About the employer

Welcome to The Shrewsbury Arms. The building, on the edge of the village of Albrighton, in Wolverhampton has stood proud for many years, opposite the beautiful St Mary Magdelene church. Having been the welcoming watering hole for many a local over the years, the pub closed its doors back in 2009, looking somewhat tired and in need of modernisation.

The ‘Shrew’ as it was once affectionately known, has undergone major works, both inside and out and with a warm and cosy feel from the minute you step inside this amazing building, you know you are in for a treat.
