We have a Tesco express and M&S Foodhall, a 10-minute walk from the house in the town centre. For bigger supermarkets, we have a Sainsbury’s and a large M&S Food Hall, all about a 10 minutes drive in the car.
There are so many but here are some we like. For more fine dining we would recommend The Walrus or Lion and Pheasant or Hencote has a beautiful view over the town, this is a short drive out of the town. Italian – La Dolce Vita or Osteria Da Paolo. For a good curry The Curry House or Avatar. Pizza – Dough & Oil. The Istanbul Restaurant has a wide selection of charcoal grills. The Olive Tree or Casa Naranjo for Tapas. House of the Rising Sun and The Armoury are always firm favourites, along with Cote. And not forgetting The Boat House, which has a great outdoor space and overlooks the river. Number Four does a great brunch. We also like Hickory’s and not forgetting The Market Hall, where you can eat and shop for local produce.
The house is located right in the centre of the historic town of Shrewsbury. Shrewsbury has over 600 listed buildings from the 16th and 17th centuries. Unfortunately in the 1960s, some historic buildings were demolished to make way for a very different architectural style and I am sure you will spot these buildings. Just remember when you are walking around to look up. A walk past the train station, castle, and old library building is worth seeing. If you go straight across the road from the front door you will come to the Quarry Park, which is a beautiful 29-acre parkland providing the perfect place to relax, enjoy walks, picnic, or play a game of ball with the family. At the heart of the Quarry lies the Dingle, a floral masterpiece cultivated by world-renowned gardener Percy Thrower, who served as Parks Superintendent for 28 years. It’s a delightful sunken garden landscaped with alpine borders, shrubbery, and charming water features that is worth a wander around. We also hold many festivals in the Quarry, check to see what is on go to visitshropshir.co.uk. Shrewsbury Prison is worth a visit and has featured on many TV series. Attingham park is part of the National Trust and the Shropshire hills, an Area of Natural Beauty and are only a short drive away,
