The Shepherd's Hut

Always nice to find somewhere new that's good.
Every so often we go for dinner with some good friends and take turns in choosing a new restaurant to try. This one was a winner. Only a few miles from home but I haven't been here for years. I heard that they had a new chef and thought it worth a go. We weren't disappointed. Service was friendly but professional, food was great (menu changes regularly) and the atmosphere very nice. This restaurant is now on our list of local favourites.
Good for Sunday lunch
When walking the nearby Ridgeway, the Shepherd's Hut is a pleasant village pub, albeit with an odd eye for decor: disembowled pianos, propellors on the ceiling, swords and chairs too ! The real draw is the food. Service is pleasant and attentive, but slow...this is the price worth paying for a delicious Sunday lunch. I had the French Onion soup, with some of the best garlic croutons encountered.
We found this pub by chance when visiting Ewelme for a memorial service in the beautiful church. The beer was superb and our lunch excellent. The salmon in gin and blackberries was innovative and delicious - A great find!
