Latest Review: The Lion and Pheasant   Shrewsbury ~  “An absolute antidote to extravagant ostentation” by Philippe Boucheron for ETM (c) Spring 2011

Today far too many people consider a display of extravagant ostentation by hotels and restaurants as a sure sign of excellence.  At last I have found the perfect antidote to this vulgarity at the most understated hostelry in the Midlands. Welcome to the Lion & Pheasant in Shrewsbury, an old coaching inn beside the English Bridge that has become a most stylish townhouse hotel with a truly fine-dining restaurant.

Its present incarnation is due to two highly professional and enthusiastic artists and a dedicated team of professionals; interior designer and architect Rachael Chidlow, whose Shropshire-based mother Dorothy owns the hotel, and chef  Alan Dann whose CV covers leading English and French restaurants who between them posses no less than 18  Michelin stars, both supported by General Manager Jim Littler and his dedicated team who have all worked very hard to achieve such levels of excellence throughout.  Rachael, Alan and team have created a boutique hotel with an outstanding restaurant.  It is a haven of excellence where simplicity sets the style in both décor and cuisine.
