We've eaten here a few times, and I won't comment here on the food. However I would like to urge the owners of this popular pub to spend some money on it very soon, because the general tattiness of the interior is bound to lose them customers. The restaurant is filled with truly dreadful furniture. The tables have horrible unhygienic... More

Pleasant enough pub and worth popping in for a quick lunch as service is very quick. However, the food is ok but nothing special. The waiter was delightful and efficient. But it is looking tired inside with rather tatty furniture desperately in need of renovating or really replacing. I didn't use the loo, but my husband did and he said... More

Real Ale, Real Food, Real Service. Not so easy to find but once you are through the doors, sit back with your tipple and if inclined as we were, enjoyed a well prepared and presented meal. Special offers if you dine before 1930hrs Sunday thro Wednesday together with happy hours. Nice old ambience. We shall return.

We've eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed. We've had lunch and dinner and have always enjoyed the food and had good service. There's usually an early bird deal with two courses for £10, so great if you're on a budget. The restaurant is very comfortable and cosy with a great ambiance. I'm happy to recommend The... More

On Saturday 9th July 2016, my family celebrated my 48 year old daughters birthday at The Coach & Horses, Swan Hill, Shrewsbury. My daughter had previously booked the table for five persons (namely; my wife, my daughter, grandson, his girl friend and my granddaughter). They arrived at 1930 hours and were immediately shown to a table. A waiter came and... More

Visited earlier in the week for an evening meal. I agree with another recent review that the main menu is limited. We had quite a wait before our meals came so they must have been freshly prepared. For dessert two of us chose meringue and mixed berries but unfortunately I needed to use a knife to break into it as... More

We met a local couple on Sunday evening and asked them to recommend some where to eat. We were not disappointed, it was excellent in most ways except one which was the delay in service, otherwise could not fault it.

This is our standby option for Sunday lunch when we can't get a table at our number 1 choice but this Sunday we were left perplexed by the terrible quality of the meal. The pork was undercooked, the beef over cooked and tough. Vegetables were mainly cool or cold. For desert the absolute favourite Baileys cheesecake did not seem to... More
