We were staying in the area and had read about the Persian cuisine at Dorrington Old Hall so thought we'd give it a try. It was an interesting experience! When we arrived there were only 2 other couples in the restaurant, one of which left shortly after we arrived. This is an award winning restaurant and we thought it would... More

Fantastic place, lovely friendly staff, excellent food and beautiful old building. We were lucky enough to sample the buffet which was unbelievable value at £16.95 for 3 courses. Plenty of vegetarian choices. Can't recommend this place enough. If you are looking for something a bit different then look no further.

When we arrived we were shown to settees by the bar whist waiting for our table. Server was welcoming and pleasant. Traditional flat bread, hummus and olives to start. These were the... More

A lovely Sunday lunch very different from the usual roast. A 2 course meal consisting of a set of 6 different staters and then 6 different mains and two. Different types of rice. Staff are very diligent and polite. Will definitely be back soon probably for their buffet evening meal

Very good flavourful dishes. If it is your first time, I suggest you try the banquet so that you know what to order next time! The waitress is charming and helpful.

From meeting the owner and chef earlier in the day to being greeted like old friends! A lovely ambience transporting you to an Eastern delight! We opted for the buffet and were able to sample lots of dishes! Lovely combinations of spices made for a wonderful meal. Can't recommend it enough! We'll be back!

We had driven past this a number of times on the way to my parents' in Church Stretton and always been tempted. On this visit we went for Saturday dinner with my parents - and were delighted we did. The restaurant is small but busy and the food is sensational. The chef clearly has a passion for what he does... More

We booked on the basis of online reviews, as part of a weekend visiting the Shrewsbury area. What a brilliant place - really tasty food and fantastic value for money. Not usually keen on puddings but on this occasion we went back for seconds. Highly recommended.
