About Rowton Castle

You’ve just stumbled upon Shrewsbury’s best kept secret.

Dining at Rowton Castle – whether for lunch or dinner – is something that must be experienced, at least once in a lifetime. The restaurant is relaxed, stylish and comfortable. We like to think of it as full of character, yet totally unpretentious. Head Chef Jordan Lewis, along with Chef-Owner Steve Parke and their team, create locally sourced British dishes, all of which are simply cooked, carefully presented and respectful of the changing seasons.

Lunches range from light bites through to hearty classics (Caesar Salad and Fish & Chips, anyone?). When it comes to dinner, you can expect a menu with an assortment of dishes typical of Rowton’s signature style. The dinner menu is of course complemented by a comprehensive wine list, that showcases wines from all over the world.

It is with utter delight that we say Sunday lunches are back... and traditionally, so. Lovers of a Sunday roast will not be disappointed. Each of our mains is served with all of the trimmings (yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, buttered carrots, tenderstem and gravy – this is not the place for jus), and for those feeling super indulgent, we haven’t forgotten the extra sides, or dessert!

We are so looking forward to welcoming you back, or meeting you for the very first time. What are you waiting for!

The venue is following the covid regulations and made us feel both safe and very welcomed. They took time and explained everything to us. Food was amazing and highly recommend this venue not only for the food, the venue, the view but the team are amazing. Looking forward to visiting again soon. The experience was an utter delight.

An incredible stay. A truly beautiful place with wonderful people. We were both super excited at the opportunity to go and stay over at Rowton as we are due to get married here in September 2021 and can’t get enough of the of the place. We indulged ourselves in cocktails (English Garden Gin was particularly fabulous!) a four course meal and a bottle of wine. We stayed in a wonderful room and had a lovely walk around the gardens. The place is magnificent... grand and luxury looking but inside is full of cosy corners and pure charm, a homely feeling. What makes the place even more special is the people. You can tell they have a genuine passion for what they do. A big shout out to the lovely Lewis, he’s amazing! Fair to say we will be requesting him to be present and looking after us on the big day 💜🤍. A wonderful place. Wonderful people. Wonderful memories.

Service was excellent, extremely attentive staff who couldn’t do enough for us. The atmosphere was relaxing and made us feel really festive, especially being seated next to the tree for a welcome drink prior to moving over to our table. Each of us chose different dishes off the menu and we all enjoyed our meals - the salmon and crab tian and Christmas pudding parfait come well recommended! As an aside, the covid safety measures were visibly implemented by all staff and fellow guests in the restaurant, making it a safe environment for us all.

We really enjoyed our Sunday lunch yesterday. The welcome was warm, the food delicious and the dining room looked very elegant. Great effort had gone into the Christmas decorations and the hotel looked beautiful. Social distancing was observed throughout and we felt very safe and comfortable. We’ve been to Rowton before and look forward to visiting again. Thank you all
