    The food was great but the service given by the general manager was appalling, I believe his name was Mark, anyway we tried to make an order and all he did was ignore us and we had to wait for a waiter from the otherside of the resturant. Will only ever go there if the manager is no where to be seen.

    Unique Quality: The food and house staff

Wish I knew... I just got the name from a website. We drove past Shrewsbury a week ago but didn't stop at all. A good place to check these things is at www.chowhound.com (UK/Ireland section). People there are very helpful. I've been using their London advice for a few years, and they are spot on.

Zuriga
thanks for your info on chow hound sounds great - willcheck it out

We stayed at morgans at the exchange and room was small but really clean and well kitted out. staff really really helpful friendly and responsive. If you want an early night at the weekend and wont be out late clubbing or something its best to ask for an upstairs room as there is no sound proofing allowed on the beautiful old windows and so noise travels in as drunken debris hits the streets.
Food was not bad - reasonable but not great e.g white cabbage in a Greek Salad is a bit unusual!!

I'm glad you enjoyed the trip. I'm just back from visiting my kids in the States. I didn't realize how much I miss ranch dressing and good hamburgers. :-)

Travel Tips for Shrewsbury

A Church with a Face

by christine.j

This church is standing in front of the Abbey. I think it looks like it has a face, eyes, eyebrows, a rather long nose and a round mouth saying :"Ohh". It's probably a trick of the light, but quite funny.

St. Mary's church.

by hundwalder

St. Mary's church is located in the very center of the city near market square. Construction on this magnificent looking church commenced about 900 years ago. Unlike the other ancient churches of Shrewsbury, most of the original St. Mary's church is still intact.

The very steep pyramidal shaped brick belfry roof transforms to an octagonal shape about midway up. The roof design exhibits an interesting diversion in medieval Anglo-Saxon architecture. The steep spire, which symbolically points towards heaven, is believed to be the third highest in England. Note the stacked sets of Gothic dormers set in the belfry roof. They definately give the belfry an interesting appearance. The upper dormers are so small that I nearly expected a cuckoo bird to spring out of one of them. There is a clock on each wall of the belfry. Apparently it was important for the townsfolk of medieval Shrewsbury to know what time of day it was.

St. Mary's church took hundreds of years to complete. The dazzling stained glasss windows are the latest edition to this fascinating ancient church. The church interior contains some excellent art works. Admission to the church is free, but as always donations are appreciated.

Shrewsbury Castle gardens

by hundwalder

The stunning sandstone castle shown in photo #1 dominates the section of old town Shrewsbury between the train station and city square. Construction of the great fortress began in about AD 1074, when England was being ruled by William the Conqueror. Much of the castle was destroyed early in the 14th. Century, under the tyrannical and maniacal reign of king Edward I. The castle was rebuilt much to its present appearance soon thereafter. The castle currently houses the Shropshire County Regimental Museum, which is one of the best military museums in the region. Click on the Shrewsbury guide website link on my other tips for current museum hours of operation, admission charges, and other information.

As impressive as the interior of the castle is, its exterior and masterfully landscaped gardens are much more impressive in my opinion. The entire area around the castle, city ramparts, and the adjacent rock quarry, is a beautiful and peaceful public park. Photo #2 shows a small fraction of the flower and botanical gardens. The photos were taken in mid April, very early in the growing season. Shrewsbury's annual flower and ornamental plant show, which is held every August, is considered to be one of the best such shows in the United Kingdom. The show is held in the vicinity of the quarry and castle. The people of this part of England are indeed masters of designing, building, and maintaining ornamental plant desplays.

The Market Square

by uglyscot

In the market square is a Market Hall where buying and selling took place,
At the beginning of the square is a statue to Clive , of India fame.

The Old Market Hall is made from stone from the North of Shropshire. It had two storeys: the large upper room was originally used by the Shrewsbury drapers or dealers in cloth to sell Welsh wool . The post holes where fleeces were hung can still be seen today.
The lower floor was used by farmers to sell their corn. The Old Market Hall was erected in less than four months. It bears the Royal Coat of Arms of Queen Elizabeth I, with the date of 1596, and the supporters are the English Lion and the Welsh dragon. On the North side of the Old Market Hall there is a statue of the Duke of York. It replaces a previous Market House that was built on the same site in the 1260s.

Above the main arch there is a statue of a man in armour; he is thought to have been the Duke of York. This sculpture was originally located on the Welsh Bridge and it was moved to its current location on the orders of the town mayor in 1771. [from Wikipedia]

Shrewsbury Abbey from Laura's Tower

by MarvintheMartian

Shrewsbury Abbey was founded in 1083 by the Norman Roger de Montgomery and started life as a small wooden chapel. It was the centre of Norman and Medieval power in the region.

The monks who formed the community here followed the rule of St. Benedict for 457 years. The church was the centre of a daily round of prayer, study and manual work.
Part of the Abbey was used by local people as their parish Church and consequently it has survived Henry VIII and the dissolution of the monastery in 1540, Oliver Cromwell, Thomas Telford, Two World Wars and numerous floods and is still a parish church to this day.

However, during the dissolution of the monasteries the abbey lost its domestic buildings and much of the church. After the dissolution a shortened nave was left to serve as the parish church.

In 1283 a parliament met in the Chapter House, the first national assembly in which the commons were involved.

In recent years Shrewsbury Abbey has become famous as the home of the fictional monk Brother Cadfael, attracted thousands of visitors from all over the world.
