The restaurant has a very warm cosy feel to it and I love the layout and décor, very quirky!! We pre booked and pre ordered our food which was great for both them and us. We had 1 person fail to turn... More

Rubbish !!!! Ordered Shin of Beef with corn . First of all there was no beef in the dish , not acceptable. A complete utter rip off. The waitress was very false and I didn't feel comfortable at all. I felt like she was an actress not sincere what so ever.

We stayed here over night a couple of weeks ago and the place is really old and quaint, The staff are very friendly and the food was fantastic even if a little expensive. The only down side to the bedrooms rooms was the size, the double bed has to be pushed up against the wall which makes it a little... More

Thoroughly recommend this 600 year old hotel tucked away in a lovely and quiet part of Shrewsbury. The suite was delightful quite spacious with great 4 poster and overlooking a quaint church. Top Shropshire cooked breakfast and the service was warm and friendly. We hope to stay again. If you are looking for a treat stay in Shrewsbury this is the place.

Went with my daughter to the Golden Cross for lunch today. Excellent food and service. The young lady who served us was professional and very friendly. Her name is Iona and she made our experience very special. A great meal and a great experience. Thank you Iona for your care, wonderful bubbly personality and making our meal special.

Didn't stay here but we were in Shrewsbury for the day and stopped by for lunch. Food was amazing. There are light bites and more substantial dishes to choose from. Decor inside was unexpected - very vintage. Hosts very welcoming. Would definitely return. And wouldn't mind a night in one of the rooms.

We arrived late in the day into town to look for accommodation which was in short supply due to a couple of major conferences being in progress. We got the last available room which was a little bigger than a matchbox with just enough room to squeeze past each other. We felt like we were back in the 1400"s when... More
