We were first time visitors to the town and so glad we chose the Poppy House to stay in. Beautiful old building, full of character - complete with wooden beams and sloping floors! A good night's sleep in a really comfortable bed, and a delicious freshly cooked breakfast. Our hosts, Clive and Julie, were really friendly. Bishops Castle is a... More

.....so much so we enjoyed two consecutive family breakfasts here. Really friendly attentive staff and wonderful full English and vegetarian breakfasts that were just what we needed after a morning walk down from Foxholes campsite. Perfectly cooked boiled eggs served with thick buttered soldiers for the children too. Thank you Poppy House. Definitely worth a visit.

When ever my friend and myself are staying at our caravan near Bishops Castle we always end up at Poppy House for breakfast as it just amazing! Good value for money and a good selection (I always have the vegetarian breakfast as it is SO tasty!) For £6.95 you can have a full English breakfast, pot of tea or coffee... More

We didn't stay here so can't comment on the rooms - we called in to eat in the restaurant. We weren't looking for a massive meal so just went for the mains. The grilled pepper halves stuffed with roast vegetables and topped with cheese, and the Mediterranean pasta bake topped with cheese and pine nuts (these are optional so the... More

Thank you so much for your positive review of our food. We were feeling upset from a negative review (shown in the Tripadvisor restaurant section) from the day before. Ironically this review was scathing of the very dish (Pepper Halves with Med Veg) you praised so highly. We are a family concern and we put a lot of effort into... More

We stayed in the Poppy House for just one night whilst walking on the Shropshire Way. It is well situated near the Main Street in Bishop's Castle, so is close to all amenities. The accommodation is very good and even Room 2, which was described as 'smaller than the others' was of a reasonable size with a good en suite.... More

We stayed at the Poppyhouse with eight other members of our family. The children with us were aged between between 8 and 4. We had the most relaxed family break we could have hoped for. We were all made so welcome. Bishops Castle seemed to have something for everybody. The men (being big beer real ale drinkers) had a selection... More

Booked in at the start of the month for a Saturday night at the Poppy House in Bishops Castle. The town had a great deal of different unexpected shops, many independent and unique. The room was in keeping with the character of the building. Rooms were really clean, looked like a lot of effort had gone into the appearance of... More

Stayed over New Year - minimum 2 nights but at this price, why not? Comfortable room and excellent breakfast. Booking efficient and all contact with staff was friendly and efficient. Bishops Castle is great for beer!

The literature says that they are a small family business and they aim to offer a warm welcome to their customers, which is exactly what they did. It's a nice freindly well run place and I was made to feel that I was "one of the family". A lovely old building in the centre of the village and the room... More
