My partner and I stopped here while visiting Church Stretton and we were not disappointed. The lunch time food was exceptional! Staff were very friendly Food was very reasonably priced. We will definitely be eating here again.

Lovely pub and great food, Can't say the same for the young girl behind the bar, Too busy talking to male friends rather than serving dining customers, I won't be dining again if this person is working.

We've been visiting Housmans since it opened, it was certainly something that the village needed. I didn't really enjoy drinking there much, it's a bit cramped and the tables are really for eating at. The new owner has opened an Ale House across the road...More

Informal style restaurant & bar with an a la carte menu changed three times on average each week, together with a selection of tapas style grazing boards. Wherever possible local fresh ingredients are used and we buy our meat from local butchers.
