The traditional dining room – with wood-panelled walls, views of the surrounding countryside and contemporary tables and chairs – creates a quiet yet opulent atmosphere for romantic escapes and special celebrations. Butler's Bar is perfect for relaxing pre/post dinner drinks, and boasts high-backed leather chairs, solid wooden tables, cosy sofas, a selection of real ales and a list of new and old world wines.

I stay at the hotel weekly and the quality of the food is always very good. They need to advertise and 'sell' this restaurant a lot more to the hotel guests particular since so many leave to eat in Shifnal town.

I called the restaurant on the Tuesday to book a table for two for the Friday evening and I was told there was an availability at 8pm. So we turned up on Friday and noticed some disco lights in the window, thinking it was a separate room from the restaurant we proceeded into the reception. When we walked in, we... More

Liked atmosphere (didn't feel uncomfortable as lone female), service excellent, food good. I had fishcakes - delicious but could have done with a bit more salad and dressing.

Booked a table for the 241 Three course Sunday lunch menu for my partner and I. The room was not very atmospheric it was like a school dinner hall big and empty, I think this was the over fill room rather than the main dining room. Food though, was very tasty. Would recommend and certainly go back.

we ate here on a Friday evening and opted for the good value steak menu. The food was of good quality for the price. However, there are two main reasons for not grading this establishment higher. Firstly the staff and general service. It appears that the staff are not well trained. For example, the waitress had no clues to the... More

Steak nights provide steak for 2 and a bottle of wine for £35 if I remember correctly. Obviously you add a few extras here and there so the bill will be more than this, but it's still good value. Nicely cooked meal and good service. Prefer the bar to the rather formal restaurant.

We all chose different meals from the starters through to the sweets. Unfortunately we had to go inside for the coffee because it started to... More
