“Really lovely pub”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We love Shrewsbury and whenever we go there for a shopping day we always eat here. Its lovely and clean and really comfortable. The staff are always nice and the food is great. We always have the two for a tenner and it's always well worth it. Their chips are really yunmy. The building itself is lovely and there is a nice little courtyard for those nice sunny days. Looking forward to my next visit already.

Stayed at the Old Post Office for 3 nights in a double en-suite, was very disappointed to find our room only had a bath NO SHOWER, especially with the very hot weather we have had recently!!! The website doesn't make this clear so if you want a shower avoid room 6! Apart from that small issue everthing else was good, the bed was probably one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in away from home. Be aware that this is a busy pub which was quite noisy over the weekend, not a problem for us but could be an issue for some.
The location was great although Shrewsbury isn't that big so I guess anywhere would do. Had 1 meal at the pub and although it was good I think you get what you pay for.
Would definately stay here again though, good value for money

Have eaten here before and always had a good meal so Popped in for a Saturday lunch and well worth the visit! Fast service, great prices, courteous staff, lovely food. Simply couldn't fault any aspect of the meal and will return as soon as possible.

Stayed here for a long weekend and was totally amazed by the history of the pub, and indeed Shrewsbury. The Old Post Office offers Central clean and affordable accommodation which suited my budget. Will be definitely staying again.

2 meals for a tenner and excellent food it was too.My wife and I both chose differing choices which were served within minutes of placing our orders.Choice of 4 bitters and 3 lagers all very good and JAKE was amazing ,taking orders,serving food,showing guests to their rooms,serving drinks and cleaning tables.
Value was top notch.Needs a bit of sprucing up and the awful music played far too loudly but otherwise a good experience and young JAKE a man I'd employ without hesitation coping single handedly with the whole show.

Have eaten at the old post office several times, the food is consistently good and the steak is amazing. Would recommend eating here to anyone. The staff are always helpful, happy and friendly. My husband loves the beers that they have on offer and the atmosphere is relaxed

Meals two for ten pounds very good value and tasty food. Nice feel to the place. Clean and tidy. Friendly staff. Good selection of beers too and hardly any time to wait. We would recommend a visit. In the centre of the town of Shrewsbury.
