Great food, but otherwise average

The vegetarian breakfast is stunning, always very tasty and filling. I haven't yet tried lunch or an evening meal so can't comment on any other food. Prices are a little high, but not ridiculous. Service is a bit hit and miss; the waitresses are not usually very chatty and for some of them a smile... read more

Stopped by for a late lunch. Fishcake with poached eggs and a crispy chicken sandwich & chips. All really tasty. Nicely presented and friendly staff.

I love going there because I know they use organic eggs, local ingredients, that the service is always good and the food excellent. I hope it will stay for a very long time!

Visited on a Friday evening with 3 others. As ever the service was excellent, the food superb and a really lovely atmosphere. I've always found it to be great value which is an added bonus. On my last visit I had garlic crusted chicken with fresh seasonal greens and I couldn't fault it. Others on the table had the lamb... More

Visited on a busy Friday night and I was very impressed. I live in Shrewsbury and had never thought of coming here before (not through bad word of mouth but just as I hadn't really heard of it). But I am so glad I now know of this little gem! We arrived as a big group of about ten and... More

I visited with my husband and another couple. We turned up at lunch time with no reservation and were told it would be a 10 minute wait. 5 minutes later we were shown upstairs to our table. On the way up we walked past a very busy kitchen which was great to see. We were seated at a lovely rustic... More

Went with friends last night and all agreed that we could easily go back again tonight and have exactly the same food all over again. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a meal quite so much.

Tucked away in old Shrewsbury but well worth a visit. Good menu & great , friendly service. Looks small from the outside but this is an upper floor. Recommended.

This restaurant provided a wonderful selection of dishes on their two or three course option. Very competitively priced for such good food. Loved their wild mushroom risotto starter. Never had such a tasty risotto. The pork and butternut squash was excellent. The others in the party all had the lamb option which was very colourful with the green peas. They... More
