A warehouse conversion that doesn't feel like 'just another warehouse conversion'. It is okay though rather than good - ale was drinkable (Weetwood) but they had bouncers on the door (and should have been £4 to get in for the band only I told them I was only having a swift pint and not staying for the band).

As the name implies this pub is a converted Warehouse, which occupies a prominent place outside the northwest corner of the city walls. Although it can be seen from a long way off, it isn’t until reach it, that you realise the frontage onto the street has no door ! Instead (and there are no signs) you have to go through an archway, down a worn and narrow flight of stairs, past a plie of about 100 used beer kegs, and round the back where the entrance is.

The bar is in a room to the right of the entrance, along the far wall. You can sit at the bar, or there are number of tables here, plus various objects (including a well winding mechanism), and a huge window looking out onto the moorings of the canal. There are laso other rooms, up and down stairs – but I haven’t explored those yet !

There are six changing beer on handpump – usually including at least one dark beer (hooray). Last time I had the Liverpool Organic Kitty Wilkinson Stout – which was reasonable. There are also a number of continental beers on keg. The ones I remember being La Chouffe and Warsteiner.

Food is available though the place doesn’t emphasize it. From the platter delivered to the chap next to me at the bar, it looked very nice. Then I saw the prices on the menu – virtually nothing under £12 ! One item cheaper was advertised on the wall behind the bar – Moulesona Monday ! [ Plates of mussels with various vegetables / sauces, including recommended beers for each style ]

There is also various live music events advertised - seems to be about 3 nights per week. The acts sounded interesting. I’m not sure whereabouts they hold the gigs – presumably in one of the rooms I’ve yet to discover. However, I have to report that there is rubbish background music playing most of the time.

A final word of warning, although there are none of the ubiquitous Sports TVs, as I was leaving they were unveiling an enormous flat screen to show the rugby – but seemed to be having trouble getting it to work.

8/10 – worth the trek out of town

A Sunday afternoon pit stop from shopping with the wife in town.

This pub is a large ex warehouse by the canal that is popular with cyclists, families and ladies who lunch.

6 hand pumps with 3 of the ales being guests. I had a pint of Wincle's Sir Philip @ 4.2%, a new beer from a new brewery for me and very good it was too. As well as the cask ales there's Timmermans, Punk Dog IPA and La Chouffe on keg as well as a good selection of European lagers.

The walls are adorned with old advertising signs and there's a large mechanical waterwheel in the centre of the main bar area. Original wooden flooring throughout with old wooden tables and chairs, there’s large glass windows that look out to the canal below. The room to the left of the bar hosts music nights and up a few steps is a room that was more laid for diners and was busy on my visit.

Lovely building and setting with good ales, perfect for a Sunday afternoon pit stop.

Visited Telford's on Saturday 8th February. Never been before, went primarily to see a band. Great venue, beer very good for both variety and quality. Very very busy, 5 deep at the bar for most of the evening, but if you wait your turn then it doesn't take long, the staff were very efficient and even better, very friendly. I plan to come again sometime midweek or earlier at the weekend, when i expect it won't be quite as crowded.

this place is superb and well worth seaking out. ale on great form. previously went in the Spitting Feathers Brewery Tap and I'd say TW had a better selection (just in my opinion of course) 9/10
