user reviews of the Shoulder of Mutton, Aldham

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Traditional weather boarded country pub in Aldham, rather than Fordham which is close by. The pub is split into two traditional bars; the right hand bar seems more for diners. It seems Thursday night is curry night. We noticed the sign near to the road advertising the fact to late to try it. Three hand pumps on Thursdays visit; Kentís Best, Master Brew and Spitfire. As the pub is owned by Shepherd Neame there are no guests available. I am not sure they were not prepared for the group of about ten of us that arrived. The beer seemed to be either £2.70 or £2.80 depending on strength. As it was a lovely evening we took our beers outside to the lovely beer garden. They have a large beer garden with either seats in the shaded tree area or in the sun, if you are lucky enough to see it.

Dropped in one early Saturday evening. Didn't like it. I'm not a fan of Shepps' beer and the Spitfire (which I do quite like) wasn't on anyway. Nice old building in a lovely setting but the internal layout wasn't very warming so I'll be giving it a miss in future. Go over the bridge to the Queen's Head instead.

I help out at a kid's camp down the road from this place, the landlord has a reputation as not being 'outsider' friendly. His loss, we spend our hard-earned at the superior queen's a few doors up!

A delightful 16th century pub, owned by Ridleys Brewers. Good beer, good food, great atmosphere, no juke box, no smoking bar, no yobs.
