Terrace Charrible Grill & Lounge Bar stands out for its picturesque riverside setting and cozy ambiance, which consistently impresses diners. The menu, celebrated for its fresh, local steak and skewers, has garnered much praise, although some guests note occasional lapses in food seasoning. While the overall value is acknowledged due to the high-quality fare and stunning location, the dining experience is sometimes marred by slow service and premium pricing. Despite these concerns, the attentive and friendly staff contributes positively to the atmosphere, ensuring a warm and welcoming visit.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was our first visit to this establishment and we were absolutely blown away! We visited as a group of 4 for lunch and from the moment we arrived we were very impressed with the layout and scenic view of the river and the warm welcome from the staff. The attentiveness of our waiter was excellent and the chef even popped out to engage in conversation and to talk to us about the menu and offered recommendations as what to order. We all went for the locally sourced Sirloin steak and I must say that it was the best steak I have ever tasted, the charcoal grill really does make such a difference and it was cooked to perfection (medium rare). We found the prices to be very competitive and the quality was second to none. We have been lucky enough to eat out all over the country from London to Edinburgh and it is so nice to discover this Shrewsbury gem! After our meal, the chef popped out of the kitchen to offer us a taste of the beef skewers as well and these were AMAZING and will definitely be ordered on our next visit, which I hope will be very soon! From our home in North Shropshire, we are so lucky to have this establishment on our doorstep. Bravo!

Service, food, drinks, ambience all fantastic. Can’t fault the terrace. The weather was atrocious and so we were glad of the heaters. We’re out of towners and had tried a couple of other restaurants in Shrewsbury and this was the best by far. The chef and waiter were fab, interacting, advising re the menu, making recommendations and providing additional tasters etc. We highly recommend.

I have been here on three occasions now, once with a colleague, once with family and once with friends. We have always been made to feel like an inconvenience to the staff, twice we have asked for food and been told we can't have any (restaurant too busy on one occasion, restaurant "closed" on another, which was 8pm on a Friday). The young staff mostly seem to stand around chatting and seem inconvenienced and irritated by customers. I think this place needs some experienced senior management asap! The location is lovely and I really wanted to support a new local business (which is why I've kept returning) but you're really not going to last long unless you start turning some of this around.

Dear pioneer22553853194, Firstly, I’d like to apologise for your previous experiences with us. Unfortunately, Friday nights are among our busiest periods and, as a result, we always advise booking ahead to avoid disappointment. Additionally we were closed for renovations between the 11th and 29th of September meaning that the restaurant would have been closed. This does mean, however, that we now offer an outdoor cover and heating to make colder months even more enjoyable for our guests. We can also guarantee that the restaurant would not have been closed at 8pm on a Friday as our kitchen is always open until 9:30pm on weekends due to high demand. Perhaps there was a small miscommunication and the restaurant was actually fully booked on the occasion of your visit. We’re sorry to hear that you weren’t happy with the performance of our team. For a few of our team members this is their first job in hospitality. We believe that everyone has to start somewhere and find that our youngest team members, while not the most experienced, are always the most eager to improve. Recently, we have restructured our management with leaders with years of hospitality experience at the helm. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither were we. Hopefully you return in the future so that we can show you how much we’re always improving, just remember to book in advance. Terrace Team

Wanted to try for a while and eventually managed to grab a lunchtime meal. Venue and views were amazing. Greeted on arrival and order placed quickly. Unfortunately the food was not the best. Had the hummus dips for starters which didn't have a lot of taste. We ordered two burgers and one without lettuce. It arrived with lettuce and gherkin which was not on the menu. The staff took it back and took the lettuce off only. Chips were really salty so ordered some with no salt. The burger was good quality but also salty and lacked some taste. When asked how our meal was we explained it wasn't the best and the staff apologised. We then ordered two more drinks but these never arrived so we paid and left. Maybe come back for drinks only.

Delicious food, amazing views, brilliant service! All the food is homemade and was so delicious. We had the lunch menu. The waitress was so nice and helpful , she asked the chef how he prepared the artichoke for me. Also had the chicken skewer with homemade crisps, lovely succulent chicken. Perfect seasoning. She was friendly, polite and we really enjoyed it there. The view of the river makes it extra nice! The restaurant is clean, pretty. We will return ! Thank you from Michelle and Clare. X

The Terrace has now a fully covered area and as such you wouldn’t know it’s ’outside’ the heaters do a great job Staff are very accommodating and they have made efforts to make it fully inclusive for wheelchair users, by the addition of a disabled toilet and a ramp to access this to overcome a step . Food was enjoyable and the choice of drinks made mainly by Kieron ; are great We shall be returning in the future,we certainly would recommend you try them. In the summer this place will be buzzing I hope .

We visited on the Terrace on a Friday evening with friends, The mediterranean menu was perfect with a great selection, I had the Toast starter with steak main both were fantastic, A great selection of beers and wines available, I sampled my wife’s main Ecuadorian Tiger Prawns and would have been happy to trade. The service was brilliant and will certainly be returning to try their new summer menu… We were shown around the newly built garden area! Very nice.

We’d booked a table Saturday 11th May for food, for our first meal out as a couple since having our 7 week old baby, and had been looking forward to the evening. We were greeted and asked if we would like some water for the table…. 30 minutes later, no water and nobody had been over to take drink or food orders. My husband went to the bar to ask for our water and to order drinks… another 15 minutes later and we still had no drinks, and no food order taken. We ended up leaving after those 45 minutes and walked along the river to another well established restaurant where we’re accommodated despite no booking, and had a brilliant meal with superior service. I’m sure Terrace would be lovely if you managed to get your orders taken as it’s the perfect setting, but we won’t be back.

What an absolutely fantastic visit today, we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary here, the staff were amazing and even offered us free drinks to help us celebrate. The location is right on the river seven as it bends through Shrewsbury The food was homemade and fresh the hummus was outstanding l, we had steak which we perfectly cooked with homemade fries. The cocktail menu was extensive and we had 2 awesome drinks along with our meal. I would highly recommend this bar/restaurant and would definitely visit again

We called in here on a Saturday afternoon just for drinks. We went to the bar area to be told it was table service , or otherwise there was another bar downstairs where we could order. We went downstairs to the bar to be told it was a bottle bar only, so back upstairs we went. Not the end of the world, but slightly irritating. It then took quite a while for our drinks order to be taken, to be told the one draft beer needed changing, so it would be 10 minutes, so we just opted for the other one. Half an hour later we order more drinks, to be told there was now no draft beer at all. It just seemed very unorganised, & considering it was a Saturday afternoon, one of the nicest days of the year, you would have thought they would have their act together.

Birthday meal last night. Good vibe in beautiful riverside setting. Interesting food such as skewered pork and halloumi burgers with griddled vegetables. Nice small menu of fresh local food. Lovely staff. Thank you.

Thought we would give this place a try and support it as a new business. Only called for drinks with friends, a bottle of wine and a cocktail was ordered, around 20mins later the cocktail arrived, followed by the bottle of wine! Honestly it wasn't even business and we counted 7 members of staff so why was the service so slow? Probably won't return if I'm honest.

Excellent place for a Sunday brunch. While the menu isn't presented as such - we ate from the lunch menu - the food and terrific coffee in this riverside bar and grill make for a savoury late morning/mid-day meal. Definitely popping back for dimmer.

We visited Saturday May bank holiday weekend, there were 6 of us. Booked a table for lunch and must say the service and the welcome received by the owner was absolutely superb. Very warm and very friendly. Had a lovely table overlooking the river, and the food was sublime too. The pork skewers and burger would highly recommend and also the chips were some the nicest chips had in years. Would highly recommend and will definitely be going back
