I just love the décor in this restaurant. Staff are friendly and efficient. We ordered the turkey Christmas lunch - it was excellent and lovely and hot. Not cheap but you get what you pay for and this was excellent quality and well cooked.

Service excellent ambience excellent so so let down with the food . Steak poor value topped with a anchovy butter that completely over powered a very small steak . Christmas pudding was a very small slice from what seemed to be a catering block of pudding tasteless with a revolting brandy foam . Shame we will never return and we... More

Initial welcome was acceptable. Taken upstairs to restaurant. Barn like interior nothing special. Orders taken. The food brought out could not be commented on for taste as there was so little on the plates. One quest asked- where are the vegetable- and was smartly told - you have to pay extra for them!! The total 3 course meal didn't constitute... More

We booked in for a group of 18 for dinner on a Saturday night. Most of us had been before but were a little worried that the normal high styandards might not be the same with so mnay of us. We were put upstairs in one o the bigger rooms and although it was a little cosy around the table... More

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
