The spirits of Sir Humphrey Kynaston and his horse Beelzebub are said to return occasionally to this ancient watering hole in deepest Shropshire; a local 'Robin Hood', he was outlawed by Henry VII and in 1493 ultimately pardoned by Henry VIII. Red leather-clad armchairs, a forest of black beams and local real ales set the charming ambience, while the menu’s broad range of pub dishes pleases all tastes and appetites. Starters range from black pudding Scotch egg with mixed salad to button mushroom and blue cheese crumble with crusty bread. Typical main courses are herby lamb cobbler with mixed greens; crispy chicken burger topped with pulled pork and mozzarella; and grilled salmon with beetroot risotto, asparagus and crisp leeks. Vegetarians are also well catered for.
