Since my favourite place for lunch (the Cornhouse) closed down I've been searching for another good spot, and yesterday came across The Good Life. Tucked in a passageway off Wyle Cop, this little restaurant serves fresh, delicious food to suit any appetite. I'm always reassured when the kitchen is open access, so all food preparation can be seen by the... More

Took my mum for a birthday breakfast of her choice and despite getting a bit of a shock that it was a vegetarian restaurant - do your homework mum! :-) pretty much everything was spot on! We both decided to throw ourselves completely into the vegetarian ethos and dropped the Quorn sausages, not because we don't like them, we do... More

Lovely for lunch, super service, quiche was delicious, and how good to have salads that aren't all drenched in mayonnaise! Deserts looked lovely as well. We would say this is very good value for the quality of the food and the ingredients. Will visit again.

Have been looking for a restaurant that had vegetarian opitions. What a find this was, a very tasty true vegetarian breakfast, all freshly prepared. Pleasant surroundings, good service and good value. Nice touches, like homemade ketchup. Well worth a visit.

I've been eating at The Good Life for as long as I've been alive. Isn't that something, in this day and age? Restaurants come, and go, cafes come, and go, and new ones fill their place - and that's good, that's exciting, but you need some old staples to stay where they are and do what they do best, and...

As a vegetarian I was very excited to try this well rated vego place in Shrewsbury. Unfortunately both of us found the food very bland after trying all the salads and a different main each. It is quick and easy and the staff are very nice but we just felt the food wasn't very good and I won't be returning... More
