At first glance after opening the doors and decending down a staircase, you wonder what awaits you at the bottom... a cute little pub overlooking the Grand River. Menu consists of typical pubs style fare, with options for everyone. Good selection of beers and ciders. Fast and friendly service in a tourist town.

I am from Scotland and just loved this place. I had a haggis dish that was served like a shepherds pie. It was as big as my head, but I managed to eat most of it (not usual for me) because it was beautiful! Great atmosphere and welcoming servers. Just loved it. Cant wait to go back!

Enter down quite a lot of stairs, pub itself is nothing special and smelt a bit from the river but service was fast and food was actually very good - large portions of fish and chips. My husband liked his pint of beer - have a few craft ales to choose from and my wine was ok - not much... More

We have stopped here for a midday lunch on three occasions and we have always been served in a friendly manner. The food is very good and very well prepared. We have had fish and chips and the burgers are excellent. You will be glad that we went down the stairs and the atmosphere is very comfortable and not at... More

Cold wet January day. Although the pub is a bit on the chilly side, warranting you keep your coat or heavy sweater close, the warmth of the people and the food makes it doable. Great beer selections and greater burgers and fries. Friendly waitstaff and general community vibe will have us returning again and again.

I have been to the Shepherd's Pub several times since moving to the area. The place is usually packed and the food good. However the last couple of times I was there the service has been really slow and the food just okay. Their beer selection has remained outstanding. On my most resent visit, we spent most of our time... More

Had a great meal of fish and chips. The apple cider was just the right temp. The bar was a bit noisy but to be expected of course. Will go again.

There is a new menu with most of the old favs, but a few new items. I had the daily sandwich special. It was very good. Loads of fries and all the condiments you wanted. I was at the bar area, alone, but had good interaction with the bar and wait staff. I never felt "alone" Good atmosphere and freiendly... More
