We enjoyed a superb Sunday lunch at this unusual hotel. Very old property, characterful building with comfortable interior almost in a chic coffee shop style. Seriously sophisticated menu available, but chose the Sunday Roast which was delicious. Children happy with smaller portions of an Italian dish. Good service, relaxed atmosphere. Well recommended.

Beautiful inside and out, friendly staff, good selection of drinks and food. Fun hanging chairs in the garden! I would recommend it for good and bad weather as the restaurant has lovely soft furnishings!

We stopped here for one night on our way back to Ireland. We arrived about 5pm and we were welcomed by our male host/landlord. We were shown to room 11 on the first floor. One of the things you need to be aware of is that this is a very old building and I suspect a listed building. I think... More

Very picturesque pub with accommodation above. Obviously access is up steep stairs given the age of the building, which would restrict some visitors (thankfully not me). The attitude of the owners made me feel very much welcome & the commitment to good food made dining a pleasure. Parking of necessity was not easy, but that was only to be expected... More

Out side the signs say 'free house' and looks like another lovely pub in shrewsbury, however this is an eatery. We asked if there was a bar area and we were told to take a seat in the window. Wish we hadn't bothered. Drinks were expensive and awful, the place is tacky with fake diamonds on fake horns. Unless you... More

Situated in the heart of Shrewsbury. Stayed in the superking room which was fabulous. Really historic building with all the uneven floors that come with it, especially in this room. I asked if the room was haunted and was told some had seen/heard things, especially one gentleman who said during the night he was grabbed by the ankles and pulled... More
