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.
Service was excellent and the atmosphere very good. We enjoyed our vegetarian dishes, although we found them slightly on the expensive side - maybe because it was Sunday lunch?
Was very busy but everything was great
Tasty food and lovely atmosphere. Super busy as it was a nice day so had to wait a while at the bar each time but the staff were friendly.
Cracking roast - great pub
We loved our family gathering . How ever we ate in the barn and it was very hot !! Our only moan !! Otherwise it was absolutely lovely . Bar staff extremely polite and all very organised .
Service was ok, i appreciate it was a very busy time but sometimes a smile would be good, it did feel a little like we were being shipped in and shipped out as quickly as possible. Also having worked in the pub / restaurant trade in the past when a customer asks which ales you have on the reply from our host "lots" is not very helpful and some would say rather rude. The food though was excellent!!
Wonderful meal a real gem at the foot of the downs, will return that’s for sure.
Lovely situation, excellent friendly staff but although the food was good the menu was limited and quite expensive ie 16.50 for a burger. Also £19 for a house wine is extortionate. Ian used to dining at Cote and The Ivy so am used to paying higher prices for my meals. I hope you find my comments constructive. PS I am not ‘Dear Faulder ‘ but Dear MR Faulder !
Lovely little local pub with great selection of food cooked to a high very high standard. Really good service by the staff, probably the most professional I have seen. They were attentive to all customers almost immediately without being in the way all the time. Would highly recommend and will be back yet again.
Great food as always. However the fillet steak wasn't available, & a lovely rib eye was served instead, but I feel serving it at the same price as the fillet was a little much. Service was good but seemed a little over stretched?
Great country pub, location, food and service. Always delivers an excellent experience
When I’ve eaten here in the past the food and ambiance has been really special. Unfortunately on this occasion neither were true. The roast was fairly underwhelming, we were hurried by the waitress (despite arriving on time for our booking) and the table was left sticky from the previous sitting. A bit of a let-down unfortunately.
A birthday lunch which was booked in advance. It was a busy Sunday, we were repeatedly told we only had the table for two hours, yet the service was poor, we had to repeatedly ask for extras and the food was slow so we were rushed. At the end we were asked if we wanted dessert and coffee, which we did, but then we were moved to another table (as our sitting was over) which made everything complicated. The coffees my friends ordered were undrinkable and another never arrived. Overall a very expensive lunch and not a great experience.
We was seated in the conservatory area which seems like a bit of a walk through from outside which was ok but noticeable. Maybe some music to create a better atmosphere. However the service and food was fantastic and we will be back!!
We had a fantastic Roast Beef lunch. My wife’s diary allergy was not a problem to accommodate and the sorbets to finish were delicious. The service was extremely friendly and attentive. We will definitely return and recommend to all.
Overcrowded table in a very hot and stuffy room without much ventilation. Rude staff, made errors to our order, food was average and then overcharged us. Nice for a walk and drink in the beer garden but wouldn’t recommend it for a Sunday lunch.
Can't wait to visit again!
Such a great little pub, really good food and service.
Lovely pub and great atmosphere, would like to bring my daughters to pub. A little expensive for a family of five.
Very disappointed. The chicken and avocado sandwich was not good value, the avocado was very thinly spread. We ordered extra bacon which came as an afterthought when we reminded the waitress. The sandwich was very meagre so we ordered side French fries. The toilets are disgusting, dirty, broken seats and a health hazard....check out the dirty grout round the basins. This is a pub living on its reputation, it is unduly precocious and I won’t be returning.
Nice quality lunch, not overly expensive, friendly and efficient staff. Just right.
An excellent meal for a Father’s Day family meal. We will be back.
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.
Roasts and sticky toffee pudding are happiness on a plate - thank you chef
