I did not expect much from a hotel/bnb above the pub. But the room we were in was very clean and loomed really nice. The housekeeper lady was very polite as well :) Obviously there was a lot of noise coming from the street in the Early mornings, but that's what one would expect.

Varied range of good pub food at a fair price and the key thing for me is that the food is consistently good quality and the service is always friendly. The atmosphere is always good and even eating alone you feel comfortable in any of the sections for eating. Never had a bad meal over many visits over many years....

Perhaps it's just me, but I didn't find The Bull particularly welcoming. None of the staff seemed to be able to muster a genuine smile, everybody looked fed up and in the end I was happy to leave. The room was very well looked-after, but I was woken up constantly by people shouting in the street, delivery drivers shouting and...

My friend and I visited The Bull in Shrewsbury for lunch yesterday. It was really good food, excellently cooked and served by friendly efficient staff. This restaurant is immaculately clean even the toilets and really spotless. They fully deserve the 5 star hygiene certificate on their window. What a great place.

Called in with a friend on Friday afternoon. Had a bottle of presseco which the lady behind the bar then brought over an ice bucket for us. Ordered some small plates as a snack, all of which were very good and good quality too.

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...
