Our third or fourth time here and normally I would highly recommend this little gem but this visit was just okay I'm afraid. Room 10 , a nice room in itself but the bathroom is just too small, it would suit for one night but any longer it would be an issue. The other problem with this ensuite was there... More

Always very good for Sunday lunch, Waitress Ionelia is particularly helpful. Only tiny grumble is being regular it would be good to see menu varied occasionally although your waitress staff have helped her as well.

On a recent visit to the annual Shrewsbury Flower Show I had an exceptional meal at the Lion and Pheasant. After years of living in France I fearlessly ordered ‘steak tartare’ from the menu. The raw beef was finely chopped with other secret condiments. What I guessed to be marinated beetroot turned out to be kohlrabi (turnip-cabbage) and radish. Normally... More

Very pleased with our afternoon tea. It was a good selection and was very filling. The building is lovely with great decor. We went back again later in the evening for cocktails and found it's a lovely venue for casual drinks as much as it was for our afternoon tea.

We had a lovely evening celebrating our wedding anniversary. On arrival we were taken up to the Crystal Room. Selected our starters and main courses and wine and decided on an aperitif to begin. We were brought a butternut squash soup in a demi tasse with homemade bread compliments of the chef...delicious. Starters and mains were amazing full of flavour... More

Food was perfect, had the vegetarian option, it was great! So often an after thought but there was love in the gnocchi and delightfully simple flavours. Rene and Gwen were great hosts. We'll definitely be back.

In my exterience this Hotel has always been one of the more up to date places to go for a great dining experience. A recent visit has confirmed that opinion. The bar starts you off on a journey that is bright and dark at the same time, a place with corners for couples and space for groups. The dining areas... More
