“Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2009

Recently refurbished - beautiful rooms (beams, creaking floors etc), very clean and cosy. Excellent service and lovely food. Not inexpensive but this is much more than a 'pub with rooms'. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a hotel in this area. Lots of lovely places to visit nearby (Bridgnorth, Ironbridge etc) and good walking country.

We were looking for a weekend away for our wedding anniversary and booked the Fox purely by chance and what a stroke of luck it was. The bedrooms are lovely, full of character and very tastefully decorated. We tried both the new bar food menu and the a la carte and the food, wine and service were excellent. Above all though, as stated in other reviews, it is the hosts who make the difference. John, Hannah and their staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. We had the most relaxing weekend imaginable. If you need a break and fancy Shropshire, this really is a gem, happiness guaranteed.

This must be the friendliest hotel I have had the pleasure of staying in. The owners, John and Hannah, could not have been more helpful (Hannah even gave us a lift when a taxi could not be procured), and they are to be congratulated on creating such an inviting atmosphere. They clearly enjoy their work.
The hotel itself has been recently refurbished to a high level. The cooked breakfast was excellent, and the evening food looked very tempting too. The bedroom/en suite was basic but clean and characterful (it is a very old and slightly creaky building). We enjoyed a peaceful night's sleep and I would not hesitate to recommend The Fox!

A group of us stayed in this hotel - we were attending a wedding nearby in Leighton. The entire experience really was fantastic and unexpected. The hotel has recently been refurbished so all the rooms are in a good condition with nice touches. The bar and restaurant are done in a contemporary style which works. However, it really is the service that has to be commended. The owners are incredibly welcoming, helpful and thoughtful. Before we left for the wedding, we were asked if we would like sandwiches to be left out for us when we returned. When we did return at around 11.30 pm we were made some excellent bacon sandwiches and a cheese plate - just what we needed. The bar was also open for us for to continue drinking for as long as we wanted. Breakfast the next morning was also excellent - a proper freshly cooked english breakfast.

If you are looking for a hotel in Much Wenlock, I would strongly recommend that you stayed here. We had friends staying in a nearby hotel in the village and the feedback was that it was terrible, over priced and grotty (about 30 pounds more than the Fox).
