Had a wonderful meal here - we were well looked after by Charlotte who was attentive and friendly, ensuring we were topped up with drinks and happy with our meals. Great atmosphere in this attractive establishment and very reasonably priced - would recommend!

We visited here on the May Day Sunday. The food was very tasty, and nicely presented. Our dog could join us, which was great. I had the Cajun salmon, with coriander crushed potatoes. The interior is very tastefully decorated.

Supremely disappointing meal. The steak pie had zero flavour, actually it is an insult to cardboard to make a comparison, and the pastry was just awful. The chips that went with it were not cooked and still partly raw. And the order came out wrong. Fish was oily even on the inside, also was tasteless bordering on old / long... More

Booked Sunday lunch and had good experience. Very busy for late September . Went back on Tuesday and Wednesday evening for dinner, not so busy but food and staff really good. Understand the pub only reopened in early September .

Newly opened..new re-furb..all the staff are helpful and nothing is too much trouble..Sunday lunch menu is varied and the 'Ultimate Yorkie' is a challenge not to be missed. With views of the river and an outside seating area..what's not to like.

We always used to go to the swan in Ironbridge to just have a drink or a snack on those sunny days walking along the river. It was a real shame when it closed some 18 months ago as it always had a great atmosphere and was the type of place that you could go in for a drink and... More
