Hare & HoundsWalcot Road
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Although the Hare & Hounds is only some 8 miles from Shrewsbury centre and even less from Wellington, the journey through narrow country lanes suggests an incursion into the deepest of Shropshire countryside. It became a free house in February 2013 having been bought from Admiral Taverns. The internal layout is open plan, although its various snugs suggest it was once multi-roomed. This is definitely not a "destination" pub as the overall feel is of a comfortable, traditional local which is popular with the community and maybe even some followers from further afield! There are teams based here, including an archery club. There's a Bring and Buy Back book corner and dogs are welcome except when food is being served. The "plain" toilets have been replaced by quite swish facilities with a picture on the Gents wall of the mural that used to be there. In its time it has been owned by the Wrekin Brewery of Wellington, together with the Shrewsbury & Wem Brewery.
