Bear Steps Coffee House: Coffee in the Churchyard
The coffee house is located in the medieval part of the town centre with the Bear Steps themselves dating back to at least the 14th century. The café produces freshly roasted coffee that is sourced direct and also sells cakes and light lunches, it must be lovely to sit outside in the quiet and under the shade of the trees in the summer.

Favorite Dish: Coffee and Chocolate Fudge Cake
The Carluccio's in Shrewsbury is situated on the Town Square, It has a nice restaurant layout but sadly not much of a shop as the produce is spread out around the restaurant and behind diners. The food as always was lovely

The King's Head: Don't miss this leaning building!
This traditional English pub near the river is a nice place to stop off for some refreshment when in Shrewsbury. We tried some of the local real ale which was more than overdue after walking around the town. The interior of the pub is very oldy-worldy, low timbered ceilings and wooden tables being order of the day. The only giveaway that you are in the 21st century is the plasma TV in the corner.
The walls are adorned with pictures of the pub and one in particular took our interest; a picture of the pub exterior under water on an occasion when the River Severn had broken its banks. As the pub is on the slope of a hill, we were quite surprised at how far up the flood water had risen!
Favorite Dish: We didn't eat here. We just had a couple of half-pints of ale before moving on. The menu looked tempting though. Especially the burgers.

Good Life Wholefood Restaurant: Wholefood/Vegetarian
This is a great place to grab lunch, whether you are vegetarian or not. The food is healthy, but tasty and in good sized portions. Best to come early, though, if you want to get the pick of the dishes. The favourites are usually all gone by the end of the lunchtime rush.
The Armoury: Good food & atmosphere
In a city like Shrewsbury it is nice to enjoy an evening in an establishment that embraces its historical atmosphere. The Armoury, located in an old building overlooking the river, has a warm and pleasant atmosphere that draws on the brick and wood of the building. The high ceilinged room is flanked on several sides by large bookcases, the floors have old oriental carpets, and the oak tables are reminiscent of older days. Most of the patrons seemed to be locals, and the place was fairly crowded for a weeknight - good signs in the hospitality business.
We were happy with the variety of items on the menu, as well as the beers and wines available.
If we come back the Shrewsbury, we will come here again.
