Came here for pie night and we were not disappointed. The pie was really delicious and packed full of filling. The chips were proper chips - the best I've had in ages. Only slight criticism is that the pie wasn't served quite as hot as I would have liked it but nothing a spot of gravy didn't solve. Would highly... More

Stayed for one night only. Staff friendly, four poster bed comfortable. Right in the town center so access straight away, would highly recommend. My only negative would be no parking on site. But the NCP was a short walk and reasonably priced. Will definitely return

We were in Shrewsbury for 3 days and booked a table on Valentines night. we were prepared for overpriced, average food - but how wrong we were! I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food - the preparation, attention to detail was excellent. Everything seemed made in-house, and the flavours were spot-on. Our waitress was superb, the... More

I go here a lot as I find the vegetarian options very nice and myself and my friends all have dogs. Cromwells is brilliant for dog lovers! We chose to order from the limited lunch and drink menu for £6.95! Both meals spot on. Risotto was really tasty!! For the price it's a brilliant offer, highly recommend. Staff were superb... More

Visited last week but was a little disappointed. First of all we had a drink which we paid for at the bar. Then had steak meal and both ordered the triple cooked chips only because we wanted thick cut chips and not the thin type as you get in McDonald's. when the meal was brought to the table there was...

So an issue was all sorted out. Thanks for your average bubble score. I hope the Marsden Health Centre clients are equally fair and generous with their reviews. More

The staff were brilliant, we had been talking to the Chef beforehand and mentioned a few things to him about how some of us liked... More
