Excellent food and a warm welcome at our local!

As regular visitors to The Shrew we know we will always enjoy a high standard of food, but we have recently discovered the monthly breakfast club. Very popular and no wonder the full English breakfast is delicious and very good value for money. The perfect start to the weekend!

Me and a party of 16 visited the shrew a few days ago. The food was excellent however the table was booked for half past 7 but we weren't served until half past 8. We then weren't given our food for a further 40 minutes. This was very disappointing as our party had several young children whom didn't get served... More

As a response to your review received, I am very disappointed to hear of your negative comments regarding the service. You state in your review that we didn't serve you until 8.30pm. I have a printed copy from the till which states the order coming in to the kitchen at 8.08pm. If you bear in mind that your table was... More

This was my second visit to The Shrew having first visited on New Years Eve 2014. The food is second to none, I really could not find fault in anything.

Just been a week at Alton towers. On the last day, me, my wife and my son decided to have something different, so I looked up on Tripadvisor for a nice restaurant near us and we find The Shrew. On arrival, it looked like a very old English pub but the atmosphere inside as brilliant. When we walked in, a... More
