We were staying next door at the prince rupert hotel ... On the 16 November we sat at our table which seated 4 as that was the only one available .. We had been sitting there drinking not eating for a couple of hours quite happily . Until one of the staff approached us to tell us not ask us that we had to give our table as they had people in who wanted to eat.. We were told to sit on a table by the bar where other people were already seated .. We weren't asked in a descent manner asking us if we minded giving our table up we were made to look idiots ... Other customers around us commented to us how bad that we were treated ... I would never ever go back there again .. !! Bad manners by that particular member of staff !!!

We called at the Bull Inn for lunch, after reading the menu, it sounded really nice. When we started to order from the menu, we were told, they had no Bacon or mushrooms for our meal. That's not a good start, when most of the lunch time meals had Bacon and mushrooms on the listing. We were told we had to order drinks from the downstairs bar, and could not put them on the bill. When eventually the meals arrived, after waiting for 25 mins, we were told, they had been 7 cheques before us, but we were not informed of this at the beginning. The Bull Burger was terrible. On the outside of the burger, it was completely black and all you could taste was burnt food, plus it was very dry indeed. When the guy who took our order asked us if everything was ok, we replied NO, the burger was inedible, he just walked away. We will not be going to the Bull Inn again.

Have eaten on many occasions at The Bull,but this time,I can honestly say that it was awful!!It began with the lack of wraps and sandwiches on the menu.No problem-decided to try the pint of prawns followed by the homemade burger,and a lager to begin.The young lady was very apologetic with regard the wraps and said that she would bring our drinks over.Fine.Having waited for quite some time,I enquired about our drinks,only to be snapped at and told to get to the bar to be served!I explained and the very arrogant dark haired barmaid proceeded to embarrass the young waitress about our drinks.The pint of prawns were a disaster!Served without a finger wash or ample serviettes.The burger was salty to say the least!All around us we could hear the apologies of the staff to other diners.Not a good lunchtime to eat at The Bull.m

Went into the Bull for lunch on a recent day visit to Shrewsbury and it was excellent. There were four of us and we all ordered different meals and they were all good, no one was disappointed. All washed down with real ale - excellent!

Found this whilst walking around Shrewsbury, not very well signposted so could be a well kept secret. It is tucked up a small side street, near St Alkmunds Church. Excellent food, reasonable prices.

Will definitely return.

Stayed at this lovely little hotel recently and it was very clean and well looked after. Decent location near to the town and a good selection of drinks . Breakfast included in the price which turned out to be very reasonable.
