About the Pub

A busy and large community pub, supporting a golf society, football, darts and poker. Four TV screens, including one 3D. Extremely busy during football matches. Lunchtime and evening meals served, Apparently in the 1970's it was one of the first pubs (as opposed to hotels) in the Shrewsbury area to serve pub lunches. By all accounts they were well supported by staff from the then new Shirehall offices.

Regular Quiz, Bingo and Race nights to occupy the local community. It can get quite busy with funeral wakes since it is the nearest pub to the crematorium. The garden at the rear provides an alternative entry and exit point to Sutton Road. Was once one of the small number of Shrewsbury pubs owned by Border Breweries of Wrexham.

Only 5 handpumps these days, normally at least 4 in use at any one time.
