I reserved a table at Fennels for 8 friends - I telephoned a couple of days before we were due to visit the restaurant only to be informed by the owner that our reservation had been cancelled by my husband the previous day! (This most definitely did not happen) I said there must be some mistake and assured him that... More

This is my favourite place to eat out. Each time we been both as a couple and as a group the meals have been fab and the waiting staff are brilliant too. You need to plan in advance as it's not easy to get a table am really quite sad if the rumours are true and it's closing soon.

My partner and I have dined at Fennels on a number of occasions and needless to say, we have always found the food and service very good.However our last visit was marred by an oversalted dish and a table too close to the kitchen door. Bar for this one experience, we have always been impressed by the food.

First time visitor for a birthday meal. We chose to have the 3 courses for £26. The food is very good, with the steaks cooked perfectly as requested. Service is polite and functional and the ambience nice. However the shock of the night was when we asked for some more bread. Yes no problem, but I'll have to add 50p... More

We have just been to Fennels for a family birthday celebration on an evening when there were two other birthday celebrations in the restaurant! Fennels is located in a quaint half-timbered building in the middle of Shifnal. We were cheerfully welcomed by the two waitresses, seated and drinks orders quickly taken. The starters we ordered from the small but comprehensive... More

We came here as a group of eight friends to celebrate my sisters birthday. One had been here before and recommended it. The restaurant is small and probably doesn't seat more than 20 people, this in itself gives it a cosy and intimate feel. We were sat down at our table and the waitress asked us what drinks we would... More

This is a lovely little restaurant and never too busy to ensure that you receive excellent service. Each course is delivered at just the right pace to ensure that you you have time to digest the previous course without feeling that you have been forgotten for the next. Everything about the food and service is faultless. My wife and I... More

Fennels is a really great little restaurant and we've never been disappointed. Tonight we had one fantastic fillet steak and one liver & bacon with delicious gravy and mash of course. Try it!
