Always happy at The Good Life (",)

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... read 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

Called in for an early lunch had a selection of all the salads on offer tasted great and very filling. They did a late cooked breakfast for my son which he shared with his brother and tasted great. Called in later the same afternoon after walking around town to try the delicious cakes. Always come here when visiting Shrewsbury.

I've been coming to this place on and off for many years and can highly recommend the food here. The peanut nut loaf and the roasted vegetable and goat's cheese quiche are my personal favourites. There is a very good choice of salads - all freshly made and generous portion sizes. The desserts are lovely, too, and I really appreciate... More
