Unless it was a carvery for vegetarians, this was a joke. If you like decent portions of meat, don't go here.
I came to Shepherd and Dog in Ipswich with my wife and children for the carvery on father's day. I was looking forward to it, as I enjoy a good carvery with plenty of meat. We were escorted to a table in a far flung corner, separated from the rest of the restaurant. When we went up for the carvery, a rather grumpy looking chef appeared who went to great pains to slice the meat as thinly as possible. It was literally transparent. We were given two meagre slices each. After being to many other carveries where ample portions are served, this was really pathetic for the price we paid. If you like your meat, give this place a miss. We have been there for a drink several times, but we would never eat there again.
