A week away (Friday lunch).

Agreed, it's a bit like a gastro wine bar but the service was good. Had Salopian Lemon Dream, which was very nice. The other beer on was Butty Bach.

Enterprisingly, someone has produced a map of Shrewsbury's pubs so it was easy to find the next one …….

This has much more of a restaurant / wine bar like feel to it than your traditional pub, but nonetheless seems a popular spot and we only just managed to squeeze on to a table on a recent Friday evening visit. The right hand half of the pub appears to be more geared up for dining, with the bar area to the left. There is also a pleasant looking courtyard to the side of the pub, which was still busy even quite late on a September evening.

Its still got some traditional features such as beams on the ceilings, but has clearly had something of a contemporary makeover with a tiled black floor and rough, pale brown plasterwork on the walls. Seating was mostly wicker type chairs which are cropping up in many refurbished pubs these days, and all the tables had candles on them. There were also fairy lights adorning some of the ceiling beams, which may or may not add atmosphere depending on your point of view.

Beer choice was disappointing with just Three Tuns Rantipole on tap. The solitary cider was Thatchers Gold. This was served somewhat short, and was topped up rather begrudgingly, but even then still fell some way short of the rim.

I've been coming to this wine bar on and off for a good few years and have always enjoyed the place. Sure the wine bar area can get a bit congested when busy but I've never let that become a problem. Visited last Saturday and enjoyed 2 pints of Stonehouse Cambrian Gold Bitter which were very good. An excellent venue especially for couples and small parties to be wined and dined.

Smart wine bar and restaurant that sells real ale. The wine bar area is one fairly small room with the restaurant adjoining it, it also has letting rooms. Bare brick walls with lots of mirrors around, including most of the bar back. There are dining tables throughout with some stools around the bar. It is quite food led but it does have two handpumps, only one was in action when I visited with Stonehouse Station Bitter being on tap. The menu says that they have a changing guest ale on here, the next two pumpclips were another Stonehouse beer and a Woods beer. They also sell a range of bottled beer from Stonehouse. The pint I had was very good although it was a little pricey. Its a pleasant little place
