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

Stayed here for a weekend for birthday celebrations. Whole place has oodles of character and very quirky. Stayed in room five which was spacious and with large bathroom. Ate in the restaurant on Friday evening, lovely atmosphere, food delicious. All staff very helpful and friendly. Well situated for exploring the town.

Alas we did not get to sample lunch at this little pub/inn/rooms over bar. We walked into a group of people at the bar. When we were finally noticed by the matron in black, to our amusement we were greeted with a rather supercilious Caaan I Help you? As if Mrs Bucket just found a stranger lurking in the hallway...
