A 17th Century Coaching Inn with a wealth of character set in the medieval ‘Black and White’ town of Much Wenlock, Shropshire, the Gaskell Arms Hotel is a family run hotel and restaurant.

At the Gaskell Arms we offer both bed and breakfast and self-catering accommodation in the hotel and spacious grounds, providing a wonderful base for visitors to Shropshire, for business trips and leisure with everything guests could need for a comfortable stay.

The a la carte restaurant and bar provide a selection of delicious home-cooked meals, using local produce and suppliers where possible, perfect for our guests to refuel during their stay.

If you are looking for the ideal venue for a business meeting, private event or a special occasion such as an anniversary or small wedding party, our team can help with this also, with plenty of experience of pulling together events, with every detail taken care of.

The Gaskell Arms’s charm doesn’t stop there, it also has a walled garden – a great way for our guests to make the most of the stunning surroundings on a sunny day whilst enjoying some of the local thirst quenching tipples available.

Whatever your requirements… a weekend break, a business trip or that very special occasion, we can offer you the best in friendly, professional service. Why not pay us a visit, and see for yourself, we look forward to seeing you.


We are now taking bookings again from May 17th for accommodation, dining and events.

(This is based on no further delays from the government on the easing of the national lockdown)

From the 12th April we will be serving drinks and a limited food menu in our garden only as per the government guidelines. The rule of 6 will apply.

However these tables will not be bookable and based on a first come first served basis.

Fingers crossed for a warm and dry April

The main reason for this is our opening will strictly depend on weather conditions due to our garden being uncovered and we would not like to disappoint guests further by having to cancel bookings.

Our opening hours will be 12pm until 9.00pm 7 days a week (weather permitting)

Food will be served from 12pm until 8.00pm

From May 17th all guests wanting to visit us must remember when it comes to dining or drinking the rule of 6 will still apply. (Both indoors and outdoors)

You can now make your online reservation for May 17th onwards.

If there is anything we can assist with regarding future booking please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming our lovely friends and customers back to enjoy our lovely walled garden and terrace.

FROM JUNE 21st  All restrictions to be lifted  (hopefully)
