A small group of us meet here regularly for a couple of pints and a natter. Always welcoming. An excellent range of well kept decent beers at decent prices. Dog friendly. What more does one need from a local pub.

Hi I think you have put this review on the wrong pub as the Shephards Rest Sowerby bridge doesn't serve food just pork pies to go with our real ale many thanks
