About the Pub

Formerly the Salopian Brewery tap, and once known as the Windsor Castle some years ago, this terrace pub was re-opened under new ownership in July 2011. As part of the extensive alterations, the internal layout became open plan and the bar was resited. With more comfortable furnishing and a brighter decor, the feel of the place is more of a modern bar than the traditional pub. The location is definitely suburban, but blessed with an extremely attractive vista from the rear of the pub, providing splendid views over the River Severn and the County Showground beyond. However, be warned, although the Showground looks to be at the bottom of the garden, due to the river in-between and the location of the nearest downstream bridges, it is actually about 2 miles away by road or footpath!

As the Windsor Castle, it was an early Good Beer Guide entry in 1975, when it was said to be a "friendly pre-war pub". M&B Mild was available, together with "Bass Worthington"

Historic Interest

The name was changed from the Windsor Castle in the early 1980s, the Bull in the Barn was an older pub which once stood across the road on the original route to Wales but was knocked down when Thomas Telford re-aligned the road in the 19th century.

    A downward flight of steps at the rear enables access to an extremely attractive terrace to the rear, providing a spectacular view over to the River Severn and the County Showground beyond. (Though whether it does have the 'best garden in town' as the pub claims is open to debate).
