Riverside Inn, Shrewsbury
Set in the charming Shropshire village of Cound, the Riverside Inn, Shrewsbury, is a stunning Grade II listed hotel with history, modern rooms and idyllic views out over the River Severn.
A postcard-perfect riverside hotel and country pub
The Riverside Inn was originally built in 1861 as a train station along the now closed Severn Valley Railway line. It might serve a very different purpose today, but the hotel more than retains its original 19th century charm, from its stunning exterior to the period features throughout our rooms, bar and restaurant.
Rest assured that our six bedrooms are far from old fashioned. Each room is named after a popular nearby walking route and has been decorated with fabulous décor and to high standards. Inside every room you’ll find a large and comfy bed that’s perfect for a great night’s sleep as well as a bright and airy en-suite bathroom.
Explore Shropshire and make the most of your stay
Our rural riverbank setting provides a great opportunity for exploring local walking paths and the surrounding countryside. The hotel is an ideal location for trips into the medieval town of Shrewsbury, with charming shops and cafés on offer. Great local sites and attractions include Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery, the Quarry Park, and Market Hall Shrewsbury.
With excellent transport links throughout the rest of Shropshire and the region, day trips to the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or to nearby Birmingham and Wales and simple.
Eat and drink in picturesque surroundings
After a full day exploring the best of Shrewsbury, there’s nothing better than some time spent in our traditional inn pub and restaurant. You can enjoy freshly prepared meals throughout the day, whether you fancy a pub classic or a seasonal special. And there are plenty of cask ales, premium lagers and fine wines available from the bar.
You also have the option of eating and drinking in our attractive bar and restaurant or stepping outside into the expansive gardens and riverside terrace where you can enjoy a spectacular view of the River Severn and the rolling countryside.
Make the most of your stay
There’s so much to see and do all year round near the Riverside Inn, whether you’re looking for some fresh air in the countryside or to explore the medieval town of Shrewsbury for some sightseeing.
Almost surrounded by the River Severn, the medieval town of Shrewsbury is just a short drive away with its imposing red sandstone castle (now a regimental museum), boasting Tudor architecture, beautiful parks like the spectacular 29-acre parkland on the riverside – the Quarry, and fascinating museums and historic sites such as the prison and the Music and Art Gallery.
