6 of us took the 6 available rooms recently whilst visitng to watch the football and stayed for 2 nights. The staff couldnt have been more welcoming and accommodating. They were possibly the most helpful people we have come across on our football travels. The hotel itself is directly above the pub and served great food, with a very good...

we have just got back from a short break in Shropshire and Gloucester, on our 1st night we stayed at the bull, we found it was great value for money, only costing us £50 quid for one nights stay, with an excellent full English breakfast, our room was spotlessly clean, and comfortable, with a good size bathroom, and well stocked...

I stayed at the Bull Inn for a night whilst sightseeing in the area. My room was at the front of the hotel. It was basic but clean, as was the very small bathroom. Tea and coffee making facilities were supplied as well as toiletries in the bathroom. After a long day of sightseeing and a nice meal elsewhere I...

Only stayed the night with my girlfriend, value was great breakfast great for an extra £5. Room clean and comfortable bed squeaked a lot though and I mean loud. Otherwise very enjoyable would recommend and you can park on the shopping centre over night for only £8.

I did not expect much from a hotel/bnb above the pub. But the room we were in was very clean and loomed really nice. The housekeeper lady was very polite as well :) Obviously there was a lot of noise coming from the street in the Early mornings, but that's what one would expect.

Varied range of good pub food at a fair price and the key thing for me is that the food is consistently good quality and the service is always friendly. The atmosphere is always good and even eating alone you feel comfortable in any of the sections for eating. Never had a bad meal over many visits over many years....

Perhaps it's just me, but I didn't find The Bull particularly welcoming. None of the staff seemed to be able to muster a genuine smile, everybody looked fed up and in the end I was happy to leave. The room was very well looked-after, but I was woken up constantly by people shouting in the street, delivery drivers shouting and...

My friend and I visited The Bull in Shrewsbury for lunch yesterday. It was really good food, excellently cooked and served by friendly efficient staff. This restaurant is immaculately clean even the toilets and really spotless. They fully deserve the 5 star hygiene certificate on their window. What a great place.
