Very disappointed... Not good when the chef can't cook a steak, very basic, asked for med/rare and it was more med / well done. Starter was served on a cold plate so luke warm and pork was not nice. On a good note wine was nice...

Beautifully presented and tasting food which deserves credit. Portions very small which we appreciate is a trait of finer food but the scallops took this to a new low. After complaint, management dealt with this excellently and overall we loved our night. However, I think you’d really benefit from increasing portions ever so slightly, and for scallops at £15, it should be 3 full large scallops not one chopped up. This starter is the only reason I did not rate 5 stars. Also, for Shropshire, I would perhaps look to Reduce prices by circa 10%. We came on a Saturday night and it was empty. A lot of our friends see the prices and don’t want to come and it would be lovely to have a buzzy atmosphere in the restaurant. Bar men and cocktails very very good and we are incredibly impressed by the Hencote wine.

Thank you for your honest and constructive feedback. We recognised the scallop issue due to a change of seasonal supply on friday delivery for Saturday service, but not the menu price adjustment in conjunction. We have since changed this dish and price. All other dishes are under constant review with a new menu launching later this month. We'd be delighted to welcome you and your feedback again soon.

Superb experience from start to finish. The Somelier was extremely knowledgable but had a lovely manner about her. Lunch was great value for money. Maybe there should be a set menu for the evening too. Just a suggestion as I would love to come in the evening but it is a bit pricey.

We really enjoyed our evening meal at Hencote, a real hidden gem. Master chef quality food & beautiful wine. Friendly informative staff & a relaxing ambience. A bit more expensive than what we would normally pay, but will definitely go back. Thinking of booking a vineyard tour to see & learn more about the place. Can't praise our experience highly enough.

This was our 3rd visit and we were very impressed after the first 2 visits. Unfortunately our latest meal was very disappointing. I tried to order 2 different beers only to be told that they’d run out. After being shown to our table we received some bread but it was only served with plain olive oil so no butter or balsamic. The main was beef which was not cooked as we’d asked (medium rare) and the portion size was very small. It was a shame because on previous visits the menu was a lot more extensive and featured some excellent steaks. The side dishes were also very underwhelming and there were no chips. Unless the menu improves then we will not be going again. Having said that, the staff were excellent, service very good indeed and the views were amazing.

A lovely restaurant, wonderful views and lots of light. The menu was nice, not a big choice but the food was good. All let down by the service. The staff were friendly and nice, however the service was slow, the food could have been hotter and it took 10mins to clear away the plates and a further 15min wait for pudding. Such a shame as this has potential to be very good but the service isn’t good enough to justify the prices.

I was there with all 17 of my work colleagues, out to enjoy ourselves as a team building exercise, and from the moment we arrived at Hencote, we all very much enjoyed the experience. The service was fantastic and the food was stunning. I will no doubt return to Hencote in the not too distant future. Whether its with my staff or with my family and friends. Congratulations Hencote you have created a very special venue.

Very enjoyable visit under the Buy a Gift scheme. Very impressed with the beauty of the vinyard, the impressive modern winery and the spectacular restaurant. Sampled wines which are very creditable for the first production. Will have to try the restaurant another time. All the staff informative, pleasant and helpful.

Lovely setting, good service but unfortunately average food that doesn’t live up to the premium paid. The food was all well cooked, but lacked depth and flavour with combinations that didn’t really work together. So much potential with this place, but it’s not there yet.

The set lunch menu had a good selection to choose from, the food arrived well presented by attentive staff and I certainly enjoyed the atmosphere within the restaurant with the stunning views. In my personal opinion I was impressed with the overall experience and found it to be very good value for money.
