Shropshire is a county of beautiful countryside and pretty market towns. The new town of Telford acts as the industrial centre, while the rolling Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides a green oasis in the south. It is one of England's most rural counties, with lots of farmland producing some excellent local ingredients. These include the renowned Shropshire blue cheese and some of the country's best pork. Many Shropshire restaurants focus on these fresh local ingredients, with seasonally changing menus full of tempting dishes. You'll find the best of them here on Quandoo and you can book your chosen table in moments.
There are some outstanding Shropshire restaurants across the county offering a traditional taste of the English countryside. Take Ye Olde Punchbowl Inn at Bridgnorth. This pub has been around for centuries (although with a different name) and continues to deliver firm favourites such as crisp fish and chips, sizzling steaks and juicy burgers. Look out, too, for their ingenious AGA carvery dining experience. Pies are another local tradition and the fidget pie is something of a classic. Made with local ham, cheese, apples, onions and cider, it's now making a bit of a culinary comeback.
There are some great British restaurants in Shropshire but the number of international cuisines on offer might just surprise you. The classic European cuisines of Italy and France are well represented, joined by many popular Indian and Chinese eateries. For lovers of the exotic, meanwhile, Jenko's in Telford offers a Mongolian barbecue to satisfy the appetite of even the hungriest warrior. Over in Shrewsbury, the Istanbul Restaurant and BBQ House brings us the very best of Turkish cooking, including sizzling kebabs and a delicious whole sea bream.
When it's time to ramp up the style, Shropshire's restaurants provide the perfect backdrop. Gather with friends in one of the chic cafe bars of Telford or Shrewsbury for a light bite before heading off to the clubs or make an evening of it at one of the county's fine dining restaurants. We have the most extensive 'menu' of Shropshire restaurants on Quandoo, so take a look, take your pick and take a table at your chosen restaurant.
