The Black Boy  

This pub is in a really nice place, on a hill connecting the "high" and "low" towns. Its right in the middle of a residential area, and has a really good "house" feel, but wheelchair users might have some trouble due to how small it is. There are two rooms around one bar, and also a back yard with great views of the river Severn.

There is a dart board and a fruit machine that keeps on giving it seems. The landlord is (or was) the youngest in Shropshire, at 25 years, and there's always a warm welcome. The clientele is nice, never any rowdiness, average age 40 I suppose, but popular with young, old, and lager drinkers alike. Jazz festival venue, a clue to the warmth of this great pub, also including a real fire when it gets cold.

The real ale is very well kept. The beer was always pulled properly, no need to ask for top-ups. As a relative real ale novice I have to say the beer always tastes good and rich.

No food here I'm afraid but the warmth of the fire and clientele, and the general good quality of the beer on offer makes up for it.

The worst is that you have to walk up the hill again if you live in High town. (Review: Max Worrall, 2004)
