We didn't eat here but we went two nights on a trot for a pre dinner drink and found the staff and management to be extremely professional and friendly. It is close to all the shops and other restaurants and hotels in Ironbridge. Ideal base for exploring the area.

This is my third visit to The Swan since it's been under new ownership. Each visit has been really enjoyable. The food has been delicious each time. Whether you're popping in for a casual meal or having Sunday lunch, The Swan gets it right. Food is good value too. The Swan is a proper pub, with no pretensions to be... More

Shocking service!! The pub need to look at getting another chef!! Never have I had to wait 2 hours for food that you couldn't even eat!! I can't believe a chef would even allow the dishes to leave as it was over cooked rock hard inedible rubbish!! We refused to pay as we couldn't eat any of the dishes. The... More

We stayed over at this gastro pub and enjoyed it. It's right opposite the Ironbridge Gorge Museum and the River Severn is also opposite. We were worried at first that we might not enjoy the double bed as we're used to a king sized, but the room was fine. We just needed to beware the low ceilings as our room... More

Visited Monday 12th over two hour wait for food that was to overcooked to eat. Thankfully wasn't charged for it and staff were very apologetic. Unfortunately would not visit again, which is a shame as I live local.

We grabbed their last room after a day on the road, so we're grateful of that as time was running out! It was a very eclectic loft room at the back of the inn, quite comfy but the bathroom was rather difficult to shower in! Nice pub atmosphere with a lovely view of the Severn, food was good but service... More

We arrived on Saturday afternoon, the pub was quite. The prices were very reasonable and the food was fantastic. I had the chilli con carne nachos and my husband had the fish and chips. They were both delicious and the portions were a very good size. I really like the idea of ordering 4starter/snacks for £13. So that you can... More
