About the Pub

Situated on what used to be the busy A5 route to North Wales, the Old Three Pigeons, having been in the same family for over thirty years, is a well established pub/restaurant. Although much of the space is devoted to dining in three rooms, provision is made for the casual drinker in two bars. These have a cosy rustic feel, with low beamed ceilings, boarded floors, "country style" tables and chairs, sofas and a wood burning fire. The exposed walls are of interest in that they are built from very large blocks of the local red sandstone. An exciting development at the pub is the landlord's two barrel brewing plant, which from November 2015, is used to brew Ness Ales' Humphrey's Tipple. Although the Three Pigeons is a pleasant place to spend time, maybe one should not linger too long, as the ghost of Humphrey Kynaston, Shropshire's answer to Robin Hood, is said to pay the occasional visit! And of course, he gives his name to the beer brewed at the pub. One can even visit "Kynaston's Cave" in the Nesscliffe Country Park which is close by Noted footballers Bobby Charlton and Duncan Edwards were based at the nearby Nesscliffe Army Camp during their time in National Service in 1956.

Once owned by the Wrekin Brewery of Wellington and later Greenall Whitley. The guest beer is always from a local brewery
