About Bistro Jacques Shrewsbury
Authentic French Restaurants are few and far between these days but Bistro Jacques delivers in true Gallic style. Situated in the “Old Briggs Shoe-Shop” at the junction of Pride Hill and Mardol, Bistro Jacques is perfect for shoppers, theatre-goers and business types alike and boasts The Darwin Gates on its front step.
My wife had visited before and recommended you to me. It was the first visit for my elder daughter and I. We chose the wine and dine option with Boeuf Bourguignon for my main and Pasta Penne for Kate's. We each enjoyed our meal and declared the French Merlot as very drinkable. Thank you. We will be returning.
Really disappointed with the whole experience. When we arrived the table was not ready, then when we were seated, it took 10 mins before someone came over for a drinks order. Once ordered it took at least 10 mins for them to arrive and the menus arrived at the same time as the drink yet we were asked within about 3 minutes what we wanted! None of us had had chance to look! The food the came out was “ok” nothing to write home about and the servings are small. I don’t eat a lot and even I thought it was tight! One portion of vegetables between 4?! I had the pasta and my garlic bread was so burnt I couldn’t eat it. The pasta was bland and completely tasteless, could have been eating anything! Someone had the steak, which actually looked like it was half a steak not a full one and again, very very small portion!!! We had run out drinks and no waiter came by to ask if we wanted another. I felt sorry for our waiter as when he eventually could get to us, you could see he had been run ragged all evening and was genuinely very apologetic for the delay, not his fault but clearly poor management of the restaurant. I will not be rushing back and wouldn’t recommend to anyone either. I would have said this to a manager when leaving but was told they were “too busy”! The meal wasn’t exactly cheap either, for what we had, so I’d go somewhere else in future
As always had a lovely meal.brilliant value for money
Food is excellent but let down by appalling service. Starters took 25mins to arrive and when eventually did they were wrong ones. Mains arrived in timely fashion but side dish was forgotten, arrived just as we finished the meal. Dirty plates left uncollected for 20mins, at this point we decided to cut short our pre-booked 3 course theatre menu and complained. We were given a full refund on cost meal and a 10 pounds voucher towards another visit....
Such slow service, didn’t get offered drinks until 15 minutes after sitting down, menus then came much later, food slow to be served and then didn’t all come at once. It’s wasn’t even busy. £7 for a bit of bread, one thinly sliced ham and some bits of Brie, + fries rip off.
We had been for a pre-theatre meal before. Had no hesitation in going again. Recommend booking in advance, venue is very popular.
Excellent as always!
Excellent as ever
I can highly recommend Bistro Jacques! Great atmosphere, friendly staff and really good food at excellent prices. On a recent weekend in Shrewsbury we booked a table for 3 on the Friday night and enjoyed it so much we came back on the Saturday too!
Waiter was really good, made a great night
I usually give higher rating for food but this time the soup was very poor supposed to be broccoli and blue cheese but was very thin and tasteless. The other 2 courses were excellent. The service was very good as usual. Having been there numerous times this was the first time I was not fully satisfied with the food.
Excellent food and superb service, really nice atmosphere and great value .
Excellent... as always :)

Always an excellent lunch at Bistro Jacques. Never go anywhere else when on a shopping trip to Shrewsbury.
Lovely ambience, gorgeous fresh cooked food and great service. My favourite restaurant 😊
Very good friendly service and lovely food.
Excellent evening! Such welcoming staff. Thank you 😊
We enjoyed our visit very much but we were very disappointed that every time we visit there is never any bannoffe pie. We had a very disappointed 86 year old on our hands.
Our booking was 4.30 - empty restaurant but put to sit at the worst table for 2 - asked to be moved but told fully booked !!! After 5 mins we were offered a different table which we were v happy with - restaurant was busier but no where near fully booked by the time we left just after 6 - I did say that I would be writing a review for bookatable I feel this jogged them into moving us!! Also no table service to start as waiter had gone to Tesco to get bread for the table - it was fresh when it came 😄
Great food. Wine was disappointing - would have appreciated being asked if we wanted to try this before it was served. Staff very friendly, great atmosphere and friendly service. Very good!
