Divided into two businesses, the Chinese restaurant and adjoining takeaway are a two minute walk from the theatre. Do not be put off by the dated decor, the menu offers a good selection of Cantonese style Chinese food and the staff are very welcoming and helpful.

The Third Place is an Indian Restaurant and Take Away in Frankwell, diagonally across from the entrance to Theatre Severn. If you are leaving the theatre after an evening performance, and you catch a waft of their Mati Special in pumpkin sauce, you will find yourself unable to resist. The restaurant has won awards for its food.

The Armoury  pub food

Reviews and location
This bar restaurant is very popular place to be and to be seen, rumoured to be the hangout for the royal princes while they were doing their helicopter training at nearby Shawbury. The old armoury building was moved brick by brick from its original location to the river side. Serves great traditional English food and some local beers. Lovely interior and good value.

Reviews and location
If you are willing to walk a mile or so from the theatre then you could work up a nice appetite on the way to The Peach Tree resturant, in the shadow of Shrewsbury Abbey. This well respected local restaurant offers traditional and European food, and the special offers make it great value. From a recent review, "From start to finish the evening was superb and we were looked after as if we had been going there for years, but it was our first time visiting Shrewsbury in quite a while. A great atmosphere and service with a genuine smile is definitely the order of the day - well done!"

Coach and Horses  pub food

Reviews and location
Great pub and restaurant near the town centre with a head chef who appeared on Master Chef, The Professionals. From a recent review, "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 - candles on the tables the night we ate there, exposed brick walls, wooden beams - wonderful atmosphere."

Shalimar  indian food

Reviews and location
Indian restuarant and takeaway in a beatiful old building next to Shrewsbury Abbey. A charming owner and good food at great prices. From a recent review, "Ate here last night - what can I say apart from what fantastic value! Four of us dined, using their £27.95 menu for two offer - Poppadum, any starter, any mains, rice or naan each plus a bottle of wine - brilliant. Food was excellent quality, not overfacing quantities and the staff were attentive without being in your face. Well worth a visit and I will certainly be looking to go back when next in Shrewsbury."

Loch Fyne  seafood restaurant
Contact: 01743 277140
Reviews and location
Loch Fyne is a national chain, but it does not act like one. A vibrant atmosphere and staff that genuinely care whether you are enjoying yourself. The interior is very light and airy and the tables and general atmosphere make you feel like you are sitting in someone's kitchen rather than in a fish restaurant. Make sure you look at the specials board.
