Lovely afternoon tea
14 november 2016
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.

Very disappointed. Pot of lukewarm weak tea served 15 minutes after arrival followed 5 minutes later by a wobbly slanted unappetising looking tiered tea plate of food. Sandwiches were okay but the cakes looked a little tired and bland. My daughter had to go and look for someone to ask for some more tea and quite a while later a lady produced some warm water to top up our already very weak tea. No one came to ask if everything was okay but my daughter said that when I visited the ladies room a man in a coat did ask her. She was polite. I would probably have said I was disappointed. Although to be fair the food tasted better than it looked!
When we went to pay for our Afternoon Tea we were not asked if everything had been satisfactory but were told to enjoy the rest of our day.
It did not appear to be busy in the hotel and we were the only persons in the tearoom. I must say this is the only Afternoon Tea I have not really enjoyed.
I definitely would not recommend here to anyone for afternoon tea.

There were not expecting us, we did feel slightly in the way to begin, however, problem resolved and we had choice of tables. The once lovely sofas were very saggy and past there best! Sandwiches and scones were delicious, cakes left a lot to be desired. Staff were without exception friendly and helpful.

The price was more that what the booking stated. I asked for no fish on one of the disks and salmon was sent, it was sent back and then when it returned there was far less sandwiches. Other than that it was an ok experience. Gorgeous flapjack and scone, tea was a bit weak.

Afternoon tea was pleasant, China just like grannie had which was nice, sandwiches fresh and delicious scones warm and home made. Carrot cake strange consistency and difficult to eat other cake was flapjack I would have preferred a lighter sponge or if a biscuit shortbread. Sparking wine ordered as the tea was a birthday treat was 9.50 a glass and was from a previously opened bottle so was a disappointment also not cold enough and served in the wrong shaped glass when flat very quickly

Afternoon tea was not as enjoyable as I had hoped. The hotel was very dated and dreary. Old features are great but this was sad. The table was not in a dining room but the corner of a bar. The table was not big enough to be presented correctly and wobbled dangerously. The sandwiches were well filled but had been made long in advance and the bread had become very dry at the edges. The tea pot needed a tea cosy as the pot became cool very quickly so the 2nd cup was undrinkable. The scone was again quite old. Only the carrot cake was truly good.
