Found this lovely restaurant by chance, on a visit to Shrewsbury today. The wonderful smell of food on entering assured we would stay. We enjoyed a lovely fresh lunch reasonably priced, served by friendly staff. The ambience was relaxed, the meal delicious. We used to eat at the vegetarian restaurant Hockneys, and the Good Life reminded me very much of... More

The food is excellent and the owners stayed open especially for us one Sunday evening - we had phoned ahead and they agreed to serve us even though no one else was there. It does not look anything from the outside - because they devote their time and energy to the food - no chrome and gloss and planting -... More

Went to the Good Life for a late lunch and we weren't disappointed - tasty carrot & coconut soup with to-die-for homebaked bread and soya spread, and a delicious butternut squash ghoulash with a selection of salads, rounded off with a nutty flapjack and hot berry crumble with vegan ice cream. A feast for two for under £20!

Visited this café on back of other reviews and was not disappointed. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food delicious. Food is ordered at the counter with hot drinks brought to your table. I had mushroom, leek and goats cheese lasagne and my partner tried the spinach mousaka. Both were delicious and served with a selection of about 8 salads. To... More

Lovely wholesome food, loads of choice but get there early as it's very popular! I'd happily come here every day if I could. Like my mom's cooking but better!

Crispy salads, veggie bakes, potatoes, etc, yummy! Self service style so no wait for food! Slightly retro decor, but clean. Friendly staff and reasonably priced food and soft drinks.

We just stumbled upon this place by chance and judging by how busy it was knew it would be good. Food is delicious, fresh and tasty..very reasonably priced. Staff really friendly and the puddings were very difficult to choose because they all looked so good. I could quite easily eat there every day...

Nice food. Tasty, fair priced and home made. Healthy stuff and meat free. Being a big meat eater I wasn't disappointed with the mushroom and goats cheese lasagne. Will come again.

Thank Steve P
