About the Pub

Located close to the Quarry Park and handy for Theatre Severn, this is one of two Wetherspoon pubs in Shrewsbury. Montgomery's Tower opened in August 2008, it is a Lloyds No.1 conversion of a former nightclub and is a busy, popular and comfortable pub with a choice of two bars. To the left is a large open area rich in natural light, in contrast the bar to the right has subdued lighting providing quieter surroundings. However, on Fridays and Saturdays this area is more lively when the music gets going. Also, as the pub is close to the Sixth Form College nearby, it can get very busy with students taking their lunches, although this is not so much a problem these days as the college has been split over a number of sites. Many prints are displayed illustrating local history and famous Salopians.

New management from Oct 2016.

Historic Interest

The Montgomery's Tower name is a reference to a nearby watch tower situated on the old Town Walls at the bottom of Claremont Bank. The tower was rented by the Montgomery family, wealthy Tanners of the 17th century, it was demolished in the 18th century.
