Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

Heard great things so went along. Restaurant itself is really nice and service was great but unfortunately food didn't live up to expectation. Burger was dry and very average and chips claimed to be double cooked but we're just frozen chips. For £22 I expected...more.More

I've been here a few times and I'm always happy with the food. I had the bacon cheeseburger which was really moist and meaty. Amazing chips with it! Then I had the specials crunchie cheesecake. £7.5 is a little on the expensive side for a...slice but it was big and very tasty! Nice, cosy atmosphere here too. It definitely rivals another popular burger restaurant in Shrewsbury.More

A cool little restraunt when found. Questionable sized bacon for three rashers and caramelised red onions is just half a tea spoon of chuckney. A bit too expensive for what you got but a good vibe.

Burger, Chips & Milkshakes for all the family. Really nice calm atmosphere in a characterful cellar setting. Good quality burgers without any greasy feeling at all - came with double cooked chips which were also really good (and the salad too); lots of flavours of...milkshakes to keep the kids happy. Excellent service and really nice lunch overall.More

I have been to the restaurant on a number of occasions with my wife and the burgers are fantastic. I love the kicked by a mule which is really good if you like a bit of heat in your burger, if they have the special...on have the burger with the buffalo sauce (not one for the faint hearted but if you like hot then this will tickle the taste buds). Wife loves the black and blue tastes great. Staff are always friendly and give a warm welcome, James and Aisha do look after you.More

Definitely room for improvement! It has a nice decor that looks as though it would be warm but it was very cold in there. We didn’t bring jackets with us to sit inside. We waited almost 40 minutes in-between starters and mains even though it...was very quiet and we wanted to get out of there faster because we were so cold. (Even in a jumper). Food was alright, I would recommend asking to have your onion rings separate from the burgers (they are inside some of the burgers) and it makes the burger so greasy and the grease was on the plate. However, apart from that it was alright but I don’t know that it’s worth the money. All together, I think this could be a nice place if a few tweaks were made to the food and the heating was on! But sadly, we did not enjoy our experience.More

THE best gourmet burgers in Shrewsbury ❤️ Locally sourced produce cooked with care and attention by the chef who owns the business. Do not hesitate to visit but book first if visiting on a weekend, all the staff are incredibly caring too👌

I read several reviews about how good the burgers are and that they were the best in town. We were really looking forward to our meal out but found the burgers were nothing special and overpriced for what they were, the side order of onion...rings were greasy and placed on a plate with a bit of greenery which did not look very appealing. The staff were really attentive but unfortunately we will not be back as it did not live up to our expectations.More

As I mentioned before, I suspect it's a question of the manager on duty and how he feels about letting in your pooch

There is plenty of local parking nearby but do not see this as a put off. The food is just seriously good!
