Visited Saturday eve 9th Jan. Seems a nice enough pub with big open fire but was disappointed with the cask ale choice. 6 hand pulls but only two on and the best was London Pride, other clips were facing forward but was told that the Three Tuns and Black Sheep brews were "off" - I hate being teased with "this is what you could have had" and a Cask Marque inspector would mark them down for it! Food selection looked very wide ranging although didn't eat so can't comment on the quality. One TV showing the live football with everyone crowded round it, the other showing Sky Sports News. Separate restaurant area - serves Crocodile, Ostrich, Bison etc. Steaks!

Real mix of people in here for a Tuesday. Locals round the bar, football fans watching the TV and a few people in for the food. Real fire in the main room but freezing in the separate restaurant area. 3 handpumps but only London Pride and GK IPA on tap. Had a pint of the IPA, it was OK, but then IPA is only an OK pint at it's best. Looks like a popular pub and it's certainly one I'll call in again when in this part of town.

Once just about the smokiest pub in Shrewsbury, unfortunately post ban you can smell all the other odours it has to offer.

Saying that it has character, beers OK and if in the area well worth popping in.

Usually shows sport on the TVs and ocassional live music too.

An historic pub - see the bit of wattle exposed behind a perspex panel. Only a few step east of the Abbey up the Abbey Foregate. Brother Cadfael would have dropped in for a quick one on his way to St. Giles. Good beer and good food (including exotics). Not the best in Shrewsbury at either, but well above the average and well worth a visit.
