Our Inspector's view

Housed in the orangery extension of a restored Georgian pile, Forelles restaurant enjoys views of the rolling Shropshire hills, which makes for a wonderful backdrop to the classic country-house cuisine. As you might hope, it’s built on pedigree materials sourced from within a 30-mile radius (apart from seafood which comes from Devon and Scotland). Begin with an inventive goats' cheese ice cream and mousse with intense parsley and cider gels before moving on to rolled belly of lamb with aubergine, sweetbread, ricotta and courgette. A millefeuille layered with raspberry, rose, lychee and almond is a beautifully constructed finale.

About the area

Discover Shropshire

Perhaps nowhere else in England will you find a county so deeply rural and with so much variety as Shropshire. Choose a clear day, climb to the top of The Wrekin, and look down on that ‘land of lost content’ so wistfully evoked by A E Housman. Peer through your binoculars and trace the course of Britain’s longest river as the Severn sweeps through the county, from the Breidden Hills to Wyre Forest, slicing Shropshire in two. To the north is a patchwork of dairy fields, hedgerows, copses and crops, broken at intervals by rugged sandstone ridges such as Grinshill or Nesscliffe, and dissected by a complex network of canals.

Spilling over the border into neighbouring Cheshire and North Wales is the unique meres and mosses country, with serenely smooth lakes glinting silver, interspersed with russet-tinged expanses of alder-fringed peat bog, where only the cry of the curlew disturbs the silence. South of the Severn lies the Shropshire Hills AONB. It’s only when you walk Wenlock Edge that you fully discover what a magical place it is – glorious woods and unexpectedly steep slopes plunge to innumerable secret valleys, meadows, streams and farmhouses, all tucked away, invisible from the outside world.
