The Railwaymans Arms, Bridgnorth

The Railwayman's Arms is a lovely little station bar entered off the platform at the Severn Valley Railway station. It was packed on our early Sunday evening visit. Although, a train had just arrived and emptied out. There were also quite a few who had clearly missed a few trains, or arrived on the first of the day and were still there. This was easily the busiest pub we had been to during the day and we had to sit outside with our plastic glasses (-1 for that). Ales were Hobson's Best, Champion Mild & Town Crier, Batham's Best Bitter, Bewdley Worcestershire Way, Worcestershire Sway & Station Porter, Exmoor Gold & St Austell Trelawney. The real cider was Woodhall's Whubarb, a new one for me. A 7/10 from me, only spoiled by the plastic glasses and drunken crowds.

Hollyhead Inn, Bridgnorth

After a steep walk down the hill towards the station, our penultimate stop was the George. This was a pub that exceeded my expectations. It had a nice airy feel to it, with friendly locals and nice staff. There was plenty of interest to admire around the walls and a space was reserved in one corner for a band. The ale choice was good - Hobson's Town Crier, Wye Valley HPA, Salopian Divine Comedy, Ludlow Stairway & Wood's Born & Bred. One of Bridgnorth's better pubs.

The Old Castle, Bridgnorth

Another of the current Bridgnorth pubs in the Good Beer Guide. But, this one was disappointing. Two girls were working behind the bar. But, one wasn't doing much and we had to wait a while before being served. The bar area is small, especially with people crowded around the TV for the Cup Final. There is also a dining area, which was unused on our visit. At the rear, is a conservatory with a pool table. Beyond that is a garden with tables overlooking a nice view. Ales do not change. They are Wye Valley HPA & Butty Bach, Hobson's Town Crier and Sharp's Doom Bar.
