As a vegetarian and a vegan, my husband and I researched eateries before visiting Shrewsbury. I had the Butter bean goulash and must say it was delicious. The cafe is very busy but with a lovely atmosphere and I couldn't find fault with the place. The menu is varied and the salads all looked delicious and well presented. The staff... More

The owner and the long serving waiter here are brilliant. We had a great chat the the chef and owner, followed by brilliant local grub. It may not be the finest of presentation, but who cares when it tastes that good.

Wonderful food but the visit was spoilt when I observed an incident of shocking hygiene. The guy behind the counter knocked a pot of yogurt on to the floor and wiped it up with a cloth. He then used the same cloth to wipe a knife, which he used to cut a piece of cake, which he served to me.... More

We would like to respond to this review and reassure the reviewer and our readers that on no account was the cloth used to clear up the spilt yogurt used again after cleaning up the spillage. The member of staff serving on that occasion was our top chef and restaurant manager and has an exemplary track record in all areas... More

I went their with my nieces to try out their dishes as it was recommended on trip advisor. We ordered quiches, leek & mushroom lasagna with goat cheese and some salad. Their food really tasted well and I particularly liked how the lasagna was cooked. The meal was very satisfying and the prices were cheap. The only downside is that... More

I visited yesterday with my husband and had a beautiful smokey chick pea ragu with a selection of colurful salads. I am vegan and this meal ticked all the boxes on a wet stormy day. It looked stunning, was healthy and we're still talking about how good it taste. My husband isn't even vegetarian. I followed the meal with a... More

This is a lovely veggie restaurant. I am not a vegetarian but eating there I've always enjoyed my meal. The staff are so helpful and appear to run a good business. I can recommend a visit. It's my wife's favourite place to eat on a visit to Shrewsbury.

Food is made in the restaurant, the best quiche I have ever tasted, would fully recommend a visit. Puds are also lovely and the service is excellent

When i visit Shrewsbury i always go to the Goodlife be it for tea and a scone (they are wonderful) or for a really tasty and healthy lunch. The food is always excellent, with a great choice of delicious salads and staff are always friendly.

It is a few years since I have been here but it is still as good as ever. The food is freshly prepared and very tasty and nutritious.. The staff are friendly and the downstairs is always busy. There is an upstairs seating area which, when I enquired, would be available to reserve for groups of up to 20. This... More

I was a regular visitor to the Good Life during a two-year spell of living in Shropshire, and on every occasion the food was excellent (especially the nut loaf and salads), the staff were friendly, welcoming and accommodating, and my wife and I always felt comfortable there whether eating alone, as a couple, or with our young daughter. We booked... More
