The modern Olympics owes a great debt to the games founded in Much Wenlock in the mid 19th century. That by itself makes a visit worthwhile. Even without that its a place worth seeing with its collection of the most extraordinary buildings. You have a sense that the people in the town take the view we are doing OK just... More

My partner and I stayed here for one night.. It was fully booked everywhere so we settled fro a twin room. The room was lovely and warm as the owners had put all the heaters on for us. The beds were clean and comfortable. There was no shower just a bath with a shower head attached to the taps. You... More

We found this gem after visiting the Priory and what a find. Wonderful greeting when we arrived by what we found out later to be the owners. The Talbot oozed charm and everyone was friendly, it was a good layout too with the bar central with tv off to one side for the footie/sports fans and another area off to... More

The staff were all welcoming, efficient, hard working and friendly, they are the heart of the success of the Talbot Inn. Our room was in the old malthouse and and been effectively renovated into a room... More

Not long returned from a two night Groupon break at The Talbot Inn costing just £79 and including a three course meal on the first evening for the two of us. We were in the Malt House detached from the pub which was fine though no shower. Great pub with lots of character and friendly staff. Much Wenlock is a... More

This residential Inn is located in the historic market town of Much Wenlock between Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth, home to the Wenlock Olympian Games. and lots of great shops. Menu to suit all, expertly cooked and freshly sourced. (Wenlock... More

Parking the car in their 3 space car park, we spotted the Malt House where we thought we'd be housed and another adjacent white walled cottage. The... More

Arrived on a Thursday after a very pleasant walk on Wenlock Edge. It was a groupon booking, which was excellent value. Accommodation is reasonable not outstanding. Food was standard pub grub, reasonable value, nothing exciting. Breakfasts, as part of the package were good value and plentiful, the first morning, served by a man was good and well organised. The second... More
