The Huntsman of Little Wenlock is an award winning Pub / Restaurant owned and operated by a local Shropshire family. You can see from the moment you arrive why it is so loved by locals and visitors alike - the relaxing atmosphere, the attention to detail, the attentive customer service and their passion for 'being the best'.
Everything about The Huntsman is designed to encourage you to relax and enjoy your visit, whether you are popping in for a beer and a read of the papers; enjoying the best roasts in the area in the fabulous restaurant; or perhaps staying overnight in the comfortable, en-suite accommodation. The Huntsman is an oasis of calm tucked away in beautiful Shropshire countryside that allows you to unwind and re-charge your batteries as you enjoy the fabulous hospitality offered by the team.
So let’s take a look around.
The Huntsman’s Bar is a comfortable and cosy retreat thanks to a large log burning fire and plentiful seating, where you can enjoy a wide range of drinks including a selection of locally brewed real ales. The Huntsman features four real ales from local micro brewers (ales change on a regular basis) and more recognised national brands such as Old Speckled Hen and Greene King IPA, which sit alongside the always popular Shropshire Gold and The Huntsman Best Bitter. In the better weather, the secure outdoor terrace is perfect for soaking up the sun, or you can watch the village life go by from the roadside seating area. Bar Manager Karen and her friendly and efficient team are renowned for their fabulous hospitality, making every customer feel like they matter - it's like a 'home from home'.
The Restaurant serves top quality but good, honest Pub Food - expect traditional British food with a twist, but nothing too frilly or fancy. Expect good wholesome rustic hearty food and the best available local ingredients from trusted and reliable local suppliers. The traditional roasts are widely regarded as 'the best' in the area and are always really popular so it's worth booking early to avoid disappointment.
The carefully selected and regularly updated Wine List is drawn from some of Shropshire’s finest wine suppliers, including Tanners of Shrewsbury, Addison Wines of Telford and Hard to Find Wines of Bridgnorth. The result is an excellent but affordable wine list that includes many well-known favourites along with some 'cheeky little numbers' from around the world.
The Accommodation consists of 3 delightful and well-appointed bedrooms, two double and one twin (which can be made into a double if required). The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, each being en-suite and with free Wi-Fi included. Prices include bed and breakfast so you will be eagerly anticipating the morning and savouring the famous Huntsman full English breakfast with delicious local bacon and sausages included. It sets you up well for the day ahead whether it involves work or pleasure and The Huntsman is well located for business in the Telford / Shrewsbury area but far enough away for couples looking for a quiet relaxing night on a leisure break.

Top notch, first class all round staff, food, rooms. This is a very friendly place - as the man said.....we will return.
Brilliant breakfast, the best tomatoes I have ever tasted. Cozy room with great view. The only problem was the weather and you aren't responsible for that.
A lovely break close to home. Beautiful room, fantastic food and very relaxing. Thank you Julie
