After a two hour drive to Shrewsbury, I fancied a breakfast ahead of my working day. I've visited The Goodlife before and I know that a veggie breakfast is now an option, so I gave it a spin! Great service from the off, and a choice of cooked eggs freely offered. I also ordered tea and what a small but... More

Visited for a very late lunch whilst on a day trip to Shrewsbury with friends. Researched the Good Life first on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. Excellent vegetarian food with lovely home made salads. Because we were late visiting there was not much left but still a decent choice and we were offered a big scoop of every... More

We booked a table for 6 so that my 77 year old Dad wouldn't have to wait around. The "get a tray, queue, order, wait" system is a bit confusing for first-time customers, but it was worth it - everything was fresh, delicious, wholesome. Thanks - the biggest accolade was from my (meat-loving) Dad - he asked when we could... More

My last visit was quite late in the day so our options were slightly limited, it was 15 minutes before closing though! Non the less we were welcomed in and... More

Luxury that I can go and eat anything off the menu as I'm a Vegitarian. Proper fresh food. Yum yum. Food Heaven. Been going there for years.

As a meat eater - I rather suspect most like myself may not have a predilection for vegetarian restaurants - they tend not to register on our radar... Following a visit to this establishment today with another (myself under minor duress) I must urge a change of settings if in Shrewsbury to try 'the other side'. You may be very... More

I decided to dine here with a friend 'a spur of the moment' decision. It was a busy lunch time but I found the staff to be helpful, quick and polite. My friend opted for the mixed salad which was fresh, healthy, tasty and satisfying. I immediately noticed the range of home made puddings and sweets and decided on the... More
