Places to eat & drink in Bishops Castle.

Little remains of the 12th castle from which this town took its name, but there is no shortage of fine buildings, including Tudor houses. Bishop's Castle is a tiny settlement clinging to the steep hillside 150m up on the edge of the Clun Forest. The town once claimed to be the smallest borough in England - but it has lost its status whilst retaining its charm. Nearby are the Stiperstones, a range of hills with a 1,700ft summit, part of a 1,000 acre national nature reserve. Mary Webb gave them a supernatural flavour in her 1916 novel ‘The Golden Arrow’. Shropshire’s most ancient monument, a stone circle containing 15 stones, lies at Mitchell’s Fold. The full story of the town’s history can be found at the curiously-named House on Crutches Museum.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Bishops Castle or surrounding areas.
