Not sure why there are so many excellent reviews at Number Four as our experience at lunchtime today was quite poor. We asked for a table and were told quite sharply to wait which we were quite happy to do anyway. We were told to go upstairs and shown to a table that felt it was inside the kitchen it... More

A very friendly cafe/bistro, good for coffee and cake, snacks and up to a full meal. My wife chose 'croque madame' which was a huge portion bursting with ham and cheese. I had confit duck which was excellent, soft and tender and very tasty.

Found by accident for a coffee & cake break up a side road from one of the main shopping streets whilst on a visit to Shrewsbury - what a gem. Good coffee, great cakes, friendly & efficient staff, nice environment and decent prices - what is there not to like?

This is my always go to place, never had a bad meal here and service is always friendly and quick.one of the main contributors in the constant food revolution Shrewsbury has gone under recently. A gem!.

Great choice by the wife for lunch - I had chicken wrap, wife had chicken salad, eldest son (10) had ham, egg, boiled potatoes whilst youngest son (8) had a lovely home made fish finger sandwich. Food was great, they were very busy and we waited 5 mins for a table. Food took a while which they apologised for and... More

I go here most Saturdays for breakfast and am always delighted with the food and service. The eggs are now famous in Shrewsbury! I've recently been introduced to the tapas evening which was brill. The best compliment I can give was that at the end of a drunken loud evening with friends I realised the food had been part of... More

No understatement or anything but I absolutely love visiting Number Four. I have been several times both on my own, with friends and with my partner and each time everyone has loved the food. Sitting downstairs is more comfortable than upstairs (in reply to some of the sardine reviewers) but the food more than makes up for it. DO NOT... More

We rang up on Friday night at about 8pm and managed to get a table! On a arrival we had a warm welcome and a choice of two tables, we chose to sit upstairs. Once seated we were then told that they had run out of the majority of dishes on the menu. It's annoying to come out and spend... More
