Having visited previously and enjoyed the food I thought it would be a great venue for a festive get together. Great food, great atmosphere and flowing drinks with close friends. I got that bit right. The service however was an epic fail. On my first visit the service was poor but the food and atmosphere made up for it. Nothing could make up for this visit. Upon arrival we were greeted and asked to sit in the lounge area we obliged and waited for our drinks and we waited a little longer, eventually we received and enjoyed them, we then moved to our table. Having provided the pre order form complete with names I expected name cards with menu choices on the back rather than having to revert to my phone several times, my mistake. A drinks order was placed and delivered fairly quickly and our glasses filled, we were topped up for the final time when our starters were cleared and from then on in we had to attract the attention of the staff to order drinks. We were a large table, boys one end girls the other, the boys drinks flowed and they appeared to have no difficulty getting a drink, the girls however were not asked at the same time if they would like drinks and were left to attract the attention of a member of staff, of which there was a significant number, none of whom were prompt to respond to our requests or deliver the drinks once ordered. The end of the evening quickly arrived and our taxis booked for 11.30 and 12, unfortunately unbeknown to us the bar had shut, I’ve no idea when as we were not asked if we wanted a final drink before the bar closed and so we were stuck, sat there waiting for our taxis with no drinks and a significant number of staff eager to see the back of us and the other diners. I appreciate the staff want to go home but you don’t turn away custom. Unfortunately I would not recommend Hencote

The food at the View was outstanding as usual, but the Stone Bass today was simply sublime ! The best meal yet ! We were celebrating my Dad’s 83rd birthday and the staff made it extra special for him. We will return again and again with standards this high.

The Food we had was very enjoyable with some very nice culinary twists. With such a wonderful view of Shrewsbury (although we didn't see it due to mist and fog) it would be a nice twist to have a display or print out on a table or the seating tables showing the significant points of interest in the view

Loved the restaurant, the menu. The staff were very attentive at the beginning of the evening but no one was interested at the end. We asked a few questions about items on menu but the three waitresses didn’t know anything about the food and had to keep going back to ask about simple things. Wine was fab! Good we felt was over priced sadly as we could have had the same if not slightly better in town for a third of the cost. Shame because otherwise we would have definitely been keen to come again.

An incredible dining experience from start to finish. The ambience was brilliant, fantastic range of drinks available including excellent wines from the vineyard and the food was cooked to perfection (medium rare fillet steak). A busy evening, food was served by attentive staff who were knowledgable about the menu, no waiting time on dishes despite the busy restaurant. I’ll be visiting again many times, next will be lunchtime to take in the beautiful panoramic views from the restaurant, highly recommended!

Really enjoyed the night. Shame they forgot to put the food on your plate that was on the menu. When told they immediately sorted it out. With regard to vegetarian food it would be an idea not to have beetroot in the starter and main when you don’t have a choice. Would definitely go again. Food was delicious and venue was excellent. Wish them well with their new menu.
