My husband and I had our first visit to this restaurant and I have to say we were blown away not only by the food but the decor and staff too! Best table right at the back (number 14)tucked away, we were made to feel very welcome and the waitress (Iona) was able to advise us of the history of... More

Had my wife's work Xmas party here in the upstairs dining room, stunning venue oozing character, staff took care of every detail. We stopped overnight and enjoyed our stay immensely. Perfect base to explore Shrewsbury. The Chef has taken pork belly to a new level.

We enjoyed a wonderful Festive meal in the opulent yet cosy restaurant, loved the country house 'Christmassy' feel. Our greeting and service was warm and genuine. Each course was delicious from the locally made bread to the home made desserts, would love to return .

What can I say? The food was superb, the ambiance delightful, the staff very welcoming, the service good, the décor charming and the food was excellent with a full gourmet menu. The pricing was very good too so I will definitely be returning.

My daughter chose the venue for the four of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience, from the warm greeting on arrival to our contented full tummies departing. However it's the bit in between,the... More

A group of 6 of us visited for a Christmas meal before heading on to festive drinks. It's the second time I've visited The Golden Cross and both times the food has been superb. Food fantastically flavored and meat cooked to perfection. The setting is genuinely quirky in a beautiful old building, walking the line well between "try hard" and... More

I just love this place, and visit whenever in Shrewsbury shopping. The decor is just so quirky, I love it and the tables are beautifully arranged. You really need to book unless you turn up early. Enjoyed a lovely lunch there today, but it's always takes time to choose as so many lovely dishes on the menu!! I had a... More
