Fab menu, egg & soldiers for the kiddies. Eggs Benedict are out of this world, lovely calm & quiet breakfast. Family owned business with really welcoming staff. Would absolutely go again!

If we are in Shrewsbury at lunchtime, we invariably pop into Number Four for lunch and we are never disappointed. The staff here are lovely, helpful, friendly, informative and always smiling- that's a rarity these days! The food is quite simple but always nicely prepared and served. The 'no frills' relaxed approach of Number Four hits the spot!

We had come to Shrewsbury for a weekend of cycle racing and found ourselves at the end of day one looking for a quality restaurant to replenish energy for the following day. We happened to stumble across No.4 after being disappointed by the menu at the Italian we had planed on going to. The Canteen style no fuss layout appealed... More

The only let down for me is the kitchen allowing 1 meal to go out not good enough. The service is superb the food was very good but my steak was of poor quality and to be fair the kitchen would see that before they sent it out. Will I go back? Yes. Will I order steak? No. Shame because... More

Fabulously tasty breakfast. I had the full English which had the most sublimly rich poached eggs, a generous helping of black pudding, a meaty sausage and great bacon. Eggs Benedict was similarly fantastic. Staff were incredibly hard working but still managed to have time for all the customers. Will certainly return.

Number Four consistently serves excellent food, simply cooked, using fresh ans seasonal ingredients. It can't be faulted on that count and provides really excellent value.

Friends had recommended we try breakfast here at the weekend instead of our usual venue. It was certainly worth it. We were promptly shown to a nice table in the window and offered drinks before we chose our food. There is plenty of choice but the full breakfast looked lovely and we were able to "substitute" items we didn't care... More

A busy place and deservedly so. Without doubt, the best brunch in town and a really good fish finger roll.
