I'd wanted to eat at the Golden Cross for years and this weekend I finally got round to it. It was well worth the wait and a truly memorable evening. The food was amazing, so hard to choose from the imaginative and creative menu. We were all impressed with our choices. The service was impeccable and helpful, answering our queries... More

Sat in the front restaurant for our food- I had the pulled pork which was strangely presented but I liked it! Really nice flavours... And my boyfriend had the fish and chips which looked amazing and apparently tasted great (They weren't there long enough for me to taste! Haha). Service was prompt though the waitress was a bit miserable... It... More

Living in Shrewsbury we are privileged to be able to frequent this lovely inn quite often. Whenever friends visit we are always proud to take them to the restaurant where fine food is always guaranteed. The setting and service never fail either! Thoroughly recommended.

We always make sure we eat here when we visit Shrewsbury. The dining room in this lovely old building is elegant and quirky. The food is fantastic. We shared parmesan & fennel breadsticks wrapped with parma ham as a starter, then bollisto misto (slow cooked belly pork with amazing crackling) for mains. My husband had decaff affogato and I had...

This was our favourite place to eat in Shrewsbury. It can be found in a quiet street only minutes from the centre of town. The dining room is unpretentious and a bit quirky. I'd guess not more than a dozen tables. Started with the Goats' cheese soufflé, which my partner reported as flavoursome and fine, and I had Layered Cornish... More

We enjoyed a very good meal in this atmospheric restaurant housed in a very old building. Service was prompt and friendly. The food was delicious, my gazpacho was excellent with the unusual addition of sliced egg and black olives(it worked for me!). The Sea Bass was well cooked and the puddings were very acceptable. Good place to go in a... More

Gareth and Teresa are fabulous hosts and their food is always delicious. Sunday roast is the closest to the best home made roast you will find. Had beef-burger and salad yesterday - really really good. Always a delight. Thank you.
