Lovely, ideally located hotel in the centre of Shrewsbury. Old hotel that has been really tastefully modernised. Beautiful rooms, gorgeous breakfast and lovely atmosphere. Bar man was very good at making cocktails!!

Booked to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel is an old coaching house located on the Wyle Cop near the English Bridge. The Hotel has been modernised but due to it's age the floors are not level and there are a large number of stairs and levels to negotiate which we found added to it's charm but would not be... More

I have to admit that I was a bit nervous when I booked the Lion + Pheasant as I have had bad experiences with hotels above bars & restaurants in the past as all too often I have been kept awake by late night revellers. And the discovery of ear plugs in the bedside cabinet didn't seem to bode well.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Lion and Pheasant for 2 nights, July 11 and 12. It is a smartly modernised and well located old establishment. We had asked for a ground floor room because I am currently handicapped by a leg injury and breathlessness. On arrival we were allocated a 2nd floor room - there is no lift... More

I'm so sorry that when you arrived on the evening of the 13 July our ground floor accommodation was unavailable. I recommend that in future you request in advance of your arrival that you require a ground floor room. Unfortunately , when you arrived all the ground and first floor accommodation were fully occupied and we could not offer you... More

excellent staff, excellent room, excellent food....could do with a little bit more attention to detail though (half painted skirting board and paint stripped form window sill) but all in all a very nice stay with really nice food. My other problem was room 22 no wi fi

From my first contact with the Lion and Pheasant Inn to the point of checking out, every single person who works at the Inn was utterly lovely. The rooms were spotless and the bed was more comfortable than my own. They also very graciously switched out the feather/down bedding (which I'm allergic to) and replaced it with lovely, fresh cotton... More

This Hotel is no longer a Mr & Mrs Smith recommended property nor are they accepting AMEX.(Despite our deposit being paid that way, forced to pay with a very expensive overseas Visa card) The receptionist totally ignored us as we struggled in through the narrow front doors with 4 suitcases (She was Facebooking on her phone) the duty manager did...

We were reminded on a recent visit just what a lovely town Shrewsbury is. Frankly often overlooked yet more rewarding, than some historic and popular cities and towns on the tourist map. We were delighted in finding the contemporary and stylish Lion & Pheasant, easy walking distance to the historic centre, close to the river, great restaurants and shopping. We... More

We had the last available room , small but perfectly adequate for an overnight stay en- route to a holiday destination in north wales. The ground floor bar area and the first floor dining area were excellent and the food we had for our evening meal and breakfast were really very good. We would highly recommend it as it is... More

Booked to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it couldn't have been nicer. The hotel was immaculate and our lovely room overlooked the English bridge and River Severn. The food on offer was excellent with superb service from all of the well trained staff. The only thing that put a dampener on our stay as the rain, but you can't have... More
