Originally built in the 1750’s as two cottages and a smithy, the building was converted to a public house in the mid 1800’s. In the bar areas much of the original character of the building remains with exposed beams, small cosy rooms, and open fires. In the dining rooms we have been restoring the building, exposing some of the stone walls and beams, opening up old fireplaces, and creating a space of traditional decor with a contemporary twist. (Don’t worry the ballroom mirror remains in place and the Red Stag still has pride of place).
Open everyday from 11:30am, the Inn is a traditional free-house pub, which has been in our family for 50 years, and has a public bar, lounge bar, beer garden, two dining rooms and two beautifully comfortable en-suite letting bedrooms. Function space is available for small parties (we can also offer conference facilities and equipment on a day and half day basis). We now have a self catering facility in the villages’ stunningly converted methodist chapel. As a member of Brit Stop we’re always happy to welcome motorhomes and camper vans for those who simply want to stay overnight.
We offer morning coffee, afternoon tea, and real ale. Between 12:00pm and 9:00pm we serve a full menu with over 30 main courses, including: vegetarian, vegan, gluten and dairy free options. Served in either of our two dining rooms or by one of the roaring log fires in the lounge and bar areas. For larger parties, or if you are visiting during peak hours we do recommend booking a table, please call us on 01743 791327.
The Stiperstones area is best known for great walks, stunning scenery and the wild growing whinberry which covers the slopes of the hills surrounding the Inn.
