We chose Spice of Shifnal at random mainly due to location, we live in Shrewsbury, birthday girl lives in Codsall so this was a halfway meeting point. What a wonderful find! The food was excellent, the service and staff second to none, also present my sister in law with a lovely surprise dessert/birthday cake extravaganza that was enough for all7... More

The food is sublime and the staff most pleasant. We had starters main courses and a couple of pints of cobra. The total was a reasonable... More

This was our first visit since the change of owners and we had a wonderful meal. The food is of outstanding quality with plenty of choice. The flavours of the food were exceptional. We asked for a special dish which was cooked to perfection. All the staff were very friendly and took the time to get to know us and... More

Under the new name of Spice of Shifnal. Visited this restaurant for the 3rd time since it reopened and every meal has been great. We visited as a family and my grandmother is a pescatarian - the choice of vegetable and fish dishes is extensive. Brilliant service from Abdul and his family/staff. We last went on a rather busy Saturday... More

My husband and I visited the restaurant on Friday night. We had not pre booked. The restaurant was very busy but we were soon seated and offered drinks. The food and service were excellent and we have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good food.

2nd visit since new owners had taken over, first visit was great, no Problems however, it was pretty quiet. Second visit on Saturday night 28th Feb and what a nightmare. The place was full, fair enough but the service was terrible due to there being hardly any staff. We were shown to our table then left for about 20 minutes... More

This restaurant is now called 'SPICE OF SHIFNAL'. A group of five of us went to this restaurant on Saturday night. We had booked a table for 7pm but the table we were given was at the very far end of the restaurant, beside the toilets and emergency exit. Although we were seated fairly quickly and our drinks and papadums... More

I went to what is now called The Spice of Shifnal with some old school friends: Doc, Happy, Grumpy, Sneezy and Dopey. We were also joined by the mother of one of my friends: Snow White. Our waiter was Prince Charming - he was very smiley and gave us all a warm welcome. He was particularly struck by the radiant... More
