A Grade I-listed setting in the heart of picturesque Shrewsbury, The Lion Hotel presents a refined take on afternoon tea. As well as boasting pristinely manicured grounds, this stunning 16th-century building is decorated in period style.

Decked out in twinkling chandeliers, gilded mirrors and rich fabrics, The Lion Hotel dining room is a suitably luxurious setting for afternoon tea in Shropshire.

Indulge in a delightful afternoon tea stand at The Lion in Shrewsbury, piled high with traditional finger sandwiches filled with smoked salmon, home-cooked ham and cream cheese & cucumber, fresh homemade scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, and hand-crafted cakes. Gluten-free and vegetarian sandwiches can also be served on request.

Evoking the elegance of a bygone era, The Lion Hotel is found 11 minutes’ walk from Shrewsbury Train Station.

    Afternoon tea with my friend Kate was excellent. Although quiet in the hotel the staff were very polite and attentive.

    Enjoyed an Afternoon Tea with family members, one of whom was only expecting a scone and was surprised at the amount of food there was.

    Hello, the sandwiches were lovey, fresh and tasty. The cakes were uninspiring unfortunately, the cream was lovely and the scones ok, although the other cakes were eadible, but were boring. It would have been a nice touch to have them presented on 'pretty' fine bone china. Afternoon tea dates back to the 'fine'things in life.
    I suspect I was disappointed because I have experienced tea in the 'langham' and yes the price was attached.
    As for the price that was ok, although I was irritated by paying a premium for a third person! Why this price was not 50%less I fail to understand.
    The waitress was helpful, and her advice useful, when secelecting a sparkly wine, although it could have been more chilled. We were not offered any more tea or coffee which might have been good.
    The venue was not busy and staff could have been more attentive.
