Never again; Rude, off-hand, unprofessional female staff, but also a charming and polite young waiter (Cameron) who was doing his best against all odds: The pub was not busy either inside or outside yet we waited 30 minutes before drinks arrived, an hour before we...More

Although we had not booked we were given a warm welcome at the Shrewsbury Arms, and a table found for us. There was a good varied menu, and we were both very happy with our choices. Reasonable prices, great food, friendly staff, plenty of parking.

After enjoying the sunday roasts here last time, we decided to come back again midweek and try the a la carte. I chose the rib combo and my partner had the salmon and dill pasta, both were large portions and extremely tasty.

Visited this pub on a Sunday with family. What a disappointment! The service is terrible. The young girl who served us at the bar (very long blonde hair and a crumbled pink blouse) who I'm assuming held a more senior role as she wasn't wearing...More

The meal was amazing and the staff were friendly as always. Will continue visiting in future. I'd strongly recommend trying the Sunday roast - you'll be glad you did!
