Clun Pale Ale
Hobsons Bitter
Six Bells Big Nev's Bitter 
Three Tuns Rantipole
Readers comments - Can confirm they are now open Sunday lunchtimes both for drink and for meals. Local Six Bells ales a part of their offering - Aug 2009
- Visited on a Tuesday afternoon. Despite having changed ownership in 2010, it retains its original ambience. The garden is worth a visit, but maybe at the appropriate time of year! The beer range has an emphasis on local products for which I'd award 3 stars - Feb 2011- 
5 real ales on, all from Shropshire, and cider from Tenbury, Worcestershire. Had a pint of ale from the relatively recent Clun brewery (can't remember the name of the beer!) which was excellent: 4.5/5 - Aug 2012

Crown & Anchor Vaults

The youth pub in town - with noisy decor and music. Floorboards and sawdust - there can't be many pubs like this still left. Good atmosphere. Two real ales from Monty's Brewery in Montgomery at cheap prices. Pool table. Situated on High Street. Occasional live music. Tel - 01588 638966. Visited in Dec 2005  Facebook page

Readers comments - Busy pub and is as described, including the sawdust!  2 Monty's beers plus two others I think. Good quality, verging on 4 stars - My 2010

Kings Head

Salopian Shropshire Gold
Stonehouse Station Bitter
Readers comment - A youngsters' pub and quite busy, Salopian Shropshire Gold on, 2 star. But let's not knock it, it's open and has real ale!! - May 2010
Bit disappointed with this pub. Yes, real ale on, but the Shropshire Gold was barely drinkable I'm afraid - Aug 2012

Readers comment - Nice pub with a bar room and a dining room. Goldings BB a very tasty pint 4/5. Food is good value and not bad at all. Very friendly landlord (Big Nev himself!) and staff - Dec 2010 
- Always a joy to visit Bishops Castle and especially the Six Bells!! Beers on: Big Nevs, Ow Do!, Cloud Nine & the seasonal Elevenale!  Nev is pleased with his new ‘hi-tech’ brewing plant and the ales produced are as good as ever! Sampled  Elevenale! and Ow Do! and I score 3.5 out of 5 - Feb 2011
