Nice enough Joules pub split into 2 rooms and a courtyard out back. A total of 9 handpulls spread over two bars with 6 on one side and 3 on the other. Usual Joules beers but a seasonal ale on called No./37. Not bad but not great.

Nicely laid out Joule's pub tucked away from the main shopping area, but still fairly centrally located in Bridgnorth's high town. There are several different drinking areas with 2 main rooms, each sub-divided, connected with a courtyard. Doors from the one room were opened up to incorporate the outdoor courtyard, making this a very pleasant spot for a drink in warmer months.

3 barmaids were available to serve us. Although one appeared to be hiding away from public view due to a recent facial injury sustained in the pub! The regular Joule's beers were all on - Pale Ale, Pure Blonde & Slumbering Monk, in addition to a guest beer called Beer Tonic. Thatcher's Cheddar Valley cider was on another handpull.

I find most Joule's pubs have nice and cosy interiors, with plenty of traditional features. This one is no exception. If I had one criticism, it would be that I've yet to find one of their beers that I really enjoy. However, this is certainly one of Bridgnorth's better boozers.

Now a Joule's pub with an excellent choice of beers. Pure Blonde, Slumbering Monk and Pale Ale are the regulars with the seasonal Lakota and Malvern Gold as a guest. Well worth a visit.
