The food and atmosphere was great to experience a welcomed time for my family treat. Age range from 7 to 62, all made to feel at home with the food and drink to suit all. Well done

It is my impression that some of the food is totally cooked in house and some are bought in meals, The steaks and other fried foods are excellent and the meals like Belly Pork, steak in ale pie and Lasagna in the £9.98 range are also attractive meals. The specials are not so special, they appear to lack passion or... More

A very disappointing and untrue review of our restaurant. We would not claim to cook ALL of our food fresh in house if we were buying in meals. We do not buy any of our food in, its all made and cooked fresh to order. My team are all trained to table check each table and customers are given the... More

Lovely country pub and restaurant with a nice outdoor seating area at the front. I like the fact that there is a separate restaurant and bar areas so you can have a relaxing pre/post dinner drink. Excellent menu with a very good selection and wonderful food. Service cannot be faulted, very polite, friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend this... More

Nice atmosphere and a friendly greeting. Good selection on the menu and 'specials' pages. Order was taken promptly and we were shown that table on time. Food and service was excellent, no complaints at all. Not sure why this great restaurant has slipped in the ratings, probably because they don't push you to rate their establishment like some of the... More

Thank you for such a brilliant review. We're so pleased you enjoy both the menu and the specials. It's so lovely to hear that the service and food are both excellent. We have slipped in the ratings, partly because we've had a couple of poor reviews and also there are a lot more establishments to compete with. This in no... More

There is always a warm welcome at The Shrew, however when we went for a meal on Saturday 14th May, the landlord (Trina) was amazing going far beyond what would normally be expected for good customer service. The food (fish & chips) was of the usual excellent standard and we enjoyed a very nice evening. We then tried to get... More
