My colleague and I visited The Bull Inn whilst we had two hours to spare before our train (ten minute walk from station) and we enjoyed the Ham, 2 Egg and Chips (£8.00).We arrived at 1.30 and was lucky to find a table by the bar as it was very busy (appeared to be all locals) but service was excellent...

My husband stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed his stay. The Inn is welcoming, friendly and comfortable and he loved Shrewsbury and would recommend it for great authentic pubs and surroundings. But what makes the Bull Inn stand out is that in today's world when customer service often seems to go out of the window they went the extra...

We've been staying at the Bull for the last 10 years so I think that says it all really! Renata and her team do a great job, always really friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfy and the full English breakfast is delicious. The Bull usually has very good local bands playing on Friday and Saturday, which is...

Right in the middle of the town so within easy reach of everything- individual shops with character, shopping centres, all types of pubs cafes and restaurants, the Abbey, castle, river with boat trips or just a pleasant walk. Live bands on Friday and Saturday nights provided entertainment and atmosphere but finished at 11pm. The food is fabulous from the varied...

Where do I begin. It was busy but a table was found and we were promptly seated with the menus. Coffee came and we ordered. I had the steak and ale pie and my husband had the gammon. We were hungry, very hungry but when the lunches arrived we were astounded by the amount served and it was excellent. The...

This place is right in the heart of Shrewsbury so is fine for getting about sampling the real ales. Room was very good with a large king size bed for one and very comfortable, especially for the price. Really friendly staff. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't' for the noise at night and in the mornings...

Pet friendly pub serving lovely food. Reasonably priced and centrally placed. I had a delicious homemade Thai curry and my husband had the biggest Ploughmans he had ever seen comprising of Shropshire Blue Cheese, pork pie, baked ham, salad, pickles, boiled egg and ciabatta roll! Perfect place for lunch and a pint!

Popped in on a Saturday lunchtime and was lucky to get a table as it was busy. Had a panini which came with huge chips! Lovely food, quick service, no complaints. Great in the evening too for drinks, occasionally they have live music too!

Stayed here midweek - had a lovely, ensuite room, charming and comfortable. Staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble and they made our stay a real pleasure. A home-cooked, substantial breakfast, with lots of choice, sealed the deal.
