This place was far more than we expected for the very reasonable price. From the moment we arrived we were made to... More

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

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.

The welcome we received was first class and helpful , and our rooms were as described, very... More

Booked a one night stay via Expedia and managed to get a rate of £40. After booking, I read reviews on here and realised that there was a chance that I was likely to get a room without en suite facilities. Needless to say, my fears were realised when I entered the room. The room did have a sink and... More
