“christmas with friends”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2014 NEW

Looked forward to sampling the new Cuban inspired restaurant that comes under the peach tree establishment. However the food and options were a disappointment !! Expensive for what amounted to was a burger in a bun ? More effort required!

“Buzz Off”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2014 NEW

We popped into "The Peach Tree" between going about our business in Shrewsbury and I have to say we were very impressed with our light lunch. It was called "buzz off", a small platter with big flavours, including a drizzle of honey (hence the name). Gorgonzola cheese and onion were presented in a very creative manner, the result being a riot of flavours. Such a delightful interlude, I got the impression that the chef enjoys his work. The food is in much better taste than the decor. The staff were polite and cheerful, which is always appreciated :-)

“Disappointingly average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2014

Visited today for work's Christmas a lunch with colleagues. Booking online and selection from festive menu, including online payment, was excellent, a really useful facility to offer. The greeting and service was good, with staff keen please, even during an exceptionally busy lunchtime.
The food however, was not so good. Whilst it looked appealing, the majority of it was tasteless, not particularly hot, and was, in all honesty, bland and unappealing. The Christmas pudding (and what I think can be described as custard) was like nothing I have ever tasted. Not somewhere I will return to anytime soon, despite the staff providing good service and genuinely wanting to do their very best for diners.

“Evening dinner ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2014

Food took a long time to arrive...around 40 minutes but I'm sure this was due to the Christmas meals going on? However, small groups of people need to be catered for too...we felt forgotten about for a while. I like the piano that plays itself. We had to ask for our bill despite our plates being taken away a long time ago then another big gap for some one to get us the card machine to pay by card but the food was lovely and this made up for it...I will be returning after Christmas
