"Quaint Country Pub" 2 Oct 2017Reviewed by crippssp I visited this typical village pub for a lunchtime meal. The pub rooms are small and there was a cosy atmosphere. The lunchtime menu included several options for vegetarians so I didn't have to 'choose' pasta which I hate. The food was hot and well served by staff who were both helpful and friendly.I would definitely go again. I did not stay over so have no idea about the hotel accommodation.

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...

"Sunday Lunch" yesterdayReviewed by Doreen S Enjoyed Sunday lunch with friends at this very welcoming and extremely friendly pub. There was a good menu for lunch and it was all served quickly and hot. Requests were met without any difficulty and everything was served with a smile. We all enjoyed banter and jokes with the owner and we would have no hesitation in going back there if we are in the area again- would even like to give the hotel a try.

"Lovely old inn with modern accommodation" yesterdayReviewed by kenwA8064OE On arrival I received a warm welcome and was shown to a warm comfortable room on a cold night in the best tradition of inn keeping. The bedroom was well appointed and tastefully decorated with a modern bath and shower. The English breakfast was delicious served by efficient and friendly staff. Parking was easy and close to the room.
