Pub food friendly staffaccommodation size,cleanliness & comfort. The village . If you've never been I definitely recommend the whole experience.

Yes Comments about this property A delightful oasis of calm, comfort and excellent food and service Tips for other travellers the walks in and around Bishops Castle are tremendous in the Shropshire Hills and if nothing else is achieved, the views are phenomenal as is the fresh air. Do visit the Museum on Crutches - what a delightful place and such charming volunteers that give all the history of this unique building, hidden among the little back streets of the Town. More the pity that only a small section of the wall of the Bishop's castle still survives as an open space/garden.

Shropshire Treat” Reviewed yesterday NEW Excellent pub with good quality modern accommodation. Smart restaurant area where they serve good food coupled with a decent wine list at reasonable prices. It still maintains a traditional pub atmosphere in the bar and serves a selection well kept real ales. All the members of staff we met were polite, friendly and helpful. Would recommend the Boars Head if you are planning to visit the area. Bishops Castle is an attractive somewhat sleepy town with a few other good pubs including the Three Tuns, the oldest licensed brewery in the UK. The town sits right on the English/Welsh border in beautiful scenery on both sides of the border. Plenty of places to visit including Ludlow, Clun, Powys Castle near Welshpool and the Kerry Vale Vineyard near Bishops Castle. This is Welsh Marches territory and while many other places claim (quite rightly) to have stunning scenery there's not much to beat this area, this is up there with the best. Luckily for us it's not that far away. Nevertheless well worth visiting even if you live further afield. Some areas in the UK (the usual suspects so to speak) claim very loudly how wonderful they are. This is an area largely undiscovered by many people outside of the larger West Midland area and Mid Wales. So if you do live further afield and you are looking for somewhere less crowded that avoids shouting about itself to all and sundry, this could be the place for you. Room Tip: All rooms seem to be very similar, I would guess there is no real advantage other than some are bigg...

"Great Friendly Local Pub" yesterdayReviewed by westmallingman Very warm welcome, great food, accommodation was in an old barn with own entrance which has been sympathetically restored to an excellent standard with attention to detail. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff and would definately use again.

Excellent stay as always. Like the way they are always trying to improve the rooms and service with additional features like DAB Bluetooth speakers and internet TV's. Look forward to returning again very soon. Tips for other travellers Walk the Long Mynd. Visit Clun and walk to the castle. And eat at The Boars Head as it's better than the rest.
