We visited the Shepherd's Rest at lunch time on a miserable day and thought it was wonderful. The food was exceptional and such generous portions. Then menu is also quite extensive so there are lots of lovely things to choose from. The staff were very welcoming and we couldn't believe how reasonable our bill was! This pub is perfect for...

Myself and 8 others went to the shepherd's rest Inn to celebrate my brother and dad's birthdays. It was a wet and windy Monday but that didn't dampen the mood. The fires were blazing and there was a lovely cosy atmosphere. Some of us ordered from the set menu and It was delicious and great value for money with 3... More

Came here Jan 2017. Glad we booked it was quite busy. Good cooked food. Not cheap meat. Good portions which is always a plus. Service is very friendly and welcoming. Their staff are a credit to the owners. Atmosphere and decor very good. Keep it up. I will be back 👌🏻

Came here in in January 2017, Was very busy, so glad we pre booked. However it was well worth the wait. Staff were great and food was outstanding. will definitely eat at the Shepherd's Rest Inn again. Not a cheap place to eat. but worth a visit.

Really good food, very friendly staff, service spot on. Just look at what they brought us! Lovely gammon steak and a broccoli leek and Stilton pie. Worth a visit, great views from the dining room. Walk up to Gaddings Dam when weather is decent. Or shelter from rain!

Perched high above the valley with astonishing views, this gorgeous pub serves terrific home cooked food from a diverse menu. Service can be a little slow at busy times but is always polite and friendly. Perfect place to stop off for food after a walk to Stoodley Pike.

Tried this place due to a recommendation & it didn't disappoint the first time. Pate to start was lovely, however my wife's prawn cocktail whilst ok, was served with brown bread, she hates brown bread. Main course for me was shepherds rest pie which was excellent, unlike the vegetables that were served with it. My wife enjoyed a fish dish... More

Myself and my family booked into the Shepherds for a Christmas treat and preordered from a Christmas set menu. There was a great selection to chose from and the food itself was delicious. There were 5 of us in total and we all left very satisfied, full and merry. The 4 courses were gorgeous and offered a good range of... More
