The man needed intravenous caffeine after our drive up, so I installed him into a Cafe Nero in Shrewsbury, after checking into our cute Glamping Pod over in Crew Green. A few hours later and we both realised we needed to eat... only the man needed his Sunday Roast and nothing else was going to do.
So I flipped open the mobile and searched British Food on tripadvisor - the Windmill came up and it wasn't far from the camping site either. I phoned up too to make sure they were doing Sunday Roasts and spoke to a really great guy called Peter - the phone reception from me was rubbish but Peter was such a gentleman and managed to understand the language of Darlek (!) and booked us a table and assured us the roast was still being served - result.
This place is a real pub and the views outside are gorgeous. The owners are so friendly and very involved and the waitresses work really hard and remain cheerful. We had local Welsh Lamb and Shropshire Turkey roasts - we were given lots of meat which was tasty and succulent, as well as a lovely tray of veggies (including REAL cauliflower cheese, not that insipid stuff they serve at a cheap carvery). I had the cheese afterwards, which was a delight and was served with grapes and strawberries - the man had sticky toffee pudding with custard, the custard was sublime and you could taste the vanilla in it.
Peter sent us away happy and full and a desire to return again, thank you ! PS there are stacks of back copies of Country Life in the restaurant, which features Shropshire and Wales, which was lovely if, like us, you're new to the area.
