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.

Not sure what to expect. Booked via phone (would recommend booking) and the person taking the call was pleasant and helpful Restaurant was well laid out and decorated. 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! Looking forward to checking out recipes... More

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.

While staying in a nearby village we thought we should try out this Persian restaurant, Dorrington Halls. We have never had Persian food before and opted for the banquet 'taster plate' selection. We had 6 taster starters with a wonderful light nan type bread and then 5 or it may have been 6 main course plates served with rice. The... More

Every visit things just somehow get even better. There are some spicier options added to the buffet and other dishes remain fresh and distinctly Lal's. The puddings have been improved upon and are not to be missed. Always friendly and welcoming. Love this place!

Persian influenced fusion Cuisine - first for the county - at the elegant Black and White, timber framed, building that dates back to the 13th Century; contemporary atmosphere, with a present-day décor, pleasing to the eye. Cuisine renowned for its elaborate rice dishes, delicious kababs, nourishing soups and hearty stews. Persians delicately flavour their food with herbs, spices and dried fruits. A variety of nan-like breads supplement rice.
