Sunday shared roast platter is good value for money but disappointed that ham had large amount of fat attached & chicken had bones inside. Would not have ordered if I'd known as I dislike chicken on the bone when eating out. Good amount of food & good bowl of mixed vegetables to share. 5 choices of meat to choose from.... More

Attentive friendly staff, generous tasty food and a roaring fire. Loses a star for not offering sauvignon blanc by the glass; only pinot or chardonnay. Every other pub / restaurant does

We were travelling from Shropshire to York on Saturday late afternoon/evening and found this fantastic pub by chance. The food was hearty pub food and very reasonably priced for the portion sizes served.

We both had a 3 course lunch at £11.95. Each course was better than the last, the puddings were fantastic! Think we met all the (front) staff in there and all of them were very pleasant and helpful and made us feel very welcome. It was a lovely setting with a log burner and most importantly it was dog friendly.... More

There was a group of 13 of us 7 adults and 6 children. We had booked a private room for Sunday afternoon lunch which was fantastic as it allowed the children some space to themselves. We ordered the Sunday sharing platter which consisted of every type of roast meat you could want and all the trimmings. We ordered an 11... More

Visited here last night. The meal was excellent - Pork Shoulder was beatiful in peppercorn sauce and the chips were fantastic :) My partners steak was cooked to perfection. Great beer too. We have visited a few times recently and really enjoyed the meals and ambience.

Recently visited the Shrewsbury Arms with family and friends to celebrate my 'special' Birthday. We had booked the small function room and were told when booking they would decorate the room for us. We took balloons, banners and the Birthday cake on the Saturday morning and the room looked lovely when we arrived on the Saturday evening. They had even... More

We have been visiting this pub/restaurant for many years and it has gone from good to bad and back again many times so we were wondering what we would find this time. It has been over a year since our last visit and things have improved, (is this as a result of TripAdvisor?) We arrived early after booking the day... More
