We went for an evening meal last night and found the restaurant to be clean tidy and well presented. The meal we had was excellent and the staff courteous and efficient, all in all a very pleasant evening and highly recommended. We shall go again.

Located about 3 miles outside Stafford in the little village of Houghton, we dined here at short notice and had not booked. That said it was early evening and empty. That said, the waitress was extremely courteous and attentive, even advising us on the dessert which was rhubarb cheese cake but not as we would expect. Indeed it was a... More

This was our second visit to the Shropshire for the Sunday Lunch carvery and again, as with our first visit, it was very tasty. The beef was delicious and with 3 big slices the portion size was good. Nice choice of accompaniments which you could help yourself to. Friendly service and nice surroundings, recommended.

We visited on a Friday lunchtime and had an excellent meal on their 2 course lunchtime special. It's the second time we have visited recently and both times the deal menu went together very well, it is a compact menu but we found it very easy to choose. There is a full menu too but the lunchtime special is superb... More

We had not been to The Shropshire for quite a while and decided on a last minute, early Saturday evening visit. The menu has been revitalised and is now more extensive and there is also a decent children's offering. Our eldest daughter is now a vegan (often difficult to satisfy!) but the chef produced an excellent meal for her as... More

We visited the Shropshire with friends and have to be honest and say we could not fault the food at all. People had mentioned to us that you don't get large portions, well I can rectify that and say you definitely get enough on your plate especially when you are intending to have three courses! We all chose the fillet... More

Shropshire Inn is a first class restaurant and this time was my return visit. Look no further if you like excellent food all locally sourced and freshly prepared. All in a superb environment and served up by very friendly, efficient and professional people. Every dish was cooked to perfection and very generous portion. A three-course dinner with wine, soft drinks... More
