About the Pub

Comfortable unspoilt pub in the centre of the town noted for its ales and good value food. Entrance off the road is through a covered passageway and into either of two doors which lead to a medium sized but cosy bar area dominated by a large inglenook fireplace. There is also a dining area towards the front of the building with a gas log-effect open fire, but meals are served in all parts of the pub.

The pub does not have its own car park, but there is a public pay & display car park at the rear which is accessed off St Mary's Road (no charge after 6pm or on Sundays)

From the car park you enter a long neatly laid out patio / garden with an abundance of tables and benches. This enclosed area is a delightful suntrap in the summer.

Accommodation is at the rear of the garden.

Historic Interest

The present building dates from the early 17th century and is Grade II listed. The pub stands on the site of a medieval Almonry of the Priory. An almonry is the place where alms were distributed to the poor. John Joule sold the pub to Ind Coope & Allsopp of Burton on Trent which was purchased by the Wrekin Brewery of Wellington (Telford) in 1961. This became part of Greenhall Whitley. The pub was then sold to Falcon Taverns of Bishops Castle before becoming a free-house in 1995.
