    Just put down my spoon from my tasty dessert and am drinking my coffee whilst I write this review. Whilst working out an alternative route to the M3 due to a junction closure we passed the Shoulder of Mutton and decided to stop for lunch. Good decision! The pub is very traditional in decor for a country pub, but carpets are new and its nicely cleaned. The Italian hosts are very friendly and accomadating. We chose, chicken Risotto and piri piri chicken burger both of which were tasty. Our desserts of lemon blossom (a lightly whipped cheesecake) and toffee crunch were again delightfully presented and delicious! There was absolutely no problem using our taste card even though we hadn't booked. My only negative comment would be that the far end if the pub was rather chilly. We changed to a table near the gorgeous roaring fire and were soon toasty. We live about 9 miles away and will certainly be coming again. Thank you for an excellent lunch. "

    A warm welcome and great attentive staff. Couldn't fault the service. The home cooked food was delicious, lots of flavour and nicely presented. The only down side for us was the very very strong odour which we believe was from the open fire. Our coats needed dry cleaning and i still can't get the smell out of my leather handbag. We would love to go back to try more dishes but this has put us off. Real shame, lovely people and food. "

    We went to this delightful pub while staying in Reading for a couple of days.
    The staff were all very friendly, and on our first visit every table was taken on a Monday night.
    We were served with wonderful tasting food, which looked good and tasted even better, we enjoyed the meal so much that we booked for our second night, which was equally as good.
    Don't go if you are in a hurry as all the food I'd cooked fresh. "
