Shrewsbury Food Festival 2013 'Restaurant Safari' 29-30th June 2013
The Inn is one of 12 restaurants from Shrewsbury involved in the 'Restaurant Safari'. We will be offering two starters, two main courses (both of which include a vegetarian option) and two desserts. You can view our menu by clicking here.
The White Horse Farm
The Inn has started its own farm on a small holding at the back of the car park. We have 2 Gloucester Old Spot, Tamworth cross pigs and a ewe with a couple of Texel lambs.
The idea is to have home grown free range meat to use on our menu. The next step is to introduce chickens and ducks to the farm in the near future. Watch the progress of our farm animals on this page!
Church Stretton Rally April 2013
The Inn was the finishing point of this year's rally. Out of all the cars which entered this year's rally only 2 failed to reach the finishing point. The evening seemed to be a success, as drivers, co-drivers, marshalls and spectators all met up for drinks and refreshments, whilst the final points and times were calculated.
Easter Egg hunt
On Easter Sunday morning we held an Easter egg hunt for the children in the village. We had a good turn out, even with all the snow and the cold weather! Children were set the task to find as many eggs as they could around The Inn and then find and unravel the clues to find the big prize. Great fun was had by all, I'm not sure if we might need to set up an adults egg hunt for next year though!!
