We were guests at a wedding here on Saturday- love the venue, as we've visited previously, bar staff in arrival were all lovely and helpful, food was delicious albeit small portions but after eating three courses it was amazing how full we were - compliments to the chefs!! My only niggle was, being called 'darling' by a waitress half my... More

Booked in advance to stay at this hotel after they confirmed they could do gluten free. We booked the loft suite which was verybluxurious but a little spoiled by a constant banging unde the room which literally shook the room (and the free standing bath with me in it!). Reception said they would try and identify the problem, which we... More

This was an excellent evening. The food was of a uniformly high standard, beautifully presented and with fabulous taste. Our waitress, Gwen, was attentive and knowledgable. We will definately return.

I booked my parents in for an afternoon treat for 20/5/17 and they both throughly enjoyed it. They were both pleased with the service from the staff that were working and they were also glad that their dietary needs were able to be met from the kitchen. They both left completely stuffed and relaxed and recommended it to their friends... More

Never eaten here before, but had high expectations particualary with the prices. The food here was average, but we felt certainly not commensurate with the cost of the menu. On the positive side, it decor is lovely and the staff were exceptional. But this as expensive as the dearest in Shrewsbury, but I feel it's certainly not anywhere near the... More

We visited in the 4th May with a group of friends. We sat upstairs due to the size of the table. The food was outstanding, the choice was very good and the service was great. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. I had a veggie starter and the steak, both were amazing and beautifully presented. I highly recommend... More

We were given an option of going to our table or if we preferred relaxing with our drink in the bar area which we opted for and really enjoyed. Our... More

Visited May 4th. Food very good but evening spoilt by bad service. Just untrained young kids serving the tables. Waitress must of dropped at least 6 items on the floor. Poured at £32 bottle of wine into glass without offer of tasting. It's no more than just a pub with food but prices of a high class venue. Go to... More

Our first visit to this venue was unfortunately very disappointing. The food itself was lovely however the service was shocking and let the whole place down. We had our starters before our drinks order was delivered and had to seek bar staff to get assistance on more than one occasion. We had asked for assistance with presenting a birthday cake... More
