This was a treat. Our group of four looked at reviews and took on board local recommendations and booked for a Friday night. None of the party were disappointed with the food. It was tasty,flavourful and well plated. Service was discreet but attentive. Surely a 'star' is in the offing soon.

We recently had a short break of three nights in Ironbridge, and on the recommendation of the proprietors of the B&B we stayed in, Library House (see separate review) we booked Restaurant Severn for dinner on two nights. On the first night we were joined by two friends who had travelled from Ross-on-Wye just to join us for dinner. They... More

I visit this area frequently for work, and have always meant to come along and try this pub, but they always seemed full to the brim! On one visit I was promptly given a table upon arrival, even though the place did seem incredibly busy at the time. This pub bustles with atmosphere and everyone, from the staff to the... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Restaurant Severn. Refreshing to find hand crafted food nicely presented in pleasant surroundings. The "extras", canapés, bread baked on the premises and petits fours were a nice touch and all helped to add to a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The menu was comprehensive, varied and represented excellent value for money. Excellent all round. Would thoroughly... More

Went there last night and they had been told that their electricity was going to be cut off about 9:30 as there had been a fire next door. Even though they were working under pressure the food and service were excellent. The staff were efficient and courteous and kept a sense of humour despite the difficulties.

Visited last week, Food was superb good range of choice, friendly staff. Nothing was to much trouble. Eat here you will not be disappointed. I find it amazing that people complain about the cost.

It seems to be a running trend on this website that it’s easy for you’re expectations to run away with yourself, only to be rather underwhelmed by the overall experience, which really is no fault of the restaurant itself. Undoubtedly this is a really good restaurant, which I would recommend, but we both just felt underwhelmed by the food, and... More
