The Shoulder of Mutton is under new management, and, judging by the many contented diners there when we visited, they appear to be doing everything just right. Located minutes from the A38, The Shoulder is convenient for those looking to enjoy a slice of country life - there are even well-appointed guest rooms to stay in - and is popular with locals too, who come back time and again for its hearty fare and warm atmosphere.

From the many delicious-sounding options, I chose the rich rustic paté to start, while my partner had the juicy ribs in a rich Bourbon sauce. Next, I enjoyed the chef's speciality chicken balti pie; the pastry was crisp and golden, the chicken beautifully tender and the sauce subtly spiced. My companion eagerly tucked into the stuffed burger: a generous burger patty filled with bacon and Stilton cheese. We shared a slice of lemon meringue pie to finish, and agreed The Shoulder of Mutton is the ideal local pub, with friendly service, an inviting feel and, most importantly, fantastic food
