We went as a party of four to celebrate my birthday, the decor was tired and part of the restaurant was set up for breakfast, most tables had a tablecloth apart from ours which apparently does not have a cloth however for us felt not...finished. There were no locals in only guests. The food was ok but rather safe and not stunning, and only one menu not the one advertised on the web site. I asked if my steak could be wrapped up but was advised it breached the food code, on checking on the `Monday I was advised no one at the Foods Standards had ever heard of this, perhaps it is a restaurant thing. For me I would not sadly returnMore

Mixture of styles making it look old and maybe quirky. Good menu with a range of prices. Helpful staff and food was both properly cooked and well presented.

Staying in the hotel for the weekend and thought we would try this out. Menu was OK without wowing but able to find good choices, Lamb shank, Steak and Fish & Chips came all of which was fresh hot tasty and thoroughly enjoyed. The service...was attentive and quick without being intrusive, the wine was delicious. A great choice and worth visiting if you in Shrewsbury.More

After some friends recommended the food at this hotel, my partner and I decided to have an evening meal here. We first had some drinks in the bar and the Italian barman is so polite and attentive, he had us in stitches with some of...his stories. The restaurant is quaint and tastefully decorated, music is a little dated but its fairly quiet so no big issue, now the food. The food is absolutely amazing, the desserts are to die for, could easily have eaten more than 1 of them however our whole experience was completely ruined by the young lady who served us who was without a doubt the rudest and most abrupt person I've ever had the displeasure to come into contact with. She was flustered and rushing around despite the restaurant being fairly empty and a simple question quickly turned into a small argument with her. I recommend teaching her some basic customer service skills before putting her into a restaurant environment.More

Ate here during our stay at the Prince Rupert hotel. Staff are friendly and attentive and the food excellent. I enjoy a good steak but rarely (pun intended) is it as good or cooked as I would wish - this was the exception. Menu is...varied and imaginative. Interesting medieval themed comfortable surroundings.More

Having heard some very good reports we were somewhat disappointed with our meal. The toast that accompanied my selection of Pate was either stale or of poor quality bread as wast he luncheon roll. The main course of Turkey, whilst well presented lacked taste in...that the roast potatoes were rock hard and had been around for some time. The Christmas pudding was presented with a best one spoonful of custard and additional being requested, did eventually arrive. In fairness some of the other dishes as selected were fully acceptable and tasteful.More

My son and party had an acceptable lunch at this hotel enjoying the atmosphere on their way to the airport home. They have not lived live in UK for some time, do not know the reputation of these private car park firms and so used...the hotel car park paying £3 into the machine. They have now been stung for a parking charge 0f £100 by ParkingEye as APNR is used and you are timed from the time of entry to the time of exit which meant that my son unwittingly overstayed by a few minutes as the walk to the parking machine was some distance. We contacted the hotel on his behalf who maintained that they had no influence on Parking Eye. This turns out to be false as they are the owners and the contract for parking is between the hotel and my son in law with Parking Eye acting as agent. We had hoped to appeal as my son and a passenger believe that there was no clear signs warning him but we need photos to prove this and we are too far away to go and visit. We asked the hotel if they could check this for us but they have not replied. We all feel very let down by a reputable hotel allowing its customers too be ripped off in this way.More
