“A cosy cocktail bar in the heart of Shrewsbury, inspired by the 1920’s prohibition era, where speakeasies flourished underground, evading the laws forbidding the sale of alcohol under the pretence of a tiger show - www.theblindtigerbar.co.uk/”

“Gorgeous setting on a bend in the River Severn in Shrewsbury opposite the Quarry (Shrewsbury's lovely big park). Lots of seating outside for all types of customers, cocktails for the younger crowd and quiet places for the older people wanted a good quality meal out in a fun place. Can get busy in the summer. Like all good restaurants in Shrewsbury in the evenings, best to book a table in advance.”

“Take one of the oldest, most historic half-timbered buildings in Shrewsbury. Give it a beautiful zinc bar bathed in ever changing colours and add a conservatory with elegant chandeliers, framed by stunning iron birdcages. Then combine it with an exquisite oak framed restaurant and a luxurious private dining room - www.henrytudorhouse.com”
