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.

Same experience as previous person commented. My fiance and I asked for a table for 2. Restaurant was not even half full waitress asked bloke behind the bar who gave a no way signal. Had a dampener on the rest of our night as he made me feel like crap! We both had something to celebrate and wanted a good... More

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

My husband and I stay one night here after attending a wedding. Gareth, the owner, is a really lovely welcoming host. Can't fault the hangover cure breakfast! Throughly recommend the this B&B just wished we'd stayed for 2 nights!

We stayed for 2 nights in Room 1 (The Suite). Very spacious and comfortable accomodation over 2 floors. The first floor area (above the restaurant) comprises a bedroom (4-poster bed, quite high up off the ground) and a sitting area with a sofa and an amusingly small TV. A reasonably steep staircase takes you up to the second floor where... More

Just returned from a 1 night stay in Room 5 of this beautiful place. Decor is absolutely stunning, room was lovely, with a big comfy bed and the breakfast was gorgeous. Its obvious that a lot of time and effort has been put into making the Golden Cross a luxurious and interesting place to stay.

We stayed 2 nights in the Golden Cross in a standard Double [£75pn incl Breakfast]. The room, whilst being small [as expected] was very well appointed. A significant amount has been lavished on maintaining and improving a 14th century property. Access to the bedrooms was via a separate access for which you have a key, another plus. Although on the... More

The private dining room was perfect for some hospitality we were hosting, everybody had a really lovely time. I stayed in the twin room which was nice, the building is very old so expect... More

Our favourite Shrewsbury restaurant encouraged us to stay in a room for the night. What an experience! Staying in the double room for £75 was akin to sleeping in a coffin with all the gothic ambience one associates with Edgar Allan Poe. This may not sound enjoyable, but it is highly recommended as an experience not to be missed. The... More

Fantastic characterful quirky historical and that's just the owner. Great great place to stay. Wonderful rooms, the restaurant has a nice buzz and the food was good value, fresh, different and well thought out menu. This is the second time we have stayed and it won't be the last. Don't recognise some of the previous comments, for me this was... More
