About the Pub

This black and white former coaching inn features an inglenook fireplace, beamed ceiling and bay windows in the bar. This is a comfortable room which was refurbished in 2014. There's another small room to the rear of the pub, that is used as a games room. The serving area is triangular-shaped which is fairly unusual. Three handpulls dispense beers from local and regional breweries, usually with a real cider as well.

There is keen emphasis on music, particularly at weekends when live bands are often in evidence, though the jukebox is usually active the rest of the time. Barbecues are often held on the large beer garden decking in the summer. In its time it has been owned by the Wrekin Brewery of Wellington and was part of the large local estate of the Shrewsbury & Wem Brewery.

Recently initiated happy hour prices on Real Ales in the 'Monday Club' (12-6pm).

Historic Interest

The black & white building with the triangular frontage opposite used to be a pub called the Old Bell up until 1910. This used to be the home of the Frankwell Brewery, which was producing up to 200 barrels of beer a week in the 1880s.
