Eccleshall is a proud and thriving rural community that can trace its story back to the Domesday Book. The ruins of Eccleshall castle pay testament to a time when the town was fought over by great armies, or when it was home to powerful bishops.

Once a centre for glass making and leatherwork, Eccleshall became a popular stop during the coaching age, developing a reputation for hospitality that is still reflected today with its reputation for fine artisan food and drink.



Eccleshall nestles in the beautiful Sow Valley, a traditional country town in the very heart of England. 

From the gentle peel of the church bells to laughter from pubs dating back to the days of the coaching inn, visitors to Eccleshall can relax to the sounds of English country life.

If you want to venture out into the countryside, a charming network of healthy rambles surrounds our welcoming rural community – with more than 130 public footpaths maintained by the Parish council offering space and fresh air.



For fine wine, restaurants and intimate eateries, Eccleshall has plenty to offer diners.

Thanks to its growing reputation for artisan food and drink, the country town is becoming a regular destination for discerning foodies looking for independent and unique places to enjoy everything from traditional hearty fare to fine dining delicacies.
