We have been to Blind Tiger several times and it is very nice place. However, My advice is to stick to the bottle beers and don't attempt the draft beers. Kozel is an acquired taste to be sure however the 2 pints we ordered yesterday...More

This place is just too cool. Inspired by the prohibition era speakeasies, Blind Tiger has great decor, funky furniture and funk and soul pouring from the speakers. The cocktails are potent, the beer is tasty and the service very good.

I've been a couple of times and I really like it. The place s quirky. The staff are friendly and the cocktails are amazing. This place is always a must for me, on a Shrewsbury day out.

Think of a film where the lead character is whisked off into a hidden bar that's stylishly decorated and relaxed, whilst serving interesting cocktails... And you have Blind Tiger in Shrewsbury. Not only that, but there's wooden games dotted about for the competitive amongst us!...More
