Brilliant Burger night

Can't get enough of this place! Burger and a beer for £10! You cannot argue for that, you get so much for your money too! I also asked for a side of pulled pork which was not on the menu but did it for me anyway with no troubles. Feel this may be a regular Monday thing for me! See... read more

called in for dinner with friends as we were staying with them in Shrewsbury. My hubby loves a burger, and had one with ginger pulled pork (I think that's right), and topped with a had a mound of homemade onion rings. It looked great, and tasted good. Our meals were fine too, although I couldn't find much on the menu... More

My dad booked a table here for me, my daughter and his mother. On arrival we were welcomed with smiles and shown our table. The lady who was serving us (early twenties, brown hair) was very polite and helpful dispute my Grandmothers question of 'Do you know what a crouton is' (very sorry) she was friendly and professional throughout.

Discovered the porterhouse by way of my ever hungry daughter, booked a table, obviously read trip advisor reviews but decided to make up our own minds....anyway.... Beer selection great, cocktail selection equally good, service relaxed and nothing seemed too much trouble! Not even a licensing visit from the authorities deterred, food was hot, plentiful and delicious, slight mix up with... More

Was recommended by a friend for cocktails - great food, funky menu, friendly staff but wow was it noisy of a Saturday night - had the music from the bar area thudding through, plus different music in the restaurant plus the noise from a couple of rowdy tables... Perhaps we were unlucky?

Lovely setting and the staff were really nice, wanted to try everything on the menu! Price was fair and we were sat in lovely seats. When you first walk in it's the lively, busy bar area and it isn't too welcoming, but as soon as you go through to the restaurant it was chilled. Definitely recommend!

I met my son and ex-wife for dinner together, and we had a wonderful time. Well-cooked food served quickly, with charm and good humour, especially from our waitress, Hannah.

Ate here on Saturday morning ,special treat as it was valentines day . The young lady serving was very pleasant , the guy behind the bar seemed to have some stress issues ,he was even rude to someone delivering flowers . Not in a hurry to go back .

Lovely quaint and quirky place. Staff very friendly and helpful. Sat in the conservatory for lunch. Nice touches everywhere but get rid of the plastic hanging plants in favour of real please! Food was very tasty, huge portions, beautifully presented and fresh, the only criticism was the nachos and chips were a little greasy. The fish starter was perfection.
