|First ever visit - top pub. Like the public bar at the front & the snug would be great for a small group of friends. The beer was faultless as well.|

|Came in here after my visit to the Admiral Benbow next door. Nice interior with wooden beams and a traditional tap room. I can't remember the name of the ale as at this point I was rather intoxicated. I had been supping Black Bush Irish Whiskey in the previous place.|
However, I do remember eating some handcut chips which were lovely. It did slightly help soak up some of the latter mentioned whiskey!
I wish I had looked in to the other rooms.

|A street corner pub a little way of the main thoroughfare that means it probably gets something less in the way of passing trade than many nearby establishments, but is well worth seeking out.|
The main bar at the front has much wood panelling on the walls, as well as matching woodwork around the bar. Elsewhere the wall is exposed brick, and there are red quarry tiles on the floor. Dotted around the walls were various comedy sketches relating to Guinness that were presumably used as adverts at some point. At one end was a brick chimney with a log fire and off to the other side is a hexagonal snug area made with more wood panelling.
To the rear is another smaller bar counter but this area looks to be predominantly used for dining. It looked to be an attractive, cosy spot and had we been staying another night in Shrewsbury I would have tried it for something to eat. I didnít check the menu but did notice a couple of boards that were advertising Sunday Roasts and Thursday Fish nights.
Beers on tap were Purple Moose Snowdonia Ale, Stonehouse Station Bitter, Shropshire Gold and Oracle from Salopian and Three Tuns XXX. Note that these beers on split between the front and rear bars, although a board at the end of the bar lists them all. Ciders were Thatcherís Gold and Cheddar valley.

|To follow on from my previous view - the couple of other beers were Stonehouse Sunlander & Phoenix Arizona. So not a bad selection in all.|

|The Coach & Horses benefits from being just up the road from the excellent Admiral Benbow. It was much quieter than it's close neighbour, which reflected its inferior ale quality and selection. Nevertheless, it's still worth a try. There are a couple of small drinking areas which are very pleasant and the barmaid was friendly. Beers on were Salopian Oracle & Shropshire Gold, Slaters Top Totty and I believe a couple of others. Thatchers Cheddar Valley was the cider.|
