Really happy that we decided to visit the Coach and Horses last week for an evening meal, we arrived early evening and were given a choice of seating in the restaurant - this place is like a rabbit warren and a lot bigger than you initially think it is going to be! All the staff were friendly, the food was... More

Visited recently for the Sunday lunch and I would say it was fairly average for a carvery. I can't really criticise the food but I can't really praise it either. Just indifferent. Service was fine, no issues. The rear restaurant area is quite dark, I guess this is part of the atmosphere and the one of the things about having... More

This is a great traditional pub with a good selection of well kept real ales situated just off the main shopping area. It has the added bonus of a large dining area to the back of the pub but still in keeping with the character of the building. The food is excellent- homemade chilli and fish and chips are highly...

The Coach & Horses in Shrewsbury manages to marry excellent food with a pub vibe that makes u feel at home. Stella black on draught is always a bonus but this along with well respected local ales is a bonus. Walk in, get yourself a pint and relax.

Great food (especially the Sunday roasts), friendly atmosphere with chatty regulars and members of staff. Highly recommended.

This beautiful town pub provides everything from a great meeting place for a drink, intimate meal to a Christmas party. All of which I have done on many occasion. The food varies from a unique and very well put together a la carte menu, to fantastic specials at great prices. My favourite - FISH NIGHT! Really shows up chains like... More

Being with a dog in Shrewsbury we found there was a limited number of places we could eat but The Coach and Horses welcomed us, and our fluffy friend soon was snoozing on the cool bar floor whilst we tucked into a great dinner. I had the beer battered haddock which was fantastic, and the fresh salad for this and... More

After seeing lots of pictures on twitter and facebook I booked a table for 2 for the Fish Night. The meal was amazing, I had the starter of chilli squid, and my friend had scallops. Both were cooked perfectly, for mains I had Cornish plaice and my friend had cod. Again the fish was perfectly, it was nice to also... More
