4 of us had a really nice meal at The Shrew a couple of weeks ago.
The food was excellent,service was faultless.
A well run,friendly establishment that serves top food at a remarkably low price.
Thoroughly recommended

“Still the best sunday lucnch you will find anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Yet again we have to write and say just how fantastic Trina and Jason and their team are.
We visited them on a very cold and snowy Sunday for lunch, we were as usual made to feel very welcome and it felt like visiting old friends, the food cooked by Jason and his team was just superb and served by Trina and her team, need I add more, other than if you have not visited the SHREW yet, and you love good value food give it a try.
Thanks again guys, we will see you soon.
Wilf and Diane Hodgson.

“Good meal, great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Went to the Shrew on Sunday for lunch, l ate the two specials of game terrine and halibut with a lemon/butter sauce, both were excellent!
Staff were friendly, bill was modest, so all in all a good experience that l would recommend!

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Ate here for my wife's birthday, bar was busy and noisy and it was a bit confusing at first working out where to go for the restaurant (the bar). The restaurant was moderately busy (it was Christmas Eve) and the atmosphere was nice if a little less cosy than I was hoping for. However the service was good, attentive and friendly. Food choice was good and quality also good quality so I am sure we will be back.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We came from Preston, Nottingham and Chester to join together for a New Year family meal and could not have found a better restaurant. With two toddlers we found the Shrew to be very family friendly with a high chair in place immediately and food specially prepared for the children. Adult options were extensive and the meals were both generous and very well cooked. We could have eaten in the pub but the restaurant was spacious and better suited for family groups. Service wasn't fast but this was not a problem as the whole experience was very relaxed and we spent almost three hours over our visit. The Shrew is a gem and will now be used whenever we need to meet up.
