About The View at Hencote
The View at Hencote sits atop the Hencote estate with fantastic views over the Hencote Vineyard, Shrewsbury and the Shropshire hills.
Partnering locally-sourced produce with bold, international style cuisine and authentic cooking on our open-fire charcoal grill, the View at Hencote offers a unique culinary experience in Shropshire.
Open not only for restaurant reservations, relax in our lounge or wine & cocktail bar with views into the Hencote winery where our award-winning wine is produced or sit by the pizza counter to enjoy a pizza made in our Italian rotary pizza oven.
Birthday treat for the wife and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, Thanks and will be back !
Had a fantastic time here celebrating my sister's 30th. The staff were amazing, they helped prepare the table and were attentive all night. Food and wine and cocktails were delicious too!! It really was a night she will remember for a long time. Thank you!!
Fantastic views, friendly helpful staff & the food was excellent. Faultless experience.
We had an excellent evening and thoroughly enjoyed the offerings of the tasting menu which was balanced, perfectly cooked and imaginatively presented. The staff were helpful and engaging. I do have what I hope is a constructive criticism; in a venue aspiring to such standards I would expect to find proper linen napkins, not small paper ones?
This was our second visit to the restaurant, first time was a friday evening and can not fault anything which is why we decided to come back. Whilst I can not fault the food that we had, the service was not up to scratch, considering we were the only table there and there were more than enough staff present, we had to ask for more drinks and nobody even came and asked if we were happy with our food. I have to say I will not be returning again, it is not a cheap place and thus expect a good level of service which not this occasion was not received.
We had a wonderful experience at The View restaurant where the service was top quality, unfortunately the food was not. My partner who is a vegetarian had what can only be described as a bowl of carrot baby food which was bland, tasteless and cold and very expensive for £23. When the waiter was informed the feedback from the chef was that they agreed with my comments and would investigate further but they continued serving the dish to other customers. My steak however, was one of the best I have eaten, top quality. The desserts were very nice and tasty. Overall an enjoyable experience but a little bit of extra customer service and not charging us for the vegetarian dish would have gone a long way. They clearly need to improve on their vegetarian option.
This was the eighth time visiting the View; it is a fantastic “go to “ destination vene; our favourite. I have recommended to ten other couples, six of whom have already been and rebooked; you have the balance spot on, food is amazing, beautifully cooked and presented. Your staff are knowledgable and friendly and Sahara and Donna make us feel at home each time we come. See you very soon Alex and Yvonne
The food was amazing, the service was spot on, the view was beautiful, the music created a great atmosphere, and the bill was definitely value for money. Altogether making my mothers day perfect. We have booked for Fathers day too. Such a beautiful setting right on our doorstep. Congratulations!
Beautiful setting for a meal, quality of food and creativity is second to none. Definitely a memorable experience at The View!
Quality of food excellent. Portion sizes way too small. Service good. Booking very easy. Over priced considering small portions served. To have a £400 bill for a table of 4 and come away feeling hungry is a little disappointing. That said ... the food served was of highest quality. I had a roasted cauliflower started which was fantastic but why so small? The 'to-be-seen' venue in Shrewsbury .... special occasions only for us.
Fabulous evening at Hencote, very different and stylish!!
I bought the wine tour for my husbands birthday followed by lunch at the grill/bar. I had heard both good and bad reviews but I like to make my own judgement. From the minute we walked in the waiting staff were friendly and the decor beautiful and spacious...and that was just our initial impression. We were met by Sahara, Hencote’s Sommelier, who was really friendly and of course extremely knowledgeable, I loved all 4 of Hencote’s wines and bought 3 bottles for home. We only had pizzas but stayed most of the day enjoying the atmosphere and view. Well done everyone. We’ll be back!!
We love eating at this restaurant, the food is always good and the cocktails are great too. The atmosphere in the restaurant is exceptional and their own wines are so drinkable! The only down side is that we are a little disappointed that the menu has been cut and there appears to be no longer a taster menu
The chef on the pizza bar was absolutely amazing. He made mine and my boyfriends night by how friendly he was.
We went on the tour of the winery and had a wine tasting before our lunch. Sahara, the sommelier was our guide. She was is knowledgeable about her subject and the tour and tasting were very enjoyable. Our Sunday lunch after the tour was wonderful. The food was well presented, well cooked and extremely tasty. The service from all the waiting staff was 5 star as well.
Amazing venue, stunning views .. service, food spot on.. I am looking forward to returning later in the year for a special birthday of mine 🥳😁
Had a fabulous lunch experience . The staff were attentive and friendly without pestering . Nothing was too much trouble . The ambience was fantastic and being a lovely sunny day the view over Shrewsbury was stunning . The restaurant is very tastefully decorated and a lovely place to relax .. The food was first class amd of course the wine . Thank you to all the staff . My mum had a fantastic birthday lunch and you made her day and mine !
Lovely venue, lovely atmosphere. More variety needed for food and cocktails. Service good. Would recommend
The Staff particularly need a mention. They are efficient, pleasant and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble.
We chose a perfect day as the sun was shining and the views were at their best. Meal was enjoyable although I could not describe it as particularly memorable. Choices were too limited which would prevent a return trip. Service was mostly good although there was an undue delay of above half an hour before our sweet order was taken. Would only return if the menu is enlarged and portions slightly enlarged.
The menu is very confusing and in my opinion very overpriced. Fantastic position great decor and a real feeling of opulence but wouldn’t go often as too expensive.
Loved our guided tour. Beautiful setting and fabulous wine. Guide and host were excellent we will definitely be coming back here again
Very slow service to start. Despite being one of only two tables, we had to call someone over to order drinks. Over 40 minutes from arrival to get our starters. Would have expected better for the price!! Food was very good and view just amazing.
Simply stunning venue and atmosphere, would happy return and recommend. Would be even better if the waiting staff could talk through what we are eating as they present the food, other than that enjoyed thourly.
Service was a four star as it was a little on the slow side. The staff are perfectly friendly and do check to make sure everything is ok, however, the time it took to get the food was on the slower side - which for us wasn't a problem as we were enjoying the view and the atmosphere. We went at lunchtime and the food was tasty and the restaurant a lovely place to be. We would definitely go back.
