Welcome to The Old Hand & Diamond Inn.

A family-run 17th century border inn that has provided refreshments and accommodation for travellers for hundreds of years. Situated in beautiful open countryside on the Powys/Shropshire border, The Old Hand & Diamond makes an excellent central base to visit all the delights of Shropshire’s county town, Shrewsbury.

This stunning, dog-friendly country pub also offers a children’s play area, a beer garden with plenty of outside seating on our sunny patio and a large car park. The interior of the inn has a wealth of exposed beams, whilst the bar has an inglenook fireplace and a large open fire which is lit during the winter months. Open all day, we serve a large range of beers and pride ourselves on offering at least three traditional ales, often including selection that are brewed locally.

Bar & Restaurant

Our bar and restaurant menu is available daily from Monday to Thursday 12.00pm to 2.00pm and 6.00pm to 9.30pm, and Friday to Sunday we serve all day. The bar menu is changed regularly, but includes all the traditional favourites. If you are after something a little different, we always offer a selection of specials.

Our 100 seat restaurant enjoys an enviable reputation built up over many years. We offer a varied menu with most of our produce locally sourced from neighbouring farms.

Game from the local estate is popular during winter months and can be enjoyed with a glass of wine from our extensive wine menu. Our Sunday Carvery is excellent value and so popular that we now offer it every lunch time.
