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.

We had a family re-union meal for 6 people. The service was very good as were the meals which were all different and all freshly cooked and brought to the table together. Presentation was interesting with discoveries under each element of the meal. The other patrons were of the older... read more

The two of us arrived quite early one Thursday evening, circa 7.30. We had not made a reservation and we were told it might be difficult to accomdate us due to pressure on the kitchen at this time. The place was almost empty. We were about to leave when the waitress found us a table and took our drinks order... More

Stumbled upon The PoundInn after a day's walking around Church Stretton. We had no preconceptions but we're tempted in by the menu posted on the outside. Inside we were greeted by a very welcoming hostess at the bar who was then very accommodating in finding us a table tour liking. The food when it arrived was beyond expectation sweet perfectly...

Booked this restaurant for meal out with family and it was delicious and very reasonable. Would recommend to all. There is no kids menu but they are willing to offer smaller dishes of main menu. The tastes of lamb meal was very nice.

we were a mixed party of adults and children, with one child being special needs. Lovely welcome, nothing too much trouble. The goats cheese tortellini with basil and olive salad was wonderful so tasty. the youngest in the party aged five, loved his battered fish, he ate it all. Homemade ice cream delicious. we will visit again.

The new owners have reenergized The Pound with really tempting menus and excellent food. We went for a Saturday lunch and loved it. John Williams is a hard act to follow in the kitchen but Neil McCann has obviously been inspired to emulate him, and on the evidence of our meal, he is succeeding. A wonderful Confit Onion & Garden... More

We stopped off on a trip from north to South Wales and knew that it was going to be magnificent as soon as we crossed the threshold. Fantastic smell of steak, wonderful ambience, wooden flooring and large beams. Highly recommend it

The Pound was recommended by our B&B hostess as we wanted to eat some good local food. We were lucky to get a table as this is popular with locals and visitors. It's a pub/restaurant. We had a table for two in the restaurant. The menu was exciting, the food and service excellent. Great value for money. Worth travelling to... More
