This pub is well off the beaten track and the walk here from the town centre was quite a slog. It's a Marstons pub and appeared to be fairly family oriented. Both the bar staff and the customers were friendly and there's a pretty good selection of beers, albeit moreorless all from the Marstons stable - Banks's Mild, Sharps Doom Bar, Wychwood Elderwych, Brakspear Oxford Gold, Marstons EPA & Single Hop, Jennings Steen Bee & Wells Bombardier & Jubilee Ale. My Elderwych was fine. Not bad for a Marstons pub.

Went for an evening meal on a Thursday. The landlord was very welcoming and friendly. Clean and tidy, and nicely furnished.

I had the grilled chicken, my friend has lasagne. We both enjoyed our meals and it was just enough to eat. The prices were a little expensive but we were not dissapointed by the food.

I have no idea why this is in the Good Beer Guide. It's a soulless pub chain pub with a couple of real ales on, but no more than what many pubs in Shropshire have. In fact when I went on a Thursday afternoon half the hand pumps were out. The clientele appeared to be almost entirely middle class retired/semi-retired folk chattering away over a glass of wine and some over-priced microwaved grub. This pub really should not be in the GBG. Unless in this part of town (not that you would) don't bother.

Went earlier in the week with Mrs Wolf, and it is a clean, decent pub, but entirely soulless. Good selection of beers on though including Wags to Witches and Keltek's Magik. Food menu didn't look too inspiring though. Worth an occasional visit for the different beers.

This pub is a long walk from the station, but I decided to go as according to CAMRAs GBG 2009 this is Ember Inns flagship pub. Well Im sorry, but that says a lot about Ember Inns. Its a bland conversion of what looks like a very large old house. It has the typical logs in the wall, cheap and nasty prints and generic furniture that a lot of their places have. Its major difference apparently is that they have a large range of cask ales on. They do, there are 9 handpumps, six were being used, one of them had an interesting beer on, Kelburn Red Smiddy, the rest were boring e.g. London Pride & Brew XI. It was full of people who have no imagination when it comes to pubs, eating bland bought in food. Fors gods sake if you want a curry then go to a decent Indian restaurant not a pub! It has a large beer garden and a car park if that rings your bell, otherwise I wouldnt bother.
