Circumstances meant that we were in Shrewsbury for a significant birthday on Monday evening. Most fine dining restaurants were closed on Monday evenings but the L&P was open and had good reviews so it seemed a good option. Hmm. The food was good but..... I had mentioned the birthday when booking but there was no acknowledgement of it during the... More

Latish booking for Sunday lunch for three was not a problem. Narrow vehicular access, but opens out into really spacious car park. Outdoor seating area and two entrances into a very chic establishment,with modern furnishings and tableware. Staff were friendly and helpful; menu varied enough for the occasion and superb wine list, including Sauternes, Tokaj, and Canadian IceWine! The only... More

My first meal at The Lion and Pheasant although I have stayed a few times in the hotel. First course of Rabbit Tortellini was fine but lacked a bit of omph. The main of slow cooked cod was great. A very good wine list and excellent service.

The Lion and Pheasant is a nice place in terms of decor/ambience and the food was tasty. However, the reason for the poor rating is the extremely meagre sized portions. We ordered a three course meal each at £25.00 per head. The amount of food offered for each course wouldn't have kept a sparrow alive. We came out hungry and... More

Visited as group of 7 for a belated works' afternoon tea. We had originally booked for a Christmas date, but had to move the date and the hotel were very accommodating of this. The afternoon tea was lovely, beautiful fresh scones, clotted cream and jam, delightful dainty, tasty cakes and small sandwiches. Plenty to eat and all very nice. The... More

I booked the Lion and Pheasant for a Valentine's night meal at £45 a head, suffice to say that the price reflected the standard! On arrival we were sat next to the steps leading out from the bar, however we didn't have to raise our voices and were in front of a roaring fire! Warm bread and Amuse bouche of... More
