Two bar pub, the lounge has an historically important interior while the bar is rather more plain but comfortableand is equipped with dart board and jukebox, with loads of trophies above the door. Plenty of friendly local trade. Not a lot to add to Aqualung’s description and I didn’t see the entrance to the lounge either. Friday night looks like ladies darts night. Six pulls offering a couple from Salopian, plus Wye Valley, Fixed Wheel and two Yorkshire beers from Kelham Island and Goose Eye.

This is one of three neighbouring pubs in what is a suburb of Shrewsbury. Although it is suburban it isn't that far from the Rail & Bus Stations.
It has two completely separate bars as noted below and I found myself in the back Public Bar. To be honest I didn't even see the entrance to the larger bar!
This is a small room with a red tiled floor and limited furnishings. The bar counter is to the left at the end. There is a usable and prominent dart board and an old fashioned CD juke box. There was a TV above the bar showing Tipping Point followed by the Chase, a welcome change from the Sky Sports "News".
The bar had six hand pumps all clipped. They had Salopian Oracle & Shropshire Gold, Wye Valley HPA & Butty Bach, Ossett Evolution and Abbeydale Doctor Morton's Duck Baffler. I went for the Oracle (£3.30) which was in good nick.
I thought this was a decent enough place but let down by a beer choice consisting of just 4.0-4.5% bitters. Maybe that's all that the locals like. It's GBG 2018 listed.

No changes here , still a very good pub , friendly staff , chatty regulars and good beer , with the virtually next door Royal Oak now being vastly improved it makes a good double header .
