After a stroll around town shopping and in need of a warm drink and sit down we popped into the Lion. What a nice surprise a spacious interior with an old world feel and cosy bar. We sat on a comfortable sofa and ordered coffee and cake from friendly staff, reasonable price and very much appreciated. Recommended.

Wonderful welcome, wonderful meal in a beautiful room, and the waiting on staff were lovely. A very relaxing atmosphere, enjoyed our evening out very much. After our meal we went through to sit in the lounge which was so warm and cosy on a very cold night.

These deals are something we do on a fairly regular basis, and I have to say that in general they are excellent value. The Lion is in Shrewsbury, which is a lovely old town to visit. There are many places of interest, a good... More
