Places to eat & drink in Market Drayton.

A bustling town with a market on Wednesdays that dates back to the times of Edward l, Market Drayton also claims to be the place where gingerbread was invented. The centre of the town has a number of black and white, half-timbered buildings which include the Butter Market. Clive of India was born and raised here and is said to have climbed the local church and contemptuously sat astride a gargoyle when he was just a young tearaway. The Butter Cross was built in 1842 to keep traders dry on rainy days. Nearby are two superlative gardens, the Dorothy Clive Garden and the gardens of Hodnet Hall. The Shropshire Union Canal passes by.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Market Drayton or surrounding areas.

Simon Smith's talents, tempered on the Pacific Rim, have fired new life into humble spinach, crowned "vegetable of the year" by the Evening Standard. Wild boar, spring lamb, quail, pike or asparagus are all raised a few Shropshire miles from your table. Even the lobsters travel a matter of yards from their pool. While local produce holds sway in the kitchens, ambassadors from the world's vineyards and breweries await in the cellars, a combination which moved Jonathan Meades of The Times to write "Goldstone Hall might be in another country".
