The team behind Côte Brasserie have a strong commitment to producing impeccable French dishes using only the best quality ingredients from regions around France and the United Kingdom, so as to pay homage to both of their influences. Creating classic brasserie fare is high on the agenda for this much-loved family of restaurants, alongside stellar service and an atmosphere rivalling the bistros in Paris, complete with eye-catching striped awning and chic interior that is synonymous with Côte Brasserie.
For a classic French experience we love starting the affair with prawn gratinée of king prawns in a white wine, garlic, chilli and tomato sauce with garlic and parsley croutons or steak tartare with shallots, capers, cornichons, egg yolk and cognac, before moving on to either the Breton fish stew with sea bream, mussels, clams and prawns, roast duck breast with gratin potato and griottine cherry sauce or a perfectly cooked steak to your liking with your choice of French housemade sauce to go with it. Whatever your choice, Côte Brasserie in Shrewsbury is guaranteed to satisfy those French cravings. You’ll find them in The Square in the heart of the Shrewsbury town centre. Bookings are essential.

Greeting was excellent. Attentive and very welcoming. Seated and made comfortable. Seen by various staff, so we were welcomed by many. Shown various menus and asked if we would like a drink. Our main waiter, was excellent. Enthusiastic & attentive, but not intrusive, or over familiar. Helped with menu choice and wine choice. Super chap with a very genuine personality. Just how we like our waiter to be. Starters were excellent. We’d like to see small amounts of bread on the table as a gesture for starters. Rather than decide it was needed, once the starter had arrived. Main courses were executed to perfection. Pork belly and Fillet steak cooked to perfection as requested. Thank you chefs. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their mains. Desserts were good, the orange crepe was delicious, I think presentation could be a little more creative though, so that the ice cream does not completely melt into cream and is a bit more 3D! All in all excellence. Thank you chefs, and in particular to our waiter who made the evening. Obviously someone steering the ship well. For those reasons we were happy to pay the automatically added service charge. However, I would like to hear this mentioned by whoever brings the menus and state that if you are unhappy with it then please feel free to say so. It can be a deal breaker for some. I always happy if it has been earned and worked for. Tonight most definitely.
Lovely atmosphere; friendly efficient staff and a great menu. The food is beautifully cooked and artistically presented. The restaurant is very fortunate in its location on the square in Shrewsbury and now, as we near the festive season, it is especially attractive, looking out on the Christmas lights. Prices are towards the higher end of the market, but it is a certainty for that special occasion.
Enjoyed meal staff very accommodating but thought prices were a little expensive. So not sure if my husband would be keen to return .Bistro Jaques in the town has similar menu but not as expensive
Great ambiance, welcoming and engaging staff, good and well-priced food. A very nice lunchtime experience right in the middle of Shrewsbury. Couldn't be better! Thank you!
This was my first visit, together with three friends, to Cote Brasserie. Although I had read a very favourable review in the local paper, our Briiish and French dining experiences over many years meant that we kept an open mind. However, as we approached the resaurant we felt re-assured by the welcoming atmosphere. Having reserved on line, we were immidiately made to feel very welcome and at ease. We were ushered to our table without delay and we could see that, although the resteraunt was very busy, the staff were going to ensure that our experience would be first class. We were impressed with the choice of items on the menu and all thoroughly enjoyed the chosen high quality and carefully prepared dishes. The food, service and atmophere met our highest expectations We will be returning to Cote again in Shrewsbury and perhaps other destinations.
We ordered the set lunch which turned out to be quite mediocre and not very French in our opinion, which should be valid, as we have travelled extensively in France and eaten in many French restaurants. The starter of langoustine tails was a small portion of fish with a large quantity of gloopy mayonnaise. The chicken walnut salad main course consisted of alot of lettuce and some very dry strips of chicken. The dressing was acceptable, but rather bland in flavour. The choice of desserts was small. We did not see any fresh vegetables being offered on this menu, which made the price look expensive for what we got on our plates, and in comparison to other similar eating places nearby made it a poor deal. In addition, when we spotted that there is a 12.5 % service charge included in the bill we were quite taken aback, as we always leave a tip when eating out, and are generous if the service has been exceptional. But we do not feel that we should have to pay automatically. It did say that this was optional, but when dining within earshot of other people it is not always easy to change this without appearing mean. We were very aware that this is one of a chain of restaurants, where the staff have a 'script' and the eye is very much on marketing, but for us the truly personal touch was missing, and we will be going back to our favourite French style bistro soon where we know we will get seasonal vegetables and a good selection of desserts.
This was my second visit,this time at 8 pm so the restaurant was much busier. Greeted and shown to our table by a very welcoming gentleman. There were three of us in our group we all had main courses and all delicious , lovely and hot too with a few different meals to chose from my last visit.We had a bottle of the house red which was smooth and nice to drink on its own or with the meals. The restaurant did seem a little noisy this time ,and not quite as relaxing as my last visit however it was busy and that can only be a good thing. On bringing the bill the waiter pointed out the optional service charge to us which we didn't pay but left our own tip which we feel much more comfortable with. Look forward to another visit soon.
went in with a open mind and came out with no doubt that I will return, every thing from the service(a young man was shadowing and being trained by a more experienced staff member) to the portion sizes to the execution of the cooking, a nice touch was that we decided to have a second bottle of wine near the end of our meal and they were very happy for us to pay the bill then sit outside with our wine and finish the bottle which gave us time to have a important conversation in relative privacy.
We have been to Cote Brasseries in London and Manchester and much enjoyed the experience. This was our first visit to the recently opened Shrewsbury branch. We were not disappointed: the set lunch menu was excellent value for money, the setting and brasserie layout afforded a good view of the Square and the staff were attentive, cheerful and knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu. This brasserie is well worth a visit if you want an outstanding 'no frills' lunch and I am sure the evening menu, albeit more expensive, will be an equally enjoyable experience.
We were treated extremely professionally throughout our visit, with just the right amount of attention from staff. We had a variety of main courses and desserts between us and all guests thought the food was excellent. We had previously visited CB although living miles from Shrewsbury. However, it was the first visit for our two friends who have lived in Shrewsbury of most of their lives. They are true converts now and you will certainly see them again! We also are looking forward to our next visit, Thank you,
