One of our favourite veggie places to eat and always a pleasure to visit when we're in Shrewsbury. I can't say a great deal more than on offer is lovely tasty food at a very reasonable price, very pleasant atmosphere, friendly and very helpful staff. What could be better? We'll certainly be back even though it means travelling around 40... More

We have be eating in The Good Life for many years as it's one of our treats when we visit Shrewsbury. Over the decades the food, staff and atmosphere has always remained excellent - don't know how they do it, but long may they continue. One request please open a restaurant in Telford we need you here!

Why can't everywhere be as good and simple as here! You walk in, choose your food, pay and go and sit down, eat. You see everything and it all looks sooo tasty, its just a case of deciding what to have! Everything is vegetarian and a lot is vegan, but don't be put off if you're not vegetarian as you... More

The food here is AMAZING. My sister is vegan. I am not. The food here caters for vegans and veggies but to be honest you do not need meat when the food tastes so so good. I had red lentil tarka dahl and my sis had pumpkin and something... Both had such deep flavours and the salad is just something... More

I have visited this restaurant for many years, it is always busy because it is constantly good! The staff are friendly and helpful. Great choice of Soup, hot & cold food and a variety of salads, not forgetting the lovely puddings if you are still hungry, or just go in for a coffee & something sweet. It is vegetarian, however...

Brilliant find off the beaten track. Great staff, excellent food and brilliant value for money! Faultless apart from the dithering customers it can attract! Give it a whirl though, it's delicious.

We were in Shrewsbury looking for somewhere to get breakfast and I remembered reading a couple of good reviews about The Good Life. There are signs for it at the entrance to the passageway off of Wyle Cop. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The menu is vegetarian but, as a keen meat eater, I can assure you that the... More

Vegetarian breakfast is easily 'veganisable', and very tasty. Staff are lovely and friendly. Look forward to trying lunch here at some point!

Just like the last reviewer, this was our first visit to Shrewsbury and we arrived in need of a coffee, coming across this cafe by chance. The home-cooked food, the delicious aroma and the healthy ingredients brought us back for lunch. The food is delicious and is very good value. Definitely to be recommended.
