This former Butlers house has been in the same family since 1985. It’s not really a town pub, and yet it’s not suburban either. The Cross Foxes is probably the nearest thing in Shrewsbury to the traditional boozer, with all the emphasis on drink sales, and most of the clientele is local. Maybe this is because it is noted for the quality of its Bass, its largest seller. The pub is “L” shaped with just one room and it’s obvious from the many trophies that bedeck the walls, that darts and dominoes are popular. There is a nice welcome, and at once you will get a comfortable feeling from being there. Sunday night is a quiz night. The TV is used mainly for major sporting events and afternoon racing. Beware the M&B Mild pumpclip which is attached to an unconnected handpump (Keg M&B mild is available further along the bar). Disabled access: For wheelchair or disabled entrance, please phone the pub on your approach, and they will unlock the rear gate and assist with navigation.
