We ate at The Shrew for two nights in a row, because the food is superb and excellent value. The hosts were very welcoming and made us feel wanted - quite often I feel like you are imposing even though you are paying! The Shrew is a lovely family pub and our two children were very happy to eat there.

The food is amazing, the quality of the ingredients sings out through the meal, I never eat steak in a pub but tried it at The Shrew and was not disappointed! The home made sauces are excellent and the mackerel pate and fish cakes superb.

Booking advised....highly recommended.

My sister and I regularly meet for lunch in Uttoxeter and wanted to try somewhere new. The shrew was very welcoming, the food was the best I'd had in a long time and it was a lovely environment. The staff were also very pleasant and helpful.

I have never written a review before but felt compelled to after a wonderful mothers day lunch we had with our children last Sunday!

Well done we will be definitely back for a visit soon.

Visited the Shrew last night and once again have to compliment the staff.
Friendly bar staff let you peruse the menus whilst in the bar area, excellent menu with a good selection of daily specials as well as the standard menu. I went for the Goats Cheese Souffle, off the specials, and then Lasagne & Chips off the standard menu.

We were taken through to the restaurant area when the starters were ready and the food was superb, the Souffle was excellent, one of the best starters I've ever had. My companions had Cheese and Bacon Potato Skins and Crispy Duck Leg, both of which was polished off in full.

The Lasagne was also very good and, much as I'd have liked to, I had to turn down the desserts menu ; friends had Sea Bass fillets (two with a sauce) which he enjoyed, and Poached Chicken Breast in Mushroom sauce, which was again finished off.

The Cheese board and Lemon Cheesecake were sampled for desserts and all in all there were no complaints at all from 3 very satisfied, well fed, diners. Compliments again to the chef, wonderful food.

I would highly recommend a visit.
There is an excellent choice of food and some good offers 2 mains for £16 for example and kids eat free on certain evenings.

This is the third time we have been to this pub in recent months and it never fails to impress. The pub has character, the beers are good and the food and service are excellent. Make sure you are hungry when you go there!
