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.

    We requested a quiet table and we got a lovely table tucked away from all the noise. The food was delicious and the staff very attentive, whilst giving us lots of space. Lovely evening - thank you!

    Amazing food, steak melted in my mouth, by far the best steak I have probably ever had. The restaurant was modern, light and airy. Really good service too.

    I can only speak about our experience on Friday evening and as a group of six 70 year olds. We wont be going back! It was so noisy we couldn't have a conversation whilst sat at our table to eat. There was either loud piped music or a lady playing a keyboard and singing very loudly and not very well. Whilst we are very happy to listen to background music we didn't appreciate being blasted out. Food was ok, service was very good, but couldn't wait to leave the restaurant.

    Very enjoyable meal. There were eight of us and we chose two of the sharing platters for "Starters" - they were excellent - lots of different tastes and plenty of it.
    Also, very enjoyable main course - all eight of were very happy, and pleasantly surprised at the total bill. Can't go wrong.
