Its beautiful restaurant offers an excellent range of modern dishes and good wines, its bar and conservatory offer convivial spaces to sit and chat with friends over a drink and we've retained the old core of the pub so that the locals can enjoy a pint of real ale or a local cider with a game of dominoes or darts. During the late days of summer its still warm enough to sit out in the garden and enjoy a sandwich with your drink and as the autumn nights draw in, there will be a cosy fire in the hearth. It has five delightful bedrooms named after Shropshire Hills and Woodland Areas of outstanding natural beauty, all tastefully decorated to very high standards with contemporary design and all equally equipped with private en-suite bathroom, Spa toiletries and crisp white linen.All rooms are non-smoking, centrally heated with tea and coffee making facilities, Freeview TV and free broadband.
