Having eaten at various pubs in Church Stretton we decided to try something new. We saw The Pound and were not disappointed. The beer garden is a little noisy from the road traffic but very pretty and well tended. The food was freshly cooked and homemade. Chicken Kiev took 20 minutes to cook but was both tasty and plentiful. Fish... More

What a wonderful meal this evening at The Pound. The food was amazing, really well presented and so lovely to see a menu not chock full of an excessive amount of options. Just enough choice. We had three courses each and were so impressed with the quality of food and the portion sizes. The service was also second to none.... More

There were eight in our party and everyone found something to their taste. Great evening - delicious food cooked to perfection and well presented. The varied menu has lots of choice and is changed regularly. Friendly staff and good service. Children are made welcome and are well catered for. Plenty of car-parking space and a nice garden if weather permitting... More

On our way back from Cheshire to SW England my wife and I decided to stop off at The Pound and were pleasantly surprised. The menu was thoughtful, the food well presented, the service was attentive and the wine was nicely chilled. My wife had roast lamb and I had rainbow trout, mussels, squid all served in a fish sauce.... More

Smaller portions were available for children which was much appreciated. All the food was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The roast pork was really tasty and served with a lovely...

I visited the Pound for a business lunch and everyone in my party was, to say the least, disappointed. The staff seemed more interested in playing with their mobiles or chatting to friends than the customers. When we were able to order, the food took 45 minutes to arrive (at lunchtime?) and they'd got the order wrong. When it was... More

A table of 12 people had an excellent meal in this easily accessible restaurant on the A49 between Shrewsbury and Church Stretton. Though we sat on a table next to a large window out on to the busy highway, there was little or no road noise and what there was was easily overcome by the happy babble of people enjoying... More
