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

A popular roadside pub on the outskirts of town and close to the site of the Battle of Shrewsbury. Former Orchid Inns pub acquired by M&B in January 2015 and converted to their Sizzling Pubs brand in July 2016. The refurbishment has been long overdue, but has smartened the place up without significantly altering the layout of the pub. From the front door the area to the left still retains a bar feel, with the area to the right dominated by people ordering meals throughout the day - from Breakfast to Evening meals, with the bar opening as soon as the kitchen does, At various times in the past it has been owned not only by the Wrekin Brewery of Wellington, but also was a part of the large local estate of the Shrewsbury & Wem Brewery. Made it into the Good Beer Guide in the very early days (1976-77).
