There is now only one pub in the village, the White Horse, located on the main Shrewsbury to Bishops Castle road in Castle Pulverbatch. Accommodation comprises 3 B&B rooms, all with newly installed en-suites. You may email owners Steve and Vikki Nash here; or telephone 01743 718247.

The pub is still owned by Steve and Vikki but they have now taken on a new fresh challenge of running a family business in France This is a wedding venue with holiday lets and B&B rooms.
They have promoted long standing employee 'Clare Mertha' to a 'Live in' Manager and that she is continuing the success of the 'local village pub'.

The White Horse Inn, a farm-house until the 19th century, is partly 14th or 15th century in origin but was extensively re-modelled early in the 17th century. It contains 3 cruck trusses, in positions which suggest that they may be the remains of two houses at right angles to each other and an exposed timber frame (square and rectangular panels) to the ground floor. Beside the front door, there is a poem inscribed on a piece of wood and referred to as "old doggerel":

Cathercott upon the hill,
Wilderly down in the dale.
Churton for pretty girls,
Pulverbatch for good ale.

Church Pulverbatch has long been known locally as Churton, probably as a corruption of 'Church Town', as it possesses the church, while the pubs were both in Castle Pulverbatch.

Bar and restaurant menus are available with sample menus to view on their website. They also offer a range of real ales and a wide selection of wines from Tanners, Shrewsbury.
