Pleasant if rather functional venue with very good quality food. I like the limited choice on the menu kept fresh with specials. This has allowed them to keep the quality up. There isn't a great amount of personality here but it's spotlessly clean and the...More

Decent selection of wines (and beer) by the glass. Attractive dining area with outdoor balcony in fine weather. Good value whenever you are...More

Theatre Severn is a super theatre. It is quite small so offers an excellent view of the stage from all seats and good surround sound. The seats were extremely comfortable. Due to the size of the theatre, the orchestra for "The Sound of Music" were...More

He Foundry Restaurant is a cafe by day offering a great selection of teas, coffee and cakes complete with a seasonal menu to suit all tastes. As the day evolves to evening The Foundry transforms into a relaxed restaurant atmosphere where we offer a great pre-theater experience with stunning views of the river Severn. We have daily specials championing local and seasonal produce, and serve deserts and drinks for the interval. The perfect way to enjoy a night out at the Theater.
