About the Pub

Formerly the Exchange Hotel, a change of ownership in 2008 and a major renovation resulted in a name change to Morgan's. It offers a comfortable atmosphere, with a cafe bar, restaurant, function room and accommodation. Another major refurbishment in Jan 2014 saw a change of decor and a more open feel to the bar area.

Yet another refurbishment in Jan 2016 saw the bar counter change again to a smaller more circular shape. The handpumps remained, though they have now been relegated to the back of the bar area and so are not immediately obvious. There are three handpumps at the back with normally only 2 are in use at any one time.

A change of owneship in 2019 saw the name changed back to the Exchange.

Historic Interest

The pub was rebuilt and set back from the corner in 1935 when road widening took place. At the time it was owned by Greenall Whitley, hence the Wilderspool plaque set in the external wall (Wilderspool was the name of Greenall's Warrington Brewery). When Greenall Whitley acquired the Wem Brewery in the 1950s the pub's beer was supplied from there until Greenalls closed it in 1988. In 1965 the Exchange became the first pub in the Shrewsbury area to serve beer through metered pumps.
