Excellent central location 7 mins walk from the train station. Great ensuite room, with a really lovely breakfast. Please remember this is a busy town centre pub which had a live band on when I stayed. So if noise is a problem for you perhaps the Bull isn't for you. I myself was not bothered by it and had a...

A last minute trip to Shrewsbury and needed a centrally located hotel, this was ideal. The room was ideal for what we needed a nice comfortable bed, ensuite, tea and coffee makings, well furnished, it was just like staying at an old aunties house, very welcoming and comfortable. The only downside (NOTHING TO DO WITH THE HOTEL) we had was...

Stayed recently and will definitely be back. All the staff are friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble. Very clean and comfortable bedrooms. Food very good. Brilliant location right in the centre. The only negative was the external noise which is beyond the control of the inn, but wouldn't put me off returning again.

Visited with my Son and Dad prior to watching football, best breakfast I have ever had and the atmosphere suited all, would highly recommend. Quality of food was excellent at a reasonable price, will revisit if back in the town.

Wonderful town which has many places to choose from to eat and drink.This place is in Butcher's Row and didn't disappoint.Not the quickest service but good value food which was served swiftly once we'd managed to order. Good selection of Ales and good value food.Sadly they played music half way through our otherwise excellent visit(Why??) which none of us Old...

My colleague and I visited The Bull Inn whilst we had two hours to spare before our train (ten minute walk from station) and we enjoyed the Ham, 2 Egg and Chips (£8.00).We arrived at 1.30 and was lucky to find a table by the bar as it was very busy (appeared to be all locals) but service was excellent...
