user reviews of the Bulls Head, Shrewsbury

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

At 8.30pm on a Saturday night this Marstons pub was noisy and crowded.

Only two ales, Hobgoblin and Banks’ Bitter, and I’ve had a better kept pint of the latter for less money elsewhere.

Very handy for the station but nothing else to recommend it.

Rough and ready sort of place, though the Banks' bitter (2.20 per pint, is unwaveringly good). The Friday night disco is a bit overpowering (for my taste), so it's one pint and over the road.

This pub has improved a bit since I last visited (can't remember when that was). There was a mix of young and older customers in when I dropped by earlier today, and the older clientele didn't seem to mind the hip-hop and dance remixes that was on the jukebox. Had 2 pints of Banks's which were good but not special. An average pub overall, but I'm afriad the Bull's Head doesn't make my list of `Favourite Shrewsbury Pubs'.

Refurbished Marstons pub close to the station. Looks reasonable enough, inside and out, but annoyingly was being used as a children's playground with no attempt by parents or staff to keep the youngsters under control. Decent pint of Pump & Circumstance though, but quickly moved on to catch my train.

moclips2002 must be psychic or visited this place in the future!! After the refurbishment there are now 4 handpumps on the bar directly facing you as you walk in. Bankss Original and bitter plus Wychwood Wizards Staff and Marstons Lord Taverners Ale. I had a pint of the Wychwood it was OK but could have been better. The pub is much nicer inside than it was previously. The room to the right now has dining tables and chairs so they maybe planning to do food soon. The small back room has a pool table, large screen TV and a quiz machine. The small area to the left has a couple of settles and tables. Its a pleasant enough pub now, money well spent would be my opinion.

Closed for refurbishment on 11/06/09. The outside already looks a lot better, lets hope the inside gets a decent job as well.

Mock Georgian facade, flanked either side by buildings.

A Banks's pub that doesnt sell MILD, or real ales, so had to have a Banks's bitter instead. It was ok.

There was lively music on, despite half the people having just come back from Wembley after Shrewsbury lost to Gillingham (shame, i really wanted the Shrews to win). There was a spinny ball kind of thing and lasery kind of lights that left me feeling more irradiated than tomato soup in a microwave.

Bog standard and planty better places to go, even by the station

This pub doesn't have any handpumps. It's being confused with the Bull Inn on Butcher Row that is not currently on BITE but has been added to the suggestions for inclusion.

nothing special, slow service, typical nasty pub food fodder, 4 real ales (but being this part of the world - forced through various gizmos to froth it up and so kill most of the flavour) i was so pleased to be heading back south !

Live music on Friday's. Down to earth crowd.
