"Ideal base for visiting Shrewsbury and surrounding area!"
Each year around the same weekend we visit Telford to attend the big IPMS Scale Modelworld event. Shrewsbury is the ideal base and we make a long weekend of it. The Old Post Office is ideally placed in the centre of Shrewsbury - handy for both the railway and bus stations. We prefer Shrewsbury to Telford or anywhere else to stay as the town has a wealth of options for eating and also some first-class pubs selling real ale which are included in the Camra Good Beer Guide.

Likes:
The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are comfortable. The facilities are as you would expect. Breakfast is excellent.
We like it here and will be making a booking for next year.
Dislikes:
Only being able to check in after 15.00. It would be nice if it could have been earlier but we were able to leave the luggage in a secure area and look round town etc and came back to check in later.

"Ideal for a stopover; astonishingly good value"
I needed to break a long rail journey, arriving at suppertime and leaving after breakfast, so chose the Old Post Office for its (relative) proximity to the station. I also needed ensuite accommodation and supper, all of which this pub was able to provide. Read less
Likes:
The welcoming staff; the astonishing value for money; the fact that the staff kindly provided me with breakfast at 8.30 (half an hour before it was due to begin) because of my train time.

The Old Post Office dates from the 16th Century and is the last of 5 public houses that were licensed in Milk Street. The others were The Angel, The Beehive, The Mug House and The Sun Tavern. The Old Post Office has kept the same name throughout it's history. The has nothing to do with The Royal Mail, but refers to a posting house horse-drawn coaches and as late as 1900 there was stabling for thirteen horses. Wagons to Lyth Hill, Condover, Ryton and Wheathall would depart the inn on Wednesdays and Saturdays of each week.

The pub currently has six hotel rooms and a function room which is available for private parties as well as playing host to a wide variety of live music events. The building is Grade II Listed and many features of the original building still remain. The pub maintains it's reputation for excellence with a wide range of traditional cask ales and home-cooked food.
