About the employer

We are situated in the centre of Market Drayton, Shropshire on the main shopping street ‘Cheshire Street’ where there is ample parking both in front of and behind the restaurant. The restaurant started out life looking very different and was once a cycle shop. After lots of hard work designing, planning and building it finally came together to become the beautiful intimate setting it is today – we literally built the place and we’re very happy with what we have achieved!! It’s always great to receive praise and over the last few years we’ve been very lucky to receive some awards and nominations that show our hard work is being greatly received!
