One of the region’s leading restaurants has unveiled a range of new year initiatives to help get 2022 off to the perfect start.

The View restaurant, at award-winning Shrewsbury wine estate Hencote, says it aims to banish the winter blues with a host of special promotions.

General manager Mark Stevens said Hencote had enjoyed a highly-successful festive period – with excellent bookings despite the fears surrounding the Omicron Covid variant – and wanted to expand its offer through the rest of the winter.

“We have now introduced a mouth-watering tasting menu – available every Friday and Saturday evening in The View alongside our a la carte offerings – to offer still further choice to our diners.

“All the dishes on the tasting menu are specifically paired with one of our delicious Hencote wines to bring out the best in both. They are created using seasonal produce so they give a real flavour of the new year and a true taste of the locally-sourced, high-quality cooking we are building our reputation on.”

The restaurant was continuing its popular Sunday lunches, but had also introduced a new weekend brunch offering, Mark said.

“We are really pleased with the response to our brunches so far and see them becoming an integral part of the Hencote offer for years to come. They are available from 9am-11am on Saturday and 9am-Noon on Sunday and there’s no better way to start your day,” added Mark.
