Amazing food with a great atmosphere and excellent service.
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.
A super dinner for six, we all left having enjoyed our evening out, happy, sated, and in great spirits.
We had a fantastic evening.
Excellent food, excellent service. Top stay.
Excellent as always, even let me go off menu and have sausage and mash :)
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.
Wonderful food both very fulfilling and intriguing. Friendly, helpful, informed staff and a lovely, welcoming setting and ambience
Had a fantastic meal with my partner to celebrate her birthday. All the food was delicious and the service was impeccable.
Thankyou for a wonderful couple of nights, we had a great experience
Really good evening - lovely food and drinks and excellent service. Impressed with the COVID security - sensible and safe but unobtrusive.
Food was excellent, service exceptional. The staff were helpful and very friendly. Can't wait to return.
Hannah was our waitress and she was amazing. So friendly and made us feel so welcome! Couldn’t have received better service- thanks Hannah! :)
A very pleasant lunch out with my parents - food good, fire lit and good organised service. Will be back soon, thank you 😊
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
We had a lovely meal at The Lion & Pheasant. The food was delicious with a perfect combination of flavours throughout all the courses. The staff were very efficient, friendly and courteous. We will definitely be back !
Lovely meal, good quality and great service, especially Josh!
We feel privileged and fortunate to have this establishment on our door stop, great ambiance service and quality of food , maintaining excellence in these trying times.
Food was excellent as was the service.
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.
Standard of food and staff excellent
