If you are looking for a hotel, this isn't it.. this is a pub with rooms and for what it is it does it very well!

If you're looking for somewhere very near to the centre of Shrewsbury and close to amenities, shopping etc, you can't go wrong with here. I had a very pleasant sleep as the bed was comfy. Breakfast (which was included) was very nice. I did have a problem with my hot tap not working and the shower door wasn't ideal as...

Just turned up straight off the street last night, looking for some food. Did not need to book, welcomed in by warm and friendly staff. Two courses for two people, just over twenty quid. Great value for money! Would visit again good quality pub grub!
