About the Pub

Large 500 year old Coaching Inn built in the shadow of the parish church. The Red Lion is one of only two Thwaites outlets in Shropshire (the other being in Oakengates), and is a popular, comfortable and attractively presented pub. The lounge/bar is L-shaped where it's easy to linger especially when reading the quirky sayings on the walls. Additionally there is separate games provision, and the Sunday quiz nights are popular. The local tourist honeypot of the Mere is but a short walk away, although one could hire a bike at the pub (for free!) and wander a little further afield. Was once a part of the extensive local estate of the Shrewsbury & Wem Brewery.

Note that the pub is currently offered a reduced food menu (June 2018).
