user reviews of the Craven Arms, Craven Arms

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Huge coaching house from 1805. Despite being the only pub in Craven Arms (there is a hotel/inn by the discovery centre) its seems to be struggling, yet valiantly carrying on.

All neat and tiny inside. Multi roomed with a carvery/dining area, bar, pool room etc.

I was in on a Saturday and the landlord explained the menu was limited as it was January and they were moving to a new menu. No worries, the food was quickly served, good value and homecooked.

Beer wise - just the one real ale on and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Wadworth 6x.

I have no idea where the people of Craven Arms go out.

This place seems to be on the way down, having been given a refit some years ago, but never really attracting the required patronage. Poor ale choice on my visit today and my pint was short. Open all day every day... it's a bit like the "Wetherspoon" of this sad town (its only redeeming feature being Harry Tuffins for some bargains). Perhaps try the Stables for ale or the Stokesay for food.

Nipped in here on a Saturday lunchtime. I've driven through Craven Arms - the town: it's hardly a village any more - very slowly on numerous occasions (traffic always appalling) but had never stopped off.
Have to say The Craven Arms was a pleasant surprise. I'd expected it to be dark & dreary, but it was quite bright, though it was admittedly a warm and sunny late summer day.
It doesn't have a regular landlord at the minute, but the landlady temporarily in charge has been around the traps and knows her onions.
Excellent drop of Shropshire Gold. Also had Lemon Dream on tap, as well as Theakston's Dark Extra Cool and Symond's Cider. The usual lagers, cider and stout were also available. Not a large wine selection for a fair class eaterie, as it must be said the carvery was good value at £4.95 or £6.95 with a dessert.
Has a pool table in good nick and a dartboard sadly in a similar state to the great Jocky Wilson circa 2008.
I'll give the boozer an 8/10.

Nice enough pub for a big managed house. Decent pint of Hobson's Mild along with choice of Woods Parish or Salop Gold. Need more staff on as service was a little slow on Bank Holiday Monday early evening and the volume of the juke box? in the bar was too loud, disturbing diners and drinkers in the lounge area
