Review: Shropshire Star

Celebrating the very best of local produce, The Raven serves up fine food in stylish surroundings.

Consistently holding two AA rosettes, The Raven ranks alongside a starry group of loved and respected Shropshire restaurants –

Few restaurants in Shropshire pay as much attention to provenance as The Raven. Its ingredients are delightful, celebrating the best of peak condition, in-season produce. The kitchen’s love of great ingredients led in 2014 to the launch of an offshoot – The Marketplace – which is situated in an old cart shed, adjacent to The Raven. It opens Tuesday to Saturday to complement the existing array of independent retailers in the town by selling an array of larder products. Customers can enjoy tea, Shropshire coffee, a hot soup of the day, homemade artisan bread, savoury tartlets and sweet treats.

It also stocks fresh fish – at different times of year, there’s mackerel, red mullet, hake, sea bass, salmon, scallops, cod, haddock, tuna, brill, monkfish, prawns, mussels, lobsters and soft shell crabs. And season supplies of fresh vegetable and fruits are also available, from super healthy flower sprouts to star fruit and vibrant rainbow chard to multi-coloured heritage carrots. Such ingredients find their way into the dishes cooked by The Raven’s chefs
