Changes at the Shire Oak pub?

Recently I’ve heard some rumours that the Shire Oak pub is just about to change hands. With that in mind, I noticed that the pub was shut up and in darkness at 8:00pm when I cycled past this evening.

Anybody know what’s going on?

    Live near landlady’s daughter in Tamworth, they appear to have moved into her house! Have had both cars on her drive for 3 nights now!

    The Shire Oak has changed hands, I am a regular and the new landlady and lord seem very nice, the beer has been reduced in price too!

  • Hmmm..

    A return visit seems appropriate.

    Very pleasant- nice staff, landlord friendly, good beer. Didn’t try the food but it looked OK.

    They are no longer listed on yell and the telephone number for them seems to have been cut off. Are they still trading? Does anyone have a live contact number for them?

    • Well, they were running fine at the weekend. I’m fairly sure they’re still in business, I’ll check as I go past tonight for you.

      Best wishes

      • Yes, the Shire Oak was well and truly open for business at 6pm this evening. It’s a cracking house with a great atmosphere. I don’t have the number, but I know the landlord reads this blog so he’ll be able to help, I’m sure.

        Best wishes

      • I’d disagree. It’s a great pub. If you don’t want the music, there’s the bar. The beers good too. I’d suggest the empty car park is a symptom of people walking there, rather than anything else.
