Tris C left this review about The Nag's Head

As I can't find a Bag's Head in Shrewsbury, I'll assume that my note taking had fallen prey to the menace that is predictive texting.
This is a jettied building built in a mock mediaeval style, though is of appreciable age, dating back to 1780. The pub also claims to be haunted, but this may be a recent addition, given that the pub's adoptive cat - Indie - was killed by a dog on 13th April this year.
My half of Wye Valley HPA was fine and the pub makes for an obvious inclusion if on a crawl.

This small traditional two roomed pub is half way up (or down depending on your perspective) the Wyle Cop. The small serving bar in the front room had five hand pumps on the go providing for our visit Butty Bach and HPA from the Wye Valley Brewery, Butcombe Original, Rebellion IPA and TT Landlord. I went for the Landlord and it was in good nick and the back room was a good spot to enjoy it. Unfortunately due to the inclement weather, did not get a chance to check out the beer garden.

Not been in this small, traditional, two-room, alehouse-style pub for over ten years, but not much has changed from what I recall (describing it at that time in the following way: "Perhaps I should have tried the beer garden, but the wood-panelled front bar seemed a bit bare and lacking in atmosphere"). Five real ales available on handpumps, including the Wye Valley HPA (£1.65, half) on this visit.
