Stayed in a cottage in Ironbridge with a disabled gentleman in a wheelchair. The cottage literature had said visit Shakespeare inn as the food was good. We went on a Tuesday night early about 7.10 pm. We duly parked and supported our gentleman to transfer from his car to his wheelchair. We found a spot in garden courtyard in front... More

Loved this place. Placed good in the middle of Ironbridge Gorge area and very close to the Tar tunnel and the China museum. Friendly staff, good food in the pub (not the standard pub menu - much better). Seems to be a lot of locals dropping by as well which adds to the genuine feeling of the place. Room was... More

Some friends and we two stayed here for three nights. The rooms were reasonably spacious and well furnished. Although they were on the main road, we were not disturbed at night. We had been warned on arrival that a big party were dining that evening, so we got to a table at eight. The whole downstairs was absolutely heaving, and... More

We didn't stop overnight but enjoyed a well cooked, well presented meal on a very busy evening. There was a large party already in place when we arrived, and another expected an hour later [apparently to do with the end of the school year] so we were a bit concerned that it may affect the service. Though the staff were... More

I booked this Inn for 3 couples as a good place to stay to tour Ironbridge in particular & surrounding countryside. Couldn't have been better placed in the tranquil Shropshire countryside. All the rooms were clean and well maintained. The food was very good with large portions and breakfast was excellent. To top it all, the staff were truly excellent,... More

A really beautiful location in the Iron Bridge Gorge area of Shropshire and a wonderful, small inn. The pub/restaurant is excellent ... very large portions of freshly cooked food with loads of choice on the menu. Breakfast is in the pub/restaurant and is also of exceptional quality (and quantity!). The hotel only has four rooms and it is extremely clean... More

The proximity to the Ironbridge museums & attractions and glowing TripAdvisor reviews persuaded us to choose the Shakespeare Inn for our overnight break in the area. Our double room was a good size, well decorated and spotlessly clean. The tea and coffee making facilities were very well stocked - including cookies and hot chocolate, which were a nice additional touch... More

I use hotels a lot, and I generally avoid pubs-with-rooms because I can't afford to wind up in a noisy watering hole when I need a good meal and a solid night's sleep ready for business the next day. The Shakespeare's altered this entrenched view. This pub, while being a successful watering hole in its own right (with some of... More

We only stayed here for one night, but will return. Friendly staff, a comfortable room, and excellent food all contributed to a most enjoyable stay. On the accommodation front, the only things we would improve would be larger bath towels, and king-size duvets, but in all other respects the room was perfect. The bar/restaurant was warm, comfortable and fun on... More
