Here is a little bit about our café. The name Sparrow, while no longer the family surname, remains an important link to the past generations who worked hard to create the Albrighton Estate. The café is therefore named in their memory.

Sparrow’s Café is the ideal place for a delicious brunch, lunch or afternoon snack. Our mouth-watering meals, snacks and cakes are freshly prepared to order in our kitchen, using ingredients from our shop and other local sources. Morning, lunch and afternoon menus give a wide variety of choice. We also have a children’s menu for the little ones, where again everything is made in our kitchen using locally sourced ingredients. We are really proud of serving great tasting local Shropshire produce.

We introduce a new menu at different times of the year to utilise seasonal produce, but the firm favourites such as Battlefield Beef and Shropshire Ale Pie are always available! These changes in menu are also reflected in the range of ready meals prepared for sale in the shop.

We are also able to cater for special events during the day and will always try to meet your requirements. We can cater for business meetings, lunches and parties just call us to see how we can match your expectations. We have wheelchair access to all areas of the site.
