About Darwin's Kitchen
Darwin's Kitchen serves food that's as local as possible.
Our Chefs source the freshest and highest quality
ingredients within 25 miles of Shrewsbury.
This ensures we are supporting people passionate about good food whilst also reducing our carbon footprint.
Our back restaurant is a small, intimate dining area, perfect for date night or small functions
The conservatory is bright and airy space, ideal for larger groups or afternoon tea!
Some of the staff were friendly & full of festive cheer, however, our staff member was very unhappy in her job and quiet abrupt! We were hoping to enjoy a family Christmas Eve meal but the meal wasn’t great...burger wasn’t cooked perfectly & hand cuts chips over cooked...drinks expensive especiallly soft drinks..disappointing service!
I feel safe to eat here during Covid the staff all wear masks are all excellent at their job and welcoming to the clients. The tables are well spaced out, and I observed the staff cleaning the tables very well after the tables were vacated I wouldn’t hesitate to go again during Covid times and afterwards when it’s over. I have been to other restaurants where masks were not worn but did not go back.
We had the most friendliest waitress , even on Christmas Eve everyone was trying there best to make sure we were happy and having a good time and catered to x Thank you so much ! Hope you all have great new year !
Well organised. Well social distanced. Delicious food.
Sorry but the food was most disappointing, in fact the beetroot humous was inedible!! The samosa starter was poor and as for the chicken Wellington this was really bad!! Not a hint of tarragon, a sauce that tasted like gravy granuals and pastry which was rock hard!! The chocolate tart although the filling was nice, obviously the same pastry chef made the pastry as it was of the same quality, rock hard and inedible! I did complain on the night, but not to a great degree as it was our first night out for many months and quite frankly I didn’t want to ruin our evening. But we will not be visiting you again, and I will not be happy to recommend you to any of my friends! We spent well over £100 !!!
The staff, particularly our waiter, were very friendly and helpful.
Quick, smooth and friendly service. The restaurant always looks clean and tidy with a lovely decor. Merry Christmas to you all and thank you for a lovely meal xx.
Throughly enjoyed the seafood platter. Excellent service
Peter was excellent. Very attentive but not overbearing. Polite, smiley and helpful.
Excellent food and service
Enjoyed our meal in a lovely atmosphere so much we booked for Christmas Eve.
Always love coming to Darwin’s when we come to Shrewsbury x
Katrina was especially helpful and friendly and made our night so much more special! Even went and got me mint for my mohohohoito! 👍🏻
Always lovely place to visit
Booked 2 nights for meals and drinks Friday was perfect in every way service quality of food etc, booked the Christmas menu for Saturday looked forward to it all day what an absolute let down, starter was fine then came the Christmas dinner stone cold turkey role and roasties looked and tasted like they were made the day before really disappointing made even worse my a young rude manager who blamed the fact I asked for 15/20 min break between the starter an main !! This was absolute none sense it was old dried out food simple as that, only the fact I didn't want to spoil my wife's night any further I decided not to make a scene pay up and leave, sorry I missed he gave me and my wife a drink we didn't even want --not asked just chucked on the table as a way of making things better .. No apology or acceptance it was dried up rubbish, the young red head manager is in the wrong job !! No customer service at all !! Shear arrogance which completely spoiled our Christmas special night out.
Looked after well by staff; great value for money; quality food and drinks. Definitely recommend.
Amazing place, excellent services excellent food

Super afternoon, great service, lovely fresh food.
Delicious Christmas meal
First time at Darwin's kitchen, impressed with the atmosphere the very pleasant surroundings & the lovely friendly staff. Looking forward to coming back soon.
Very polite welcome, understanding of my friends situation and had a private area. Lovely Mocktails and food. Staff couldn't of done enough for us. Thank you.
Had delicious cocktails at our table (due to Covid restrictions) followed by a beautifully presented and tasty meal. We had the traditional Sunday lunch the next day which is the best roast dinner I have ever eaten. The meat was so tender, wonderful roasties and a unusual and delicious variety of veg.
