We really enjoyed a family birthday celebration, meals and overnight stay. We were extremely well looked after, staff were welcoming, obliging and very pleasant. There was a good variety on the menu and food was well cooked and personal preferences were accommodated. Rooms were comfortable and very clean and the riverside location provided spectacular scenery even in winter. Looking forward... More

Went here for a quick lunch, because over forty years ago, my wife was a waitress here! The pub is situated off the abandoned road that originally led to the tollgate bridge. The river was in full flood, so we got a table that provided a good view of the receding tide. Ordered fish and chips. Reasonably prompt service for... More

We really enjoyed our overnight stay at The Shard between Christmas and New Year. The picturesque location is the main attraction, right on the banks of the River Wyre, giving great photo opportunities at sunrise and sunset as well as the chance to observe all the wildlife the river supports. Our rooms were on the front of the hotel with... More

I stayed here for one night with some colleagues when going out for a christmas dinner. Bathroom was basic, with a basic shower but was fine for a night. The room was comfortable with a window that could open and looked out onto the estuary. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking very convenient outside.

We stayed here recently with friends and we were all happy with the Shard. We were given a warm welcome at reception and offered assistance with our bags (which we didn't need) and given the key's and directions to our room. Our room was on the second floor with excellent views across the river Wyer. The room had a comfortable... More

A great pub overlooking the River Wyre. A friendly welcome and a good selection of beers/lagers are there to great you. An imaginative menu and good service. Its not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

Visited the hotel in November as we were due to see our grandsons our son and his partner in Bisham. Warm welcome when we arrived late evening and after a quick look at the fab room on the second floor it was down for dinner. Really impressed with the service and the choice and quality of the menu and the... More

We stayed at this hotel whilst visiting relatives in the area. We received a warm welcome at the reception and were told that we had one of the best rooms. In order to get to the room we had to go up two flights of narrow stairs. No problem for us as we only had an overnight case each but... More

A lovely thorough and honest review, thank you. we are pleased that you recognised our standards. All our rooms have standard double beds as required for our 4* rating. We do appreciate your comments on this though. Our sister hotel, the Mill at Conder Green has such facilities as twin rooms and if necessary would, I am sure welcome you... More

My family and I stayed at the hotel to go to Blackpool Illuminations with my three year old daughter. We wanted a hotel that was close to Blackpool but far enough away from the crowds and hullabaloo. The location of the Shard Riverside was ideal as it was about 5-10 mins from the seafront but set in a really quiet... More
