Imaginative Veggie Food

A good selection of hot dishes which were a bit more imaginative than the spinach lasagne so often found in Vegetarian restaurants. Also offering soup and jacket potatoes and lovely range of cakes and deserts. Friendly service and pleasant atmosphere. We were glad we checked on line, before... read more

Talk about a winning formula! The Good Life does what it does just the best it could and never fails to please. Delicious salads, lovely puds, main courses always look appetite sing but it's a long time since I've got past the plate of salads which is my 'lunch in Shrewsbury' indulgence of choice.

Tucked away off the main thoroughfare, The Good Life is an oasis of fresh vibrant looking salads, and beautiful vegetarian meals. It has a variety of meals to cater for all tastes, with friendly staff greeting the customers. It's the buy-your-food-at-the-counter-before-you-sit-down style service, but as it's pretty bijou and compact inside, you can understand why. The decor and furniture is... More

I used to visit The Good Life with a friend very frequently. However, because of work commitments, we rarely get the chance these days. So, I popped in on my own during a Saturday shopping trip to Shrewsbury and had lunch on my own for the first time in many months. I was so happy to find that nothing has... More

We were in Shrewsbury and called in at The Good Life. The food is consistently good and a great variety. We managed to get in just before the rush as it is always very busy. We had the wonderful fennel bake with mixed salad followed by lemon cheese cake which was fabulous ,my husband had apple and berry crumble delicious

I live in Shrewsbury and visit here fairly regularly for lunch. They have a great choice of really lovely freshly made veggie food and very competitive prices. Also they do a lovely homemade pecan pie!

It was a while since we had eaten at the Good Life, and we were not disappointed; standards are still excellent. Good healthy hot food with a range of interesting salads. The staff are great; always friendly and accommodating (I have a dislike of garlic, so they are always happy to advise me about 'non-garlic' options.

Called for lunch during a recent trip to Shrewsbury. We are not vegetarians or Vegans, but we are sick of white bread and chips with everything when we eat out. What a delight, salads so fresh, rainbows of colour on your plate, yummy yummy taste and not expensive to boot. We wish you were in Chester we would be there... More
