Had a lovely Sunday lunch at the Shrew today. As per previous visits we had the sharing platter which we really enjoy. You get a good variety of meats, 5 different veg (great when you've got fussy eaters) and jugs of gravy so you can have as much or as little as you want. After our last visit I commented... More

We eat at the Shrewsbury on a regular basis, but never again. The service tonight was utterly appalling. An hour and a half to get the main course. Forgot the drinks order. Forgot the cutlery and left us with half the meal which went cold. The overly-made-up girls waiting on we're too busy laughing and joking, playing with their hair... More

We booked an evening table last Sunday and despite being. Virtually the last people in the pub on a Sunday night, it was a really good experience. The setting and atmosphere of the pub is first class and was matched by the food. I had a roast and despite there only being beef left, it was tender and tasty. The... More

A wonderful setting, very good food served with interest and a smile (very rare these days). Reasonable prices with table settings that would not disgrace much more expensive premises. My wife and l shall certainly go back to dine again.

Nice pub inside and out. Our party of 13 was seated at the bottom of the pub on our own. Presented with our menus and left for ages before anyone took our order, when the food finally arrived we had very few chips had to ask for more then we got two huge bowls full, never asked if we wanted...

This place is amazing for the old style traditional Sunday roast and the rest of the menu is amazing. The staff have always been so helpful and very pleasant. So we decided to have our engagement party here with close friends and family. From day one with booking the room nothing was to much trouble. Anything I wasn't sure about... More
