The Mytton and Mermaid

Atcham, Shrewsbury

Opening 2023

Welcome to the Mytton and Mermaid

Built in 1735 on the banks of the River Severn, it was first known as the Talbot Arms, but has been given many names since then, settling on the unusual Mytton and Mermaid in the 1930's after being purchased by the famous architect Sir Clough Williams Ellis, who developed the Italianate village of Portmeirion in North Wales. Sir Clough converted the building to a hotel and chose the name Mytton after a local character ‘Mad Jack Mytton’ a gentleman who squandered his fortune in the most spectacular way, and the Mermaid came from the crest of the Portmeirion hotel.

The building has been run as a wedding venue and hotel in recent years. We plan to sensitively restore and refurbish the Grade II listed house and gardens over the summer and autumn months, with the intention of opening our doors as early as possible in 2023 as a pub offering 10 bedrooms and a small private room seating up to 40.

Love pubs? Like walking? Read on...

With the help of the AllTrails App, we are planning to create a circular walk from the pub and through the surrounding area, to help you work up that thirst/appetite. You will be able to view the walk details via a number of ways (varying levels of tech savviness required -Ed)
