Found this pub by chance whilst we were on a shopping trip. Saw the sign and so glad we walked in,owing to the nearby pub being too full to accommodate us.
The staff were extremely friendly and the choice of lunchtime 2 for £10 was very good. We were pleased with the quality of food and speed of service.
My friend was extremely pleased to discover they sold low calorie wine and the glass of traditional ale I selected went down extremely well with lunch.
I particularly liked the feel of the old pub and would definitely return again as we had a pleasant experience.

Perfect location, room with bath (no shower but we were informed before hand so no problem). Car park was only a couple of minutes away at a cost of £5.90 - but again we were told before hand) but the central location was worth it. Breakfast was plentiful with a good choice.

Ale was good and service friendly and excellent. Wifi worked a treat. Overall we would stay here again.

We wanted to visit an "old England" pub and staying at the Old Post Office was perfect. The food is fantastic, and the service great. The decor is befittingly "old", and the building displays its age through its winding corridors and up & down stairs. It's in the centre of old Shrewsbury and you can walk to everything. We had a great time in the evenings with the regular pub crowd and entertainment, however we had to go elswhere for the Sunday evening meal. The only drawback for us was the difficulty in finding close parking.

We stayed for one night at the Old Post Office and although the room was clean and comfortable the decor was very basic (woodchip wallpaper throughout) and the en suite bathroom certainly need updating and the shaving light didn't work. As you would expect from a room in a pub, it wasn't quiet but realised that when we booked. It is in a good location but the pub itself could do with an update in a town full of much nicer drinking holes. The breakfast was very good.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the courtyard and because it was a warm evening the drinkers were out side long...

We stayed for 3 nights in the old post office in June and found the rooms dated and dusty. The extra money we payed for an ensuite didn't include a shower. At no point during our 3 day stay was our room cleaned (no new towels, no bins emptied etc.) and the communal shower room didn't appear to be cleaned either. Thankfully, we were out late on the Friday and Sunday night, but on the Saturday night our room 'shook' from the music from the band in the bar below. How can such loud music be played so close to guest rooms? On a positive note, the breakfast was ok and the location was excellent. Nevertheless we will not be returning to this dingy, dated and noisy guesthouse!
