About the Pub

Re-opened in December 2016 after a period of closure, a refurbishment and name change (Though the re-instated external 'Bricklayers' sign is still yet to appear (Sep 2017)). First mentioned in 1780, this former Worthington house has traditionally been known as The Bricklayers Arms (although it had a brief spell from 2011-16 as 'The Brick' to avoid confusion with a local pub of a similar name.) The original building with its Russian bagatelle board, and stabling for racehorses and greyhounds (the old Shrewsbury racecourse used to be nearby), has long gone and was demolished in the 1930's and rebuilt. Now part of the recently expanding New Brew empire (a very recent addition to the Shropshire brewing scene, based in nearby Newport. Originally Plan B, the branding is expected to change to New Brew in due course). Six handpumps, though normally only three beers will be on offer at any one time (Sep 2017).

The 2016 refurb has seen major changes. The long front bar counter has been shortened and rotated, giving more space to the front area plus easier contact with the back bar which has also been smartened up. For those familiar with the old pub, the pool room hasn't moved, though the alterations have enabled it to increase in size slightly. New permanent management from Sep 2017, who have plans to offer a food service.
