Dining out in Shrewsbury

This August sees the launch of the Government's Eat Out to Help Out Scheme. Every Mon, Tues & Weds between Aug 3 & 31 get up to 50% off your food and non-alcoholic drinks up to a total value of £10 per person if you eat or drink in. Click here to discover which Shrewsbury businesses are taking part in the initiative.

The first weekend in July saw the reopening of many of Shrewsbury's hospitality businesses. Eateries, bars, cafes and many others are all ready and waiting to satisfy your cravings.

Shrewsbury's businesses are implementing measures to ensure the safety of both customers and staff. These measures may include reduced opening hours, use of PPE and reduced customer numbers allowed inside. We request that all customers follow the guidelines laid out by the individual businesses they are visiting, as well as respecting social distancing outside wherever possible. This way we can all work together to keep our town safe while enjoying all the fantastic things Shrewsbury has to offer!
