We had a party of 16 for an evening meal, we chose a set menu, which was lovely, and the staff were kind enough to alter a few meals to suit the guests It was a very pleasant meal, and the staff were friendly and hospitable Each table and chair is different, and there is a lovely outside area, which...

I have eaten in the Golden Cross regularly for the last 7 years or so and it never fails to please. Gareth and Teresa are the perfect hosts and the staff are efficient and friendly, nothing is too much trouble.

Only had breakfast here but if the rest of the food is anything like the same quality it would be excellent. The dining room is decorated in a very individual style with lots of interesting features mixing the old original structure with a modern comfortable take.

Walking into the quirky environment takes you by surprise. The atmosphere is extremely pleasant and the food is equally as good. The food and experience offered, makes this place well worth a visit.

Recently dined here during the week. What a gorgeous quirky restaurant, lovely decorated, really nice atmosphere and the staff were really friendly and provide a really nice service. Food was wonderful. A little pricier than your other restaurants but the food is supurb. No complaints at all

Have visited The Golden Cross a few times and have to say I can not fault the food at all. The only thing that stops me giving 5 stars is the price. While I am happy to pay good money for good food I do think there are other places in Shrewsbury where the food is equally as good for... More

With a surprising accent on chic ornamentation you could be forgiven for thinking you'd stepped into a Parisian Salon rather than a Shrewsbury gastropub as I had expected, but don't be put off. The food is delicious and the service is charming. You won't find many of the dishes at your local gastropub, the menu is well thought out and... More

My friend and I recently visited this for the first time and both had a most wonderful time from the moment we set foot inside. Staff were welcoming, warm and friendly, the food was excellent as was the service and although we only had a mains and starter between us I still found it great value and would come again... More
