Battlefield 1403 (Grocery Store)
“Farm shop off the main road and the turn is just after you go under the railway bridge (as most will end up driving here). A selection of low brick buildings around a courtyard, the shop is in one of them and carries local ales and ciders from various microbreweries and cideries. It's worth a look if in the area.“

Battlefield 1403 (Grocery Store)
“Posh Farm Shop complex with extras, visited on 30th June 2015 after hearing good things about it from friends. Sadly not as exciting as I was led to believe. Stocks beers from Shropshire and Montgomeryshire, or did on the day I went. Dickensian, Hobson’s, Monty’s, Salopian, Six Bells and Woods all represented with around 24 different bottles all told. Ciders also on the shelves: but did not check producers or rarity as I rarely drink them. Might be good for visiting tourists but not too great for the local beer hunter, although I did find two new bottles from Monty’s to help my Welsh beer total rise a little. The food counters, especially the butchers looked top notch, as did the prices. Beer bottles all cost around the £2:50 mark for a 500ml, so about average.“

Battlefield 1403 (Grocery Store)
“One of those modern big-farm-shop-with-add-on sort of places that seem to be popping up everywhere these days. The name of this one derives from the fact that it’s on the site of the Battle of Shrewsbury. Which, in case you hadn’t worked it ut from the name of the place, happened in 1403. The "add-ons" in the case are battlefield walks, a small but interesting museum (free), a falconry centre (small charge) and, of course, a cafe. However, it’s the farm shop that you’ll want to know about as it’s there that you find beery things. There’s a small selection of Shropshire breweries represented, some of which may be new to you, and there were some interesting Salopian beers on my visit There’s a nice selection of local food too, and the staff all seemed very keen and friendly. Perhaps not worth going out of your way to visit purely for the beer, but if you’re in the area and need somewhere with family add-ons, or you just like combining your beer purchasing with a bit of history, then this is certainly worth a visit.“
