Stayed for 2 nights and ate at the hotel. Some things to be aware of.... The hotel reception is not manned all through the day. We were advised to check-in at 1700 but arrived at 1630 and could not get into the hotel till the proprietor arrived at 1700. There is no lift and there are a lot of stairs... More

The room was very comfortable and Steve the owner is very warm, welcoming, and helpful. We extended our stay due to how much we were enjoying ourselves at the Bird in... More

Our first visit to the Bird in the Hand. The entire experience from making the initial phone reservation to the greeting when we arrived and the waiting staff would put larger chain establishments to shame. A really varied menu with good pub grub dishes. In fact it was one of the best pub meals we have had for a very... More

We called by here on a Sunday drive.What a treat, a proper traditional pub with friendly staff. Two meals were ordered, gammon which came with 2 eggs, chips and peas. Ham, 2 x eggs and Jacket potato. Both meals were well priced with very tasty. We will defiantly visit again when we are that way again!

Having stayed in many types of similar types of accommodation in Ironbridge it is clear that the Bird in Hand is in desperate need of a facelift. It would also be a good idea to lose some of the many notices that are posted throughout the place and the same goes for the dated horse brasses. On the plus side... More

Absolutely no complaints, we booked a table around 2 hours prior, there's a lovely environment, a great atmosphere, and seriously fabulous food with top service. There's nothing to not like.... No more needs to be said really. Highly recommended.

After a long drive from Southampton, we received a very warm welcome from the host, Steve. We were running late in booking in and Steve had contacted us to inform us of the time when the meals were finishing. A very comfortable room with a great view over the River Severn and very wholesome pub food. We enjoyed our short... More

I've visited the Bird in Hand many times over the years for meals and a quick drink. The service is always friendly and welcoming. The food is excellent, with a good choice of vegetarian options, I've never had cause for complaint. This is one of a few pubs that has remained consistent with its excellent service for a very long... More

We received an excellent welcome and were shown to our room straight away. The room overlooked the Severn and is bright and airy. The room has a flat screen TV; a hairdryer; a mobile phone charger with a USB socket and of course the usual Tea & Coffee making facilities. Free Wi-Fi is available.
