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.
Attended an evening business dinner. (7 people) Service was extremely slow, we waited 40+ minutes for our mains, furthermore we sat there with empty glasses. It wasn't until we complained that we were asked if we wanted more. Other tables were served long before us. We were simply forgotten about!! Online booking system failed as max party size is 6. Tried calling but they have no physical telephone to answer so your calls go nowhere. This meant we had to make up the 7th seat and our only option was near the noisy kitchen. Very disappointed and wont be taking further business ventures there. Your better off going to the Armoury.
Thank you. Food was amazing and the Tuesday night special remains a hit.
We visited Bistro Jacques as a Half Term treat, following a recommendation from a friend. We were disappointed for the children, with the unimaginative menu, only to be offered ketchup by the waitress, then for her to return to the table to inform us there was no ketchup. A restaurant offering chicken nuggets and fish goujons but no ketchup in stock??? Myself and the other adult in the party both ordered Crème Brulee as a dessert, to be told they hadn't set, therefore had to make a second choice. Finally we were given the bill after a generally slow service for the waitress to have to disappear to collect a card machine but never returned and we had to head to till to grab another member of staffs attention to settle the bill who, to be honest could only be described as sullen which rounded off a pretty poor experience. We wont be returning.
Friendly staff. Family friendly. Excellent value food.
Excellent pre-theatre 3 course meal. Some of our party did not want starters, but were offered coffees after the meal instead, which I thought was a nice touch.
We always visit to take advantage of the pre theatre dinner menu prior to Theatre Severn shows and have never been disappointed!
Nice, pleasant atmosphere. Good service. Good menu choice, although more French cuisine would be good. Poor quantity of fries for the price of the side order & not enough garlic on the garlic bread.
Very nice, Eton mess best I've ever had!
Great food, service and atmosphere.
The only thing we didn’t enjoy very much was the chocolate hazelnut tart. It was way too savoury and quite hard. Other than that, everything was fantastic!
Food was good, service very friendly but had to chase side order which had been forgotten.
Just the best food always fantastic
Good meal, nice atmosphere, very reasonable, nice staff
Great value for money Service great
Fantastic meal, as always. This time we brought with us some friends who were equally impressed. Gorgeous food, excellent service and fantastic value for money.
We had the pre theatre menu. Very good choice on the menu and the food was very tasty. A lovely buzzy atmosphere and though the service was a bit slow this was just down to the volume of customers at the time. Go again? Yes!
Food and drink rating would be higher but my partner found a small, round piece of plastic in her Crumble desert. This was quite concerning. The waitress did apologise and made an adjustment to the bill.
Pre thatre meal, excellent quality and value.
All round good package. Excellent pre-theatre meal.
Always visit when in Shrewsbury and have never been disappointed.
The lady that served us was so friendly she really was lovely. She is a credit to you and did such a great job.
One of the better places for brunch in Shrewsbury
We have never been disappointed here and we have visited dozens of times!
Lovely lunch in very pleasant surroundings. Excellent value for money and service. Thank you for the birthday wine.
Great service and fantastic value
