The Kings Arms in Church Stretton is a historic pub of some note. It dates back to 1593 and is one of the oldest pubs in the area. It has a cosy interior with original beams and a log burner to warm yourself by on colder days. Outside there's a patio and a pretty garden area if the sun is shining. You can find the old pub on the High Street with a postcode of SY6 6BY for your sat navs. The inn is also dog friendly if you have your canine friend in tow.
