Modern Shropshire cooking in Staffordshire

Open all year
Wines by the glass
Wheelchair access

The family-run Shropshire hasn't decamped to Staffordshire, but has stood firm while county boundaries have flowed around it. Its physiognomy is a little different these days, though, with full-length windows looking on to the garden, and gathered curtains in the dining area creating an upscale restaurant ambience. The inspired menus might open with a smoked haddock and watercress tartlet with mashed potato and Indian-spiced aubergine, and lead on to cranberry-stuffed, bacon-wrapped pheasant with swede purée, or well-timed grilled cod with vibrant salsa verde and sautéed greens. At the end comes a light chocolate brownie with white-chocolated honeycomb and malted semifreddo.
