Old Hand and Diamond

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.

Our bar and restaurant menu is available daily from Monday to Thursday from 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.

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.
