See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This large terrace pub in the shadow of Shrewsbury Abbey is in a listed building, dating from 1725. The pub has undergone a recent sympathetic refurbishment and update. There are two distinct halves to the pub. The lounge side is more food oriented, the bar side contains the dart board. It was an entry in the early days of the Good Beer guide in 1975, though all it said at the time was "Bass Worthington Bitter and Mild, and M&B Mild"! For those with longer memories, it was also judged the 'Perfect Pub' in Shropshire in 1967, in the Shropshire Star competition of that year. Three changing beers are offered, from the Heineken list. The pub is licensed until 1am at the weekend. Bar snacks are served currently and a full menu will follow. Dogs are welcome in the refurbished garden and the bar. On-street parking is available immediately opposite.
