Me outside the Kings Arms in April 2000

A great old coaching inn in the SE corner of the fine rural county of Shropshire on the road that heads west out to Ludlow. The Kings Arms has been very nicely refurbished and am pleased to see is also now the Hobsons brewery tap, being just a short distance from this great national award winning Shropshire brewery. It seems very apt that it has become the brewery tap as there's a plaque on the wall that states that it received the first ever delivery of Hobsons beer way back in 1993. Having visited the pub every few years since then (well 1995) I'm pleased to say that the pub is definitely once again thriving and is a great stop off point both for ale, food, atmosphere and accommodation. The interior has been very tastefully decorated with several different bar areas to choose from. I seem to pass through Cleobury and visit here every two or three years for lunch with a pint and have never been disappointed. The staff were very friendly and the service prompt. Great consistently good real ale from the Hobsons range is on handpump (usually the Mild, Best Bitter and Town Crier) with a guest available too.

Once had an interesting chat with one of the friendly locals who used to work in the old quarries on the nearby Clee Hill, and then in the mines under the River Severnů.A great range of carefully prepared home made meals are available at lunchtimes and during the evening. They open at 10am and in the run up to lunch offer decent cooked breakfasts though I've yet to try one!

They offer good quality accommodation at the inn in five bedrooms and you might be lucky if you stay there and catch some folk music too which they have every so often. Great place to go walking too. We headed north to Neen Savage during the morning and saw Dippers, Red Legged Partridges and a tiny bat flitting around and climbing up a tree trunk. After an excellent lunch at the Kings Arms we wandered along the footpaths around Mawley Hall during the afternoon. Very pleasant English countryside. They've some suggested walks too on an information board just down the road from the pub which you might like to try.
