Surprising pub, looks small from the outside but very large once in. Polite, helpful barman, not got a smoking area. Only ale on was 'Doom Bar' but well kept.

Had a nice pint in here on a Friday lunchtime. Lively, not too busy. Could have a conversation. One minor complaint, don’t have football on big screens if it’s an obscure Spanish game. You didn’t look overly full of Spanish supporters!

Never tried the food but to be honest it looked a little bit better than spoons. On the beer front it was not that impressive with the best coming from purity brewery. Ok if your a cask marque scanner don't ask the blonde behind the bar where the certificate is, as you will get into a complex conversation that basically ends up with you being passed over to the nice gentleman with a brain who actually realises what the certificate is. Note to pub please train your staff on the things you advertise in the pub.

My husband and I have been visiting Shrewsbury every year to see our daughter and we always make a point to go to the Hole in the wall for a meal.
The food is very very good value for money, and we have never had a bad meal once.
The staff are very friendly including who we also to believe to be the manager and my husband has noted even one of the slightly eccentric chefs (that we do not believe we had seen last year) seems happy and very bouncy when he has come out to the bar for a drink and only makes the place seem more family run.

I would recommend this pub to everyone

I think this is a wonderful little place! Shrewsbury is such a beautiful town and there are so many places to eat that it is difficult to choose....however if like me, you want a happy medium of dining then this is the place to go.
My husband and I are from Telford and are relatively new to the Shrewsbury scene. We have eaten at The Hole in the Wall on a couple of occasions as we like the accessability of the venue and the varied and value for money menu. Previously we have been more than pleased with the acceptable service and food. However, today was a little bit different. Having ventured around town we again decided to lunch here, I like to avoid change so opted for an old favourite. The pub was quite busy (bustly not lively) but we were not kept waiting, although my salad came out not as described and not consistent with previous orders of the same dish!!! Now I hate to complain but I also feel that I do the chef a disservice if I don't point out my disappointment so I called over a member of staff and voiced my concerns. The young man swiftly whisked my plate away and said he would speak to the kitchen only to return moments later with a complimentary voucher for a free meal and to inform me that a revived meal would make it's way to me shortly with the chef's regards!!!
Wow!!! You don't get that kind of service in many high end hotels...have to say I am hugely impressed with the politeness and professionalism of the staff, the good will of the chef and the speed and grace in which the situation was dealt with. I was not expecting that at all and have to say that I think the staff on duty on 04/08/2011 are a credit to the company. I always enjoy my time here but now I will enjoy it all the more knowing that customers are still made to feel valued and welcome!
