Fox Inn127 High Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
The Fox was once a part of the large local estate of the Shrewsbury & Wem Brewery, but is now one of three freehouses in Wem. It's a popular, friendly, and well run local with a good mix of clientele. Situated on the edge of town in an area once known as Ireland (reputedly because for a time the area was home to a predominantly Irish community). Basically a two roomed setup, it has a public bar and a separate room used as a drinking/dining area. But there's also a rather obscure little space which one could almost call a snug. The unusually high bar counter is the result of a previous refurbishment. The counter was moved back a few feet to create more drinking space as planned, but the presence of a large concrete block covering the cellar meant it had to be raised to sit on the top.
