We had Carrot and coriander soup to start which we both enjoyed, it was served with white and walnut bread which was delicious with butter. When our mains came we thought the portions were small, however both of us were to full for a desert so instead we enjoyed a pot of tea. The staff are all young and very... More

We didn't eat this time but came for a drink of a Friday night. Nice ales on tap and quite a fun atmosphere. But it was far, far too loud. There isn't a shred of soft furnishing in sight. Which maybe conforms to the look they're going for, but there's a reason restaurants/pubs have traditionally had the odd bit of... More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate all feedback we get from our customers whether it is on trip advisor, facebook or twitter. However our restaurant is situated mainly on the first floor with a few tables available downstairs. We do on occasions have a live acoustic musician as was the case when you visited. This does not effect the... More

While expensive and fancy, this restaurant was all around top notch! Very good food, EXCELLENT wine selection, and awesome ambiance. Highly suggested if you're willing to pay.

Great atmosphere, great tasting food but, very expensive for the amount served. Ribeye is served with a small portion of chips, no vegetables, the smallest piece of sea bass I've ever seen! Lovely walnut bread. Chef is obviously very talented but the hotel is charging London prices in Shrewsbury. Not a place to take the kids unless money is no... More

My other half took me here for my birthday. It was a great meal and a lovely romantic setting. I did think it was on the expensive side for the quality of food received but for a special occasion it was fine.

We've been here twice, the first time it was a joy to behold, the second we were left under whelmed. This is probably one of the more expensive 'bar/restaurants' in Shrewsbury. On our second visit, we arrived for a Sunday roast. At £20 per person - for a single roast course - this was the most expensive roast we've ever... More

Came here during the bank holiday for a meal with my other half! Amazing food! Beautifully presented. Services was great, lovely staff, very friendly and quick with orders. The setting was romantic with a good cheery atmosphere. Would definitely love to come again, possibly for valentines day next year!!
