Quench your thirst or have a bite to eat at the Lion & Pheasant Hotel bar, 49-50 Wyle Cop (tel. 01743/236288; www.lionandpheasant.co.uk), where in colder months, an inviting firelight ambience presides. Or check out the Boat House Pub, New Street (tel. 01743/231658; www.theboathouse-shrewbury.co.uk), located beside a beautiful old park on the River Severn.
