See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Built in the 1870’s as a retirement home for a wealthy Shrewsbury merchant, this large pub was first licensed in 1931, when it was extended into the building that we see today. The previous owners who took over in December 2012 have now moved on (Nov 2016), the new management team are also responsible for the well-respected Boathouse venue closer to the town centre. Formerly the Brooklands, after refurbishment in mid 2017 the pub re-opened as the Wild Pig. It is a huge barn of a place that needs a lot of customers to make it work properly. The raised area at road level is a traditional bar filled with sports TVs, pool table, dart board and gaming machines. Down a few steps is a large lounge with a range of different tables and seating arrangements. Further on is the restaurant and function room. The massive car park is home to car boot fairs on most Sunday mornings. The local Football League team, Shrewsbury Town, plays nearby, and supporters can pay to park their cars here on match days. New management from November 2019. Renamed Brooklands 2020.
