Restaurant Severn advertises itself as having been voted the "best restaurant in Shropshire". I therefore had high expectations of some moderately 'haut' cuisine. Things started well as we were warmly greeted and shown to a table, prettily set out with gleaming cutlery, glassware and proper napkins. A jug of water was brought without asking and menus arrived promptly. These were... More

Recently visited with a group of 12. Service was low-key but excellent. Quality of wines on the list is really good and the prices are reasonable. Had mushroom soufflé to start and beef Wellington for main. Both were divine. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area and it is worth the 15 minute drive from Telford to eat at...

We booked a table here after reading the reviews on TA and we weren't disappointed. A warm welcome on our arrival and continually throughout the evening added to our evening. Our meals were delightful, beef Wellington was beautifully cooked. The wine is also reasonably priced. Booking is advisable as almost full on our Wednesday evening.

Had a marvellous meal here last night. Everything was perfect from canapés to the most delicious petit fours, (which we enjoyed today courtesy of a doggie bag). We started with scallops which were paired with bacon. Then lamb noisettes, a mini shepherds pie and dauphinoise potatoes and a generous vegetable side. I was 'persuaded' (didn't take much!) to have creme... More

We went to Severn on our last night in Ironbridge on the basis of the reviews on TA and weren't disappointed. Warm friendly staff and well cooked food at a reasonable price given the quality. We were impressed - and were relieved we had booked for a Thusday evening since the place was quite rightly packed. Julie and Adrian

we turned up without a booking on gourmet night, which could have been a problem in such a popular, tiny restaurant. However, the hostess cheerfully accommodated two more and couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. The service was very good: friendly but not intrusive, and the food was very good, for me especially the canapes and first two courts.... More
