About the Pub

Previously the Acorn, the name change coincided with major renovations when Banks's acquired the pub in the 1990s, which included extending into the shop next door. A former Tanners house, it had a spell in the Good Beer Guide in the 1980s when it was a noted traditional M&B/Bass house. The pub is now starting to benefit both from the new building in the area, and the traffic restrictions to the front as a result of change of access to one of Shrewsbury's main car parks nearby. At the rear is the pool table and access to the patio garden.

Shared car-park at rear, with access from Town Walls.
