The place was virtually empty when we arrived at 7.15 on a Friday in December, and remained that way through the evening. We were attended to promptly but when I asked for the Christmas menu (which is advertised to be available from Dec 1) it wasn't on. From the regular menu, I chose rabbit terrine, which was tasty enough but... More

We went midweek and sat by a roaring fire. My husband had chicken Kiev & I had curried sea bream, both were good. We shared frangipane tart & amaretto ice cream which was lovely. Good wine list. Food reasonably priced, good service, nice ambiance.

The standard of cooking here is outstanding. The a la carte dishes are inventive and perfectly executed. Portions are spot on and the balance of flavours faultless. All this at incredibly reasonable prices. Excellent local ales and a good value wine list. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive without being over bearing. If you are ever in Shropshire you... More
