Small traditional pub, pleasant attentive barmaid, friendly landlord. Good smoking area to the side. Beers indulged in were Thwaites ''Wainwright'' [well kept], Wye Valley ''HPA'' [not bad] & Titanic ''Plum Porter'' [well kept good tasty ale].

Excellent recommendations from the staff led to two untried bitters being taken. If you're thinking of going here then leave room for a most excellent pork pie, pickled onions and mustard. Good jukebox with unusual selection of music.

I thought this was a great bar when I came to Shrewsbury. It has a bar with a J shape when you enter with seating by the windows and further seating past the bar, the television was on when I was in but it wasn't noticeable. I noticed 5 ales when I was on with most of them being localish (the only truly local one was Three Tuns xxx from what I recall). I went for a pint of HPA by Wye Valley at 3.30 a pint and it was a pretty decent beer and well kept. This place doesn't feel tired or anything like that and it attracts young and older folk so the vibe was very pleasant I thought. I'd say this one is definitely worth checking out when in Shrewsbury.

Old style "proper" pub that looks like a pub and attracts a lot of locals and travelling gangs of CAMRA wannabes. Propensity to deal in a lot of local fare beer-wise which is quite dull and samey, save for anything from Salopian brewery which tastes like something dreamt up in a GCSE chemistry lab and completely bolloxed by chucking a lemon tree into every brew.

Boasts some historic building framework which also makes attracts travelling hoards of nerds every now and then and is reputed to have some ghosts (yawn) which similarly attracts some ghost tours in the winter.

The only poltergeist I've come across is in the gents toilet which must contain something dead underneath - either that or it needs sorting.

I popped in here for a couple of pints after football on Saturday. Good choice of ales, very friendly efficient service, and very pleasant beer garden to rear. Sorry I couldn't wait!
