About the Pub

Now describing itself as a 'Riverbar & Grill', this ex Southams half timbered building dating from the 15th century can be reached via a footbridge from the Quarry Park. The low oak beamed interior has been refurbished recently (2013) and now provides a bright and modern look and from certain parts you can also have a river view. The facilities also include the Boatshed, which is a private function room. Note that prices are at the top end of the local range.

Any references to accommodation are just a pointer to the sister pub, the Lion & Pheasant Hotel which is about a mile downstream following the pleasant riverside path (closer to half a mile if the more direct route through the town is taken).

A Good Beer Guide regular in the 1980s/1990s, these days most tables are laid out for food showing a change in emphasis. Even so, there is still a choice of interesting, well-kept ales, albeit a tad on the expensive side.

Historic Interest

A little known fact (perhaps) is that, at the time of the Plague, the cellars had a more grisly function. They were used as a charnel house, storing the corpses of Shrewsbury's plague victims.
