A warm, inviting boutique hotel in Shrewsbury’s historic centre; potter about the medieval streets, relax in a sun-catching courtyard

Old meets new in this stunning transformation of a town centre inn with exposed beams, delicious log fire and a pale Scandinavian décor with rustic touches. Have a crack at Wood Shropshire Lad or Salopian Shropshire Gold while you peek at the menu, created by chef Paul Downes. Roast chestnut and thyme soup; crispy pork cheek terrine; roast hake, mussels, chickpeas and chorizo; British roast veal, soubise, sage and walnut pesto; this is food to linger over. The wine list is long and includes a dazzling array of dessert wines, port and different fizzes; the cocktails are works of art. When the sun shines, take to the terrace where canvas provides stylish shade, and artfully planted tubs add colour. Staff are young, friendly and efficient. Packed with character and atmosphere; decibels can be high.
