The children got restless, and... More

Large windows and a lovely garden space,give an airy spacious and well-decorated feel to this pristine looking place. We have been 3 times now and each time the service was friendly and efficient. The choices given were not too many but that only helped the quality of the food..The Sunday Roast was very good as were the desserts.Therefore no complaints... More

We stopped here by chance when travelling back from Stafford & so glad we did. Decor was lovely, staff very friendly & great choices on the menu. We had starters & mains - both were so nice. Also they had a lovely beer garden to relax in. We will return in the future - thank you.

We were looking for somewhere for lunch on our journey home from Shropshire and passed the Shropshire Inn, thought it looked nice so decided to turn back and were delighted we did. Good food and service, we ate outside in the lovely garden, but the interior looked lovely.

It was quite empty when we arrived but more diner arrived to create a bit better atmosphere. The facilities for children are good (high chair, changing facilities etc). The food was ok but from the look... More
