This is certainly a great location and a pub with a great atmosphere. But the rooms were rather basic and noisy due to the pub below. Service was very friendly. Value was excellent. Clean and Tidy and Breakfast very nice

The ham tasted off like vinegar but because they were adament it came fresh daily from a local butcher I was dismissed and nothing was done. They didnt even have intention on checking it for other customers. Not recommended. Who is to say the local butcher hadnt gave them some older or poorly stored meat

The shower cubicle is a bit claustrophobic but good. the usual stuff provided. We ate twice there, very reasonable and tasty. The breakfast is lovely, 2 minor things - no... More

We booked a table for a meal on Saturday evening at 7pm. We were shown to our table and a drinks order was taken. The drinks arrived and then we were told that 2 of the items that I would have chosen were not available as they had "run out". Unfortunately there was nothing else on the menu that I... More

We decided on a mini break in Shrewsbury & my Fiance came upon this place via the internet. We wanted a central location, a pleasant room & just somewhere to lay our heads after a day of shopping. This place was far more than we expected for the very reasonable price. From the moment we arrived we were made to... More

Found hotel quite by chance for brief overnight stay in this beautiful and historic town. Ideally situated in central location. Pleasant, clean (en-suite) room. No parking facilities - nearest is NCP at £7.20 for 24 hours. Access to rooms is up several flights of (narrow) stairs across pub courtyard. However, reasonable value at £65 inc. terrific (full) breakfast for both... More

We had a lovely breakfast which was included in the price of the room and there was a band playing in the pub part the night before which was... More

Called in for a late lunch during a brief trip to Shrewsbury. We were given a table for two straight away, even though they were busy. Ordered drinks, which were brought to the table and the food order was taken promptly. Ordered meals from the 'two for £10' menu. After a short wait the meals arrived; good portions which were...

I stayed here for two nights whilst house-hunting in Shrewsbury and heartily recommend it. Although an inexpensive B&B, I was pleased with the friendly and efficent customer service. I stayed in an ensuite and due to a party taking place the first evenng, they put me in a high up room - I didn't hear a thing and slept soundly.... More

Thank you for an excellent lunch on Monday for Shrewsbury SLOG members. Friendly and efficient service ... Our group and their guide dogs always feel very welcome at the Old Post Office where nothing is too much trouble.
