We couldn't wait to try this restaurant after seeing this lovely thatched roof establishment. The menu was the best I've seen, along with perfect plating. Three of us were in our party, and all three had very bland food. Even the lamb was dry. So disappointed.

A favourite for a long time this is the first visit since the new owners took over, it did not dissapoint. First class service, beautifully cooked food and a nice glass of wine. A very enjoyable evening.

We were given a very warm welcome and drinks order taken quickly. An interesting menu with many familiar dishes and some interesting different ones. The lamb was good and the spell and beetroot risotto tasty and different. Considering it was a Tuesday there was a large number of tables occupied. Well worth visiting.

We just had lunch at the Pound in Leebotwood and everything we had heard about the new management was accurate. The food was great & the service friendly. Whats not to love. As a starter, I settled on the textures of heritage carrots with smoked goats cheese, hazelnuts and leaves. It was a small yet artfully presented plate of food... More

We had Sunday lunch at the Pound a few weeks ago. The starters were delicious, in particular the velouté. The mains were also gorgeous, with a good variety of fresh vegetables and perfectly cooked beef and pork. Sadly we were too full for a sweet but people around us were very complimentary when tucking into theirs. The staff were so... More

Situated a short drive from Church Stretton on the A49 this is a pub/restaurant with a growing reputation for good food. Acting on recommendations we ate there and found the food excellent and the service good and friendly. The only drawback was that they allow dogs in the restaurant and we regard that as an absolute no-no. Eating to the... More
