New Owners

The bar has a good choice of local real ales, a new wine list reveals sensibly priced and eclectic wines with many available by the glass.
My eyes were drawn to a top shelf above the till with possibly the best selection of Cognacs, Armagnac and Calvados in Shropshire!!
We have eaten there a couple of times now, for a starter you must try the Charcuterie sharing platter, served on a wooden palette brimming with quality meats, even smoked pigeon and home made piccalilli, balsamic pickles and pate, humous & grilled artichokes and more
