Meat is king at Darwin’s Kitchen, a grill restaurant and bar with a penchant for pork and a soft spot for steak. Entertainment is also on the menu, with live music and open mic nights regularly taking place.

Tuck into a three little pigs burger, gloriously crammed with pulled pork, crispy belly pork, baconnaise and crispy onions, or tackle the signature 16oz Porterhouse steak with a choice of sauce. Sticky pork chops and pulled pork burritos are equally irresistible, whilst Moroccan spiced lamb or Mexicana chicken salad provide lighter options. Vegetarians aren’t neglected with the ultimate mac ‘n’ cheese, five bean chilli burger and a vegetarian platter all up for grabs on the dedicated vegetarian menu.

Darwin’s Kitchen in Shrewsbury also serves an enticing array of cocktails, wines and beers. Guests can sample these from the light, modern restaurant or in the conservatory and courtyard.

Pairing quality food with live entertainment,Darwin’s Kitchen is a 6-minute walk from Shrewsbury Train Station.

    The initial drinks were a bit slow in arriving, even though it was quiet, and had to chased up. The meal was very tasty and good value. The chicken fajita was absolutely delicious with lovely sauces and the steak was perfectly cooked and tender. The atmosphere was great, a good buzz but not noisy with good background music. The interior was attractive and quirky, and the staff were very pleasant and attentive.

    Friendly and fast service. Very good food. Main courses were very large. Noisy, bustling atmosphere.

    Unfortunately it was a shambles from start to finish. Music so loud in the bar you couldn't hear yourself speak. No staff on the bar. Mopping floor leaving it slippery with no apologies or comment. Really poor staff apart from the poor girl who served us. Not her fault. At £20 for an 8oz rump steak I expected a lovely meal. Steak overcooked and flavourless, meagre portion of soggy chips, rubbish salad and raw tomato that was described as sloiw cooked! Complained and presented with a better steak but it really wasn't good. My friend had chicken fajitas which were also less than satisfactory. A real disappointment. I felt there was a total lack of staff training and a pretty poor chef.
