Above all else, we and our team work to ensure our guests enjoy the very best in hospitality.The Inn at Grinshill is a Grade 2 listed Georgian property, in a conservation area, located in the lee of Grinshill which is a site of special scientific interest and an area of outstanding natural beauty.There is a little train station in the next village which is a short stroll away, adding to the charm of this rural retreat.

“Well worth the trek!”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Went for this midweek meal with my wife. Heard about the place from Shropshire Food blog.

Greeted by amiable mein host at the bar. Roaring log fire was very welcome on this cold windy night.

Appeared to be a few locals in the bar area with their dogs, very well behaved (the dogs too!)

Good selection of wines on offer, we had a Chilean Merlot at £18.95 (my wife drank most as I was driving. Mein host offered the screw top back to us, just in case we wanted to take any of the undrunk wine home. Nice touch.

We were shown to a seating area behind the 2 way facing log fire, with really comfy and accommodating sofa's.

All food was freshly cooked. For starters I had Whitebait nibbles £4, a particular favourite of mine and my wife had the breads with oil and balsamic £5.

For main I had Pie of the day which was Pulled Pork and Cabbage. I can genuinely say it was one of the best pies I have ever had and good value at £13. Served with thrice cooked chips and garden peas, I would definitely have it again.

My wife had battered Haddock Tail again with thrice cooked chips, pea puree and tartar sauce £13. Really crispy light batter and succulent fish.

Too full for a pudding so can't comment on those, but seeing them on other tables, they looked delicious.

Overall a very pleasant evening in lovely welcoming surroundings.

Will certainly return for more.

“Absolutely amazing!”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Dave Brazier's food was stunning tonight. The pigeon was delicious and my rabbit loin was simply perfect. Shoot of the day was a duck dish with a gorgeous little duck pie. Properly honest and seasonal. The Inn is back at it's very best. If you haven't been for a while go back and try. It is most definitely back on our map! Good luck to you all with the new look menu. Thank you for being a great host Kevin,

“Superb Sunday Lunch in lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Given a voucher for the Inn by a friend, and it was a surprising and happy experience. On arrival looked nice but normal at the bar, and we were given a warm welcome by the owners. Then went through to a lovely garden room extension, with views to the pretty garden and given a superb meal. All 3 courses were imaginative and totally delicious. Don't miss the opportunity afterwards to walk up to Clive Church and enjoy the views.

“A fabulous find!”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

We have visited The Inn a few times now, each time the service and food have been exceptional. On my partners birthday recently we took a helicopter flight from Sleap airfield and followed this by a superb Sunday lunch at The Inn. We arrived early but were welcomed in with grace, seated in the conservatory and supplied with drinks. They coped with our high spirits following our experience with interest and humour and the meal itself was wonderful! We took friends with us, their first visit, and they were suitably impressed also. We shall definitely return at our earliest opportunity and highly recommend this restaurant to all seeking beautiful surroundings, excellent service and very high quality food from the team in the kitchen.
