Success for Shifnal Boozer
The local branch of the Campaign for Real Ale met at The Anvil in Shifnal to present them with the award for Town Pub of the Year 2022.
The award was voted for by the hundreds of members of the CAMRA branch who thought that the pub was just perfect all year round – with a welcoming fire burning in the winter and a spacious beer garden available in the summer. The quality of the cask ale on offer was of course noted, and the family-friendly atmosphere was highly commended by beer lovers.
The award was presented to the Anvil’s licensees, Tom and Eloise Sutton, by new Branch Chairman Paul Jones. Sam Jervis from the Lion O’Morfe in Upper Farmcote was also present to accept his pub’s award for Rural Pub of the Year 2022. The multi-award-winning Lion is described as a ‘classic country pub’, with a small bar for drinkers and an excellent restaurant for diners, welcoming to locals and visitors alike. Jervis and his team (mainly family members) rescued the pub from a 9-year closure just a few years ago and the pub continues to go from strength to strength.
