Friends recommended this restaurant so we went with them for my birthday. Lovely atmosphere and the owners make you feel very welcome in nice, comfortable warm surroundings. Starters looked very good and my friends eat so quickly and quietly that I knew I was missing out. Then the main course arrived and I took my first bite of my duck... More

It was pure luck I first come across the Golden Cross hotel. I saw the menu outside the door and instantly knew this was the place for me. Classic British food done exceedingly well. Good range of mains. A good number of gluten free meals as well. I've been back a few times with different friends or family and all... More

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.
