If you eat with your eyes then it is a marvellous restaurant. If you appreciate good food then not quite so. I chose Pheasant from the menu. Apart from chipping a tooth on one of the five pieces of lead shot it came with, it was overcooked and dry as a consequence. The menu was disappointing for the price. Staff... More

Eaten here a few times for dinner and lunches and also just popped in for a quick drink. Always a calm friendly atmosphere and the food is good also. It is quite nice in the back garden in the summer. I have also put my parents up in the hotel for a nights stay in Shrewsbury and they really enjoyed... More

I last reviewed the Lion & pheasant after their Valentine's dinner underwhelmed my partner & I. However, we celebrated his birthday on November 7th with a terrific cocktail in the bar followed by a faultless dinner in the upstair's restaurant. We had the same starter of salmon and fennel enveloped in a delicious dressing. Our main courses of steak and... More

I have visited a handful of times for lunch with a friend who is very keen on the establishment plus once with a large group of girlfriends for an evening meal. The service has been good on all occasions, the food has also been good - but not spectacular. I like the interior and the lovely period building but I... More

Took my Wife there End Oct 2014, food was excellent with a great choice on the Menu, The fish portion was very generous, we had 3 starters between two as just couldn't decide. Staff were young, very professional and attentive. Bill came when ordered and they didn't ignore us after delivering as many restaurants tend to do. One negative, tried... More

Quirky and intimate dining area with nice and relaxed lighting. Food was good and local produce. There was also a small intimate room (crystal) that looks nice for private dinning type events.

We came as a large group for a family celebration in October 2014 and had a perfect evening. The quality of the meat was superb, the portions were just right, it was good value considering the quality, and the presentation was lovely. The staff were busy but always polite, and we didn't have to wait long for anything. My brother-... More

I visited this restaurant for the first time for Sunday lunch in a group of 4. Characterful building combined with delicious food and good service made for a very pleasant experience. The restaurant had become very busy by the time we left so it's certainly popular and I was glad that I'd booked online! Very enjoyable and good value for... More
