About the Pub

Built by Bass in the 1930's, and acquired by Joule's Brewery in 2009, this is a comfortable two roomed local situated on a prominent street corner. The bulk of the pub consists of two open areas with a small enclosed room on the car park side. The side wall of this room illustrates several examples of brickwork bonding, so is quite educational (it is the Bricklayers Arms after all!). Re-opened in March 2011 after an extensive and tasteful renovation by Joule's. All in all, what was a rather faded place, has now become a successful community pub.

In October 2015 an additional room opened following the build of a sympathetically structured extension to the pub. This has greatly increased the seating capacity of the pub, and is called the 'Mayor's Parlour'.

Historic Interest

The 'Mayor's Parlour' is a reference to Thomas Pace, Mayor of Shrewsbury in 1921, he lived nearby on Pengwern Road.
