Opposite the pretty church, surrounded by picture-perfect Shropshire hills, is an 18th-century pub that’s been remarkably reinstated; today, the Pheasant is owned by the locals. John is co-op chairman, Mark is chef, Sarah does front of house. The front bar is cosy (cushioned leather sofa and chairs, wood-burner in the chimney breast, rugs strewn on the tiled floor), the second bar is painted a deep chestnut, and the dining room is in an oak-framed extension at the back, its windows filling it with light. There’s an orchard in the beer garden providing fruits for the kitchen, they tune their menus to the seasons and they seek out local suppliers (including lamb from the field next door). The beers include Hobson’s and other Shropshire breweries, the wines are from Bibendum, and if you want to stay the night, you can. Three bedrooms, reached via an external stair, are spotless, sober, spanking new, and decorated in restful colours (whites, greys, olive greens). Bathrooms are immaculate with tip-top showers, one room wakes to splendid views, and we hear the breakfasts are fabulous.

Sarah Cowley & Mark Harris:

  • Set below the ‘blue remembered hills’ of Housman’s poetry, The Pheasant is owned for posterity by the community but run by talented hospitality professionals. A place to relax and enjoy superb Shropshire food, ales and fine wine in a real country local.
  • Ludlow, delightful market town and Slow Food mecca of the UK with arts, music and food festivals, is just 20 mins away. Pop to Bridgnorth (15 mins) and its Severn Valley Railway. See Shrewsbury, birthplace of Charles Darwin, with its half-timbered streets
  • The Ironbridge Gorge, World Heritage Site and cradle of the Industrial Revolution (30 mins) has a dozen superb museums to fascinate you for days. English Heritage and National Trust properties abound: Wroxeter, Attingham Park, Dudmaston and Boscobel House
  • It’s just 2 miles to the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and 4 to Brown Clee hill, the highest point in Shropshire with a 360o view. On a clear day you can see the Welsh mountains, the Peak District, the Malvern Hills and the Cotswolds
  • Roam the spectacular walking country with vistas across old England and the Marches. Footpaths like the Shropshire Way lead you through Corvedale and over Wenlock Edge to the Long Mynd. Or just walk up to Five Springs and drink in the view before dinner.
  • The Shropshire Hills have an unparalleled variety of geological features for such a small area, representing most of the earth’s history. View the diverse landscapes: crags, scarps and valleys and different building materials which lend such character.

"We stayed here for 3 nights last week and thought it quite excellent. This really was a good find, well situated for our purposes and efficiently run."

"Popped in on Sunday for a roast with friends and really enjoyed it. Staff and chef were very accommodating with my picky vegetarian pals and made them roast dinners and gravy even though they weren't on the menu. Really enjoyed the beef, and the yorkshire puddings were brill! Will definitely be back. Thanks!"
