Our Story

Stuart and Frances

Stuart and Frances opened Docket No.33 in August 2017. With a goal to create a space where people can enjoy great food and service in a relaxed environment, Shropshire was the perfect location due to being surrounded by local growers, producers and distillers.
In October 2019, Docket No.33 was recognised by the Michelin Guide and was awarded a Plate in the 2020 Guide.

Stuart Collins
Having trained with Gary Rhodes at Rhodes in the City, Michael Caines MBE at Gidleigh Park and Gordon Ramsay at Royal Hospital Road and Gordon Ramsay at The London NYC, Stuart took his first Executive Chef role back with Michael Caines at the opening of the Abode Hotel in Chester. After meeting Frances, and with a desire to travel once more, an exciting opportunity to move to Doha, Qatar saw them move once more. Initially overseeing two new restaurants as Executive Chef and later progressing to F&B Director, along with a further opening, Stuart helped to bring award winning restaurants to Doha. After 5 years, it was time to return home and set about opening their own restaurant.

Frances has experience in Restaurant Management and Sales and Marketing. She has been involved the opening many restaurant with great names such as Chef Michael Caines, Chef Guy Savoy, and at the Four Seasons Hotel, Doha.

Using Local

Tasting Menu

Our Tasting Menu is carefully designed to flow from one course to the next. Stuart works closely with the local farmers and producers to hand pick the best ingredients available. As well as being locally sourced, using seasonal ingredients is key to our menus and dishes will change along with availability.

Gather with up to 10 guests around one large table in your own dedicated space.

With bespoke menus and drink pairings available, we can tailor your dinner party to create a personalised dining experience.

Sourcing Our Ingredients

Our main focus is on using seasonal produce and working closely with small local growers and producers to ensure we have the freshest and most flavoursome ingredients to work with.

Wine Pairing

Working closely with several suppliers and producers, we curate our own wine list and hand-pick each bottle.
Our wine pairing changes with each new dish and we work with the flavours to ensure the perfect pairing.


We’re delighted to be working with Sam Pooley-Stride who creates all of our artwork. As a local artist and creator, Sam’s ethos matches our own and the artwork injects life and colour into our dining rooms. Sam’s latest collection ‘Seas of the moon’ is currently on display.
