In an elevated position off a quiet square, The Castle’s beer garden offers panoramic views over Shropshire countryside. This is one option for customers at this imposing stone-built inn dating from 1719. The Castle is a veritable haven of hospitality, warmed by three log fires in the cooler months. Three bars serve an excellent choice of real ales such as Clun Pale, and a dozen wines by the glass. The oak-panelled restaurant serves plates of sustainably produced south Shropshire food. Choose from the likes of wild boar and apricot burger with Shropshire blue cheese, or pork tenderloin wrapped in smoked bacon. A beer and cider festival is hosted in early July.
