I often pop in here for lunch when I'm shopping in Shrewsbury. There are daily 'special' plus jacket potatoes, soup, quiches and lovely salads. The eating area is pleasant and the staff are always friendly,

Today we visited Shrewsbury, we wanted somewhere with a good vegetarian menu for lunch, so did a quick internet search and The Good Life appeared only a few 100m from where we were. What a lovely find - good, hearty, tasty, wholefood with both vegetarian and vegan options. One of the nicest places I have lunch. Would definitely recommend.

We come here every time we are in Shrewsbury and have always had good food. We especially love the salads, the quiches and the puddings.

I come to this restaurant every time I am in Shrewsbury! The food is nicely presented and you get what you pay for. I am fond of the nut loaf and fruit crumble with a coffee to finish. I like the organic healthy wholesome feel to the environment. It is one of those places where you don't feel out of... More

Never been before, but been aware of this restaurant for a long time.Loved the canteen style of going in, choosing your food, and taking it to a table. The choice was good, all vegetarian, and a there appeared to be a good vegan choice too. Quality was really good we shall be back!
