Darwin's Kitchen is the latest addition to Shrewsbury-based company The DiTella Group, also comprising of The Loopy Shrew and Darwin's Townhouse. Head Chef Daniel Brearley has carefully created a wide ranging menu offering guests a social dining experience in a warm and inviting environment, perfect for any occasion any time of day. Cosy up on the sofas with your morning coffee and paper and watch the world go by, catch up with friends in their tropical, leafy conservatory or treat your nearest and dearest to dinner in The Dining Room, a firm nod to Charles Darwin's roots and style.

The Kitchen offers an eclectic choice of small and big plates including British favourites. Tuck into hearty dishes like sticky orange and garlic rump of lamb with crushed garlic heritage potatoes or trio of Wenlock Edge sausages with root vegetable mash. Mini crab cakes with sweetcorn and scallion salsa or pork gyoza with Thai mushroom broth provide lighter options. Vegetarians can choose from dishes like buffalo mozzarella with confit of heritage tomatoes or beetroot and goats cheese arancini with aged balsamic.

You could round off with pear and blackberry Eton mess or blood orange meringue pie. The wine list has been carefully selected from local wine merchants, offering a list with a difference. There’s more choice with an enticing array of cocktails, beers and spirits.

Darwin’s Kitchen is a 6-minute walk from Shrewsbury Train Station. It also boasts four boutique bedrooms, including one luxurious suite and 3 superior doubles. Perfect for a midweek treat or weekend getaway.

    Booked a table for a Thursday lunch time and our experience was fantastic in every area. We got the train and the train station was within easy walking distance. The service was great, food was fantastic and the cocktail list was great too. I mentioned when booking that it was my boyfriends birthday and they made a real effort with his dessert which had Happy Birthday on the plate, a lovely surprise for both of us. We will definitely return.

    When I called the restaurant to move the time to later they had no booking for me at the time I had requested through Bookatable. I am now not very confident to book a restaurant again this way.

    Restaurant was great but if I hadn't called we would not have got in.
