The Tally Ho Inn at Bouldon in Corvedale has been named Shropshire Pub of The Year by The Pub and Bar Magazine for 2024. The newly opened establishment, opening back in July last year, has gone from strength to strength and now has the very prestigious award to add to it’s achievements. Engineered by chef Mark Harris and Sarah Cowley who also jointly manage last years winner of the award the Pheasant at Neenton, are still in shock after finding that they had successfully joined a select group of those listed as one of Shropshire’s best Pubs.

With this beautiful country inn barely 15 minutes from foodie-Ludlow, Mark and Sarah have looked to build a thriving venue that combines all the virtues and atmosphere of a great local with food that people will drive out time and again to enjoy. This has caught the eye of The Pub and Bar Magazine, that host the annual National Pub & Bar Awards and that is the leading publication providing operators the help to drive their businesses within the hospitality industry.

Since July they have ran the Tally Ho with a small and friendly team of local staff, many of whom have never worked in the industry before. Sarah, who manages the team alongside her front of house manager Ellie Harman said “ It is such a massive achievement for the team, who have all worked incredibly hard in challenging economic circumstances to bring life back to this pub in such a short amount of time, We have really tried to create a warm and friendly environment, whilst also being sympathetic to it’s history as a rural, country Inn.” The Tally Ho had previous been closed for around six months.

Mark, recently a national finalist for Chef of the Year in the Great British Pub Awards said, “It is really great to be recognised for this award, not just for the customers and staff of The Tally Ho, but by enabling us to promote all that Shropshire has to offer, like working with small, local suppliers and sustainable Shropshire produce. Mark continued. “We have such an abundance of local ingredients here in Shropshire which we will continue to showcase on our menus alongside sustainably-sourced, British fish and seafood.”

Sarah also commented “ We are incredibly proud of everyone involved, and we hope it will be the first of many accolades for The Tally Ho community” They hope they can take the Tally Ho all the way, when the national winners are announced in June in London.

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
