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. We believe there is a place for a new magazine that celebrates this excellence, and we hope that you will think that Gourment 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 Claude Bosi 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 have endeavoured to harness this experience in this new publication which, I'm sure you will agree, is enriched by stunning photography. We're already planning Gourmet Shropshire 2018.
