Really not a great experience. Order was wrong. Ended up paying for the wrong order which was dearer too - couldn’t be bothered to try and get someone over as service was so poor. Had to ask twice for extra gravy. Meat was cold. Vegetables were nice although parsnips were hard and cold. Really gone downhill.
I have been visiting this pub for years and it's almost always fantastic....great food, great drinks, great place...
Atmosphere as usual was pleasant and the servers were quick and diligent. I had the lamb roast which was exceptional although i would have appreciated a few more greens. I also asked for a side of parsnips but these were missed at first, They did eventually arrive and the staff automatically deducted them from the bill. My girlfriend had no complaints about her meal although she did say she would've liked some chicken or turkey rather than the beef or lamb offered. Desert was delicious with the pastry on the crumble noteworthy and my cheesecake was light and refreshing. The base of the cheesecake wasn't exactly biscuit but was still enjoyable.
Amazing lunch. Very accommodating of our needs. We'll be back.
Very good food. It was recommended to us and it lived up to expectations. I’d definitely come back. Thank you 😊.
Great country pub and the best roast in Sussex! Have already re-booked!
The staff were lovely but I had specifically booked a quiet table in the corner as my daughter is deaf and uses hearing aids. When we arrived the table had been given to someone else as the waitress hadn’t read the notes. Consequently we had to wait quite a while.
Fantastic time as usual on a Friday afternoon. Such good food and drinks. All the family had a really enjoyable time. I'd recommend it highly but I don't want it too busy ;)
Probably my favourite pub at the moment and I go to a lot of pubs. Brilliant food, staff and venue. Amazing drink choice.
