Friendly pub,helpful staff. I had a one Sunday night stay in January 2018.I arrived quite early so had Sunday lunch in the dining room.The food was excellent,generous portions and beautifully cooked local lamb. I walked off my lunch around some of the lovely border countryside and had a couple of really nice beers in the friendly bar in the evening.Unfortunately,I had an extremely early start to meet a friend on our way up to Scotland the next day so couldn't take advantage of the full breakfast.I was however provided with a generous continental breakfast in my room for the morning. A lovely,comfortable and beautifully decorated room and staff who couldn't have been more helpful. A cracking little pub and excellent service.

"Comfortable retreat" yesterdayReviewed by Gillian888 Really enjoyed our stay. Was very comfortable and friendly. When you have done a long drive nothing nicer than to go next door for dinner! Bar is cosy too with an open fire. There was a quiz on our first night too which was fun. Food was good and they do a smaller portions menu too, less is more for me! We stayed for two nights and would definitely like to go back.

Reviewed yesterday Surprised us, Fantastic value for money and food is great The room was really lovely with great extras like a torch, bluetooth radio. Downside was the wifi didn't seem to work but we didn't tell anyone and I'm sure they would have tried to help. Staff were really friendly and breakfast was generous and tasty. Had a great sleep and loved our room (was in an old converted pig barn!)

Fantastic Place to stay Review of The Boar's Head Hotel Reviewed 2 days ago Three of us stayed in the triple/family room for a weekend meet up. The room was large and airy and just what we needed - not too cosy! Breakfast is the best cooked one I have had and we all eat well, the pub is friendly and serves great cask beer making a welcome place after a long walk. Room Tip: Ask for a demo on how to use the remote control roof blinds - we were lucky and worked it out!

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.
