Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I visit here on a regular basis because obviously I like the food but also enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the place. There is a fairly extensive lunch menu at a reasonable price, which is comparable with other similar eateries in the area. Very tasty food served in sufficient quantity so you don't leave feeling hungry. I'm usually served by Mike who is very welcoming and is clearly a professional at his job. Well worth a visit - I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Went for Thursday special steak night, special price for 2 meals and a drink each. Steak is superb, service attentive without being overwhelming and the food is always served piping hot. Nice atmosphere highly recommend you visit.

i recently joine the celeration of a very special birthday with 22 people, I was extremely impressed with the quality of service as well as the food. Despite it being such a large party everything ran like clockwork and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They went a long way to making a special evening for a very special person. Thank you

As advertised this was rated highly. While the decor was fresh (especially the huge cutlery on the wall) The steak left a lot to be desired. I asked for rare it came medium rare, which for the price I felt was unacceptable, it came with peppercorn sauce, this was poorly seasoned and tasted more like gravy. The steak was also poorly seasoned. Then I opted for the cheese BOARD. This is how it is advertised on the menu. It came on a PLATE. While I didn’t complain I feel like the service was also to a low standard. The puddings were surprisingly good. But after such a poor start getting to pudding was a painful process. Certainly room for improvement. Especially at these times where the pub isn’t full for lunch and plenty of time to refine dishes to the highest possible standard.

Dear Rue, We are sorry to hear about your experience with us at The Shropshire Inn. If you would of made us aware that your steak was under seasoned and over cooked when we checked with your table if they were happy with the food, we would of sorted this out for you straight away. This is the first complaint we have had about our peppercorn sauce, but as it was not to your taste we would of gladly swapped it for a different one for you. The cheese is advertised as a cheese board but is served on a plate, we do not feel this takes anything away from the taste of the dish. You have mentioned that the service was to a low standard but have not elaborated on why this was? As you didn't complain on the day this was very difficult for us to put right for you as we were not aware there was a problem. Thank you for your comments on the desserts & the décor of the restaurant, if you would like to discuss any of this please give us a call at the restaurant. Regards Michael

We had the most amazing evening at the Shropshire Inn, hubby had the steak which he said was cooked to perfection (med rare) and very tasty, I had the gammon and that was also perfect, the chips, salad etc all freshly prepared. Portions very generous. Too full for pudding really but the deconstructed lemon meringue sounded too tempting to miss so we ordered one & two spoons..it was just out of this world taste wise..lovely. We highly recommend this restaurant as the ambience was perfect, food presentation & taste excellent and the staff very friendly & smart, the restaurant manager very attentive. Top marks to the whole Shropshire team. We will definitely be back....thanks for a superb evening.

I have visited this place a few times and it has always been consistent. My last visit was on the 20th of August (Thursday), as it’s their steak night, my absolute favourite meal! I went with a friend, we were greeted promptly by a very friendly member of staff and showed to our table. The order was taken quickly and the waiting time was reasonable considering how busy they were. Both our steaks very cooked perfectly to our liking, desserts were delicious too. I will definitely be back to try other dishes.

Our family went to the Shropshire last night for our first meal indoors together since the pandemic, and we’re very pleased to say we chose to return to the Shropshire as its always been a favourite. As expected, it was a safe and reassuring environment given the times we’re in; our waitress wore a mask, tables were well spaced out and in general there was a calm and organised ambience in the restaurant. As usual the food was lovely, although the menu seemed a bit limited in choice as I didn’t fancy any of the starters and there was only one main course I was in the mood for. We opted for our normal chicken supreme (would recommend you ask for extra sauce though) which was succulent, fresh and came with some lovely veg; which is great because the meal felt like a lovely treat but not a load of junk like what you often find yourselves eating when you go out. The dessert selection was much more exciting as I was toying between a couple of the options, eventually going for sticky toffee pudding which was spongey and not too dense! Overall, a lovely night and kudos to the team for keeping the environment safe and carefully controlled in regards to covid, yet still feeling like the good times we knew there before!

Wonderful welcome to a beautiful clean village restaurant. Great choice of menu, cooked to perfection. 5 of us dined with ages from 16 to 70s and a couple in between. The mackerel starter was amazing. 2 had steaks - wonderful. One duck and one lamb- great and my chicken was fantastic....as was my dessert. Thank you

Very disappointed that a vegetarian option wasn’t included alongside the Sunday roast. My family had a traditional roast and I would have liked all the veg and yorkshires with an alternative to meat. There was nothing much else to choose from. The roast was a disappointment too. Meat portions were stingy and the yorkshires were overdone making them dry and crumbly. Will not be returning.

My wife and I attempted to have lunch and waited at the restaurant door to be seated as signs instructed. After a couple of minutes and no sign of staff we walked around the building following signs for the bar. We were met with a locked gate and turned back to the restaurant door. After another wait at the door we proceeded into the building to the bar to rouse staff to our desire to eat. We were then confronted by a staff member who reprimanded us for going to the bar and argued that we had not been waiting and that he was there, which he had not been. We left after he rudely asked 'what do we want?' and continued to argue with us whilst removing his face mask that we had not been waiting and that WE were rude! This I would suggest, is most definitely not how to greet guests or indeed have them return.

Havent been here for about 10 years. The first thing that struck me was what a beautiful room it was, relaxed spacious seating, soft lighting, really nice ambiance. Then a lovely guy came to bring menus and take our drinks order. Food was superb, and a good range on offer. My husband said, 'theres at least 3 more things I want to go back and try. I'd got back for the cheesecake you had - it was amazing.' That sums it up. We tried tandoori chicken, fish and chips and pheasant - all excellent, as was the beer and wine. Staff thoughtful and conscientious but allowing time to relax. Just wanted to say thanks for making our family meet up a great evening. We will return!

Had a lovely meal here Xmas Eve with family, delicious food, good price and the kids loved It too. Had a quick 20 minute walk around the Main Street Christmas lights before heading home. Generous size car park which has a warden on with a check list to ensure you have a meal booked which is great.

Phenomenal experience. As for the food well it’s is Absolutely phenomenal to an extreme high standard and presentation, atmosphere, and wait staff. Have been here multiple times, and every time is an amazing experience all around. I always take my out of town guests here, as the food is always superb.

Glad to be back in our local enjoying a meal, menu has great choices and changed every few days. Adhering to social distancing and new sanitation rules, so felt safe and enjoyed being back in the restaurant. Beer garden well spaced out and friendly at a distance👏
