About the Pub

Very much the traditional two room pub which should be celebrated and not overlooked as it tends to be. Once owned by the nearby Southams brewery which closed in 1966, it is located in the Coton Hill area on the edge of the town centre. Note that once you cross the railway going out of town towards Ellesmere you wont see another pub for about 6 miles. This is largely due to outer areas of Shrewsbury such as Greenfields having restricted covenants placed on the sale of alcohol by the original landowners who were dedicated to temperance.

The traditional front bar of the Bird in Hand has darts & pool, the comfortable lounge has proper dining tables and can be accessed from a side entrance or the car park but not directly from the bar. It is run by the longest serving licensee in Shrewsbury (since 1975).

    Don't forget the surprisingly large and pleasant beer garden tucked away at the back of the car-park. Sadly the view of the Castle has been lost thanks to new builds in the vicinity, but other highpoints of the town centre skyline such as St Marys church and the library can still be seen.
