The waitress was fantastic. Great attitude and attention to service without being intrusive. Food was of a really good standard. Only area of improvement would be the lack of availability for special requests; no one answered the phone despite my attempts to contact the restaurant numerous times.

It’s a lovely setting. However, food is very expensive for the standard and quality of food. Not a great deal of choice on the menu duck was very under cooked if not raw. Service was good. Nice place for a drink but wouldn’t use for a meal.

Really good evening - lovely food and drinks and excellent service. Impressed with the COVID security - sensible and safe but unobtrusive.

Excellent food, attentive service that didn't feel rushed in a nicely set out room. The atmosphere was impeded by the social distancing and masking requirements but this did not prevent us having a lovely lunch. A birthday treat from the restaurant for my wife was most welcome. Not the cheapest in Shrewsbury but one of the best.

Excellent service. Struggled to find our way in a note on the door might have helped telling us to go around to the side door but everything else made up for that

I was impressed with the COVID measures in place and felt quite safe in the restaurant. On the whole a lovely meal, with the scallops dish being quite heavenly, but a couple of disappointments that “took away” from the overall experience. The duck was very good and Cooke perfectly but with a couple of bites being impossible for me to chew due to gristle, added to this the potato dish was far to salty ( and I am someone who enjoys salt in my meal). The largest disappointment had to be the “Lemon Meringue “. Silly me, I had assumed it was a lemon meringue pie but no where was there any mention of deconstructed. I thought the bits and pieces mentioned on the menu were accompaniments as there was not actually a mention of lemon, maybe because there were just tiny boobs of it. I thought it was pretentious and really not one thing or another, with lots of bits and pieces that didn’t seem to tie together totally. The raspberry sorbet accompanying it had turned to soup before I had chance to sample. The quenelles of clotted cream did not add to the dish. The restaurant did not seem particularly bothered that I felt the description on the menu had misled me, or the fact I was disappointed. It was also interesting to note that the tables on either side had sent dishes back to the kitchen - one because it was “stone cold” another because it was not cooked as requested. This all adds up to making you question the real quality of this restaurant.
