Blackthorn _ left this review about Shoulder of Mutton

A traditional old whitewashed stone walled pub just outside Stony Stratford. There are two buildings off of the car park, one is the main pub and the other is a small B&B operation. The pub has a few wooden benches out at the front which looks a pleasant enough spot and this was enhanced on a recent visit by the Christmas lights draped around the eaves. There also looks to be a good sized beer garden out the back.

Inside it’s a single, L-shape room, with carpeted flooring and a mixture of cream paintwork and wood panelling painted in a pleasant shade of green. There were a few black beams on the ceiling, and these were also adorned with fairly lights and a number of small black and white photos. A plasma screen was at either end of the “L”, both showing a football match, although the volume was down and this did not seem intrusive. A couple of stone fire-places were either side at the front, and these were both stacked full of logs although not in use which would have been a nice touch on a cold December evening. A dart board was in one corner, although this didn’t look as though it had much use with tables and leather arm chairs right in front of it.

Seating was mostly conventional tables and chairs, with a few bar stools dotted around and some fabric covered bench seating around the perimeter. Staff all seemed friendly and helpful. I don’t know when it was refurbished, but looking at a photo montage on the wall showing the pub with garish maroon paint on the walls and orange carpet, it seems to be a great improvement. The food offering was a decent enough “pub grub” menu, with most of the dishes being around the £8 mark. There was also a small specials board, and what we had was decent food and good value.

Although there were four pumps on the bar, only two were in use dispensing Doom Bar and Old Speckled Hen. Ciders were Stowford Press and a very pleasant Old Rosie.
