Short and Sweet; you'll know when you walk in this place is a wholesome and welcoming charismatic pub. Charm, great staff and excellent services.

The Shrewsbury Arms is a lovely old building with stained glass windows, an excellent beer garden and car park. The decor is in questionable taste - far too fussy, clashing and over patterned for our taste.
We went early at lunchtime which we normally do.The servicce was excellent and the pub quiet as it was early. The big televisions promise a night that would not suit us and I get the impression that the later night clientele may not be to everyones taste.
The food was average, quite good and well cooked but not special.

Great pub with friendly bar staff. Food is good quality and excellent value for money. Lively beer garden which is great fun in the Summer. Nice little snug areas if you fancy cosy chats. Quiz night on a Monday is well organised and a good laugh. A very traditional pub and a must if you are ever in Oxton. I don't understand the negative comment as I have not noticed a big shift in the clientele.

Fantastic welcome every time from Ronnie and Steph the managers and the rest of the staff.
Great family atmosphere, good value food and drink. Really cannot understand a few comments on here. Definitely the best pub in area. We've brought family, friends and work colleagues here and always had great service.
Check it out - well worth a visit - I'll even put my name on the review!!
