I've eaten at The Armoury dozens of times and every meal has been good, very good or exceptional. It's a huge place but whether it has only half a dozen people in or it's packed on a Saturday night it's got a great atmosphere. This owes a lot to it's location right by the river Severn and the huge windows that let light flood in. In better weather you can have a table outside with the river just over the quiet road. The range of real ales is superb, I imagine the wine range is good too but I always go for one of their ales.
The prices aren't the cheapest but you're paying for the location, atmosphere and quality of the food and booze. Highly recommended.

A favourite place for lunch. The food is always good. Friendly and helpful staff behind the bar take the food orders as well as serving drinks. Waiting staff are always cheerful and efficient. Was there just before Christmas, they were rushed off their feet, but the standard did not drop at all.

The Armoury is located in the centre of Shrewsbury next to the River Severn it has a spacious bar and restaurant with a great menu. We regularly use the restaurant for business lunches and Dinner. There is paid parking along the river bank and at the end of the road but can be in short supply at busy times.
The only criticism I would make is that the interior of the building is very hard with wood floors and flat walls resulting in massive amount of reflected noise. This is made worse by everyone shouting at each other to be heard. The owners need to add some soft furnishings or curtains to break up the echo as you cant have a conversation on a Friday or Saturday night.

Had supper here to celebrate a birthday, food was delicious and the service great despite being very busy. I like that they don't rush you and are happy to pop back to take an order when you can't decide what to have! I felt there were 3 or 4 things I really wanted to eat! This is the 4th or 5th time I've eaten here over as many years (I'm not local) and it's always the same great welcome and good menu delivered well.
