Coach and Horses
Great pub and restaurant near the town centre. They have themed food nights. At the moment Thursdays are fish day. Check before booking though as this may change.

Laura Clarke's review
We had dinner at the Coach and Horses on Friday 16th Oct 2009 and we were really impressed!
Me and my partner both chose to have the Slow cooked belly pork with dauphinoise potatoes, caramelized shallots and a puy lentil jus - which was outstanding - far betetr than your usual 'pub food' but that may be because the Coach and Horses is a pub with a resturant in it really - you can just go there for drinks in the bar areas or dine in the resturant area which as a wonderful 'Shrewsbury' feel - candels on the tables the night we ate there, exposed brick walls, wooden beams - wonderful atmosphere.
The service was friendly and spot on.
We couldn't help ourselves to have desserts - maybe because there are chalk boards listing their deseerts on the walls so you can't help but miss them! Good idea there. I had the cheese and biscuits and Mark had the trifle. Both were ok - not great - but ok. Not much cheese compared to the amount of biscuits - but hey - it was enjoyable!
We got there at 7pm and managed to get a table without booking - however it was full by 9pm so i would say book if you want to eat there after 7pm really.
We plan to go there again for sure - we were very impressed.
Me and my husband went to the Coach and Horses on saturday evening because we wanted to sample the cooking of BBC2's Masterchef: The Professionals chef John Barton. We were both very impressed with the quality of the food, I had the whole partridge with celericac dauphinoise and thyme jus and my husband had the slow roast brisket of beef with shropshire blue mash and wild mushroom jus, both were excellent. I would recommend the coach and horses to anyone as long as the Masterchef is cooking!!
You will find this fantastic Shrewsbury pub on the corner of Cross Hill and Swan Hill. It serves great regional ales and it also has a good reputation for food. When I ate there we had very generous portions and good service from very professional staff. It's more like a restaurant within a pub than a pub that serves food. I'd definitely recommend it, though worth booking as it gets busy.
The Coach & Horses on a Friday lunchtime often sees me at the bar. The beer is good and, last Friday, the food was excellent. Both the Caesar salad and the faggots and mash were delicious. There always seems to be a friendly welcome and the customers are good-natured too! It's a firm favourite.
Paul Gough's review
My wife and I had our wedding anniversary meal in there on 6/4/2017. Food was excellent and the service very attentive. Well worth a visit and will definitely visit again. Good plus point was a Happy Hour between 17:00 - 19:00 on certain drinks.
Sue Tortoise's review
This must be the best traditional Sunday Lunch carvery in Shrewsbury town centre. (A good choice of desserts, too.) Booking is essential for Sunday Lunch as it is so popular.
One of my favourite places to eat in Shrewsbury because it's cosy, has really excellent food and lots of real ale. Especially recommended when there's live music !

Nice range of Shropshire brewed beers, friendly staff, and the food isn't bad either. We enjoyed our visit and will be back soon. Thank you.
