Will Larter left this review about Royal Shepherd Inn

A somewhat altered multi-roomed pub within falling in distance of the Leeds-Liverpool canal. On the bar are four hand pumps but only Tetleys Cask and Ossett Blonde on at the time of my visit. As it was Saturday night and the height of summer, I guess that they only ever have two beers on at a time, though I could be wrong. My half of the Tetleys was in good condition, and very well poured using the autovac to recycle the beer through the sparkler and eliminating waste. I'd like to call back here at a quieter time for the sake of the beer, as otherwise I didn't much enjoy myself - but that's Saturday nights, I suppose.

A nice 3 roomed pub. Its a bit basic decor wise but was pleasant enough. A pool table is to the rear. 5 handpumps with beers from Butcombe, Moorhouse, Leeds breweries today. A canalside location with the canal out front.

What a really nice pub! Four ales on, Copper Dragon Best, Saltaire Blonde, Butcombe Bitter and Romsey Blonde. Tried all of them except the Butcombe. They were top quality ales, but the Copper Dragon just nicked it. The barmaid worked her socks off, and was excellent. We also ate here. The food was superb. Only suggestion - put a dark ale on. But that's me being picky. I liked it in here. And I got to watch some of the Olympics in a civil atmosphere. Recommended!
