Yes, this is in effect a training restaurant at Shrewsbury College but you can't quibble at the enthusiastic service and excellent food at Origins. A pre booked group of 45 were there for a special Tuesday evening meal. We'll be back.

Origins is a new, contemporary restaurant at Shrewsbury College, just outside Shrewsbury's historic town centre. It serves top quality British and European food, lunches and three-course evening meals. Theme nights and events featuring music, drama and world cuisine feature in its calendar and there is plenty of free parking. The restaurant, led by experienced chefs and front of house professionals, is a first-class training facility for students whose culinary expertise is recognised at national competitions. The amazing value for money, including a three course meal for £14.95, reflects the fact that food is prepared and served by students while being overseen by chef lecturers.
