About The View All-Day Dining & Drinks at Hencote

The View, Restaurant, Bar & Balcony at Hencote is re-opening on 4th July!

At Hencote we want you to come up and kick back. Whether you're joining us for drinks or a bite to eat, our new All-Day Dining & Drinks Menu helps you do just that.

Come to the View to indulge in our selection of international wines and small plates, relaxing in great company whilst taking in the sunset. There's no better place to spend your Summer.


Due to the pressures of the existing climate and government guidance imposed, we will be implementing new operating procedures at Hencote. These are detailed below and include:

- All-day dining menu with pre-orders required 24 hours before arrival
- Table service only
- Maximum table size of 6 guests
- Three sittings throughout the day
- Tables available in the View interior for parties of two to six guests
- Tables available on the Balcony for parties of four or six guests
- No cash accepted on site

Table Sitting Times:
Due to our reduced capacity in order to meet the guidelines on social distancing, we have introduced three sittings throughout the day. If you would like to join us for lunch, please search for availability at 12pm, in the afternoon at 3:30pm and in the evening at 7pm.

Lunch Sitting:
12pm to 3pm
12:15pm to 3:15pm
12.30pm to 3.30pm

Afternoon Sitting:
3:30pm to 6:30pm

4pm to 7pm

Dinner Sitting:

Food Pre-Order Required:
We will be sending you our menu with your booking confirmation email to request your food pre-order for your table. Please provide your pre-order no later than 24 hours before your booking. Without a pre-order we cannot guarantee food service for you on the day.

Food Service Times:
We please request that you arrive in good time for your booking so that your food can reach you in a timely manner and you have a relaxed, enjoyable experience at Hencote.

For all bookings inside the Restaurant, your food will be served around 30 minutes after your booking time.

For example, a reservation at 12pm will receive food at 12:30, a reservation at 3:30pm will receive food at 4pm and a sitting at 7pm will receive their food at 7:30pm

For all bookings on our Balcony, your food will be served in a one-to-two hour period following your sitting times.
For example, a reservation at 12pm will receive food between 1pm – 2pm, a reservation at 3:30pm will receive food between 4:30 – 5:30pm and a reservation at 7pm will receive food between 8pm – 9pm.

If you have a preferred time for your food service, please indicate so in your booking notes when making a booking and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Minimum Spend Request:
On Saturdays we will be requesting a minimum spend of £120 for our Balcony tables sitting. This will be secured by taking your card details at the point of booking; you will not be charged prior to your reservation date except under the terms of our cancellation policy.

I have been a butcher by trade, unfortunately the steak wasn’t worth the money you charge but didn’t make a fuss as my partner’s birthday. This was my first visit although my partner had been before.

Beautiful place, nice food. A little disappointed we didn't get the best table when we booked for a belated 60th birthday celebration, but otherwise no complaints and will be visiting again

Our chicken was pink, however we were told that this was because it was the thigh of the chicken which is usually dark meat. Overall the food was nice, staff were pleasant and helpful, and the view was stunning. Would go back for drinks soon.

Lovely staff and the view of Shrewsbury is magical. We had a lunch and the wine tour, staff were attentive and friendly. Really enjoyed the wine tour, Gavin was informative and very passionate about the wine.

The service was very good, the waiting staff were charming, and the food was good rather than exceptional. We were surprised not to be able to buy wine by the glass other than the Hencote's own product, and we found the house rose poor and the house white average. But on a glorious sunny day it was lovely to sit looking over the vineyard to the town beyond. That's the restaurant's USP, and it makes the most of it.

We had to pre order food not knowing what time we would eat, as it happened it came out as soon as we got there, you should allow more time, we asked for the main meal to come out in an hour, our choice but the food was very dry, like it had been kept warm until we asked for it. We expected better service, the view is fantastic!!!

One thing I found rather strange about our visit to the restaurant was that we had been given our starters almost immediately and then 5 minutes later our mains arrived. We were literally only a few mouthfuls in? We didn’t send them back but by the time I got round to my main it was tepid. It seems a little strange
