I love this pub. It’s very cheap, the service is friendly and the music is amazing. Jenka’s disco on a Saturday is very good. Fantastic location, just around the corner from the station.

Called in this scruffy pub over the bank holiday weekend, one of the worst pubs i have ever been in , all the customers seemed to be drunk, and shouting and swearing loudly, must be where the dregs of shrewsbury drink.

A Shrewsbury local pub with the best 90s music ever!! :) cosy atmosphere with a good vibe, embodied in an old, forgotten, near-the-station pub.
