The Pound at Leebotwood is a 15th century thatched country pub and restaurant, situated in the heart of rural picturesque Shropshire countryside and is run by Neil & Sarah McCann. Our menu offers dishes created from fresh local ingredients, we use local and artisan suppliers, within a 30 mile radius where possible. Neil and Harry change the menus in tune with the seasons, so there will always be something new on the menu. We offer a classic Sunday lunch menu every week, always serving three roasts along with elements of our menu to suit all tastes and appetites.

The Pound review has caused me some difficulty. Whilst the actual food was very good there were a number of other issues which were not so good. I understand this ‘Pub’ has recently undergone a refurbishment. It has no period features inside, bland and utilitarian. To advertise it as 15 century country pub is misleading. It the same as thousands... More

The Pound has new owners, very very recently, so ignore any adverse comments before the last few weeks, but any after that, you need to give some consideration to them training up new staff. We are so very glad to have this newly run restaurant close to our home. Our first visit with the new chef was a delight. The... More

Driving down from North Wales to Cardiff my husband and I discovered this 15th century inn. The service was excellent. Our waitress was friendly, very knowledgable and attentive. The menu was small and compact with lots of locally sourced ingredients, like Gloucester Old Spot pork and the food had a modern, contemporary twist. I had the pork and black pudding... More

Went for Sunday lunch, the food was lovely and the service was great. We were a large party and we didn't have to wait long at all! All the food was presented beautifully. The homemade ice cream was delicious! We will definitely be returning.

We all had 3 courses and thought the various dishes were excellent quality. The main courses were however very small and there was a very long wait between courses. Left the restaurant feeling hungry. For these reasons my overall score is poor. Unlikely to return.
