We list 344 food businesses in Shrewsbury and Shropshire and currently have 1018 independent food reviews. You can stay up to date with the latest food news in by joining us on Facebook.
Another way to find places to eat is to view our fully interactive and detailed map. OK it's actually Google's map, but we customised it and filled it with delicious treats to make you feel hungry. We start you off looking at the centre of Shrewsbury, but zoom out from street level to view the whole county and pick up some great farm shops, pubs and restaurants along the way.
For full contact details and reivews of each establishment, click on the icons. Unlike most online directories we don't take the lazy option and place icons by postcode. We know Shrewsbury like the back of our hand, so we'll tell you exactly where to find what you are looking for, not just the street it is on.
We read a story last week about MP Daniel Kawczynski holding talks with the chain Pret a Manger, in an attempt to get them to open a branch in Shrewsbury. On the one hand he listens to his constituents who have said they would like the chain to open here - just as lots of people would rather eat in McDonald's than Alfie and Billys Cafe at the top of Wyle Cop, and would rather have a coffee in Starbucks than at Off The Square on Market Street. The trouble is, by going down the Pret a Manger route, we / Mr Kawczynski are supporting neither local businesses, nor the local economy.
First is was meat, and now fish. Reports today suggesting that seven per cent of fish is "mislabeled". And by that they mean sold fraudulently as one variety when it is actually another. The unions representing fish and chip shops, and UK fishermen have been quick to suggest more transparency in fish labelling is needed, but realistically, how much will that help? Without testing every piece of fish at every stage of the supply chain, there is always going to be someone willing to cheat the system to make more money. It is the ugly face of capitalism.
Well it is all change in Frankwell as this area of town strengthens its claim on the title of the Food Quarter of Shrewsbury. Frank and The Third Place have moved a few yards each. A new deli has opened this morning on the Frankwell roundabout (not literally) and the Olive Tree Bistro seems to be flourishing just across the road from it. The iconic building left vacant by Frank will soon become the Sugar Spoon patisserie, and presumably someone will move into the restaurant left vacant by The Third Place. The Sugar Spoon becomes the 400th venue we have added to eatShrewsbury since we began back in 2006!
Last night Arthurs restaurant based at Fordhall Farm near Market Drayton was officially opened. We were kindly invited and shown around the old dairy, which now showcases a delightfully intimate restaurant. The chefs were presenting some seriously good organic canapes, small tasters of the main menu offerings, that were enough to convince us that we need to head back and eat there very soon. Their beef, pork and lamb comes from the surrounding fields, and they will happily cater for vegans too if you let them know when you book. Click the above link for more information.

Saturday 11th May 2013
Had a delicious pre-theatre meal which was more than worth the price of £11.95 for 3 courses. A generous pre-meal appetizer of fresh French bread and butter was followed with a delicious risotto for myself and black pudding for my brother. We were pleasantly surprised to see the large portions presented...

Organic grocery store.
Tuesday 9th April 2013
This is the best grocers for miles around. Found it by accident at Christmas time because I was collecting an order of the wonderful bread from the Shrewsbury Bakehouse a few doors down the road. I wish they would open a branch nearer my hoe in Bishop's Castle! Fantastic veg, fruit,...
