A friend's favourite restaurant this was a recommended place for lunch that left us disappointed. The surroundings are lovely in a Scandinavian style of neutral colours and natural materials and we had plenty of time to admire them since the service was very sluggish. Thank goodness there was crusty bread on the table while we waited for our order.The food... More

The service was friendly and efficient - they remembered from one evening to the next that I didn't like goats' cheese and amended the starter accordingly! My daughter and I really loved the food because it was interesting, not overwhelming, excellent quality and perfectly cooked but I can see how bigger eaters would find it unsatisfying.

Had high expectations of this restaurant and was not disappointed! The food was absolutely gorgeous, starting with a complementary 'amuse bouche' fishcake, then a superb goats cheese souffle with pickled vegetables (one of the best dishes I have ever had) a delightful fish dish and then a plum frangipane with ginger ice cream - wow, stunning! All complemented by a... More

Really enjoyed this place: excellent food - one of the best burgers I've ever had; and very good beer (Shropshire Lad). The service was relaxed and friendly as well as efficient. The decor and atmosphere made it an oasis of contemporary calm in the middle of the day. Will definitely go back next time we're in Shrewsbury.

First visit for six of us, we were all very impressed, nice atmosphere, good service, extensive wine list, outstanding food! This is local fine dining, do not expect large portions, but beautifully presented food, bursting with flavours.

You can see this restaurant is aiming high. We ate here as a party of 10 and had pre ordered from a set menu. The setting is very atmospheric and has a great ambience. The staff are immaculate and everything appears spotless. The starters were excellent. When the main courses came about 5 people in our party had ordered steak,... More

Sunday lunch for wildly relatives birthday. First problem, there seem to be no disabled access and one of our party was slightly disabled. There ensued a struggle to enable this person to get up the stairs to our table. Service was terribly slow and poor all the way though. Caesar salad for starters was fair. A fish course of cod...
