The Boyne Arms (as seen in their promotional literature)

A pub that I just bumped into. Burwarton is situated on the eastern side of the Brown Clee Hill which makes for a fairly easy afternoon stroll with fine views had from the summit across Shropshire and Worcestershire. We spotted the Malverns and noticed the Met Office rainfall radar and Air Traffic Control radar on the nearby Titterstone Clee Hill.

The pub itself is on the B4364 between Ludlow and Bridgnorth in the small village of Burwarton. I took one of their promotional leaflets and included the picture of the pub on it below as my photograph really didn't do it justice. The pub's an impressive Georgian building with a very comfortable interior which felt like a very large living room. The bar staff were friendly and chatty, as were the locals gathered around the bar enjoying a Sunday afternoon drink. There was also seating outside too though it was a little too cold while we were there to venture outside.

They've a main bar area with a couple of very well-kept real ales on offer (from the local Wood's brewery while we were there). To the left there's another quieter room which looked like a dining room. Generous portions of tasty home-made food is available at lunchtimes and during the evenings.
