Relaxed lunch

Had a lovely lunch here with a friend. The atmosphere was relaxed and the waiting staff helpful and friendly. The menu had sufficient choice so we weren't limited to burgers and the food was well cooked and tasty. A good choice for a laid back lunch.

On July 21st we had our wedding meal at the PorterHouse and it was simply excellent! From the morning(helping to dress the room, nothing was too much trouble) to our arrival(we were greeted with complementary drinks on the house!) they were helpful, polite and made the whole evening run like clockwork. The food, as always, was perfection. We can't thank... More

Me and the wife use tripadvisor wherever we go in the country whether it be working away or visiting family.........this in turn has uncovered some beautiful places to eat.due to there being a wealth of talent in Shrewsbury you would imagine we would be eating in a different restaurant every weekend, you would be wrong due to excellence of food...

Long wait for main course, but enjoyed it when it finally came. Staff apologized for length, saying they were very busy, Thursday night.Don't know how they cope on a Friday/ Saturday nights

Just returned from a romantic meal with my partner tonight which was lovely great food and first time visit and really impressed with the venue and decor and the whole atmosphere. My steak was perfectly cooked which I'm always fussy and worry about. Overall a great experience except towards the end of the evening there was a bigger table in... More

We had table booked and arrived a few minutes earlier. Our table was not quite ready. The staff were very apologetic and we had a drink in the bar which had a good atmosphere. After a few minutes we were seated and our order taken. The waitress was attentive and pleasant and the place was full and had a good... More

The services was attentive but I would not recommend the food. My friend said her burger was nice while my other friend had the ribs which she said were fine too. I had the paste with crab and crayfish which was very disappointing. The pasta was severed with a very oily spinage dressing which over powered any crab which might... More

This place has a great atmosphere, a good service of well trained staff, can get quite busy but its all handled very well. Ive been here on a number of occasions & have never been disappointed. I don't know anyone who dose not like this place. Central to town too so always good to meet up & carry on !!

My family and I travelled all over the UK for three weeks and this was honestly some of the best food we had during our entire trip. In a addition to the effortlessly cool atmosphere, they nailed everything from cocktails in the bar to starters through dinner and desert. My college age kids were happy because they had a full...
