Henry Tudor House New venue thriving after six months

A new bar and restaurant venue in Shrewsbury has just picked up its first business award.
Henry Tudor House, situated just off Wyle Cop, opened last November and has since enjoyed a highly successful half-year of operation.
It was recently presented with the ‘Best Business’ accolade in this week’s Mayor of Shrewsbury annual awards.
Proprietors Clare and Graham Jenkins, who invested around £1 million into a six-month refurbishment of the large half-timbered building, said they were thrilled to receive the award and pick up a gold standard nomination in the ‘Heritage’ category.
The awards ceremony was held at Shrewsbury Town Council’s headquarters at The Guildhall and was attended by around 60 guests and council officials.
“We were thrilled to receive the top business award from the Mayor - it is recognition for all our hard work and investment,” said Clare, adding that the new enterprise has created 14 jobs.

Henry Tudor House is one of the oldest, most historic half-timbered buildings in the Shrewsbury and is reputed to have got its name when Henry Tudor stayed at the site on his way to victory over Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485.
