On a day trip to this historic town we stumbled across this little pub. The meals we chose were 2 for £10 and certainly wasn't disappointed. Very well cooked and tasty. Nice friendly welcome to, Would certainly come back if I made a return visit to the town.

The Old Post Office is centrally located and reasonably easy to find. Our room was above the designated smoking area in the courtyard below and this made the air stale and unpleasant in the room. The bedding didn't seem very fresh and the shower didn't work (the lady serving breakfast sorted this for us as it was a problem with... More

Superb location for all the shops and pubs. The rooms are a little dated and the kettle plug did not reach the socket, therefore had to put kettle on floor. The restaurant is very popular and good value for money, we ate both nights in the restaurant. All staff were very friendly and helpful. We booked through Trivago @ £143.00... More

This is a great place to stay in the town centre, just off the main street and not at all badly priced. Arrived on Sunday just for the one night (unfortunatley too late to eat there on a Sunday as they stop serving at 4.00pm... but plenty of other places are available nearby). Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable... More

Ate out with large family troup on a tuesday evening. Roast of the day was beef and it was superb. Really tasty with homemade Yorkshires and fresh vegetables. Good sized portions and good prices. Staff were very friendly. We were all happy and would go again.

Recently visited the Old Post Office for lunch. We found this pub by accident a couple of years ago and on our visits to Shrewsbury always pay a visit. Think it has a lovely atmosphere and the food is very well priced - this time we had the steak and ale pie - two meals for £10.00. Portion size good... More
