We have visited this resteraunt several times up until 1 year ago and we're very happy with the food and service. Our recent visit was dissapointing as the standards had dropped. We both had the steak and ale pie which was small cubes of chewy beef in a very salty gravy and no taste of ale. It was served in...

We have just had a truly wonderful family party - we were thoroughly spoiled by Jake Tyler and the team . the food and service were second to none. We are never disappointed but my family were bowled over by the whole experience. I would thoroughly recommend it to anybody.

It is now called Coco at The Shoulder now as it has changed hands and been bought by a chain based in Chesterfield. The pub has been pretty much taken over as a restaurant with a small bar and has been glammed up a little from the traditional pub it once was. I spent a couple of months here whilst...

My friends and I were over the moon when we found out the shoulder was under new ownership. The old owner was totally inexperienced and it showed. He ran this wonderful place into the ground. But as soon as we found out he'd gone we came and it was lovely, new owners new atmosphere and finally some great food. I...
