Amazing, gorgeous, tasty food ! Lovely, efficient, well trained staff and the ambience is perfect - in and out! Love the place and would highly recommend!
We just love this place! The food is fantastic and the restaurant is beautiful and relaxing. We can’t wait to come back
Beautiful Sunday roast and cheesecake. Definitely going to go back and try the doughnuts
We went to shrub for a few drinks on Saturday night. Where we were originally sat was quite cold however the waiter moved us to another part of the bar/restaurant which was slightly warmer with a better atmosphere. I still didn’t feel warm enough though!
I like the design of the place and they do nice cocktails.
Super safe and comfy
Amazing food, great venue, lovely staff! Would highly recommend, great addition to Chester!
I loved everything about the place and the food was amazing.
Booked here for coffee and cake with my elderly mum-in-law. Sat her by the heaters with a lovely view of Eastgate Street. Delicious cheesecake - great place to meet as it’s outdoors but felt cosy.
Attentive staff, great food and great vibe. Good value as well, full marks.
Fantastic meal as ever at Shrub, lovely friendly service , pity not busier with the current restrictions but still lovely atmosphere, a cool and relaxing vibe and excellent playlist. Will be back. Thank you.
Great plant based food, friendly service, first visit, will be back. Good measures in place to ensure COVID-19 safety, but still felt relaxed and enjoyed our visit.
Food was delicious and plentiful. Particularly enjoyed the cauli bites starter, well cooked, tasty and large. Really nice fries.
The surroundings were tasteful and relaxing. Town was empty on a rainy evening but there were enough diners in for a nice atmosphere.
Service was pretty good; verging on over-attentive at times, but better than not being able to attract service when needed.
Overall a very enjoyable evening and looking forward to going again.
Really lovely brunch spot! I got the sausage sandwich and it was delicious
Very impressed by this place. The staff were very nice and friendly and the food was amazing
Have never had vegan food before- it was absolutely delicious. Great covered heated outdoor area on rows and spacious lovely indoor area too. Open 10am through to evening. Would recommend you try it.
We sat outside and it was very pretty. There was great food and service!
Very interesting menu, mostly very tasty, however seitan Schnitzels were a disappointment.
Waiting staff were very pleasant and overall experience was delightful
Without doubt the best vegan food I’ve ever eaten. The cauli bites and corn ribs were absolutely incredible and the shrub kebab was just as amazing. I’m still dreaming about it days later!! Honestly couldn’t rave about this enough, and will defo be making the 90 mile trip just to come back.
Amazing food! Staff are really nice, would recommend!
Staff were great, observing the COVID rules. The food & wine were awesome & most definitely will be going back 👍👍
Awesome food. Lovely service. Great value. Highly recommended.
The food was delicious, especially the kebab and the stuffed pasta shells. We also got the katsu fries which were so good and some doughnuts to go (amazing!!)
Zero regrets about dining here and I can't wait to come back and try more of the menu. It's been a while since I've ate somewhere and felt zero regrets on spending the money because I could've made it at home, but this place was different, the menu had a great variety and it was so worth it
I met my two friends for brunch, we sat outside and it was just lovely, sausage sandwiches, cheesecake, doughnuts, coffee and kefir all delicious. Sweet and funny waitress too. My fourth visit now and already looking forward to the next.
This is the second time I have eaten at shrub. The menu is interesting and everything I have tried so far has been really tasty and well presented. Great to have a lovely vegan restaurant in Chester.
Amazing atmosphere, amazing food and great price and great staff. Always such a lovely place to visit
Fantastic service, amazing food. Highly recommended
Really enjoyed the food, especially the celeriac Katsu curry!
Very nice atmosphere. Beautifully done out restaurant. Good service and nice staff. Had to wait for the main course food though 40 minutes, which took the shine off an otherwise 5 star experience. The staff said this was a blip and to be fair other diners seemed to be doing better than us!
Great vegan food and lovely staff. The cauliflower ribs were a great idea!
Really nice place and tasty food! Had a small issue over the temperature of the food. However, we didn’t raise this until the end. The manager dealt with it really well and we left happy. We will definitely return.
Amazing vegan choices , lovely service. The interior has been set up beautifully , with such a calming colour palette . Would recommend the cauliflower bites starter !
Have heard nothing but good things about shrub! Very excited to take my partner here and try beyond meat burger and it did not disappoint! All staff members friendly faced and happy to assist in explaining the dishes.
Will be coming back again incredibly soon 10/10
We really enjoyed our visit to Shrub, the choice of food was so amazing, it was hard to choose from the menu! I had the Celeriac Katsu Curry and it was great!! We would highly recommend Shrub to everyone!
Best Vegan restaurant in the Northwest, creative owners, great atmosphere a must visit for any Vegan or Vegetarian.
A lovely new restaurant, you wouldn't even know some of the dishes were plant based as they were super tasty. Great service.
We waited around 30mins for our food which is absolutely fine but once we got our food it was cold...
The flavours were awesome so we enjoyed that part but it definitely was let down by it being cold... Would of sent it back but I hate to since I work in the same line of work.
Staff were amazing and I would come back again
Burgers were great, filling and very realistic to meat if that’s what you’re going for. The inside area is nice and warm with comfortable seating and social distancing measures in place. Staff are friendly and check on you throughout the evening. Overall an enjoyable experience!
Amazing Food! The staff were all really friendly and the service was quick. I've been a few times now and even my non vegan friends have been back!
Really tasty food, great for people wanting to try vegan food out
Staff were lovely and welcoming, and as asked when booking staff brought out a happy birthday dessert for my husband.
Definitely return. Thank you
