About the Pub

A welcome new Real Ale outlet in Shrewsbury, having been a non-real-ale nightclub venue previous to its total refurbishment in early 2017.

A vast minimalist space greets you, with wooden panelling and exposed fixtures etc., giving the overall impression of someone's shed, or perhaps an industrial unit. Clean and tidy, though the decor is designed to look industrial and grimy. There is much to interest the eye, while you sample one of the ales on offer; a couple of regulars and a guest or two is planned. Old vehicle frontages are used as furniture (familiar to those who have browsed around the British Ironwork Centre near Oswestry).

Appears to be unconnected to the more well known Albert's Shed in Manchester. A quirky place to visit for the more elderly CAMRA members during the day, though be warned it reverts to it's vibrant young persons atmosphere in the evenings.

Historic Interest

A pub of many names since it was first recorded as the Slipper in the 18th century, reverting to the Old Slipper in the late 19th century. For most of the 20th century it was part of the M&B empire, before being acquired by Wolverhampton & Dudley (Banks's) who themselves rebranded it several times (Jackson's, Merchant Stores, Rowley's etc)
