Basic pub on busy main road, saved by the road being right next to the river and the choice & quality of the beer. Well worth a visit if you are a beer drinker.

Usually the first pub I head for when in Shrewsbury. A short walk from the station this is a good pub. It has a L-shaped interior and bar and here you will find 8 handpumps. A good selection on local ales can usually be found. Mainly high tables and chairs can make it a bit uncomfortable but that's only a minor quibble. Newspapers are usually available to read.

A real ale mecca which has won many local CAMRA awards,it's a proper boozer where thankfully the 4 Sky Sports flatscreen were on mute on my Friday morning visit.The interior is quite small with a series of high tables near the bar,and normal tables to the side.The floor is tiled ,there is a jukebox while on the bar is a glass display cabinet with pork pies and rolls.There is a large selection of Belgian beers,and a few keg fonts but the star of the show is the 8 handpumps offering on my trip Oakham Citra,Hobsons Best,Tettnanger Deutsch Ale,Turning Point Lucid Dream,Brew York APA,Dark Star APA,Salopian Golden Thread and Oracle (in superb nick).There was a good mix of styles and strengths and my guess is that Salopian and Oakham will be regular ales,meaning 5 rotating guests.Happy hour 6-8pm Sunday -Thursday.
I expect it could get lively when matches are being screened,but for me this would be route 1 for real ale when in Shrewsbury.
