We have visited Housmans for the past two Saturdays, first with my family then with friends last Saturday. On both occasions the staff were welcoming and friendly, the food was superb, the dishes were altered to the tastes of the friends we took, we were looked after extremely well. There is a wide choice of food; tapas, pizza, steaks, fish,... More

My partner Claire and I enjoyed drinks for a pleasant hour or so in this bar/restaurant which is set in spacious yet intimate and comfortable surroundings. Whilst we didn't eat here, the menu looked good and food being served to other customers looked delicious. I feel sure we will return again and enjoy and take advantage of the beautiful food...

It's always hard to find decent places in the UK on our wedding anniversary in early January - most restaurateurs understandably want a break after New Year. This café/wine bar doesn't look special from the street but the food is surprisingly good. The lunchtime menu is mainly tapas and sharing platters - we had the deal which gave us four... More

Church Stretton has 3 Chinese, a couple of Indians, fish and chips and pubs with food, but I stumbled into this place and was surprised by both the quality and quantity of food. In fact I over ordered because I was very hungry after a long day's walk. Atmosphere and staff were good too

Popped in here for lunch after a walk. The place is warm and the service staff are very friendly. Had the sharing "grazing" menu for 2 which is bread + 4 small plates + Spanish potatoes. The food is fresh and lovely modern interpretations of classics. Portion size was generous too.

Discovered this place last Saturday and even thought we were quite late for lunch we were made very welcome and has some very tasty paninis with very tasty chips and the dressing on the salad was excellent. Great atmosphere, lovely food and excellent customer services. Will be back.

Our 'normal' cafe was closed and this was the first alternative we came too. The atmosphere was welcoming, and there was an acoustic musician playing. Nice combination or bar and restaurant, there seemed to be lots of regulars. We went with the tapas-style menu of sharing plates. Excellent cold meats. I particularly liked the fish cakes, he loved the duck... More

On our previous visit we all opted for the tapas but we were drawn to the specials board hence our return visit Three of us chose from the board venison steak and beef chow mein. The other two in our party opting for the... More

Checked out Housmans on tripadvisor and was very impressed. I made the booking for a table for two with a really pleasant man. On arrivale my Wife and I were taken straight to our table, through a busy cafe/bar with great atmosphere. Drinks ordered and a very quick service. I had looked at the menu on-line and we had already... More

Lunch with my brother from the USA, his first visit to the old cottage we've just bought in Church Stretton, so I thought we would go to Housmans as I had been before a few times. Lovely atmosphere, great food, great value, and very good service. My brother reckons smoked salmon is only worth eating in the UK, and his... More
