Lion + Pheasant Hotel
Shropshire England SY1 1XJ
Even discriminating Brits find the Lion + Pheasant and its restaurant praiseworthy; both sit within walking distance of the Severn River and its lovely stone walkways and bridges. In summer, guests dine alfresco in the garden. Rooms are decorated in "shabby chic" fashion, with exposed timber beams and comfortable beds. For a more restful slumber, avoid the street-facing rooms.
