Went here on Sunday to watch the football. Had "several" pints of wonderful real ale and sat and watched the premiership game. Lovely friendly place for a visitor to Shrewsbury. Spurs won and the sun was shining. 😎

Great friendly, relaxed bar. Very good selection of CAMRA ales. Sports news tv in bar. Opportunity to have some traditional rolls to soak up the ale.
