Over the past 12 months we have been several times and neither myself or anyone else in out group has had a bad meal. Have tried many other restaurants in and around Shrewsbury and this has got to be one of the best and now our go-to restaurant! The menu is fairly small however I'm still always stuck for choice...

Beautiful views across a bend in the River Severn. Menu extensive and traditional with its own unique twist. Order a pie and they put your name on it to prove they baked it! Very comfortable and accommodating. Service prompt and polite Good value.

Visited Saturday lunch time, party of 18. We had booked and ordered choices in advance. We had 3 tables in the conservatory which was lovely. The meal and service was very good. The children's menu was very reasonable, and wasn't all chips and nuggets. Food is not expensive, vegetables always cooked just right, and plenty of them, menu is kept... More

Apart from the location there's nothing to recommend this establishment. The service is shoddy at best with tables left un-cleared. Food is basic 'gastropub' but missing the 'gastro'. Very basic pies, chilli con carne and a bit of fish...all pretty uninspiring. Local scuttlebutt is that this place is up for sale which, if true, might explain the general absence of... More

We've popped in for a quick snack on many occasions and always found the food and beer to be first class. We've usually been outside overlooking the river Severn but today with our two grandchildren we were at a sunny table inside with January sun streaming through the window. The children had sausage, beans and chips and we shared a... More

Very tasty and varied menu, with at least 6 choices for each course. Something for everyone. The Stilton & mushroom pancake was lovely, followed up with a chicken & leek pie (with my name in pastry on the top!) or cod mornay plus vegetarian option AND specials on the board. Then on to honey & ginger beer ice cream or... More

For consistently good food and service this is a lovely restuarant to visit and the chocolate torte is to die for! I have been here several times and have never been disappointed. It is a short distance from Shrewsbury and yet you feel you are miles away from anywhere as you look over the river- different in all seasons of... More

New Year's Eve meal, excellent food and table service - polite, friendly and all our orders were correct. Absolutely no complaints about the fresh and tasty food which came nicely presented and good portions. The only complaint is when we went to pay the person on the till saw us but firstly ignored us and then went to serve what... More

Just got back from a really pleasant visit. If I'd taken any notice of the negative reviews on this place I'd have missed out on a friendly reception ( from the so called grumpy owner) an excellent meal served by a group of really sweet and helpful young ladies in really comfortable surroundings. Don't be misled, go there, you won't... More
