We visited Shelley's at 6pm on a Sunday. Initial greeting was pleasant enough, it was not busy. There were about 4 tables occupied, not much of an atmosphere and the music was too loud, one customer complained about this. We chose to have the carvery and stood waiting for service, we were told they'd be along in a while, we... More

Originally we weren't going to visit this restaurant having been put off by a few negative comments, but we popped our heads in to see what it was like, where we were greeted by lovely Emily, and instantly decided we would like to try it and make our own minds up. And we are SO glad we did! Jack was... More

We were greeted by a very friendly waitress who said we could sit where-ever we wanted. The menu looked to be quite limited but there is... More

Its clear alot of heart has gone into this place however the decor is cheap, tacky silk flowers, wall canvases that can be brought from Argos/ebay, the tables and chairs are like... More

Disappointing to hear some of your comments about the experience you've had with us here. Particularly the claim that we're not Fine Dining. Of course I have to disagree. We have especially good food such as our Pan Seared Duck, Tournedos Spiced Salmon, Red Pepper and Spinache Stuffed Crepes, which we serve in a formal manner. I am in left... More
