Here for 56 years

Our parents bought the Stiperstones Inn to retire to in 1968, it has been in our family ever since.  My daughter Lara and her husband Philip are now the licensees.
John still runs the shop, officially Stiperstones Stores but always ‘John’s Shop’; an alladin’s cave of value for money groceries, wines and spirits, pet food, hardware, kitchen goods, tools and everything. Open everyday, usually until 6pm but sometimes later.
Geoff does his best to clear up after everybody, recycle and keep the garden tidy.
We both try to keep fit despite our combined 156 years, and recently completed the Stretton Timetrial for the umpteenth time. A recently installed treadmill keeps us out of the wind and rain.
Lara and Phil have kept up and maybe improved the reputation of the Stiperstones Inn as the friendliest and best value hostelry in the area, if not the whole of Britain.
Tim Hockly our next door neighbour and builder extrordinaire has worked tirelessly to maintain and improve the fabric and decor of this 18th century building and the newly extended toilet block is a joy to experience.
