This is a lovely no frills village pub, with quarry tiled floor and a wooden bar with fielded panels. With eight hand pumps it must be a concern as to whether there is sufficient throughput to maintain that many beers in good enough condition, especially outside the tourist season. I went for the Hobsons Mild, which wasn't in very good condition: rather limp and lifeless. The same thing happened when I had the same beer in Bridgnorth the next day, so either there's a problem with this beer or people in Shropshire are not drinking as much MILD as they should. This small quibble apart, I liked it here, though as I was the first customer of the day after the pub opened at four I can't say anything about atmosphere. The open fire was very welcome and I will certainly be back here next time I'm in Ironbridge.

Seeked out because of its 2017 entry in the GBG. A lovely locals pub that make visitors welcome.

Three rooms, two coal fires, 5-6 real ales, rolls and chips £3.

Everything that I look for in a pub.

A nice Georgian building that has been used as a pub since 1834, it is currently owned by Punch Taverns but the landlord informed me that he was free of tie so he can buy his real ales from anywhere just like a privately owned free house. The pub has two small rooms, an L shaped public bar on the left and a dining lounge on the right. Once you have scaled the two dozen or so steps from the street up to the front door you will enter the public bar which has a small square bar counter in the middle of the room, red fabric upholstered bench seats, a cast iron fire place at the back of the room with a flat screen TV on the wall in the back left corner. The lounge is entered by a door at the end of a short corridor which runs behind the bar, this room has an empty fire place at the back with several tables laid out for dining. The décor throughout the pub is traditional with various paintings and old photos on the walls. Worth a mention is the large stained glass partition between the bar and lounge. The pub is also a B&B with at least three rooms I believe.

Regular ales are Enville Ale, Hobsons Town Crier and Ironbridge Foundry Gold with three changing guest beers usually from Shropshire or neighbouring counties. On this visit they were Wye Valley Hereford Pale Ale, Three Tuns XXX and Clerics Cure. I tried the Foundry Gold and Clerics Cure which were both well kept (GBG 2010).

This is a great traditional pub with a brilliant selection of real ales, I was with a couple of friends on this occasion and despite not visiting the pub before we were warmly welcomed by the landlord and the general atmosphere was friendly. Note the warnings about the car park in the reviews bellow, it is tiny and awkward, but don’t let this put you off as it is one of the best pubs in the Ironbridge Gorge area and Telford as a whole.
