Wonderful meal. The best I've had this Christmas 6 altogether ! The whole experience is fabulous. Considering the students have only done 1 term, the whole thing was wonderful. Thank you
We appreciated the welcoming mulled wine. Food quality excellent but portions for main course would have been minute if we had not asked for more. E.G One roast potato hardly seems an adequate portion. The waiters did not seem sure whether they were allowed to give more but we needed it. Service was polite and generally well done but why does gravy and sauce have to served by spoon when using a gravy boat and pourable bowl . It was too far for some waiters to reach and so there were several spillages. I heard the explanation that the students were being taught how to serve in the French style ; if so then they were not given suitable implements. The coffee was hot but very weak and poor taste. Mince pies were beautiful. We all had a good time.
Really nice atmosphere on arrival. Good to still find a restaurant serving 50 covers with linen table cloths and napkins in this day and age. Staff putting their training to good use. Good service all round with trainee chefs talking to diners and wanting feed back. First class.
The service on previous visits has been excellent but yesterday I felt it was somewhat chaotic. Perhaps the introduction of the Christmas menu was a contributing factor together with fewer students due to absenteeism. Let’s hope it all starts coming together over the next few days. Keep up the good work, see you again soon.
Christmas lunch. A mixup with the wine was sorted as the students were very well supervised. Students well taught to flambé the Christmas pudding at the table.
We appreciated that the servers were very new to the job and we have scored accordingly. No doubt next term they will be much more confident. They were all very pleasant.
Used after my mums funereal, for family and friends to meet and have a light bite. Service was professional and I couldn’t fault it, from the initial booking to the atmosphere whilst we were there. Would highly recommend, as would anyone who came. Thank you for a great experience.
Amazing, place, amazing staff and students, delicious food. Can't recommend Origins enough.
We were a group of 10 former students of Radbrook College, pre 1977. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. The students do an excellent job.
We did ask for the duck to be cooked “well done” but it had to returned twice - both occasions there was blood oozing from the meat. The staff were very helpful in resolving this in a way that exceeded our expectations - by offering others at the table extra to eat so that our friend wanting well cooked duck did not have to eat by herself!
We were very impressed with the service,food and atmosphere.
Superb in all ways, as ever: the best value in Shrewsbury, and that's not just because of the incredible value. If the bill were twice as much, I'd still give the same ratings. Many thanks.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here. The only slight criticism we would have was that the beetroot starter and the prawn starter were both too salty.The staff were charming and the meal overall was very good and excellent value for money.
