I had the steak sandwich and chips. I was expecting a slightly chewy steak but thought I'd give it a go. Omg it was divine and the chips, the best I've ever tasted. Definitely going back and will be my regular haunt in Shrewsbury. Excellent

We stayed here for one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were incredibly friendly and thoughtful - a special mention for Megan who was just lovely. The food in the restaurant was very good indeed and the service faultless despite being short staffed that evening. Our room was very nice, clean and comfortable. It was above the kitchen so a...

Our car broke down we had to stay the night. Not looking our best the welcome at a very relaxed reception! Wasn't as welcoming as it could have been! Our room had a double aspect top floor view of the street and river which was lovely. It could have done with a thorough clean... Dust ....and the unmentionable hairs on... More

Have been in the lion and pheasant on Bank holiday Monday, and the service from Bryn on the bar was excellent, he offered me excellent service including a huge index of gin and tonics which I love. The service from Jess from our meal was outstanding, however the staff were rushed off there feet, but still gave phenomenal service. Couldn't... More

Booked in here for a short break to shrewsbury. Looked lovely on the Internet and did not disappoint in reality. Booked via mr and mrs smith and were given a free half bottle of wine on arrival. The car park is very tight and it is advisable to approach from town rather than the bridge. Once in we got a... More

Stayed at the Lion & Pheasant with friends for a quick 'get away' short break. Good location in relation to Shrewsbury itself and easy to access from out of town. Parking is behind the hotel - but be warned it is VERY tight in terms of access into/out of and actual manoevre space. Once inside a very pleasant and calm... More

Unknown to us, this is a Mr & Mrs Smith hotel. Lovely surprise, boutiquey and quirky. On arrival, we were told we had been upgraded to a suite. Wonderful! Narrow twisty stairs to the second floor. Note, no lift! We managed the climb, but it's quite steep! Stepped down into a large suite with a huge cushioned day-bed. White wall,... More
