The Stiperstones Inn

Lara & Phil would like to welcome you to The Stiperstones Inn, where we offer refreshments, food and self catering accommodation in the heart of the beautiful South Shropshire Hills, a recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

We serve food from 12.00pm - 9.00pm daily.
Our licensing hours are now Sunday - Thursday 11.30am - 12am, Friday - Saturday 11.30 am - 2am.

The Inn is in a great location for walking or cycling the Stiperstones ridge, the Long Mynd and surrounding countryside, or for just chilling out in beautiful surroundings with a good book.

Since the start of the pandemic, the Inn no longer offers bed and breakfast, however we do have three self catering holiday cottage to let within the village of Stiperstones.

Check them out here!

Originally built in the 1750’s as two cottages and a smithy, the building was converted to a public house in the mid 1800’s. In the bar areas much of the original character of the building remains with exposed beams, small cosy rooms, and open fires.  In the dining rooms and public bar we have been restoring the building, exposing some of the stone walls and beams, opening up old fireplaces, and creating a space of traditional decor with a contemporary twist. (Don’t worry the ballroom mirror remains and the Red Stag still has pride of place).

The Inn is a traditional free-house pub, which has been in our family for 50 years, and has a public bar, lounge bar, newly designed beer garden and two dining rooms. Function space is available for small parties (we can also offer conference facilities and equipment on a day and half day basis).  

We now offer three self catering properties within in the village. The Old Chapel, a stunningly converted methodist chapel which sleeps up to six.  The Hayloft, a converted cowshed and hay barn directly opposite the Inn, which sleeps two and a twin unit chalet located behind the Inn which sleeps four. As a member of
Brit Stops we’re always happy to welcome motorhomes and camper vans for those who simply want to stay overnight.

We offer morning coffee, afternoon tea, and real ale. Between 12:00pm and 8:30pm we serve a full menu with over 30 main courses, including: vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and dairy free options. Served in either of our two dining rooms, beer garden, or by one of the roaring log fires in the lounge and bar areas. For larger parties, or if you are visiting during peak hours we do recommend booking a table, please call us on 01743 791327.

“If it’s friendly service with a smile you’re after then head to The Stiperstones Inn. It’s like a big hug from a long-lost friend” Shropshire Star

The Lounge Bar

Featuring a roaring log fire in winter, and offering a cool shaded space in the summer. An ideal place to relax and unwind, but don't be surprised if you find yourself in the middle of a room-wide conversation, this is a natural space for meeting old friends and making new ones.

The Public Bar

The newly designed and refurbished bar (2020) has always been a favourite space for wet walkers and hikers, to dry off by a roaring fire, after walking the Stiperstones hills or the Shropshire Way. It is an even more relaxed area, equipped with HD television, ideal for drinks and light meals. Dogs are welcome within the bar area, but on a lead and not on the furniture please.

Food is served in both the lounge and the bar but table reservations cannot be made for these rooms, should you wish to book we do have two dining rooms where this is possible.

With spirits from £2.20,  Carling at £3.60 and local bitters also at £3.60, our prices are difficult to beat!

The Dining Rooms

The Inn has two dining rooms.The first of which is a cosy snug which can comfortably seat fourteen people.

The second is a larger more formal dining space which can comfortably accommodate a further 26 people. Bookings are recommended Friday - Sunday and throughout the week for both smaller and larger parties. A high chair is available upon request. Please order food at the bar.

Disabled access to the dining room is via the beer garden path, at the rear of the Inn, accessed from the car park.
