I visited as a part of five on a Friday evening. The venue, staff and service were all reasonably good and the waiters very polite. The food itself was not good and really let down what we had hoped to be a great meal. One of our starters was wrong, and the restaurant did realise that and apologise- so that... More

Travelling back to London yesterday through a lovely little village called Haughton and stopped of at the Shropshire Inn, we had fillet of salmon which was very good and looked stunning my husband had the lamb shank which looked beautiful and he said it was beautiful!! We will definitely be back when passing through again excellent food and service.

Stopped by here (by chance) today on the way back from Stafford at about 3pm. There were two or three other couples at other tables so not what could be described as busy. My beef & ale suet pie with veg was fine but my wife's 'beer battered fish' was almost cremated. The batter was an over-cooked very dark brown... More

We went there as my boyfriend's mum and dad moved over to the village and we wanted to evaluate what the local eateries can offer - as you do! What a great place that is! My other half went all classic fish and chips and I had a salad. Our food was lovely, served quickly and beers were good as... More

We have just got back from a meal here. The room is very nice and the meat eaters meals were OK but the main course menu only lists one vegetarian option. The waitress then explained that certain meals were also available in a vegetarian version. When we asked for more details neither the waitress or the 'manager/head waiter' were able... More

Nice venue but terrible chef! Food was tasteless. Not at all upto the standard the reviews suggest. I had muscles which seemed to have been soaking so long that they lost all their texture. The cream must have been heated seperately and the muscle juices removed which took away all the flavour of any sea. I had duck for the... More

We arrived without a booking at 3pm on a Sunday. A carvery was advertised until 4pm when the normal menu would be available again. One course was £10 - all fine so far. The gastro pub was decorated in a modern style with a pleasant glass roofed extension and the garden was attractive. However when we came to order our... More
