The Lion + Pheasant hotel is set in a former Grade II-listed coaching inn on Wyle Cop, in the market town of Shrewsbury. Parts of the inn date from the 16th century, and Charles Dickens reportedly once stayed there.

The hotel is a 2-minute walk from the banks of the River Severn and a 5-minute walk from Shrewsbury Abbey, which was founded in 1083 and was the setting for ITV's "Cadfael". Quarry Park -- an area known for its landscaped gardens and flower displays -- is a 12-minute walk away, and the hotel is around 20 minutes' drive from the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Beauty.

The restaurant is listed in The Michelin Guide 2016 and has two AA Rosettes. It is split between two floors and serves modern European food, using local and seasonal ingredients.

The property has featured in The Times's Cool Hotel Guide and received praise for the interior's "Scandinavian simplicity" and Red magazine picks out The Lion + Pheasant as one of the country's best gastropubs with rooms. The hotel uses natural materials such as limed oak, linens and silks. The rooms are contemporary in design, with silk furnishings, antiques and oak and wrought-iron beds.
