They moved the furniture around to fit 8 of us in. We had a tab and table service for drinks which is unusual in a pub. The food was first class, surprisingly good. We didn't really need the loud live music later in the evening but it was far enough away to not bother us too much, and there was... More

We had visited the Bull Inn a few weeks earlier for a drink and the food looked good so we decided to go again but this time for the food. My husband had fish and chips priced £10 and I had the lasagne priced at £8 and an extra portion of chips priced £3. My lasagne arrived with half a... More

Staff friendly and made us very welcome. Well positioned in the town along a lovely cobbled street. Will most certainly stay here again when next in Shrewsbury. Excellent value for... More

We've visited Shrewsbury before and loved the town, so as a last minute decision I decided to book a one night stay at the bull Inn for my fiance birthday. We struggled with where to park as the bull Inn is positioned in the most amazing cobbled Street, surrounded by historic buildings. Car parking is nearby at ncp £7 for... More

You will need to park in the main NCP car park and walk five minutes up the Inn. It’s found in Butchers Row which is an oldie worldly cobbled street with outside dinning and drinking. The bar of the Bull appears to be open most of the day so getting booked in was very quick and straight forward. There is... More

Seemed to be very popular with the locals, always a good sign. Only stayed for drinks, which were served promptly by friendly staff. Like most bars in Shrewsbury it is centrally located and not too far from other bars
