About Shoulder of Mutton

We are a traditional free house country pub set in the beautiful Suffolk countryside village of Assington. We are closely located to both Sudbury and Colchester; you will also find the picturesque villages of Stoke by Nayland, Bures, Wormingford, Leavenheath & Nayland within a short distance.

The building dates from the early 19th century and is situated in the heart of Assington, which is also home to Assington Thicks and Arger Fen. In addition to our wonderful beers, wine & spirits, we offer a wide selection of fresh, good quality food dishes. We warmly welcome you to come and enjoy our homely pub. Please check our Contact Page for our opening/closing times. Please contact us if you require any further assistance.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
