Near the medieval church, this stylishly modernised whitewashed village pub is a focal point for all things Welsh Marches, with beers from nearby Oswestry’s Stonehouse brewery amongst the ales stocked, meats from the village’s Moor Farm or Shrewsbury’s renowned market, and cheeses from a Cheshire supplier. In addition to the interesting sandwich menu, the tempting fare might include a sharing platter (seafood or deli); a starter of chicken and duck liver pâté, spiced plum chutney and toasted sourdough; followed by pan-fried sea bass fillet, with warm salad of butter beans, chorizo and tomatoes; or slow-roasted shoulder of lamb with leek and roasted garlic mash.
