“Jewel in the heart of Shrewsbury”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

We have eaten at Renaissance regularly for several years and over this time have never
had a less than superb meal, either at lunch time or their, not to be missed, 6 course taster menu
on either Friday or Saturday evenings.

Excellent and attentive service always.

You won't be disappointed!

“Always excellent”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

We have been going to Renaissance on a regular basis for about 10 years. We usually go for lunch but we have also had many evening meals there - including the taster menu. In all that time the food has been consistently excellent - we are never disappointed - which is why we keep going back! My wife particularly likes the option of either starter size or main with many of the choices - for me any of the fish choices are just brilliant. Talented chef and lovely front of house - a Shrewsbury gem.

“Special Service”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

My husband an I called at the Restaurant for lunch today. On the specials board outside was the
special fish dish of plaice. I have to say it was late, around 2 pm, so I was disappointed to discover the plaice had sold out. On expressing my disappointment, Chef Steve came up with an alternative of Hake on a bed of spinach, served with caper butter and mashed potato - delicious!
How refreshing to have a Chef who is willing to go the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your lunch, how often these days do you find this. Well done Steve, we will of course be back.

“Best restaurant in Shrewsbury and beyond.”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

This is our favourite restaurant simply because the food is excellent, lovely intimate atmosphere and very friendly efficient staff. We have eaten in many restaurants locally and this simply is the best and will leave your taste buds completely satified. Although on the more expensive side it is well worth the money. The surprise menu varies considerably but the standard is always very high.

“Shrewsbury's Secret Treasure”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We have been lunching at Renaissance now for about two years and, in fact, held our wedding breakfast there. The food is always excellent, fresh and of the season. The puddings are to die for. Add to this the fact that the venue is small. intimate but with very adequate space between the tables. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and the service (usually by the co-owner Julie) is always welcoming.

We have also eaten there on their "mystery menu" evenings which were exceptionally good and consisted of a variety of small courses of really interesting and different foods. We always reckon that were Renaissance situated in London or the Home Counties we would be paying many times the price charged for excellent food.
