We've eaten at the bull a number of times and usually the food is OK, unfortunately the last couple of times it's got progressively worse. The menu hasn't changed in over a year and they seem to have forgotten how to cook it. Yesterday was the last time we will be going there as after 45 minutes my partner had... More

My wife and I had a night in the Four Poster suite on a Saturday evening. We checked in early in the day and arrived to stay around midnight- there's a separate access way to the rooms from the main street, so you can come and go as you please. The room was a good size with a tidy little... More

Decided to splash out on a four poster bed. Small room, adequate but tired décor. No window (although there was a window which looked out onto what looked like a vivarium but what also looked out onto the hallway......thankfully we drew the curtains or we would have been the entertainment!! Good nights sleep, nice shower, creaky bed! Great live music... More

Have just spent a week at The Bull Inn in Shrewsbury. This is a lovely little Inn located in the town centre. Lovely comfortable rooms which are really well soundproofed especially when there is live music in the bar. Never heard a sound. Plenty of powerpoints for all your mod cons and breakfast was huge. Well worth a stay and... More

Another great few days at the bull inn. We find everything first class. From the staff. Food. Rooms. To the cleanliness of the place. What a great place to see the new year in. Thanks everyone for making it so special. Tony and mary bedworth.

Been here before and enjoyed it that much, it seems offensive and rude not to call in for something to eat and drink. Highly recommend this pub when in Shrewsbury. No children and no drunken thugs. Within an easy 10 minute walk of the station, although it is up hill on the way here.
