Fortunately I had done my research on this one so it didn’t come as too much of a surprise when entering this fine looking period building. Yes, this is definitely one for those that prefer their gothic Halloween decor all year round.
I guess you need to be in the mood for this one and probably on a dark evening when you have your rock head on and want to get sloshed to Led Zep IV this is probably the best pub in the world. But on a damp wet miserable afternoon in Autumn on a crawl of Shrewsburys fine establishments, this certainly wasn’t for me. Probably also not helped that I likewise went for the house Bikers Fuel Pale Ale, which was a big mistake.

A rockers pub situated opposite the attractive church and once inside you can appreciate the age of the building,there's lots of timber framing,knarled wood,real fireplaces with copper flues and irregular surfaces.The decor is gothic,rock themed with odd figures dotted about and a strange colour scheme near the bar.There are two rooms,the front having long bench seating with worn covers which you might fear will stick to you,while the rear room has some seating booths.It's quite dark and bar blockers were pertched on stolls right infront of the three handpumps which were offering on my trip Salopian Shropshire Gold,Robinson's Trooper and a house Bikers Fuel Pale Ale of unknown provenance,despite asking, and NBSS 2.
Led Zeppelin 4 was playing but not at an outrageous volume and the pub was well occupied by a shabby clientele which the PuG crawlers failed to enhance.No need to include on a crawl unless you like some decent sounds.

Just off Castle Street in the centre of town, it would be quite easy to miss this one, but it's worth stepping off the beaten track for. Set in an old building that doesn't look publike, the interior is slightly rough, with a strange smell apparent on entering: a mingled scent of unwashed dogs and bleach - I would imagine this would become less noticeable later in the day; my visit was soon after opening. On the bar were Salopian Shropshire Gold, Adnams Ghost Ship, Robinsons Trooper and Westons Old Rosie Cider. I quite liked it here despite the smell, one of my other senses being tickled by the presence of the Animals and the Sex Pistols on the sound system.
