user reviews of the Britannia Inn, Shrewsbury

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

We had a quick pint in here this week, Shropshire Gold on hand pull, seemed friendly but very quiet, I wish the owner well, this block had five pubs in the late 1800s!

Strange looking pub from the outside - it looks more like it should be serving tea and scones than beer. We only found it by accident. We had popped up to look at the exterior of the Rock & Fountain over the road, only to be scared off by the Carlin' and Worthington signs on it. We dived into the Britannia, for cover, once i realised there were no cakes in the window and i did in fact sell beer.

Sort of a half traditional and half trendy refurbed kind of place with the usual taps, Youngs Bitter and, what turned this place into a nice find, a great Ansells MILD, though it was slightly too cold.

All in all, will definately visit again, purely for the MILD, if that went, i guess, unless a few more real ales came on, so would I

Totally agree with the previous,to come to shrewsbury and drink youngs bitter is just dull,beer was served too cold and the pub smelt of bleach too, shame 6/10

Now has two handpumps, however one was turned round on 6th Jan, mind you it was a freezing cold Tuesday with not many people around. The one beer on was Youngs Bitter. For some reason there seems to quite a bit of Youngs and Fullers around in Shrewsbury, why is that when there's plenty of good local beer around. Friendly locals pub with a roaring real fire. Close to the station and well worth a visit.

Recently refurbished (except for the Gents)and now has one tap for real ale - a pretty reasonable Black Sheep when I was in. Fairly comfortable and clean. Pool Table. Live music sometimes. Next to Royal Mail depot. Average pub, bu tbetter than some others in the area with 6+ ratings
