Had a burger here and it tasted home made , very tasty with skin on fries, could have done with s bit more salad with the meal. Tables are a bit small and if felt quite cramped. But still pleased with the whole experience.

Had lunch with friends. Chose Caesar Salad with chicken which was very basic. Chocolate tart for sweet was lovely though and the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc was very good. Staff were helpful and attentive

Thoroughly delighted to find high quality cocktails at this friendly bar & restaurant. The guy with the moustache was attentive and explained the dairy free menu really well. Would highly recommend if visiting Shrewsbury for a good start to your night out.

Called into this place a couple of times during a weekend in Shrewsbury. Really good cocktails and a nice vibe about the place. Food looked great although we were just in for drinks. Young waiter with the dickie bow was very pleasant and helpful.

“The sun is always rising somewhere in the world” A team of chefs who have drawn their inspiration from their travels and memories serve up their recollection of global street food and sharing dishes. We bring these creations back to our home and recreate them here for you – hoping to take you on a journey of flavour and excitement. Our food is essentially served in what you may refer to as ‘tapas’- choose about 3 dishes each and we will send them to the table as and when each of them is ready. We would recommend you choose 1 dish from each the ‘LAND’, ‘EARTH’ and ‘SEA’ – It’s all about sharing and having a little taste of everything in a social environment with your friends or family.
