I stayed in this Inn this week and was amazed at the service, cleanliness and overall consideration to detail. The proprietors had thought of everything and had not scrimped on quality either. I would recommend to anyone and intend to go back there very soon with the family.

We stayed here in April for a couple of nights in a comfortable, well-equipped room. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and there was a nice buzz about the place on the Saturday night. The inn served good quality pub food (with a good choice for vegetarians), although portions are ridiculously big! A great location for Ironbridge museums. We did... More

Had a great weekend in this little Inn near Ironbridge. Our ensuite room (no.2) was nicely furnished & comfortable with plenty of tea/coffee & biscuits. The ensuite was clean & functional & the shower was lovely! We ate in the Inn for the first night, both having steak & it was first class. The second night we ate there again... More

A great location for visiting the Ironbridge Gorge - perfect for parking up, leaving the car and touring the sights on foot. The round trip walk up to Ironbridge via Jackfield was just the right distance for us. On returning for dinner, the generous portions in the restaurant were just what we needed, tho as others have mentioned, possibly too... More

Stumbled upon this lovely pub, stopped to have lunch. Not very busy but not a problem. Very happy to see the sign on the door saying no dogs allowed, I do not like to see dogs in a pub that is serving food. 5 Mins later one of the locals (Nigel) brings in his dog and that is acceptable. Needless... More

I have given this a very good, as a place to stay, because I can't fault the way it's run. I just couldn't go all the way in praise because of a few simple truths. This IS a pub - and as such you need to have certain realistic expectations as a sleeping guest. My own experience - as someone... More

The room was very pleasant, although getting to it in the rain was not. (Steep stairs located outside.) The innkeeper did help us with the bags but may have been a little rough with them. (Our iPad screen got cracked - fortunately we're insured.) We arrived about 30 minutes before the kitchen closed but were still able to order food.... More

Have visited the Shakespeare loads & it never fails to deliver - menu is lovely, always spoilt for choice. Food is always amazing, tasty & fresh -huuuuuge portions too!! It's definitely my favourite place to go for an evening meal - only (very tiny!!) criticism is that the main pub can get very noisy when it's busy, purely because it's... More

Popped in for lunch. Served till 3.30pm on a Saturday. The choice is vast. Everything sounded tasty on the menu. We struggled on what to choose. We wanted everything! But we made our decisions and we really were not disappointed. The portion size was right up our street - massive! Tasted delicious too. We ate every last bit, although we... More

I was somewhat surprised to find the Shakespeare was in a rural location given the closeness to Telford. The other surprise was that they don't unlock the doors until 5pm so an early arrival is not recommended! However, that said, this is a great pub on the doorstep of the historic attractions of Ironbridge/ Coalbrookdale - you couldn't find a... More
