The Shoulder of Mutton is a dog, horse and steam engine-friendly pub in the heart of Strumpshaw, just a few miles from Norwich & a bit further from Great Yarmouth.

Pop in and enjoy the comfortable atmosphere of a traditional pub. Choose from a wide selection of beers, wines, and spirits, and sample our freshly prepared food. The Specials menu varies throughout the year as our experienced chefs makes the most of seasonal ingredients. We pride ourselves on stocking many locally produced Ales, Cider & Gin.  At anyone time we have up to 6 real ales on.

Dogs are welcome in all parts of the pub except the Dining Room.  The pub does get busy with dogs so if your dog is reactive or nervous you will have to take this into consideration when visiting.  Table 9 is a great table for our doggy customers who may want to be in a quiet area.  You would need to book this as it is very popular.

We have lots of outdoor seating at the front of the pub & back.  There are two covered areas in the back that over look the Petanque court and lots of benches to the front.

The Shoulder of Mutton is is perfectly placed for dog walks.  With lots of trails & walks in the surrounding countryside.

    One of the best places to eat that I've been in a long time. The food was fantastic with a wide choice of specials, there was a nice range of beers on tap, good music and a very traditional pub feel about it. Would definitely recommended.

    Made to feel extremely welcome as was our first visit on holiday, Clare looked after us and our dog who got served his own ham and bowl of water. Our food was excellent and lots of it, well recommended if you are in the area. Love atmosphere with everyone very friendly. We also went back for a Sunday roast, again not disappointed and well looked after by Clare.

    Food was yummy and staff are lovely. The food portions are huge, the sweet and sour chicken wings and chilli prawns are the star of the show. Delicious! We had fish and chips and the lasagne for the main, really good sized meal. Lovely outdoor seating area in the front, really happy we stumbled across this lovely pub. The only downside I think the staff need a little more training on drinks on offer and pricing, this being said the staff are super lovely and welcoming and this didn’t dampen our experience

    Great food, a great selection of ales a community pub, Dog Friendly and great band nights. Bob the landlord has really got the balance right here. The pub has a rewards scheme and keeps ale prices as low as possibly can (I’m not a lager drinker) On the food front This evening I had a tender Beef and Guiness Pie followed by a Claire’s moorish Ferraro Roche Sundae…definitely one on the best deserts I have devoured for a long time. For me this place sets the standard for pubs in the area. Carry on drinking….

    We had a lovely lunch here, the staff were fantastic! Clare was superbly attentive, as were the others as well. Food was scrumptious, good portions and served really quickly! It’s a very comfortable place and the perfect country pub.
