“Excellent food, would come back”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Last week we fancied a treat and booked online. On arriving to the restaurant we were greeted very nicely and given a nice cosy table, although close to other tables somehow it felt well-appointed as we could speak without feeling as though we were shouting. The menu had a good selection of food, something for everyone we felt. We had the tasty sour dough bread (although I must say as a bread-maker it wasn't all that different to normal white bread), and yummy olives. We then both had steak and it was super delicious - great meat, well-cooked. The staff were great and didn't rush us at all, overall we had a great evening and would definitely come back.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

The food and service at this restaurant was really good and could not be faulted. All dishes were presented well and tasted even better. We both ate the lamb which was served in three ways and tasted beautiful. The only negatives to the evening were being seated next to the bar with people standing over us whilst we were eating and a slight smell of damp/toilets rising from the basement. This would not put us off returning so long as we were seated elsewhere. By far the nicest meal I have had in Shrewsbury for a long time.

Thank you for reviewing The Glutton Club. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your dishes. The lamb is one of our dishes that we have been unable to take off our menu, as we get so many requests for it.
We want to send our biggest apologises for the smell of the drains that evening , as a very old building we have found it extremely hard to cover the smells , they are impossibe to get rid of and covering them can be so difficult , but we are trying our very best but thank you for your feedback.

We really look forward to seeing you again.

Many thanks, The Glutton Club

“Wonderful”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

This venue was chosen by friends who had been before. We were greeted well and the eight of us were seated at a pleasant table by polite efficient, knowledgeable staff. We all decided to have the 'taster' starter (which understandably took a few minutes to prepare) all were beautifully crafted and absolutely delightful. My Bavette steak was cooked perfectly rare and was delicious. All my fellow diners were equally impressed by the high standard of food provided. This place is a gem of a find, good luck to the two youngsters in charge, they obviously have a passion for creating a great dining experience for their customers.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are so pleased that you tried 'The Taste of the Glutton Club menu', it was a menu which we have wanted to try for a long time. You were one of the first tables to try it , so your feedback is just fantastic. It is so lovely when our customers can see how much passion we have for food and service. We look forward to seeing you and your friends again.

Thank you

“Our first visit will not be our last”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

My family & I had a lovely meal here this evening. We all chose from the a la carte menu, although you can choose from the taster menu if you wish. The service and welcome was very good.

To start, my wife had steak tartare, I chose the kidneys. Both dishes were lovely.

For main course, my wife & daughter chose the trio of pork, which they both enjoyed very much. My son and I chose rump steak which was gorgeous. The chips with the steak were delicious.

The pavlova was lovely for dessert, along with the warm chocolate tart.

A lovely meal, with good service and a nice position in the town, close to the theatre & the river.

“" Exquisite food."”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

The decor of the restaurant is tasteful with an intimate feel and a very personal touch which is often lost in some of the larger restaurants. We we given a warm welcome, professional but a very helpful and friendly service. However it is the food that makes this restaurant one of the best I've ever dined in. Every dish was just perfect...beautiful on the plate, and the palate. My risotto was amazing. It was a delightful experience and we will definitely return. Look forward to trying out the newly planned tasting menu.
