Popped in for a lunch mid week and had a lovely meal, could only manage 2 courses as portions were large. Decided to take family for Sunday lunch, the staff were attentive and the food was fabulous. We intend to make it our regular place to eat.

I'm ashamed to say I have lived within walking distance of this place for two years and had not managed to venture in, despite it being so easily accessible! Great place, fab decor and layout, lovely relaxed atmosphere and importantly very friendly staff. My party (including baby) were very well catered to, service was efficient and helpful and courses came... More

I have enjoyed a delicious meal here before but my recent visit left me feeling disappointed. The portion sizes were so tiny for my main and starter and although they were delicious, when considering the cost there should have been at least an adequate amount of food on my plate. My dessert, however, was about twice the size of my... More

Sad Always loved the Lion and Pheasant for a lunch with friends in Shrewsbury, so I am a fan. But yesterday was very let down, extremely slow service and over fatty sea bass. Come on Lion and Pheasant, we know you can do better. What has happened to the management?

Very busy establishment and not enough space at times to accommodate everyone, so be prepared for the possibility of being sat in the bar area for your dinner. It takes ages for food to arrive on your table, service is very slow!

Booked a table for a evening meal while staying in Shrewsbury on a shopping weekend. We have stayed at this hotel before and know of it's excellent reputation for food and our evening didn't disappoint as far as the food was concerned, excellent throughout. However we did occasionally think that we should remind the waiting staff that we were only... More

After making a booking for a Christmas party we were disappointed, the follow up and confirmation was less than acceptable.The bar staff were very friendly, we were taken to our table upstairs where we were the only ones up there, there was no atmosphere and it was quite chilly up there..We waited for quite a considerable time before our meal...

We booked what was described as a special offer paying £38 per head for the included four course dinner "selected" from the Al a Carte menu. The menu for the special offer is a slimmed down version of the main menu excluding the more expensive options and it turned out it was cheaper to choose from the main menu. That... More

Met a friend here for lunch on a weekday. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The decor here is very calm and relaxing, and on a cold day the open fire in the bar eating area was very cosy. The lunch menu is varied, and the haddock risotto was excellent and the service faultless. Highly recommended.

Let me first of all say I have had decent food here in the past and can understand the good reviews. On this occasion the food portions were so meagre it was a joke. If you know the story of the kings cloths then it fits this meal perfectly there was virtually no food. I wont bore you with the... More
