Taproom sold to growing independent craft beer pub group

The Seven Stars pub in Shropshire is being given a new lease of life as part of craft beer and eatery chain Craft & Jam.

Birmingham-based licensed property specialist, James A Baker, managed the sale of The Seven Stars pub in Beckbury, near Shifnal.

Craft & Jam already operates The Malthouse and The Swan, both in Ironbridge, The Last Inn, in Newport, and The Bull, located in Rodington between Shrewsbury and Telford.

Craft & Jam is known for its craft beer, live music and food, and the Seven Stars will be a part American smoke house and part British pie house offering from the group.

The Seven Stars, located on Madeley Road, closed to customers at the end of March.

Shropshire-based Craft & Jam is planning a programme of renovation work which will include creating an open plan trading space and incorporating an external bar to serve food outside.

Amy Potter, from James A Baker, said: “We are pleased to secure the sale of the property on behalf of our client to an experienced local operator who will be investing in the site and securing its long term future.

“The renovation work at the Seven Stars is expected to take around three months with the aim of re-opening the venue sometime in either late July or early August. Once open, it will trade as a mix between an American smoke house and a British pie house.”
