Family lunch, good food, acceptable waiting time, polite staff. Only downside was that we hadn't seen the £8 for 2 courses Saturday offer, you need to order both courses at same time. Would go back and make sure we used that menu as it's a good saving. Thing didn't like was the cost of lemonade and lime, £3.50, £1.10 for... More

Living the free water with my meal, I'm a diabetic and I don't often have a lower enough blood sugar to be able to enjoy a meal and a drink at the same time... water is my drink of choice.

The meals were of a good quality and arrived fairly quickly. The meals were of the grill/burger type and all extremely nice. We really enjoyed them, but even better were the desserts (which quite frankly are to die for!). The bill for three adults, all having dinner and desserts and including drinks came to under £50. Good value for money.... More

Last minute decision to have lunch here to catch up with a friend. Went for the cajun pasta as sounded different to what veggie options are usually available. It was delicious and a nice change. Very reasonably priced.

Sometimes food will be hot, appetising and good value for money. Other times I've had terrible meals here, stone cold, curdled food, burnt and dry. Need to clean flies out of low hanging light fittings, they dangle by your face over the table. Tables sticky and furniture well worn, in need of an update and deep clean. Have also experienced...

The Oxon Priory, on the outskirts of Shrewsbury, is a pub/restaurant that we have visited many times over the past decade. The latest 'reinvention' sees it branded as a Hungry Horse restaurant, which will mean different things to different people; for us, it means good value, good choice and (usually) pleasant surroundings. Our most recent visit to The Oxon confirmed... More

Went last Sunday for lunch, was looking forward to a nice roast... not what we got!! The meat is not a roast joint, but packaged in a pouch in gravy (was told this by staff when I asked how well cooked the beef was) more veg than anything else and was very hard! No roast potatoes, had to ask for... More
