From What Time Can We Arrive?
To extend courtesy to the previous days’ guests, we are unable to open our doors and accommodate your arrival until 12.30pm. At this time our reception team will be ready to greet you and check those staying overnight in prior to room keys being available at 1pm.
Do you have overnight accommodation?
We ask couples getting married with us to allocate all bedrooms (there’s no denying that the couple will know you all better than we do and can select the most appropriate room for your stay). If you haven’t been allocated a room, don’t worry; there are plenty of lovely local B&B’s as well as larger hotels nearby. All accommodation bookings at Rowton Castle include full English Breakfast!
We are so looking forward to welcoming you to Rowton Castle! You may have more questions, and that is okay. Get in touch, we’d be delighted to help you with these.
Where can we get lunch?
We do not provide lunch prior to weddings. The kitchen is already in full swing at this point preparing a delicious wedding breakfast for you to all enjoy. If you fancy a snack or quick lunch before the wedding, the town of Shrewsbury is perfect for this. Just a few short miles away, there are a wide range of restaurants for all tastes.
Do you have your own bar?
There are a number of bars here at Rowton Castle; all of which differ in style and ambience. Our bars stock a fantastic range of lagers, craft beers, cider, cocktails, spirits and a selection of wines at reasonable prices. We take card payments and accept apple pay (we are now completely cashless). We do expect that drinks consumed on the premises are bought from the bar whilst open.
Can you recommend a taxi service?
We can recommend a number of companies based both in Shrewsbury and Welshpool. Please do book your taxi before the wedding evening where possible – this is advised for weddings taking place on any day of the week but is especially important on Friday and Saturday evenings. Music finishes and the bar closes to non-residents at 12am. You may find that times between 12am and 12.15am are the most suitable when arranging your taxi.
