Restaurant was slightly cold upstairs but didn’t stop us enjoying an excellent value for money meal. Would have liked one more slice of beef each as it was so tender and cooked perfectly.

Contemporary style within old building works really well - very aesthetically pleasing. The place gives a feeling of quality. The Loft room in the old timbered part of the building was delightful. Dinner was great - we were very pleased to find out that Friday meant there were lots of fish options on the menu. The food looked great on the plate and the flavours did not disappoint. The young staff were enthusiastic and friendly. A brilliant find!

The food was superb, the service was excellent , friendly without being over bearing. With a laidback relaxed atmosphere. An all round first class dining experience, one of the very best in Shrewsbury.

There could have been more chicken in the bap I had and I didn’t like the tartar sauce on it. Tatar sauce is more fitting wth fish. The sweet potato chips were very nice. The service was very good.

Had another amazing meal at The Lion and Pheasant. We had our wedding reception in the Crystal room a couple of years ago and as I mentioned this in the booking, they made sure we hade a lovely table in the same room. Can't fault the evening, food, drink or service.

Great food, couldn’t fault starter or main. Did ask if we could push our reservation back slightly by 15 minutes, was told ‘absolutely not’ as they were too busy and yet they didn’t seat us until after this time anyway..... rather disappointing and could have been handled better by front of house.

Used to be our favourite place to eat in town. Always great food, fantastic service and atmosphere. Pricey but worth it. We went mid week for a family dinner, unfortunately we did not have the best experience. Starters were very average, I had the tuna sashimi, which I have had before. This time the tuna was tasteless, certainly not a fresh cut like sashimi should be and certainly no where near as good as the last time I had it. The rest of the group chose soup which was good. The most disappointment came from the mains. The only warm things on the plates were the chips, and even these did not have the same double fried crisp outside to them as normally they would. I think they had plated up all the mains quickly, and then left them on the side (in which time they all cooled down), then before service they added the chips. Yes, we should of mentioned this as the time, but we were with our young children and did not want to wait for the mains to all be redone. Flavour wise, it was all their, just a shame they were all cold on service. We ordered the children ice cream for desert, after waiting over 30 minites, we cancelled the order as it was getting too late. Clearly something had changed, maybe the chef was away, but when you are paying £200+ for a meal it is a shame that the same high standard can not be met. At paying I told the waitress about the mains being cold and she went to speak to the manager. They offered a discount of a couple of drinks. In hindsight I should of complained further, as the meal was not worth £200 at all. Don’t know when we will return. Such a shame.

Great food just a little nervous out front, it was pretty quiet in the restaurant (we always eat early) so difficult to judge atmosphere. My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed it and will defineatly recommend to friends.

The only negative comment that I can make is that we were not given enough time between courses, felt a little rushed. Apart from that couldn't fault the evening.

We enjoyed our stay. The staff were friendly and efficient and the room was adequate but a little small. Breakfast and dinner were good quality and well cooked but I think dinner could have been a little more imaginative. The highlight was the exceptional Violet Pink Gin!
