We stayed here for over a week in June and found the Lion and Pheasant ideal. It was easy walking distance from the center of Shrewbury and our room was clean, comfortable, light and airy. The building is certainly "quaint" with sloping floors, exposed beams and so on. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful in all parts of the... More

The Lion and Pheasant is an unusual building – very unusual. To get to our rooms we went up stairs, and down and up again. Fascinating but tiring. When we arrived (there were three of us) we were welcomed very warmly although our rooms were not quite ready, we had arrived earlier than anticipated. Nevertheless that staff were very obliging...

We stayed here last month for a night on the way to Wales and were so glad we did. We arrived late and the kitchen was about to shut but they couldn't have been more accommodating to us. The food was simply delicious with a lovely little amuse bouche to begin with. The room was light and airy and although... More

We stayed at this hotel last weekend. We thought it was lovely and the rooms were just perfect. It had great atmosphere and was busy both nights we were there. We had an evening meal here the first night, however, the service was actually very slow, waited a total of over two hours throughout the three courses, but when each... More

I have now been to the L&P twice. The first was for a wedding last year - there were only 40 guests (with named seating) and yet the head waitress walked around with a printed spreadsheet asking what we'd ordered, then the SLAB of pork (approx. an inch thick) appeared it was so unappealing and difficult to cut "daintily" that...

We stayed on a Saturday night and had been pre-warned by telephone that road works were scheduled for the Sunday morning and that it might be noisy in the early morning, which was a kind thought. The ads state that the hotel has free parking on site but it fails to state that this is extremely limited. As we did... More

This hotel delivers every aspect of your stay at an exceptional level. The decor, room comfort and facilities, restaurant and overall service levels are superb! It is no more expensive and in a lot of cases better value than many hotels I use for business stays. What a great breakfast! Many thanks and look forward to returning.

We have stayed in shrewsbury on numerous occasions and after seeing the photos on the web, we were really excited to stay here, they had emailed us to warn us that there was road works taking place so it may be noisy and which direction to come from which was helpful, the car park is entered via a VERY small...

We had a nice meal with two friends here on a Saturday evening. The food was very nice although we felt that the menu was limited, with no specials available: a vegetarian menu with a wider variety of choices was available but only on request. The portion sizes were adequate and left us feeling comfortably full. The only thing that... More
