Discover Shrewsbury this January
Try something new this Veganuary
Many of us enter the New Year with resolutions to help us detox, refresh and improve our lifestyles. For many, that means trying plant-based eating for a month as part of the popular Veganuary challenge. Whether you're a long-term herbivore or a carnivore trying something new, Shrewsbury boasts plenty of vegan restaurants to keep your taste buds entertained this month.
SAY HELLO TO NEW FACES
To brighten your January, why not check out these new arrivals to Shrewsbury, opened in the last two months?
Situated just off the Town Square on Market Street, this casual, family-friendly venue is the perfect spot for a catch up with friends, coffee with the little ones in tow (both two- and four-legged). Coffee shop by day, bar by night, the Ol'Chemist is fully pram and wheelchair accessible, and has plenty of seating for singles, couples and groups alike.
Giggling Squid's quirky restaurants are as much a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds, with bold and vibrant interiors, full of florals and colour celebrating Thailand’s rich landscape. Each dish is a work of love, exploring Thailand’s richness of natural ingredients from the land and sea and crafted by a team of expert Thai chefs.
The Restaurant at Theatre Severn
The Restaurant at Theatre Severn offers modern bistro dining in a premier pre-show location. With an exclusive 6 PM seating tailored for theatre patrons, the general public is also welcome to dine outside of our exclusive seating times. Head chef and owner Liam has been a fixture in Shropshire's culinary scene for 17 years.
