Tucked away from the main street is this amazing little pub serving cask ales. We always call in here and we even managed to get a seat in their fabulous little beer garden! Choice of ales was good. Staff are always friendly. Its not always open, so check when it is if you want to visit.

Possibly the cleanest pub I've been in for years. An absolute pleasure to drink in there. Spotlessly clean, good beer and good service. Will definitely return soon. Also definitely suited to the more mature drinker 😁

I had not been in this pub for years but we went on Saturday 21 December,Great set up just what i like in a traditional pub, with a glowing open fire. The beers were excellent, a good choice of traditional real ales, however, there was a marked difference in the price of my round each time I went up to the bar, £9.00 for a pint and a gin and coke, quite stiff, my mate who was with me queried his round which was found to be £4.19 over to what it should have been. these days with automated tills this should not happen, the sum was done in the barman's head at a very busy time of the day, shame really , otherwise full marks to the pub.

A brick built building slightly away from the town centre on Swan Hill this pub, which was the former Benbow Hotel, unfortunately does not open till 5.00 pm during the week. Internally it is an L shaped room with a small separate snug room as described below. A decent beer selection was available on the seven hand pumps with Ludlow Gold, Three Tuns IPA, Woods Shropshire Lad, Wye Valley HPA, Hobsons Town Crier and Salopian Hop Twister available on the ale front and Rosie Pig cider on the last pump. I went for the Salopian Hop Twister which was very good indeed. This was a very good concluding pub for me on the recent Pubs Galore crawl of Shrewsbury.
