The Shepherd & Dog is a destination food house situated in a rural location, about two miles from the village of Nacton and was built in the 1960s. This is a classic British carvery but with a contemporary twist, light and airy with comfortable furniture and a sumptuous feel with walls decorated in creams, sage green and chocolate brown. Our feature is the 'wine wall' situated behind the carvery station. You can still also choose to dine in the bar area from the table menu or take your carvery meal through. Why not just pop in for a fresh coffee and maybe take advantage of our free wireless internet access! Our daily carvery offers you the best of British produce, with a choice of up to 3 roasts and wide selection of fresh seasonal vegetables. If you don't want a full carvery meal we provide a a table menu with main dishes and snacks / sharers available.
