Castle Hotel

Joules Pub. Transformed inside since our last visit - now the bar is in the middle with a room on either side. Popular local with nice wooden panelling and a log burning stove. Friendly service and there are three Joules beers on offer - they were all tasty. Food served including coffee. Quiz nights. Situated right in the middle of Wem at 14 High Street. Tel - 01939 232430.

Joules Calcutta 1757 
Joules Slumbering Monk
Joules Blonde 
Readers comments - Visited  on a Friday night. It was busy, mainly youngsters who seemed to be attracted by the very loud music. The pub is now owned by Joules Brewery of Market Drayton, which was reflected in the two beers that were on. They were Joules Pale and Double Hop. They were well presented, and I’d rate them as 3.5 stars - Nov 2010

Drayton Gate

The pub used to be called the Albion Inn and it's only open from Thurs to Saturday, the rest of the time it's for private functions only. We've not visited the pub since it changed its name, last time we were there it was a comfortable local. Food served. A single real ale. Car park. Beer garden. New dining room overlooking the front. Situated at the end of Aston Street so it's very handy for the railway station. Tel - 01939 233933. Visited Apr 2008

Readers comments - More new owners, and a new name too - 2014 
New landladies since March 2011. Pub is now back to its former glory, with home made food served daily, Sunday lunches served from 12 and it's best to make a reservation. Live music every weekend, Great pub and fantastic atmosphere - Oct 2011
      

Fox Inn

Formerly a Burtonwood pub, and spruced up in 2004 - with a friendly welcome. It must have the tallest bar in Shropshire, and the highest stools. Anyway, the beer is well kept and tasty. There always used to be two local ales on offer, but no longer. Collection of formula 1 pictures. Car park. Beer garden at the back. Darts. Occasional live music. Located at the west end of High Street. Visited Nov 2014
Old Golden Hen
Old Speckled Hen
Ruddles
Readers comments - Just for info, the bar was newly built but replaced to its original height (circa 1956) hence the high stools!! 
Went to the Fox, it was warm and friendly and the beer was fine. Decor makes the place feel like a chain pub, but the nice lady working behind bar made me and my family feel very welcome. Locals were decent sorts. I'll be back! - Jul 2008
Visited on a Friday night.  The pub is on the edge of Wem’s “circuit”, thus it is very much a busy local with a good mix of clientele. And it is now one of two free houses in the town. Chatty and knowledgeable landlord who confirmed that his range of 3 beers changed frequently. On the night, the three beers were from the Greene King stable. My Ruddles was a 3.5 star - Nov 10
  

Hawkestone Arms

Popular local and a friendly welcome. Music can be a bit loud. The Sharps Doombar was a bit ordinary, it's surprising how a beer such as this became so popular - anyway just 3 stars for the Doombar. Darts and pool table. Wood burner. Nice old black and white photo of the pub in the bar. Two large screen tellies. Outside drinking area at the side and just about enough car parking for 3 cars at the front. Situated on the edge of town on New Street. Tel - 01939 232927. Visited Nov 2014
Sharps Doombar
Youngs Bitter   
Readers comments - The entertainment varies from solos, motown to bands, drag queen, karaoke etc .The Tetley's is well kept - possibly the perfect pint of Tetley. Has a good variety of guest beers. Darts and dominoes. Live sky sports coverage. Wood burner. Nice old black and white photo of the pub in the bar - Jul 2009
    

Old Post Office

Called the Old Post Office because this used to be Wem's Post Office before it moved inside the local supermarket. Now with 3 real ales - a lot of customers seem to be the younger generation drinking lager. Food served. There is an outside yard with tables at the Free Wi-Fi. Occasional live music. Situated at 25 High Street. Tel - 01939 768098. Visited Nov 2014  Pub website

Salopian Shropshire Gold  
Readers comments - Under new ownership, this pub has been totally refurbished into a modern comfortable pub with welcoming and friendly staff, will be serving food, caters for functions of any kind and has a following of regulars who drink the four real ales on offer - Nov 2010
Visited on a Friday night and enjoyed the experience. It was busy, with a mix of clientele.  The pub is now a free house, which is shown by the range of 3 beers on. The very welcoming landlady informed us that Salopian Shropshire Gold is currently her house beer, with the other two being guests from local breweries. I went for my benchmark Stonehouse Station Bitter which I rated as 3 star - Nov 2010  
Local ales on offer - Shropshire Gold from Shrewsbury, Rowton Bitter from Rowton village near to Ellerdine & Spitting Feathers Brewery, and real cloudy cider - Dec 2010
