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

Previously the Acorn, the name change coincided with major renovations when Banks's acquired the pub in the 1990s, which included extending into the shop next door. A former Tanners house, it had a spell in the Good Beer Guide in the 1980s when it was a noted traditional M&B/Bass house. The pub is now starting to benefit both from the new building in the area, and the traffic restrictions to the front as a result of change of access to one of Shrewsbury's main car parks nearby. At the rear is the pool table and access to the patio garden. Shared car-park at rear, with access from Town Walls.
