Great place, friendly atmosphere. The steak deal with bottle of wine was lovely. The food itself and steak was delicious and cooked perfect. It was tender and juicy. I love drinking and eating here, whether its with family, as a couple or out with friends. The staff are always helpful and friendly.

Had two steaks and a bottle of wine for 20 pound. The steaks were perfect, as was the rest of the meal. The staff were also very pleasant. Absolute no brainer.

Subpar food, overpriced even for Oxton. You are better off going in for a drink and not much mkre. The prices have increased lately and they stop serving early.

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit. We are sorry to hear you found it below standard. We always give table checks, giving guests the chance to change any item, but have had nothing sent back or queried this weekend and our prices have not changed at all since October. We hope to see you again soon. More

I've been local for decades. Seen many changes but it retains it character. Good beer at good prices and the fayre is well received. Pleasant, efficient staff. Worth a visit anytime but a pleasant beer garden on sunny afternoon. Keep it up Folks!

Have friends who live almost opposite the Shrewsbury and they took us for dinner here and what a pleasant meal. Friendly manager and bar staff, cosy corner and good food ...... the gammon, eggs and chips and peas and the Fish and Chips well worth choosing from the menu. Also a good selection of real ales pulled with a smile.... More
