about gourmet shropshire


Welcome to Gourmet Shropshire

Gourmet Shropshire features some of the best chefs, restaurateurs and artisan food producers not just in Shropshire but the UK.

From Michelin-starred restaurants to award-winning producers, our county is synonymous with exceptional food and drink. Our magazine celebrates this excellence, and we hope that you will think that Gourmet Shropshire is just that.

We believe our magazine's credentials have been underlined by the fact that nationally acclaimed, multi-award-winning Ludlow Food Centre agreed to be our sponsor, and that widely feted Michelin starred chef Marco Pierre White penned the foreword.  

This has been a labour of love for the small Gourmet Shropshire team - we are all 'foodies' with many years of experience of writing about food, drink and hospitality and of reviewing restaurants.

Shropshire is blessed with very many fine establishments and collectively the Gourmet Shropshire team has dined in all of them at one time or another.

We harness this experience in our publication which, I'm sure you will agree, is enriched by stunning photography. Those of us who enjoy exquisite food and fine wines and ales are truly fortunate to live in Shropshire.
