Just dropped by for an impromptu evening meal. Ordered in the Nick of time as last food orders at 7:30. Nice chilli and chips and lasagne and chips, freshly prepared. The wine was good and not expensive and the local draught beer very tasty. Price was good, too!

We didn't want an exotic meal and the menu here looked as though it would cater to our needs. And it did! Great, value for money food and drink, at a table overlooking the Ironbridge, itself. Fabulous, thankyou.

Stopped here as a group of 8. Nice place to sit outside right next to the bridge and on a sunny day was perfect. Carvery was good value at £7.95 with choice of beef, pork or lamb or a little bit of all three. Good selection of vegetables. Food was very good. Friendly bar staff and Chef Overall very nice,...

We'd been out visiting museums for the day and fancied a beer. There are chairs in the sunshine and it is a great place to just sit, drink beer and watch the world go by. The beer was very nice we just had to have a second. We didn't eat anything and cannot really comment on the inside or food.

This affordable hotel is at the foot the Iron Bridge. Room was modest, but effective. WiFi was only in bar but reached room near the door. Location was fantastic, however.

Just a short 2 day stop at this hotel... arrived to have Sunday Carvery, which was very good and reasonable... the cost of Larger is on the steep side compared to my own local in Worcestershire.. but most of the pubs in the area are charging up to £4.30 a pint, so shop around.. The room was clean with tea... More

It is set in a perfect spot directly across from the famous bridge and on weekend afternoons very popular with 'Bus Pass' carrying biker's and the beers and wines were very good and reasonably priced but food for me was a just ok and a bit dated.
