CSONS roosts in the heart of historic Shrewsbury in a 16th-century building that combines Tudor panelling with zingy yellow banquette seating. It’s a labour of love for the four brothers behind it, and their excellent food is inspired by their ex-pat experiences. Crafted from local ingredients, the menu changes almost daily depending on the produce available that day.

The English breakfast is served with chorizo and chipotle sauce, granola with house lemon curd. Lunch might be labneh and caponata with flatbread, salted beef or hummus and red pepper sandwiches. Try the cinnamon buns or gluten-free chocolate and quinoa cake with a coffee. Dinner is served from Wednesday to Saturday and is a real flavour adventure (think sesame salmon with kimchi teriyaki) particularly Friday’s Mystery Menu.

There’s a lovely courtyard garden for soaking up the sun on fine days, and high chairs and colouring pages for little people.
