Lovely place to go for a drink in the summer. Friendly staff and tasty drinks. Prices are a little expensive but that is expected due to the type of establishment. Would return again but maybe on payday :)

Overpriced steak that was of poor quality with lots of gristle. Also was given a glass with a large crack running through it. Instead of giving you a new drink in a fresh glass they simply tipped the remaining coke into a fresh glass.....there could have been a shard of glass in the coke!

Lovely place to eat drink and be merry. Splendid service. Will return in the New Year. Even got a stripey receipt. Reasonable prices and great bitter that we don't know the name of. All in all a good visit :-)

Have visited Cromwells many times during the day but went for an evening meal for the first time yesterday; the atmosphere was great for a Thursday night, with a good number of customers, very chilled out and unpretentious. It's really cosy for cold nights, great choice of drinks and very tasty, well-presented British food. The waitress/owner is always incredibly friendly.... More

lunchtime choice was good even for vegetarians. The staff are lovely and couldn't do enough to help and without being too intrusive. Fantastic outdoor garden area with heating.

As locals, we have visited Cromwells many times, both for meals in the evening and the great value Sunday lunch. The food has always been excellent and not ridiculously expensive. The service is attentive without being too 'in your face'. In the summer the patio area out the back is a suntrap that is always hard to leave once you... More

We went to Cromwells for my Birthday meal. The meal and service were faultless. We both had a starter and steak for our main meal. I cannot praise the staff and quality of our meal enough. Whilst it was a little bit more expensive, you definitely get what you pay for and was a lovely treat. Thank you to all... More

This restaurant has improved out of sight over the last twelve months. Two couples dining on their Friday special deal of steaks and trimmings plus bottles of House Red @ £40 per couple. The steaks were exceptional....perfectly cooked and of ample size. The service was excellent also. This place is now setting the standards in Shrewsbury.
