Dolphin Inn R.I.P

I learned today that one of the best pubs in Shrewsbury has closed it’s doors for the last time. It was a free house and was always a friendly place to visit and had a variety of good local ales and even had it’s own micro brewery. When I first started going in there I recall it had loads of cats roaming around and was more like a living room. Eventually it got sold when the landlord moved on and was taken over but always continued its friendly environment. Half the excitement of a visit would be to see the new “guest” beer. Normally an ale from the excellent Rowton Brewery or Wye Valley Brewery. A highlight was when they had Brew Dog Punk I.P.A on draft.

    A tragic loss. I remember walking in there for the first time and as I went through the door a large sign stating No Lager Sold Here greeted me. I knew I was in for a good couple of nights during my stay!

    I never made it in.
    Paolo and I kept talking about meeting up there but we always would end up int he Wrekin Tap instead.
