Belle Vue Tavern115 Belle Vue Road
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Formerly called the Old Plough, it became the Belle Vue Tavern in 1991. Older visitors will remember the tree directly outside which fell down in a storm on Christmas Eve 1996. It is a comfortable and friendly suburban local which has undergone some internal renovation. It has four separate areas which function as public bar, snug and lounge. The pub participates in various local games leagues, and has the trophies to prove it. The prominent signage both external & internal proclaiming 'Shropshire Ales' is a relic of the past. Since then it has been owned by Heineken UK (formerly a Scottish & Newcastle outlet, for a time the only one left in Shrewsbury!), but this has now changed following the pub's purchase by Admiral Taverns in October 2016. Has to be said, for a traditional suburban boozer the real ale prices tend to be on the expensive side (May 2017).
