Old Boots left this review about The Shoulder of Mutton Inn

Although it looks the epitome of a North Country village pub, built in stone with ivy clad walls and Tetleys signage, it's definitely a popular dining pub rather than the village local, it attracts middle aged and middle class diners, amongst others, from nearby Harrogate, Knaresborough and beyond. Internally it is old pub décor, with plates, pictures and brassware on the moldering plaster walls, stone flags form the floor with a few strategically placed rugs. Furnishing too is traditional benches and settles with tables and chairs. It also performs as a village shop selling a few groceries in the bar. The room is U - shaped with the bar counter in the open end, this has two serving faces as a vestigial wall divides the two parts. Three handpumps on one section and two on the other, Tetleys cask, of course, plus Taylor's Landlord and Black Sheep Bitter with Golden Sheep labelled as a guest. All I tried were in excellent condition as expected in a GBG listed pub. The normal UK spirits and kegs also available, plus a 27 bin wine list as befits a dining pub. There is a fair sized car park at the rear but the entrance is a bit narrow, especially for the Beemers, Merc's and 4x4s that often visit here.
