These guys just get it SO right! The restaurant is small and intimate, you get excellent service, although its very discreet, the table is yours for the evening which is bliss and saves people trying to chivvy you out of your seat for the 'Second Sitters'. The menu is really imaginative and everything is as fresh as fresh. Probably the... More

We went to Restaurant Severn to celebrate our friend's birthday. The warm welcome, the wonderful food, the service was excellent. We loved the crispy and light Yorkshire puddings. The desserts were to die for. Thanks Eric and Beb for the cheese platter we had requested.

Due to the popularity of this restaurant we had to book several weeks in advance and were really looking forward to our meal. The atmosphere was warm, the food lovely and the service very efficient and friendly. Unfortunately though we were made to feel a little like we had overstayed our welcome at the end of our meal. Now we... More

We dropped in mid week and enjoyed a really good meal. Excellent service enhanced the experience as did the very nice wine. The food was cooked perfectly and was very tasty. We would recommend a visit.

We booked this restaurant for our anniversary and we were not disappointed. We were greeted on entry by the Head Chef/owner and then taken to our table by serving staff. The food was amazing - excellent flavour and good quantity of each course. All of the staff were lovely and we thought for the quality of food, drink and service... More

This is a very pleasant place with a nice atmosphere. The food was ok and the staff were excellent. There were some very nice touches like the canopies. Slightly overpriced but everywhere in Ironbridge is.

My husband booked this restaurant as an early valentines gift as we were away on the day. All I can say is that is has to be the best restaurant in Shropshire. The food was excellent, the atmosphere and ambient perfect for a romantic evening. While we were choosing our meals they served lovely canapés. The staff were professional but... More
