Food was very well presented and was tasty. I never thought vegan food could have such flavor.
The service was great and the staff are very friendly. Good value for money
Loved it coming from a non vegan I am converted to embracing non meat/diary eating.
Speakers can be a bit loud and their is noise conflict with the buskers.
An absolutely brilliant find. Fabulous service, wonderful food, great surroundings. Could not fault it.
Amazing just a tad dark inside.
Lovely tasty food and lovely staff x
very nice food and service. the place looks stunning
Having been plant based for 7 months it was so nice to be able to choose from a full menu! Food was exceptional and so was the service! It’s my new favourite restaurant in Chester.
Amazing food and even better service. Definitely my new favourite spot
Our first visit to Shrub in Chester and wow, we will certainly be going again. Attentive service, along with a great ambience and food that’s finger licking tasty!! Amazing, well done all!
Great ambience fabulous service and the food was spectacular.
My 3rd visit and I will be back soon
Amazing food and drink, friendly helpful staff and reasonable prices
Really wonderful service and the food…. so tasty! Well seasoned and spiced to perfection. The cauliflower bites, ramen and blueberry cheesecake was pure heaven
Choice of music could be a bit calmer for dinner time x
No preaching just delivering amazingly delicious vegan food!
Really lovely place with excellent food. Not to be missed. X
Lovely staff, food was really good, sat under speaker which was a bit noisy for me, but otherwise a nice time was had.
Great restaurant, fantastic cocktails and great food!
Excellent vegan food and great service, just gave the overall 4 stars due to the music being a little on the loud side (we’re over 50 so can’t take it!) Having been to a number of very good vegan eateries I’m rating the Shrub Burger as probably the best vegan burger I’ve had, also recommend the Corn Ribs (amazing sauce) and the addition of optional Jackfruit on the fries.
Nice food and venue. Staff were really nice. Would recommend the mushroom calamari
We had an amazing time at shrub, the staff were wonderful, the food was so so good and the whole atmosphere made the evening so lovely:)
Delicious vegan and veggie food with amazing cocktails and soft drinks, a real modern feel accompanied by friendly and helpful staff. Plenty of non meat substitute meals which is brilliant for a vegan restaurant.
Overall great food great people and a great atmosphere !
Excellent vegan food in a really central location and very reasonably priced. Restaurant was fab and the service was top notch. Mojitos outstanding! Highly recommended and will definitely visit next time we are in Chester
Five stars across the board. Lovely environment, excellent service but most importantly amazing food. I only wish I lived closer to Chester.
Perfect as usual. Delicious food, great ambiance and a youthful vibe.
Love this place! Love the food, love the staff and will keep coming back
As always, just amazing!
Great place! Manager and our server Amelia made us feel relaxed and welcoming. Food was awesome and a delight
Such a lovely find. Absolutely amazing to be able to choose anything off the menu safe in the knowledge I wasn't eating animal products. The staff were lovely and just the right amount of attentive and the food was truly delicious. Can't wait to return next time we are in the area!
First visit looked after very well great table top quality food and service definitely visit again
We sat outside, good atmosphere. Plenty of choice on the menu and an interesting drinks selection.
All ok apart from the unnecessarily loud music spoiling what should have been a relaxing meal outside. We didn't stay for dessert because of it, despite asking for the music to be turned down slightly.
Excellent food delivered by helpful staff.
The staff member who served our meal was polite, friendly, and extremely attentive.
Gorgeous food every time I come here. Excellent setting too. Staff always super helpful .
Really enjoyed our dinner at Shrub. Outside area was lovely in the nice weather, staff were great and food was delicious. We all had different things and all really enjoyed them!
+ Lovely undercover balcony (as well as indoor seating), good service, great food.
- Limited menu and music was at times too loud for us. Service charge automatically added to the bill, something I'm not a fan of... I'd rather decide what to tip, depending on the service received.
Great service. Extremely friendly and informative - even to the point of cooking techniques. Food was outstanding - can’t wait to visit again!
Simple booking system. Friendly staff. Excellent food.
Excellent service, extremely hospitable, and much attention to detail and presentation of the meals. Well done guys👍
In 30° heat, I wanted a relaxed and calm spot for lunch with some friends. Shrub’s shady outdoor seating area was perfect, with beautiful plants everywhere and lovely music playing — it was like being on holiday! Ice cold water was served immediately by the friendly, attentive waitress, who pointed out the scannable (covid-sensible) menu. I ordered the falafel salad and focaccia side - both of which were great! The falafel salad was a generous dish, with beetroot and some delicious hummus and almonds - just yummy. Coffees were spot on and everything was beautifully plated and promptly served. Staff were very accommodating and the ambience was lovely. Will definitely be returning and recommending to friends.
We loved the food and being sat outside on a sunny day on the Chester rows is enjoyable. Everything was delicious and I especially enjoyed the desert.
