A lovely little Joules run pub. The place is basically 3 areas to sit with a room to the rear which can be used for functions apparently. The bar area is to the front and here you will find 5 handpulls on the bar 4 of these dispensed Joules beers (well 2 Joules beers as Slumbering Monk and Pale were doubled). Sadly the other handpull was bare. There's not as much wood panelling as a lot of Joules pubs and there are low beams and bevelled windows. I liked it despite the rather thin beer choices.

This one wasn't on my agenda for the day but I spotted the Joule's signage and decided to give it a go. Inside it's a single room split into three areas with a bar area at the front, a middle area dominated by a huge fireplace and a rear area up a step. The ceiling is low and there are beams everywhere. I saw no signs of any TV screens.
The bar has five hand pumps which had the three regular Joule's beers and their Shropshire Hop plus Wickwar BOB as a guest. I went for the Pale (£3.00) which was in good nick.
This is an excellent addition to a town not really noted for beer and pubs.

The short closure took seven months! A very sympathetic renovation of this old world pub. Plenty of old pictures and old signs of part owners Joules Brewery. Four connecting in line rooms with the bar in the entrance room and a wood burning stove in the 2nd room. Four ales from Joules plus one guest ale. Free Wi Fi which I am using at the moment! Guest beer and one Joules beer (so far) are on fine form.
