Voted one of England's 'best boutique hotels under £100', the re-opening of the lion + pheasant's stunning transformation has brought an exciting new dimension to the business and social life of Shrewsbury's historic town centre.

Gaining an ever-increasing reputation since its remodelling by the award-winning designer and architect team of Rachael Chidlow and Paul Keogh, the Lion + pheasant has rapidly become the town's 'in-place'.

The quality of its accommodation, the warmness of its welcome, the friendly efficiency of its service and the excellence of its food and drink have set the Lion + Pheasant apart, not least for its unique combination of historic charm with contemporary design

Located on Wyle Cop - one of Shrewsbury's most historic streets - and within 50 yards of the river Severn's English Bridge, the 22 bedroom independant family-owned lion + pheasant is under the direction of Jim Littler, one of Shropshire's best known, and most highly regarded, young managers.

Setting new standards of hospitality in the town, the hotel's enthusiastic staff, cater for a local clientele and visitors alike - in the hotel's bars, restaurant and banqueting facilities - whether for business, pleasure or gatherings of every kind - weddings, christenings, conferences and away-days.
