The pub is lovely with a nice courtyard to drink outside. The room was nicely decorated and clean with a big TV and fairly comfy mattress. The breakfast was lovely. Only downsides were loads of stairs to the room, no parking at the hotel, flat pillows and the tiniest shower I have ever seen. Overall good value for money &... More

I thought the hotel was a little expensive based on the fact that there was no parking at all so I spent an extra 7.50 per day on that. The breakfast was just ok, lovely staff, very friendly. It's a bit dated....but ok.

I use this pub at least twice a month and I do like the atmosphere and staff, it's only down fall is it is a little bit expensive so that puts us off staying for more than one drink, They have great bands

The accommodation was excellent, with a good breakfast, clean rooms, TV and brewing facilities with biscuits etc. The only draw back was the fact that you have to park quite a distance away, on a NCP car park. I heard later that you could park on the street nearby if you wanted to wait for a space. Other than that,... More

We booked several rooms on behalf of important clients that were visiting us, we couldn't of asked for more, the service and helpfulness was second to none and we had nothing but complimentary reports back from our customers. This will be our only choice from now on and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, again to all the staff... More

Shrewsbury is a really nice town, well worth a visit. We stayed at the Old Post Office, and it was a really good decision. The rooms are away from the bar area so dont get too noisy. The room was clean, warm and comfortable. Bathroom was spotless too. Friendly, helpful staff at reception and in the restaurant. Nice evening meal,... More

We stayed here for my 50th birthday. It's in a great central location and is amazing value for money. Great breakfast. We didn't eat dinner but food looked great. Nice to see a pub north of Bristol selling Thatchers cider for a Somerset lad.
