A stylish gastropub in Shrewsbury, The Loopy Shrew boasts a wine bar, coffee bar, and restaurant. Comfy leather couches and candlelit shelves make for cosy snug areas, while the contemporary style and international menu of the restaurant attract people from miles around.
The Loopy Shrew menu spans the entire day, starting with gourmet brunch options like toasted Wenlock Edge ham and Cheddar croissant, and signature full English breakfasts. Later in the day, there are small plates with exciting combinations of international flavours, such as pan-seared Brixham scallops with roast chorizo, Appleyards black pudding, pea purée and local asparagus. Succulent steaks and lobster thermidor also feature on the grill menu, with pub classics, seasonal salads, and a dedicated vegetarian menu also served.
Desserts at The Loopy Shrew Shrewsbury include British classics given inventive twists, such as vanilla crème brûlée with thyme crumble, poached rhubarb and rhubarb sorbet, while the bar serves up a selection of world beers, premium spirits and wines.
Also serving up hugely popular roasts on a Sunday, The Loopy Shrew is a 9-minute walk from Shrewsbury Rail Station.

Good service. Attentive staff. Tasty food.

Unusually for the Loopy Shrew, the meal was mediocre. While the Thai green curry was excellent, the fish and chips proved a disappointment with flaccid batter, thin fish and poor chips. We have eaten here before and found it very good so perhaps this was an off night.

Wonderful atmosphere, attentive service and fantastic food. Add a really good live act and what more could we have asked for to celebrate Friday!!

A little disappointing. The restaurant had been recommended but we didn’t feel that it was anything special. Two of our party had the fish and chips and they were not worth the price charged.

Table of 8 guests. Asked for a bottle of prosseco, which ended up being £25 and already opened before we could ask how much it was, Food took 45+ mins to arrive, waited 15 mins each time for our drinks. Bill came to over £250 and a £25 tip was added to the bill? I always tip if the service is great but Staff was hard to find, most standing around the bar hesitant to serve our table. which is a shame because we absolutely loved the food it was amazing! Very tasty and good quality.

Our experience wasn’t the best. Food average my wife’s meal was cold but she doesn’t like to complain. Added service charge in my opinion is not acceptable.
