The Golden Cross Hotel
  • 14 Princess Street
    SY1 1LP
A gourmet restaurant in Shrewsbury with an informal, intimate atmosphere that is perfect for all occasions.

The Golden Cross Hotel can be found on Princess Street, a quiet yet central part of town. Dating back to 1495, this public house, English restaurant and B&B in Shrewsbury has a history and character that is hard to beat.

Owned and run by Gareth and Theresa Reece, their Shrewsbury restaurant offers an eclectic fine dining experience with no pretensions or stuffiness. From Valentine's Dinner to Sunday Lunch, The Golden Cross can accommodate... although booking is always advised due to their popularity.

Theresa has over 25 years in the restaurant trade and wanted to provide Shrewsbury with a high quality but informal dining experience, where there may be a young couple on one table, a family on the next, grandmothers and children together...!

In addition to the ground floor restaurant, there is a private upstairs dining room, perfect for a special celebration.


Five luxury en-suite B&B rooms

  • Nestling amongst medieval eaves
  • Double room (£75)
  • Single occupancy available (£70)
  • Twin room (£135)
  • King-sized superior room (£125)

The food at The Golden Cross Hotel is sourced locally wherever possible, with the freshest of produce ensuring a gourmet delight seven days a week. The menu is changed daily and is seasonal.

Their renowned wine list comes courtesy of Bibendum Wine, one of the UK's premier wine merchants. Theresa believes in great quality at great prices, so you will not find big mark-ups on The Golden Cross's wine.

Or if you prefer beer with your meal, talk to Gareth. He sources the best in real ales from Shropshire breweries.
