Just went for a midweek evening meal with my mother after some shopping in Shrewsbury. From the very moment we walked in we were greeted with a very warm welcome. Wonderful service throughout. And of course the food which was incredible - We had the fish pie and the monkfish. The kitchen has a glass front and there a lovely intimate vibe about the place. Will definitely be returning!!

I have been meaning to do this review for ages as we had an excellent lunch one Saturday afternoon. We popped in when they were just starting to think about closing for the afternoon. We both had fish pie; the pie was amazing, so tasty and full of fish. Dessert was super. The lady who served us was professional, helpful and attentive. She made the best white wine spritzer that I have ever tasted. We will definitely be back if we are lucky to get in; I have a feeling that word will travel and reservations will definitely be needed.

Went on a Fri night and we were greeted by the head of house making a joke the waitress was new so probably would not be very good. She could have in hindsight included everyone in that statement. Service was slow to order but when the starters arrived we were all hopeful of a great night as they were all very good. This is where the good news ends. Service slowed to a stop and when eventually the mains arrived they were all overcooked. We did not wait for dessert but to be fair one main was given FOC we had complained. Would try again but would want some more positive reviews first.

This was a first but not by any means last visit to this excellent new seafood restaurant, run by an Egyptian chef/owner and cooking deceptively simple, appetising tasty food in an open kitchen. The welcome is friendly from the moment of arrival and continues that way, with prompt, helpful, friendly service throughout, with little touches such as the pre-starter appetiser, and helpful advice on which dishes to choose. All the food is cooked fresh to order, and eating through the menu would be an interesting and challenging enterprise I may well take on. The scallops were beautifully presented and succulent (served with black pudding - wonderful), and the fish pie similarly life-enhancing. Dessert is very much the support act (well, it would be in a seafood restaurant) but the sticky toffee pudding did not let the side down - quite the contrary. Marvellous experience and excellent value. Definitely on the 'return to' and 'recommend to friends' list, sooner rather than later.

Sister and brother in law wanted to visit and who was I to refuse ?
The atmosphere was good the staff were friendly and informative and the open kitchen was cooking up some wonderful aromas
Chefs bread and dips were amazing and the wine flowed and then the starters arrived

All four of us had the scallops and what a joy they were,as silence descended on the table, as we devoured them
The gap between courses was just right and then x2 trout a sea bass and a tagliatelle arrived
Again just sheer perfection and nothing but wonderful looking and tasting food !
Here’s to the next time
Thanks Chef, Natalie and team
