An old timber framed pub close to the church close in Shrewsbury, a lovely setting but unfortunately rather lack lustre. It is really un-atmospheric, it’s like a hotel dining room, the tables are all laid for diners, which seems to be its main business. Quiet, you can hear the ticking clock, even when reasonably busy. We felt in the way as we were only drinking.

Well known as a ’no smoking’ pub years before the national ban came in: I’ve used this bar many, many times and highly recommend it if visiting Shrewsbury. Used by lunch-time diners as well as Real Ale fans. Beer quality has never been an issue, finding space and getting served can be: because it is small and so popular.

Lovely olde worlde pub in the centre of Shrewsbury opposite a fine old church. The beer selection was impressive with seven real ales plus ciders and perries available and the ones that I had both from Purple Moose were in tip top condition, the barman certainly knew his stuff and was pleasant enough but sadly lacked character and wouldn’t really ever engage in conversation.
