Dating from 1663 and lying in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, between the slopes of the Long Mynd and the Ragleth, this is a well established pub. Very much a dining pub with a lounge area either side of the central bar and a separate dining room. The exposed brick walls, wood beamed interior, and the woodburner in the inglenook undoubtedly give that traditional country pub feel. Its situation in prime Shropshire Hills walking country ensures the presence of walkers and visitors, although locals are also much in evidence. One of the 15 pubs in the Branch area appearing in the 1974 Good Beer Guide. Here's what it said! "Bass-Worthington Mitchells & Butlers Old pub in pleasant rural situation; coal fire in lounge. Handpumps not visible from lounge—real draught beer must be asked for". Became a Good Beer Guide institution for a time, with over 20 appearances in the first 30 years of the book.
