Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Coracle

Once again, we'd saved our best pub of the day in Shropshire until last. This micropub has two rooms, front and rear, with a single unisex toilet also in the rear room.

The bar is in the front room on the left. A coracle hangs from the ceiling. A blackboard at the side of the bar lists the real ale, cider and craft beer selection. 4 real ales were Bristol Beer Factory Danger High Voltage, Beer Ink Scrawler, Salopian Golden Thread & Alter Ego Milky Joe. The real cider was Ascension Purple Haze. They also had a couple of fizzy ciders, which were Thistly Cross Scottish Fruits & Ross-on-Wye Birdbarker.

Craft beers were Verdant Allen, GlassHouse Full House & Tanizaki, Polly's Anemoia, Deya/Beak Cosmic Control, Deya We'll Take It Off the Zombies & Ridgeside Picurd & Hold Fast: Azacca.

There was a good mix of drinkers in here, including beer tickers, youngsters and generally like-minded people to ourselves. We enjoyed a good hour or so chatting in here and I have to say that the Milky Joe was a delicious beer.

We retreated to the curry house a couple of doors up, which does not serve alcohol, but suggests fetching your own from the Coracle. The fridge did stock a huge number of additional beers, mostly in cans.

Easily the best pub in Ironbridge and possibly the best I've visited in Telford so far.

What is nice about this micropub is that while it is a shop conversion (jeweller/butcher and others in its time) is housed in a period building. The serving bar is to the side as you go in and there are two former rooms that are now really one space. Coracle pictures (the little round boat) are on the walls as the place is near the last coracle maker's boatyard (i think!). It is in grey and white tiles with a wood floor. No TV or music. The service is excellent, he knows his stuff and is friendly (dog treats available as well!). There were a couple of maturer people in at our visit. Beer: A big craft and beer fridge and on draught 5 craft, 1 real cider and 4 real ales - i had the Orkney Dragonhead Stout which was very good. Loved this place - a must do.
