Description: If you want to eat out in Bishops Castle look no further - Shropshire has a long history of culinary excellence. Shrewsbury has a plethora of good restaurants, and Ludlow is just down the road, which for a time boasted more Michelin starred restaurants than London itself! We don‘t do Michelin at The Castle, but we certainly use many of the same local suppliers. We’re spoilt for them actually. What we aim to produce is modern, good pub food that is healthy, hearty, flavoursome and fresh. And great value of course. And you’ve a wide choice of places to eat at The Castle. Each of the three bars has its own individual character, some with open fires, some with terraces out into the garden. Or try our oak panelled restaurant, believed to feature in the Mary Webb novel “The House in Dormer Forest”. And when the weather is warm, and remember it’s always sunny in Shropshire, our beautiful south facing gardens with fantastic terrace and raised fish ponds provide the perfect spot for a light repast and a cooling beverage.

sampled the fresh fish menu during our visit to Bishops castle, choice and quality were very good.
well presented and reasonably priced, Goats cheese starter was excellent, followed by sea bream with pesto sauce. If you've room for dessert don't miss the whinberry cheescake, I shared mine on this occasion but will not do next time!

Good meal in pleasant surroundings. Potted crab followed by chicken Caesar salad. I also got to sample bream on crushed new potato in a pesto cream. A good but unspectacular main menu supplemented this Thursday night by an interesting fish menu, my food was good and everything I saw around also looked tasty. Sadly I was driving so didn't sample the fine range of local real ale. Next time. Was either a very good 4 stars or a 'just about' 5. I left feeling happy so that will be 5.

We ate in the formal dinning room with wood-panelled walls but the atmosphere was relaxed. The fresh fish specials menu never disappoints and the staff were very friendly.

Had a lovely meal on a warm evening sitting next to the window in the dining room. Very good Tortellini followed by a delicious Whinberry / shortcake dessert. Glass of Merlot set us back £4.50 but it was considerably better than the Merlot from a pub the previous evening.

We ate at this hotel each night of our stay and we thoroughly enjoyed the food. The homemade desserts were to die for. Well worth a visit.
