I was in room number 1, and was told on arrival that the room didn't have a window, and that also there would be live music in the evening. At first, I didn't think this would be a problem, but the lack of natural light was disorientating and unpleasant. Then, around 8pm, the live music started up downstairs. I couldn't... More

So we found our way into The Bull on a very wet Saturday. The place was full (probably because it was bucketing down outside) and there were no tables available for lunch. We ordered a couple of drinks and asked to be notified when a table became available. 40 minutes later we spotted a table ( no sign of staff... More

It was hilarious then at 06:00 a pipe seemed to burst outside and that was really loud, then finally at 6:38 the... More

A nice old world pub on Butchers Row in Shrewsbury . Sat outside in this old street in the sun enjoying a pint .A nice pub to watch the world go by. A good selection of local beers and a Czech Republic beer. They also serve food.

After a lot of walking, looking for somewhere to eat that wasn't Italian, we came across The Bull. From the outside it looked like an ordinary pub with quite a nice menu. It was a nice surprise going inside the find the pub extended a long way back and was full of diners. I had the halloumi burger, my husband... More

Visited some time ago for a meal and noticed it had limited accommodation. Took a slow journey to Manchester and stopped over for one night. Recently refurbished room, excellent meal in the bar and a first class breakfast in the morning. Booked through trip advisor and had an absolute bargain. Much better value than the heavily advertised chains.

The property is a bit of a walk from the station, but that is not an issue as you walk past the main street shops and restaurants of this beautiful old town. The Inn is very well located close to shops and restaurants on a cobbled street in this medieval town. They have a busy good vibe pub downstairs. I... More
