GUEST,Dave Hunt BS: Great British Pubs (62* d) RE: BS: Great British Pubs 07 May 02


My local is one of the best pubs EVER! The Coalbrookdale Inn, Coalbrookdale, Nr. Ironbridge, Shropshire Winner of the CAMRA [Campaign for Real Ale] National Pub of the Year in 95 and runner up in 96. Mike, our wonderful landlord has had over TWO THOUSAND different beers on in the ten years he has been there....all premium beers too..i.e all over 4%. Always seven beers on hand pumps, plus lagers, Stouts, Draught traditional Cider etc Brilliant food [Mike was a chef on cruise liners for years]lunchtime specialising in hot baguettes eg Pork and Stuffing...known to everyone as Stork and Puffin! ..Pear and Stilton..SpicyLamb [lots of chili sauce] Then in the evenings food is only available from 6 - 8 which means that by 9 the whole place is available to drinkers! I run a monthly music session there (3rd Sunday evenings) and we have lots of other 'events' eg St. Beards Night in Jan, Titanic Night in April, and lots of other silly events. The pub is probably a hundred feet above the River Severn, butwith the aid if some faked pics, Mike managed to convince lots of people that it had originally been a lifeboat Station! No Juke box, no piped music, no gaming machines.....a proper pub....well worth a visit...if you are in the area mail me at daverhunt@aol . com and I'll meet you there for a jar. They do have a website at www.coalbrookdale-inn.com Check it out!
