Steve of N21 left this review about The Salopian Bar

Interesting place, a square roomed pub with a modern interior decor that seems to cater to all age groups and has a bit of a sports bar theme to it with its five (if I counted them correctly) flat screen teles dotted about the place.
The slightly unusual red and black interior colour scheme seems to work and despite all screens being on albeit muted they are somehow not intrusive to conversation and I found it a comfortable pub for a beer.
And that leads on to the Salopian Bar’s key selling point of it’s decent real are range that has won it several accolades from the local CAMRA branch over the years. As well as the regular house beers of Salopian Oracle and Oakham Citra, Stonehouse Brewery Station Bitter, Castle Rock Harvest Pale, Buxton Brewery Myrcia, Salopian Treasure Trove and Sessionista and a very passable Oakham Darker Days Black Ale were on for our recent visit.
This was probably the best beer range I encountered on the recent Pubs Galore crawl of Shrewsbury and as the pub is a short distance from both the Shrewsbury bus and train stations this is a must visit when in town.

A rather unprepossessing pub on the busy main road by the river, with a slightly naff red-painted and plastic interior. However it is totally exonerated by the well-kept and changing range of beers on offer. Definitely a 'must-visit' in Shrewsbury, especially being strategically located close to the bus and railway stations.

The first stop on our PuG crawl and I failed to get a drink as arriving late, our party was about to set off but it seemed fine.
The pub affords a nice view of the river with a busy road outside and is about a five-minute walk from the railway station.
