Superb location. As expected on a sunny summer's day, absolutely rammed but the choice of several bars meant we didnt have to queue for long and there was still places to sit outside.

Nice range of Salopian beers and I went for a very decent pint of Gold.

I came here a little worse for wear from my previous nights escapades. It was about 1pm and I settled on the idea of gently easing myself in to the drink by supping halfs. The pub itself has a very picturesque setting next to the River Severn and sits next to the suspension bridge.

Like a previous reviewer observed there was 'Shropshire Lad' by Woods brewery along with 'Darwins Origin' by local brewery Salopian. Personally I couldn't take to the Shropshire Lad, but I much preferred Darwins Origin. It had a pleasant citrus undertone to it and was refreshing.

On my particular visit they had set up a tent for their beer festival, but unfortunately it didn't start until 5pm that day. (I wished that I had gone on the Fri and come home on the Sat now.)

Bar meals along with its own pizzeria and a special deal on fish and chips on a Fri.

Worth the short walk from central Shrewsbury, although they could utilize the unused handpumps on offer.

A popular pub on the banks of the river, the main draw here is undoubtedly the large outside seating, and a notice outside proudly proclaimed that it was Shropshires Best Beer Garden although it didnt specify who has decided that. The outside area consists of both wooden decking and a patio area, with much of it having some good cover as well in case of any inclement weather, and this offered good views of the river, the park opposite and the nearby footbridge.

The pub itself is U-shape with a fairly traditional interior, dark wood flooring, low beamed ceiling, etc., although its not perhaps quite as cosy as many places. Lots of windows along the back also make the most of the river views. A brick chimney with a wood burning stove were at one end of the bar, and around the corner to the left was a carvery counter. The lower part of the walls were clad in burgundy painted wood panelling, with either lemon or lime paintwork above.

Although we didnt try the food, the menu looked to be extensive and offered a good selection of pub grub dishes at around the 8.50 mark, as well as a good selection of burgers.

Beers on tap were Bombardier, Salopians Darwins Origin and Stonehouse Station Bitter. Ciders were Strongbow and Stowford Press.

Nice cosy, friendly pub, nice dcor, lovely outdoor seating area (must try it in the summer!) Very good beer, we had Woods 'Shropshire Lad' and Three Tuns '1642 Bitter'. also available was Salopian 'Dawwins Origin'. Didnt try it but food looked really good and was reasonably priced, Friday nights is beer battered fish and chips!
