Always enjoy. Probably a little expensive for Sunday lunch but quality and presentation make it OK

Had an absolutely lovely time. Menu range was good. The staff were wonderful. If anything was dropped, staff were there straight away. They even washed granddaughters plate. Thank you also to the chefs and back room staff. We will be returning. 😁

This is our 3rd visit and unfortunately 2/3 visits have not been great. The venue is gorgeous, but it is let down by both the kitchen and the service. Our food took just over an hour to arrive when we were 1 of 4 tables, 2 steaks were ordered and they weren’t great, the other 2 main courses were pleasant, however we weren’t offered anything further to drink when seated at our table and again upon leaving I fetched my own coat from the wardrobe. You would really benefit from a Maitre D...

We had a warm welcome as soon as we arrived. The staff were very attentive and knowledgable about the wines. They also gave us a detailed explanation of the view and the various buildings in Shrewsbury. All in all an excellent experience and we will be revisiting, hopefully when the sun shines as it did yesterday!

We have been to this restaurant twice before. Though we loved the setting and decor we had felt the service was poor and the food was mixed (some excellent and some a bit weird or even poor eg the bread). This was the last chance we were going to give the restaurant. We were pleased to find a huge improvement in the service and the food was absolutely wonderful, ( even the bread). The atmosphere was a bit lacking as there were lots of empty tables (unsurprising for the first Sunday in January I suppose). The music was inappropriate for such a stylish venue (60s pop feels more appropriate for a low budget venue). However, we will definitely be back and hope the definite improvements mark the upturn for this stunning venue.

The food was of a very high standard and excellent value for money. The wine list was rather pricey. It was lovely to have a choice of home grown wines though! The view was indeed glorious. The approach to the building was somewhat austere - some wooden cladding on the exterior would really help.

Not as good as our previous three visits. For £30 each we could go to many restaurants for far less and better quality . Disappointed that you dont have an allergy guide as Everywhere we have been in the last year. You could come unstuck unless you meet these requirements. We will not be coming to Sunday lunch again. Other times, not sure. Waiting staff not well informed again for dietary requirements. You have so much great potential, just fell well short.

Roast beef and sweet were both exceptional, the ambience and the view were also exceptional. The accompanying vegetables were less appealing through choice as well as preparation. The cost of the drinks did make a substantial addition to the cost of what otherwise would have been a sensibly priced lunch and might make us think twice about returning or recommending to friends.

was a very good event only feedback was that the choice of food on sharing platters was not easy . Also there were 16 of us for lunch and the long table was really a bit tight for 16 . Kind Regards Annette PA to Danny Glynn

This was our first visit and the whole experience was very welcoming. It was different from our usual Christmas lunch at various restaurants and we were not disappointed. We will definitely go again and are looking forward to attend the wine tasting tours in the near future.

It was our first visit to Hencote and we were not disappointed. From the moment we stepped in through the doors and were welcomed we were made to feel very much at ease and wow what a stunning view! The food was amazing, staff were attentive but not intrusive and very friendly. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to give us an incredible Christmas Day! Can't wait to return!
