Single room open plan pub that was once the Salopian Brewery Tap , the bar is to the right of the entrance and partially obscured by a large pillar , a couple of large TVs showing the football , at the back of the room there are lovely views over the Severn towards the Showground .
3 of the 4 handpulls in use with Wye Valley HPA and 2 from Salopian , Voodoo and a cracking Oracle , service was friendly as were the locals , worth it if in the area .

Yep. I found this pub to be acceptable. Yep. Good views from the beer terrace.

10-15 minutes out of town, up a bit of an incline and does seem for the last couple of minutes like you’re not going to get to a pub at all. Internally it’s not that great, felt slapped around and knocked through with little care. Two dart boards and pool table spotted. However the rear patio terrace has lovely views over the Severn Valley vista, which made for a pleasant 20 minutes. This one is owned by Salopian brewery though oddly only two of their ales were on, plus a guest from Blackwater. However, both Salopian ales were in excellent condition, best beers of the day by a stretch. Service at the bar was a bit perfunctory, could do better there. Hard to sum up; the beer quality was outstanding but it didn’t really feel like the sort of place I’d make the effort to schlep to outside of that. Needs more creature comforts and a better welcome to match the ale.

This pub is a bit of a walk from the centre of town but is well worth it to sample on of the Salopian ales available, which totalled four on our visit. Nothing outstanding inside this pub but what it may lack in furnishings it more than makes up with it's friendly locals. Unusually there are two dartboards in this pub.

The ales we tried were in very good condition.

This place was bouncing when I visited with football on the telly, plus it was dominoes night. A proper local, I suspect I was the only person in the pub that wasn't from the immediate area. Very friendly though. Has four handpumps but only three were on. I don't know if this is actually a Salopian pub but the beers were Salopian Shropshire Gold, Golden Thread and Oracle. Had a pint of the Oracle which was excellent. It's a nice looking pub in the middle of a terrace, but it was so busy that it was difficult to see much of the inside. It's a very good pub.
