The Lion Hotel

About the venue

Our wine tastings are held at the Lion Hotel, Wyle Cop, Shrewsbury.  This beautiful grade 1 listed former coaching house hotel has a wealth of 16th Century detail and makes a superb place to relax before or after a wine tasting. 

The hotel is centrally located in the wonderful market town of Shrewsbury, has a large car park and is a ten-minute walk from the railway station.

Note: most of our events are held in a room on the first floor, so there are a few stairs to negotiate.
