Amazing

I had dinner here recently suggested by my other half and I can honestly say the bar/restaurant service and quality was second to none.

On our recent visit to the Midlands, we arranged to meet friends for lunch in Shrewsbury. We picked this restaurant based only on Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Service was excellent and the food was good too - lunch specials (including a daily roast) are displayed on a blackboard - prices are very reasonable with sandwitch and chips specials... More

We reserved a table on a Saturday night for a large group of us. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The food was lovely, I had the pate and the belly pork which I enjoyed very much, then me and my partner shared the meringue. Nice big portions of veg came with the meals. I would defienlty return!

Called in for lunch on a Saturday. It was busy but we were met by friendly staff who quickly led us to a table and explained what was on offer. The food was good and varied, with several specials of the day. It was fairly priced for what was on offer - the walnut ice cream was wonderful. A good... More
