The Boat House - Shrewsbury

The boathouse bar and grill 

The interiors of this back and white Tudor inn are intimate, a set of small adjoining rooms with wood deck floors and scrubbed oak tables gives the impression of being on a boat sailing down the Severn.

The elevated situation above the river captures the reflected light from the flowing water below and creates views to the park.

 In winter the log burner is the focal point in the back bar , and in the summer tables alongside the leaded windows are favourite viewing spots.

Furnishings are simple , timber painted slatted benches , a collection of stick back painted antique chairs and welsh blankets .

Whitewashed walls with pale painted wood panelling emphasise the willows and landscape beyond .

The real attraction is the Boathouse beer garden , an extensive timber deck on the waters edge , capturing the sunshine,here it’s all about the waterside activity , the many boats , rowers , and the resident ducks and swans .

Recently, elegant canvas structures have been installed to shelter diners and drinkers from spring showers and to shade them from the summer sun.

Festoon lights and flame heaters illuminate the terrace at night creating a magical gathering place .

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
