Try January (and February)!

In January, it is dark and can be a depressing time of the year for some people, so we like to give a little extra back!  Our Try January promotion rewards customers by giving you a discount in February for as many days as you buy a drink in January.  For example, if you visit us on 12 days in January, you will get a discount of 20% off your first drink on 12 days in February.  If you manage to get 27 visits in January, we will give you the 28th free, so that you can get a discount on every day in February!

If you haven’t already got one, get a discount card at the bar soon.


We hope you enjoy the results of our January refurb.  The floor and bar in the front room have been sanded back and re-laquered, the walls have been repainted and wrought iron handrails fitted adjacent to the front steps.  This should make it easier, not only for the benefit of our older customers, but for everyone in icy weather.


We’re working on the entertainment programme for 2019.  The general pattern is:-

Live music on the first Saturday of each month, on each Thursday, except the penultimate one each month.  This takes the form of Shropshire’s longest-running Open Mic Night on the last Thursday of each month;

Comedy Club on the second Tuesday of each month (except August), with extra shows in the early Summer, as top comedians bring their “Edinburgh Festival Preview Shows” to us.  See our Comedy Club page;

Quiz Night on the last Sunday of each month.  The quiz costs £1 per person to enter in teams of upto five people.  Unlike some pubs, we do not require you to take your prizes in drinks – we give you the cash!  Occasionally, our quizzes are organised for the benefit of a particular charity, in which case half the cash goes direct to the charity;

Telford Acoustic Club meets from 8.30p.m. in the back room on most Wednesdays to play and sing.
