Billed as the 100th pub in Shrewsbury when this estate pub was built by the then Banks’s Brewery, opening in 1967. However, the Darwin theme did not originally extend to the pub’s sign, as there was some confusion between pictures of Messrs Dickens and Darwin! Happily, Darwin now takes pride of place. After nearly 50 years in the hands of Banks’s/Marston’s, the Darwin re-opened in early December 2015.There is a Sunday Roast delivery service 12 – 4. Afternoon tea served from noon until 2.30pm, with sandwiches, scones, cream cakes and jam etc. The view from the bar window has changed due to the construction of a shop in the car park over the summer of 2016. Management change from Aug 2017. Free of tie from November 2017.
