Hawkestone Arms97 New Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Situated in the northern part of Wem in an area occasionally referred to as Islington, the Hawkestone is a straightforward local serving its own residential area. Internally there are bar and lounge areas where most of the action takes place. A separate snug is also available but that does not have such regular use. It was once a part of the large local estate of the Shrewsbury & Wem Brewery. Having been put up for sale by Punch Taverns, it changed hands in late 2015.
