The Old Hand & Diamond Inn

Inn with 7 rooms £42-£86 prpnb




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.

We have seven en-suite bedrooms, decorated in a traditional country style with exposed beams and rustic features. All rooms are located on the first or second floors and are centrally heated with double glazing. They all have colour televisions, radio alarm clocks and tea/coffee making facilities.

There are a great selection of rooms with double beds and also family-sized rooms that can cater for up to five persons. Also available for the use of our guests are hairdryers, ironing boards, shoe cleaning kits and travel cots, all of which are free of charge.
