Medieval town’s venerable coaching inn

At a glance

Open all year

Dog friendly

This inn was originally part of the Much Wenlock estate and its current name and heraldic shield refer to the Yorkshire Milnes-Gaskell family who acquired it in the mid-1800s. Bought by the Sheldon family 30 years ago, it continues to change with the times. The stabling has been turned into accommodation, and modifications have revealed the best of its architectural features. Ponder then, as you relax with a pint of Worcestershire Way, how many four-horse carriages were welcomed outside the bay windows before the railways came. For the hungry, the menu of classic pub dishes continues the tradition of seeing all-comers happily refreshed and on their way.
