Welcome to the Mytton and Mermaid
Built originally as a private house on the banks of the River Severn, which may have dated from as early as 1725, commissioned by Richard Hill of Tern Hall (which would later become Attingham Hall, a stunning National Trust property open to visitors that sits opposite us) and believed to have been called ‘the Dower House’. Since then it has had many names, the Talbot Arms, the Berwick Arms before settling on the unusual Mytton and Mermaid in the 1930's after being purchased by the famous architect Sir Clough Williams Ellis, who developed the Italianate village of Portmeirion in North Wales. Sir Clough converted the building to a hotel and chose the name Mytton after a local character ‘Mad Jack Mytton’ a gentleman who squandered his fortune in the most spectacular way, and the Mermaid came from the crest of the Portmeirion hotel.
The building is surrounded by beautiful patios and sits on the banks of the river, so plenty of places to sit and enjoy the sunshine (when we are blessed with it), we have a Private Dining Room that seats up to 18, perfect for family gatherings and small meetings and we have 10 bedrooms if you’d like to stay with us overnight.
We look forward to seeing you,
Stuart and the Mytton & Mermaid team.
We love the idea of a circular walk to work up an appetite! But although we are in a picturesque part of Shrewsbury, there are not any obvious countryside rambles from the pub that do not involve walking along the busy B4380.
However, we wanted to share some beautiful walks within easy reach of us...
