This is a welcoming, comfortable hotel with a fine restaurant and an outstanding wine list from celebrated Shrewsbury merchant, Tanners. It's not luxurious but it is really good and it is "only" a pub! The value for money is extraordinary,the service warm and I recommend it strongly.

My husband stumbled across this place on a boys walking weekend and brought me for a foody visit. As some have commented, our room was a little tired and shabby, but I think if it had been done up like a boutique hotel it would be a totally different ambience and price, so we had no quibbles with our room...

Stayed with a great value 2 night travelzoo offer. Don't expect an immaculately presented hotel - its old, a bit tired in places and quirky but liked it all the more for it. Lovely village, excellent 7 course taster menu and very enjoyable stay. Thanks to the hotel for returning a shirt left in the wardrobe. Highly recommended.

This was our second visit and we were pleased that we chose to return. Yes, the carpets are showing signs of wear but we love the atmosphere of this old hotel. We returned especially to sample the chef's resaurant menu and we were not disappointed - it was first class. However, be warned, the number of covers is limited and...

A group of his friends and his widow were planning to have a meal at the Raven on his birthday because it was his favourite restaurant.

The Raven Hotel with a history going back nearly 200 years has been beautifully re model to offer all modern conveniences whilst maintaining old world charm. The management and staff are polite, caring and accessible. The restaurant is probably the best in WENLOCK with an attractive bar/lounge. The hotel is in the center of the town and very close the...
