With over 650 to choose from and hundreds visited, the task of selecting a representative number of historic pubs in Shropshire was far from easy, especially since this perfect embodiment of an English county has so many unique establishments worthy of mention. The search to find the choicest pubs took the author through all of the county’s towns and villages, along its rivers, over the rugged hills and along Shropshire’s lost and forgotten highways and byways. There were certainly more pubs found that could be put into this book, but sixty of the best were selected as a fair choice. All the pubs represent a particular style, type, or age of establishment and are dispersed throughout the whole county, but above all, they are of the highest standard. Included here are establishments that capture the essence of the wayside inn, the local, riverside mug house, railway and canal pub as well as the increasingly brewery tap house. Suffice it to say the pubs featured in this book are among the best in Shropshire and all certainly have a history and perhaps a tale of the unusual or even the supernatural. They are whole-heartedly recommended to anyone in search of good beer, a warm welcome and a historical setting.
