Belle Vue is accessed by the A5191 which runs straight through to Shrewsbury town centre. There are plenty of bus routes in and out of the area with the nearest train station being Shrewsbury approximately 2 miles away.

Pub Layout

The Belle Vue has a central bar servery, with a separate darts area and snug lounge at either end. There are ladies and gent’s toilets and a small smoking solution to front of the pub. Although the pub does not benefit from a car park there is ample on road parking nearby. The Belle Vue’s décor & furnishings are very traditional, however Admiral Taverns may look to invest in this pub with the right applicant. This would include interior and exterior décor and updating of the fixtures and fittings.


The Belle Vue trades as a community wet led pub with much of trade generated via locals. The pub opens all day every day from 3pm until late and is very much the hub of the local community. There is a very good cask ale following which has the potential to be developed further by either someone willing to learn cask ales or a cask ale lover. The pub has a strong following with darts and dominoes and offers some entertainment in the form of karaoke or live singers/open mic nights. Food potential is to offer a back bar offer such as snacks, crisps and nuts. Admiral Taverns are looking for licensees who will have local knowledge which would be helpful but not essential as the pub is in a friendly popular suburb of Shrewsbury town.
