Came here on a Tuesday evening with a friend for something new to try - glad I did! Scallops of the day to start - seared scallops, confit belly pork, quail eggs and a port jus! Simple but beautiful! I had the sirloin to follow with a Diane sauce, cooked to perfection and the right amount of sides! Not too... More

This restaurant was recommend to us by the owner of the excellent Café on the Cop. It happened to be just round the corner from Draper Hall (which, by the way, is a unique and wonderful place to say overnight in). It did not disappoint. The staff were friendly and helpful. The décor is trendy in a sort of Shrewsbury... More

We were walking past PosterHouse and it looked like a fun place. The satff were great, very welcoming and helpful. Not having a kids menu is normally a little challenging, but they were happy to serve most menu items as child portions or even have the kitchen make a specific meal for us. Luckily it was not needed as my... More

Ducked in here out of the rain for a pot of tea and a chocolate and raspberry brownie. Good pistachio ice cream and honeycomb sprinkles. Helpful staff- good value.

This is a wonderful quirky little hotel with the advantage of a lovely bar and restaurant on site. Attention to detail was top class and little extras like fresh milk in room and home baked goodies on arrival. The MOST comfortable beds and lovely friendly staff! One bit of feedback to offer..breakfast was great for the carnivores in our group... More

We decided to have our regular "girlie" meal out and catch up at the Porterhouse last night. Monday night is Burger night and we all had the Southern Fried Chicken burger. Fabulous! Excellent food and great friendly service. Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and bar too. Only one disappointment....I was told the dessert I wanted (Boston Tea Party) was not... More

Returning to Shrewsbury we asked for recommendation for lunch and were directed to Porthouse. What can I say, we wanted a light lunch (foodwise), and were delighted when we selected their £8 lunchtime deal, great value for money, pleasant, efficient service. The cocktails we also consumed on a hot sunny day were sublime. Handsome, delightful waiters were considered an extra.....................would... More
