Excellent, sensibly priced food. Large portions. Maybe the best veggie menu (we had to ask for it) we have ever seen. Great staff. But oh' the noise levels - not the music but people shouting to one another just to be heard. It was a...More

We enjoyed an evening in this very popular and busy restaurant. It was very good value food, plenty of choice and there was plenty of it. We would not hesitate to recommend to anyone visiting this delightful town.

My second time here and am loving it. A very cosy restaurant. The vegetarian full English breakfast £8 was perfect for me. The food is good and the service is excellent. Highly recommend this place for a good meal. Free wifi, ask for the password.

Very cute and cozy place to have a coffee and cake with friends. The service staff was very polite and the carrot cake was phenomenal. The coffee was the best I had in Shrewsbury.
