Tucked away in the shadow of St Mary's church, the bar with its low ceiling and late 17th century panelling contains artefacts which are best seen first hand. It's certainly a mecca for those who believe Halloween should last more than one day! Also, if you're into rock music, you may well appreciate this pub, which confidently labels itself as 'Shrewsbury's only Rock pub'. As a result, Robinson's 'Iron Maiden' Trooper ale which started out as a guest has become a permanent fixture. In 2014 it was twinned with the Wychwood 'Status Quo' Piledriver ale for a time, but the Quo lost that particular battle. For those not so appreciative of classic rock, the volume is usually (but not always!) confined to the evening hours. Another of Shrewsbury's pubs which is allegedly haunted! In the 1930s it was reputedly the last Shrewsbury pub to sell its own home-brewed ale. Since then it has been owned by the Wrekin Brewery of Wellington, and latterly was also part of the large local estate of the Shrewsbury & Wem Brewery.
