  • In the last couple of centuries there have been a number of licenced premises in and around the village.

    The earliest, the Five Bells, held a licence from 1767. It is now a private house, having been for some years the village shop, situated in the centre of Shirenewton.

    The Tan House is said to be so named because in 1715 a tanner by the name of G. Thomas lived there.

    It's a traditional village pub open and serving food all day and every day. Live entertainment on a regular basis.
