Came to spend 2 nights. £160 so expecting something. The bed was broken when we got there (they said they had been having trouble with the beds) and moved us to another room down the road. We had to transport all our stuff over. Spend a night in a good room (The Malthouse) but the room was above the live... More

We visited here one Sunday lunchtime being a bit cautious due to the sister pub being the Malthouse which we feel has really gone down hill. How wrong could we be, the moment we walked through the door the staff couldn't be more helpful, it was clean, excellent value and relaxed atmosphere and they were very good with our two... More

Seeing the rouring fire through the window drew us in and we were not dissapointed. Excellent food and very friendly staff. Good value for money.

My husband and I went for a day trip to Ironbridge whilst staying on a a 2 night break at a hotel in Shrewsbury. Unfortunately the hotel we were staying at wasn't very good, and so when we went to The Swan for lunch and found it so comfortable and welcoming we decided to leave our hotel and stay in... More

Popped into the swan while the flood barriers were up. The food was good, the staff were nice and the surroundings were pleasant. Good real ale. A little pricey but you pay for the joy of being in Ironbridge.

Went with a group of people for a meeting and lunch to set up an association. Local friends said it had a poor reputation but I believe it is under new management now. No need to be worried - the person from the group who booked us in had obviously done their homework. Staff were very welcoming. Good choice of... More

Wet and foggy Sunday drive with my partner led us to the swan on our way home, must say what a turn around since recent times. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. We chose the table next to the log burner and ordered our lunch, I had belly pork baguette whilst my partner chose the bacon and cheese... More

Having lived locally for a few years we had tried The Swan twice and given it up as a bad job, but the recent overhaul and, I believe, new owners, has made ALL the difference! I have visited 3 times now in 12 days and been impressed on each occasion. The first was as a solo female to just have... More
