I have been to the bird in hand to stay on many occasions and it's excellent value for money. This weekend we ate there on Friday and Saturday. The food is excellent and the portions are big, excellent value for money Staff friendly and welcoming Would rate this venue A+++++++++++++++

We stayed here for one night on our way to Anglesey in November which is off season for this area. We arrived at around 8pm and the landlord was kind enough to cook us some supper even though the chef had already gone home. The room was relatively basic and dated in it's decoration but was clean and comfortable. The... More

We are now regulars with the Poultons. Every year they make us welcome and put up with our quirks as we are model makers here for the biggest show in the world! A great base to set out from for Telford but close enough to the pubs and eateries of Ironbridge to walk there and back. Quiet and a comfy... More

We have decided that this pub is a good base for not only visiting Ironbridge, but also places a little further west and north. Once again we had the 3 night half board break but this time we were in room 2. This is a family room at the front of the building which has views of the river and... More

Not the first time we've stayed here and certainly wont be the last, the rooms have had some upgrades since our last visit which is nice to see the owners are not resting on their laurels....Steve the host is excellent and will take the time to have a chat over dinner or breakfast which is what sets this place apart...

Ever had a real problem like us who booked the wrong nights. Well that's what happened to us. Steve really helped - found a bed at a nearby B&B for our friend and managed to fit us in at the hotel. Thanks for that and we had a great time at this lovely old pub. We had the top floor... More

Stayed here for two nights at the end of October. It's a lovely quaint place to stay. Within easy reach of all nearby attractions. Had a nice room at the front overlooking the river. The room was clean, the host friendly, and the breakfast good. Would stay here again.

Stayed for 2 nights with my hubby. Lovely welcome! Lovely big room with comfy beds! Lots of tea, coffee in room & view over the river. On main road so we had early morning traffic noise but it didn't bother us. The food was not the best I have eaten. Excellent location for exploring Ironbridge & surrounding area. Would return...

My wife and I stayed here last week for a three night break ( special offer). The accommodation was perfectly adequate and comfortable. The menu was extensive and the food very good. The pub is in walking distance of all the museums, though we drove to some due to rain. The dining room is cosy and the owning family members... More

We use the Bird most weeks and always receive a warm welcome. The meals are plentiful and always tasty. The staff are always friendly . Having used the Bird for a number of years we classify it as our local albeit that there are probably 20 restaurants between our home and the Bird.As. Regulars we often meet people who are... More
