Aqualung . left this review about Three Fishes

I arrived here on a Friday afternoon and immediately realised that I had been here before around 20 years ago. It's an old pub near one of Shrewsbury's prominent churches. The old sign outside reveals that it was once a Whitbread house but according to What Pub is now owned by the Ei group.
Inside it's a single Olde Worlde room with the bar on the left and initially a carpet then stone flagged floors.
The bar has six hand pumps which had one unused, M&B Mild, Ludlow Best, Stonehouse Cambrian Gold, Taylor's Landlord and Salopian Golden Thread. Unfortunately I couldn't see the Salopian clip properly so read it as Shropshire Gold and went for the Landlord (£3.60) which was in good nick but I'm sure inferior to the Golden Thread.
This is a pleasant enough old pub but I suspect that in the past it's been somewhat ruined by Whitbread.

This is a good looking half timbered 16th century building from the outside and an equally good looking pub from the inside with its low beamed ceiling, stone flagged floor and white washed beamed walls. Plenty of wooden seating around the single room and I think I counted six ale pumps on the bar with five beers on. These were Timothy Taylor Landlord, Cambrian Gold, Salopian Golden Thread, Ludlow Best and a decent Highgate M&B Mild.
No TV’s , no obtrusive soundtrack, just a very good pub with a good ale selection.

This pub apparently dates from the late 15th century, which I can well believe. What's not so old is the Whitbread's national brewery conglomerate trademark deer's head logo standing sentinel over the hanging sign which bears the name of Three Fishes - surely the plural of Fish is...errr...Fish?
Anyway, this is a fine old lovely pub and one of the most famous in the town, worthy of inclusion on any crawl or even for an extended stay, where I enjoyed my half of Ludlow Best.
