The food in the L+P restaurant is exceptionally good - certainly on the two occasions we ate here: one evening meal and one Sunday lunch. In particular the chef's award-winning dish of stone bass with fried squid was superb, both the chicken liver parfait (dinner) and pork terrine (lunch) were excellent and our only disappointment was that by the time...

We booked a table for 8 and were led into a large room, with multiple mirrors on the wall, in the French imperial style, which seemed to have been set aside for larger groups. The seats at our table were made of acylic and were uncomfortable, and the lack of fellow diners didn't help the ambiance. I don't want to... More

Some had a Caesar salad - not... More

Use to be my favourite restaurant, found the menu limited, service very slow, and manger clueless on how to handle criticism, or respect customers, actually barred our main birthday guest, then unbarred him, food in general was ok. Service and staff very clueless and poor.. wont be goin back..

Service was attentive, greeted by a very happy young man. Taken to our seats swiftly. Service could not fault. Food, very very good. I opted for the 16oz rump, cooked perfectly. Chips three ways were a little too hard, but edible, that was my only grumble. Wish I had room for a pudding, although it's an excuse to return. Thanks... More

Lovely atmosphere. The bar and waiting staff were excellent and although it was busy the service was top notch. As for the food, it was fantastic. Compliments to the chef. It was so good we went there again on our second night in Shrewsbury and it was just as good. Would highly recommend.
