A boutique townhouse hotel, the lion + pheasant is perfect for a long weekend in the country. It comes with all the trimmings, from a delicious Sunday roast in front of a roaring fire to chic cocktails before a night out.
While the hotel’s design channels cool Scandinavia and contemporary colours, you’ll receive only the warmest of welcomes on check in here. Nothing is too much trouble for the very friendly staff.
The lion + pheasant is in the middle Shrewsbury, said to be one of the prettiest market towns in Shropshire. Sat on the river Severn, the boutique hotel is a short stroll to the river, or from independent boutiques and delis that reside in the quaint medieval streets.
22 rooms make up this charmingly chic townhouse. While each is individually styled, you can be guaranteed a luxurious wrought iron or oak bed and plenty of medieval beams.
The hotel is home to Shrewsbury’s finest fine dining restaurant (awarded two AA rosettes in 2014). Inspired by French cuisine, the menus are seasonal and showcase local produce while the kitchen team has Michelin star experience and turn out dishes as pretty as a picture.
The hotel’s bar is the place for an artisanal gin and tonic or a cocktail. It’s an easy spot to unwind after a day’s walking or shopping.
The 11th century Shrewsbury Abbey is just down the road, it’s one of 660 listed buildings in this ancient town that hasn’t changed much in 500 years. A short drive will see you cross the Welsh border.
