Well I love this pub! I am the landlady and it is my home. I can only imagine that if i spoke down to 'Dromdick'(!) then it was probably called for. I know most of my customers and we all get on very well together. As I do with all my long serving staff. My husband and his collegues are great chefs and deserve the highest respect. 99.9% of customers do not leave disappointed, this is why we are award winning.

No complaints about this place with good food and service provided. Two real ales and seeing this is a Greene King pub, great to see Loddon Hullabaloo is one of them (nearest pub to the Loddon brewery which sells their beer) and the beer was in fine condition. There is a pleasent beer garden too. My only complaint is that it is closed on Sunday night so can't pop down here for an end of weekend half.

Nice little boozer - just one big problem: the landlady. She seems to have forgotten her station in life. If you like being spoken down to you'll like it here.

I visited this pub for lunch today. The food was reasonably good, though a little expensive for what it was. The Loddon ale I tried was in good condition although there wasn't much choice (only a Greene King available as the alternative). Worth a try if you live in the area, but not worth making a detour if it's out of your way (unless you like mutton dishes, which it specialises in).

A real pub serving real food. We had a very pleasant Wednesday evening in The Shoulder Of Mutton. My girlfriend and I ordered sea food between the sheets and modern mutton shepherds pie which arrived in a timely manor served by a young but knowledgeable waitress . I thoroughly enjoyed my seafood lasagne and out of interest tried my girlfriends mutton pie thinking I wouldn't like it as I didn't really like lamb, at that point I was instantly converted, I never realised mutton could be so tender and tasty, well done chef.
By the time we left, the pub was full. We will definitely be making a return visit the next time we are in the area.
