“Warm and atmospheric bar / restaurant perfect for a cosy drink by the fire or for Sunday lunch. Right on the river this has long been a popular haunt for a meal or a drink. You will need to book for Sunday lunch (Dog friendly in bar area)”

“We have included this here mainly for its garden. Probably the nicest of any in Shrewsbury town centre. A great place to enjoy an alfresco drink. But also try The Olive Tree on Frankwell Island . A little further to walk but lovely. Also great tapas food at the Olive Tree.”

“It's a traditional real ale pub rather than a bar. Always busy and no music so everybody talks! Outdoor beer garden at the back as well.”
