Pub reopened after refurbishment August 2013
Update May 2012 - Under New Management

Sold as part of the Earl of Shrewsbury’s estate in 1917, The Shrew as it was then known was lot number 68, consisting of 21 acres, 2 roads and 26 perches. The pub was then let to a West Cheshire brewery for an annual rent of just £90. Highwaymen operated along this road, the old main route from Chester to Manchester, and on the 6th April 1796, Thomas Brown and James Price tied up and robbed a fifteen-year-old mail-boy. He freed himself and ran to the tollgate opposite the Shrewsbury Arms. The robbers were caught in Birmingham and brought back to Mickle Trafford where they were hung in Gibbets Field. Today, the Shrewsbury Arms is a picturesque pub, which has been carefully restored to what the traditional pub used to be. Genuine oak beams, flagstone floors and attractive rugs, the cosy glow of a real log fire and English Cask Ales. Generous platefuls of delicious, home-cooked food complimented by old-fashioned service and values and the attentiveness that will take you back to days when hospitality really meant something.

The food menu is the standard type bar menu for a large pub. Coffee is nice, service is fast.
