The staff are really nice and pleasant. The beer garden is lovely and there is a bar outside. Didn't have chance to sample the food, but it looked tasty.

Have visited a few times for meals and drinks for work and with friends/family. The last couple of visits have been very disappointing. Slow service, average food. Staff uninterested in hearing a complaint. Won't go back again as Shrewsbury has plenty more restaurants.More
