I was staying at the Old Rectory and popped here for a quick dinner. The staff were lovely and walking in alone I felt very welcome. I had a delicious steak for dinner and would definitely recommend eating here.

What's not to love about this place? Lovely local pub, stylish with a traditional feel. Nice beer garden, fab food, great value, excellent staff and the friendliest Landlady who always makes you feel welcome (even if you're not a local Wemian). Best pub in Wem.

Good size meals, all cooked fresh and pretty cheap. It seems to be more of a drinkers pub than a dining out place as the small eating area is very plain and tired. Great place for a good filling meal.
