About the Pub

Even locals can struggle to find this pub, hidden in the back-streets of Castlefields. Originally an 8 room pub in 1872, it is now an unexpectedly large one room pub with alcoves for darts, dominoes and pool (the football team probably have their own area as well). Indeed it has been known to be called "The Tardis". Easily accessible from the free car park behind the nearby shops off New Park Road. Current management took over in August 2011. Simple bar snacks are available (pork pie etc). It was once a part of the large local estate of the Shrewsbury & Wem Brewery.

Historic Interest

The pub sign depicts the famous american inventor Samuel Morse, who helped to develop the Telegraph & Morse Code systems. He has no known Shropshire links, the connection would appear to be that the pub opened at about the time he died in 1872.
