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

visited a few times, food is always great and fantastic service too, there was a problem with one dish and they sorted it out straight away - brilliant service.

Our B and B hosts suggested we booked months in advance as this restaurant is very popular and is always fully booked at weekends. I can see why; it is the best restaurant I have been to in years. The staff are so friendly and attentive, they do an excellent job and certainly seem to be enjoying what they do.... More

Aiming to combine a small trip to lovely location with a special meal I hoped this restaurant would hit the spot! Travelling from Manchester we were greeted and introduced to the staff and soon felt a bit like old friends. Our expectations were high and we were not disappointed. Excellent place to feel good!

I rang up last minute and was fortunate to get a reservation for my wife's birthday on 18th June. I was especially pleased when I was told it was their monthly gourmet evening and there was champagne and canapé on arrival. The evening was a great success, the food, service and location were spot on. We even had a lovely... More

Went for a Christmas meal with colleagues who had been raving about this place. Everything about the food was lovely, however I couldn't help be a tiny bit disappointed. This was probably just because it had been built up so much what I was expecting somewhere Michelin star level. However it was still a lovely meal, and I will go... More

Lovely food, lovely proprietors and staff, great atmosphere. One of my life's great regrets is now that despite visiting Ironbridge several times in recent years we only discovered Severn last week!
