Visiting our family in Shropshire decided to make a short break out of it and stay in a hotel for a change. Couldn't have chosen better! The Castle is a handsome early-Georgian building in a little square off the main street in Bishops Castle. Our room was huge, pleasantly furnished but not ultra modern, and looked out over the top of the town, and at under a £100 was good value. The bars are a bit retro, with bar billiards and wood panelling, but have genuine character. They had a wide choice of real ale on tap as befits a place like this, but the food was the highlight. Brought the in-laws for dinner and we all agreed it was one of the best meals twe'd had for ages.
Modern, imaginative and beautifully cooked. Ate in the restaurant, which was nice, but should probably have eaten in the bar like everyone else seemed to be doing as it had more atmosphere. Again very good value
All round a fantastic little hotel that doesn't rip you off.
