We recently had a girls night out and went for a meal. My friends picked the venue as it had my favourite pudding on the menu - spotted dick and custard. I had a steak off the special board and it was cooked well and I thoroughly enjoyed this. The pudding I had was delicious as not many places do... More

We stayed here in October for three nights for £230 pounds which included a three course meal for us both. The food was super and hearty portions , the room was very comfy and the location ideal with a car park, but most of all very friendly with excellent hosts. Super value .

Chose this hotel based on reviews, big mistake. Had to pay in advance so we were stuck for the weekend. Ate and drank in the Robin Hood next door and on later weekends stayed there( brilliant). Room was filthy and only cleaned pre arrival( if you can call it cleaning), the only saving grace was the owner who was a... More

A really great place to stay. The food is lovely, beautifully cooked and plenty of it. We're always made to feel really welcome and that nothing is too much trouble. We enjoyed ourselves that much that we've already booked to stay again!!

We regularly eat here even though its a good 30 mile round type. The food is fantastic, cooked to order, piping hot, generous sized and always served with a smile. Got to add also very thankful of Steve's very generous support to Shrops and Staffs bloodbike charity.

Having read the reviews on this pub I decided to book my friend and myself in for the weekend. We were celebrating her birthday on the Friday. On arrival we were greeted by Steve, the manager, who was welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. In fact all the staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was spotlessly clean and... More

We have been to the Bird in Hand several times even though we live quite a distance away. We keep coming back because we are always made to feel really welcome by everyone there and on top of that the rooms are lovely and the food fantastic. Can't wait for our next visit.

Just had some food in this lovely pub just outside Ironbridge town. The food was good and great value for money. The beer was well kept and a great taste. The welcome was special and we will be back again. Some of the places nearer the bridge are overpriced so it's worth the extra few yards to this place

We have been here many times and live close by. We always have an excellent meal. Plenty of choice, all home cooked, good size portions and reasonable prices especially if you have the discount card, which you are given when you go. Wonderful friendly service. Old fashioned, cosy atmosphere. Thoroughly recommended. The Christmas meals are excellent and great value. Very... More
