About the Pub

NOTE: Currently closed and on the market.

After a change of ownership, a lengthy period of closure, and a major refurbishment, Jack's doors finally opened to the public in November 2015. And it looks as if it has been worth the wait! There has been a subtle change in emphasis in that the owners definitely want it to be a vibrant country local, but with good quality dining as well. The refurbishment has made good use of what was a former farmhouse with its boarded flooring, vaulted ceiling, and stone walls. So drinkers have the Tap Room and the Snug, together with the lounge, whilst diners have the large dining room. Each area has been tastefully done out with furnishings designed to be comfortable, attractive or maybe even quirky! Particular points to note are the seating with the very special Jack Mytton upholstery, reclaimed boatyard timber on the wall behind the bar, and some other reclaimed timber on the lounge wall. The skylight between the Snug and the lounge is quite an imaginative way of providing some light to a dark little area. There's a pleasant courtyard together with the unusual feature of an outside bar. Its location as one of only four Shropshire pubs on the Llangollen Canal, together with moorings and extensive gardens, adds further appeal (and indeed potential). And then there's Jack Mytton himself! He was Squire "Mad" Jack Mytton (1796-1834) of the nearby Halston Hall who was a character who, possibly through his legendary exploits as a sportsman, eccentric and drunkard, lost his fortune and ownership of the Hall to pay off his debts. The carving of Nell the bear standing guard in the car park is a reminder of one such exploit! He died in a debtors' prison at the age of 37 "a round-shouldered, tottering, old-young man bloated by drink, worn out by too much foolishness, too much wretchedness and too much brandy". One further point of interest is that on the lane approaching Hindford, there is the remains of a stone built bridge. This rather sad structure recalls the time when the Cambrian Railways line passed along here carrying happy holidaymakers from Whitchurch to the Cambrian Coast resorts. Note All Day Breakfast but check with Facebook site. Also, evening closure may vary if footfall is limited.
