The dining room is much larger and more pretty than in most pubs I've been to. Beautiful views of the hills. Food was good, especially the pies.

Shepherd's Rest is good and is consistently good! The food is fantastic, I have never had a bad meal. My favourite option is one of the delicious homemade pies or the Cumberland sausage. Portion sizes are generous and it is not expensive. They have a lot to choose from and their dessert of the week always sounds so good but... More

Having rather foolishly been persuaded to go for my first open water swim at Gaddings Dam I arrived here nearly comatose and was only rescued by the Steak & Ale Pie. You have to wait as it's made and cooked to order but it is the best Pie I have ever eaten and I've eaten a few pies in my... More

Old style pub, with good beer and great food. Lovely location both summer and winter. Lovely welcoming 'real' fire in the winter.

Excellent meal, plenty of choices, told in advance of an item sold out. Several members opted for ribs, either as a starter or main and were not disappointed. Very attentive service throughout the meal. Menu clearly identified veggie options, also staff obliged with gluten-free requirements.

Booked a table in advance and we were lucky enough to be seated by the window on a beautiful sunny spring evening. We were a party of four, two adults and two children. The children loved the outside play area which gave the adults a chance to chat and read the menu properly. The food was excellent. Tasty and well... More

Had lunch from the special menu, cauliflower and nut meg soup, a dream of a soup, smooth and really tasty, I followed with chicken breast and sweet pepper with rice and chips. If I had thought about it. I would have asked for a portion without any chips, everything was tasty, but just too much with both chips and rice.... More
