Our Story

The Dickin Arms takes its name from The Dickin family which were the largest estate owners in the parish of Loppington in the 17th century and builders of Loppington House in 1820.

North Shropshire Public House

It was thought that it became a public house in approximately 1780. The village has the only remaining Bull Ring in North Shropshire, which was reported to be used for bull baiting until the 19th century. Loppington is also home to the beautiful St Michael and All Angels church. A grade I listed church mostly dating from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, with partial rebuilding and restoration programs in the mid-seventeenth and eighteenth centuries it homes some Norman stonework which survives in the nave. The building material is dressed sandstone, which is not plastered or painted and gives the interior a natural and warm feeling. The church has four hatchments dating from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and various wall monuments mostly from the nineteenth century and modern tapestries. The church suffered considerable damage by Royalists during the civil war in 1643.

Family Run Business

Today this family run business has a love for good food, excellent wine, tasteful surroundings and a warm welcome. Purchased in December 2016 by Jamie & Nick Taylor, this once old-fashioned village pub has been carefully transformed into a tasteful space that will make you feel right at home. We’ve taken care to ensure that The Dickin Arms is a venue that can host any occasion.
