One main room with a fair sized outside area which was being well used. Various real ale pumps, this strongest of which was 4.5% ABV. There also were ciders on offer which were stronger.

Visited this pub a few weeks ago with my work friend. Pub was recommended from people who had visited Shrewsbury in the past. Got the feeling from the older female staff that if you don't come from Shrewsbury or of the young well to do young person you are not made to welcome. Ordered two glasses wine which was overpriced and served by a blond woman with a sour face on her. The impression I got was if you are not a local or a member of the Shrewsbury elite (words I use lightly) you would be advised to spend your money in some other bar in Shrewsbury.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Admiral Benbow

Packed to the rafters during the Rugby World Cup final, so it was difficult to take in the undoubted merits of this side-street pub. Two-part bar area supplemented by a rear room and sizeable side / rear patio beer garden. Lots of real ales and ciders on offer from a variety of handpumps, including Shropshire Sawn Off (£3.50).
