I've already reviewed The Shrewsbury Arms and said how lovely everything is there, from the food to the waitresses and of course Trina, but I wanted to write another review after reading the appalling comment on the 6th July. The food here is clearly nothing like the food you get at a harvester or a chain pub... It is fresh,... More

We have just left the Shrewsbury Arms in Kingston... What a treat... Afternoon tea for four of us. . Smoked salmon sandwiches with lemon & chive mayo, cucumber and cream cheese, local duck egg and mayo, beef with horse radish and home carved ham... All on local bread...with the crust cut off! The tiny salmon quiche were just wonderful... Then... More

Seldom do I feel compelled to write reviews that extol the virtues of restaurants as most experiences are not worthy of the effort required. However, in the case of the Shrewsbury Arms (The Shrew) the welcome, the friendliness, the food, the staff and the entire experience creates a moral obligation in me to devote time to this review. Nestled in... More

Having read the various reviews we decided to take a long journey and visit this venue. How I wish we had stayed at home. We were greeted by a quite polite lady who said that someone would bring a menu to us and took our drink order.45 minutes later we were still waiting to be shown to our table that... More

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your "chain pub" experience. As you can see from our previous reviews that is not our standard. You waited 25 minutes for fresh food to be cooked to order. That is typical of our establishment. We have been a reputable place to eat for 10 years now and as front of house... More

Yet another first class Sunday lunch at the Shrew, never ever fails to deliver quality, quantity and full of flavour, proper home cooked cuisine.

I don't usually write reviews on here but I feel obliged to after last nights meal.

Reviewed before but deserves an update. As always, the service is very good and staff really friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Food is excellent and the specials menu for both starters and mains is changed regularly, always a hard decision as to what to order as they're all so good. Just had a refurbishment, new furniture, carpets and decoration... More
