After booking a table two weeks in advance for sunday lunch,we were disappointed on arrival to be told that the sunday roast had sold out. The person who told us was very apologetic but because of the time 2pm, it did not leave any opportunity to go else where. We were offered their standard menu which we accepted but this... More

I recommended to my friends my out of town that we have lunch here.. Very much regretted that! Previously I've had great food here, but on this occasion food came and I found a dark hair in my food. I complained & the girl took my plate back to kitchen & didn't say anything! Not even a apology just "I'll... More

We called at the Bull Inn for lunch, after reading the menu, it sounded really nice. When we started to order from the menu, we were told, they had no Bacon or mushrooms for our meal. That's not a good start, when most of the lunch time meals had Bacon and mushrooms on the listing. We were told we had... More

Went into the Bull for lunch on a recent day visit to Shrewsbury and it was excellent. There were four of us and we all ordered different meals and they were all good, no one was disappointed. All washed down with real ale - excellent!

Found this whilst walking around Shrewsbury, not very well signposted so could be a well kept secret. It is tucked up a small side street, near St Alkmunds Church. Excellent food, reasonable prices. Will definitely return.

Stayed at this lovely little hotel recently and it was very clean and well looked after. Decent location near to the town and a good selection of drinks . Breakfast included in the price which turned out to be very reasonable.
