I enjoyed a hot casserole dish here on a short trip to Shrewsbury. It seemed healthy (not stodgy) and was tasty as in my opinion it was perfectly (lightly) spiced. Also i learned a bit about veganism from one of the staff. Nice upstairs area. Would go there again to try other dishes.

The Good Life's food is nice and that's kind of it. The flavours are just average, I can make much nicer quiche, and had much nicer ones in other restaurants. the portions are small so for a decent meal you have to get yourself a few extra's. This makes the good life unfortunately not great value for money, or actually... More

I'm not a vegetarian but after my visit today, I will definitely return to this restuarant. The hot dish was tasty and the salad I chose was absolutely crisp and fresh, with many vegetables and herbs. There are several restaurants nearby charging a lot for something not very special. Here you get excellent food for reasonable prices. If you want... More

This is the second time I've eaten here and it's very much a fave now. First time I went with my husband and the second time by myself. Good simple vegetarian food. There isn't loads of choices but what there is tastes great. I had quiche with salads and cheese cake and coffee, before I've had crumble and a different... More

I am not a vegetarian, but my cousin who I went with is. We both thoroughly enjoyed the food. I had a vegetable moussaka and my cousin had the nut loaf and we shared a mixed salad which had a great variety of things in it. The food was delicious and very tasty. The service was also good, I would... More

Friendly staff and wonderful food. A must for all vegetarians and anyone who loves excellent wholesome dining. The savoury potatoes and nut lace are out of this world

Have not been to this restaurant for years, but it hasn't changed a bit. Great quiche and lots of salads. Adults & children enjoyed the food, we all had different and enjoyed sharing. Great standard of food.
