I've been eating here since it opened a couple of years ago and it's always a joy. Great food using local produce cooked by Toby and his team and served by very helpful staff. They open for breakfast, which is popular because it's first class; try the full English! Once a week they have a themed evening which is a... More

I come here all the time and love it. It can be busy at the weekends so book! I recently had the beef and chorizo burger and it was wonderful. Really juicy and packed with red cabbage slaw with a side of fries and pickles. I've seen the buns being handmade in house and they are the nicest buns ever.... More

stopped off for a light bite as had previously walked past after eating elsewhere. Menu for evening looked great, very quirky layout as you walk past a fridge with raw ingredients for cooking on display, menu for lunch varied enough and with good twists, deep fried wasabi shallots a little underpowered but tasty, all told perfectly good food, tea pot...

No 4 is a unique experience - great food, slightly different from the norm - relaxed atmosphere but with an " urban feel " and brilliant service. not quite a restaurant, but so much more than a café, once bitten you just can't resist going there. I love lunch, but the few nights they are open for dinner is marvellous;... More

Me and my sister dropped in on a Friday night for a 3course meal and we're blown away by the stunning food in both appearance and taste every course was a delight! I would definitely go again it's the best meal out iv had in a very long time large portions packed with flavour and very reasonable worth every penny!

We have become such fans of this place, our girls (12 and 14) love it and it has food to suit all of our palates. The sticky toffee pudding is to die for - very generous amount of sauce - and the staff are always cheerful and helpful. Best to book especially on a Saturday.

My daughter and myself live a shopping trip up town now and again, while making our plans we always include a visit to 4 butcher row for our lunch. Great value for money, food excellent, and staff very helpful. Would recommend it everyone to try.

This is consistently the best cafe in Shrewsbury. Great friendly service, nice atmosphere and professionally sources and prepared food to suit all tastes and appetites. It can get busy son don't expect to always walk in to a table without a small wait.
