4 Castle Foregate, Shropshire, Shrewsbury, SY1 2DJ [Map]
The family-run Castelo Hotel is located in Castle Foregate, close to the Shrewsbury train station and ideal to explore the town's many historic attractions. This friendly refuge charms people with its simple yet smart surroundings and warm and friendly service. Ten bedrooms are comfortable and well-equipped, providing guests with a relaxing home from home atmosphere.
The restaurant offers an exciting blend of Mediterranean and traditional British meals through its seasonal menus. Relax with a light snack at the bar and enjoy a glass of wine from their drinks list that offers a wide choice from the Old World.
Ellesmere Road, Shrewsbury, SY4 3AF [Map]
Located just outside Shrewsbury, the splendid Albright Hussey Manor Hotel provides a happy alternative to the often crowded streets and car parks of the town itself. Surrounded by carefully tended gardens spread over four acres, the whole atmosphere of the family-owned refuge is comfortable, relaxed and unfussy without being uncaring.
Twenty-six ensuite bedrooms that have helped the manor earn an AA four star rating offer magnificent views over the Shropshire countryside. While some are situated in the main house others can be found in the more modern wing.
The Subbiani family also run an excellent AA rosette dining room called the Moat Room Restaurant, taking full advantage of what the seasons bring. Dine on dishes such as Cornish fresh crab meat salad with potato bread and crab bisque, and grilled escalope of loin and confit of English Rose veal with wild mushrooms and gratin dauphinoise potatoes amidst oak panels, huge open fireplaces and moulded Tudor beams.
The cocktail bar is a lovely place for a well-deserved end of day drink.
8 Market Place, Shifnal, TF11 9AZ [Map]
Shifnal's charming market place is home to Fennels, a cosy traditional restaurant that is popular with locals and visitors thanks to its relaxed ambience and young chef Dan Vasey's eclectic cooking.
The restaurant has enjoyed a chequered history; nothing to do with the food, which has always been interesting. However, things have changed for the better and Fennels should now be set fair for a secure future, creating something special in a town with many restaurants, but few of much distinction.The intimate dining environment pleases those who love old world charm, and you can trust Chef Vasey to offer a range of dishes created with passion and flair. Choices could include a fillet of Hereford beef on potato and fennel with a black truffle sauce, and roast venison loin on chorizo mash with red onion marmalade.
The wine list offers a fine choice of well-priced numbers.
International, Modern British
Welsh Walls, Oswestry, SY11 1AW [Map]
In 1841 Thomas Penson built Walls as a school for the young of Oswestry. Following a brilliant conversion in 1993 his work lives on, now offering entertainment and good food for, shall we say, people of all ages. There is a country house feel around, assisted by the elegant grand piano that comes into its own at Sunday lunchtimes in particular.
As befits a former seat of learning starters are referred to as the Foundation course and may include pan-fried peppered fillet of salmon served on a horseradish potato cake accompanied by soft, garden-herb crème fraiche finished with a red pepper and chilli oil, or a delicious home-smoked chicken terrine wrapped in ham that has been air-dried and accompanied by a marinated apricot and kumquat chutney with lemon and basil oil and toasted walnut bread.
For the Main Event perhaps the braised half shoulder of lamb, Welsh of course, with honey roasted root vegetables and potatoes in a red wine, redcurrant and mint sauce or the seared calves liver on a black pudding and spring onion mash with a sherry and roast shallot sauce, finished with roasted parsnips. You may have difficulty ignoring the baked dark chocolate and orange pudding, served with a generous helping of clotted cream, in which case consider the caramelized mango and passion fruit tartlet topped with a lime sorbet.
Service is friendly and the range of wines extends round the world. House wines kick off at £10 a bottle, or £2.75 a glass. Sunday lunches are a real speciality with three decent courses for £13.95 and a wonderful atmosphere - people travel for miles.
1 Newbridge Road, Ironbridge, Telford, TF8 7BA [Map]
The Golden Ball dates back to 1728 and is the oldest licensed premises in the Ironbridge Gorge. It started operations some fifty years before the world famous Iron Bridge opened in 1781; and although the bridge has served its purpose and is now a World Heritage Site, The Golden Ball is still going strong; welcoming people who wish to enjoy a meal or a drink, or stay a night or two in its bedrooms.
The restaurant is situated in the original brew house and has a wealth of character and charm. Their menu is updated daily and incorporates local and seasonal produce where possible. Large chalkboards in the dining room and bar display dishes such as homemade chicken liver pâté served with granary toast, and a hearty main course of wild duck and local pheasant breasts, oven-roasted and served with a mixed berry sauce, Parmentier roast potatoes and buttered green vegetables or Cornish sea bass fillets on a bed of creamy leeks.
The bar area offers real ales, draught and bottled cider and a range of imported continental beers.
