Upon entering we had a very friendly welcome from a lovely young lady, she showed us to a table and looked after... More

We went as a group of friends to Shakeby's for a meal on a saturday night. There were booked up so you ight want to get in early and book a table. The food was lovely, they had a nice (not massive but varied) selection and specials on offer, there was even more than the usual option of vegetable lasagne... More

Group of friends visiting Shakesby's for the first time, varied menu to choose from but not overwhelming, tantalising tastes, great atmosphere and accommodating staff. Up there with the best, will definitely be returning!

went for their early menu. food was superb and the value was quite frankly stupendous. £9.95 for two courses of well cooked meals was astounding. would revisit if in the area again.
