“A lovely midweek break!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We stayed at The Fox for 2 nights and were very happy with all aspects. The building has the charm and quirkiness expected of one of its age. Our well-equipped room was a quite large, with character and cosiness in good measure. We did not meet the owners, as they were on holiday, but the relief manager/chef was extremely hospitable and provided us with superb food and a great line in conversation!
Much Wenlock is a lovely little town with lots to see and pretty countryside to walk in. We would definitely like to return, and would happily book in at The Fox again.

Spotlessly clean and plenty of hot water. Had a very comfortable night. Bathroom a little old but more than adequate and loved the stripey towels. Good breakfast.
Evening meal very good value if you go for the early bird supper and was lovely.
Nice sitting out area for an evening drink in the sunshine.
Will certainly be visiting again.

Friendly and inviting B&B located in centre of the small village of Much Wenlock. Well maintained property and our room was spotlessly clean. Check in and check out was fast an efficient. Unfortunately we missed breakfast due to a late night at a wedding the previous night but no doubt it would have been good. I had heard the food is excellent from a lady who had dined there recently.

We stayed one night in this Inn, the staff were very hospitable and the food was good.

Unfortunately the room we had was 2 star standard but we paid £85 for the night which is more like 5 star price. The TV in the room was a very small old style TV with a free view box attached, this would need to be upgraded to warrant the charge, also the shower controls were on the bath taps so needed to fiddle with the hot and cold taps to get the right temperature, the pull knob to direct the flow to the shower head was broken and not replaced.

This room would not be suitable for people not to steady on their feet as the floors were very uneven and sloping, but this is an old public house so this is to be expected, but thought people needed to know.

We have stayed in premier inns with rooms and facilities better than this.

We were on a two night weekend break visiting the local area. The village is very quiet with only a couple of places to eat. The Inn is typical old English with a few tasteful updates. Food was excellent especially breakfast. Good value too. Annex we stayed in was clean, tidy and quiet. Only criticism was that the bathroom didn't have a shower. That must be fixed!

After being flooded out of our tent in a nearby campsite we popped into this b&b without booking and were immediately welcomed and given a room. All of the staff and the owners were incredibly friendly and even dried all of our stuff out for us. The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated and the beds were to die for! We had the best nights sleep! We opted for the themed menu which was 3 courses for £12.95. The theme was French and it was delicious and beautifully presented. The food was served quickly and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful, it was obvious to us that they all very much enjoy their jobs. The breakfast was lovely, we had the option to have a cooked breakfast, cereal, tea, coffee and orange juice. Would recommend this b&b to anyone visiting, especially to those aiming to visit Ironbridge as its only a short drive down the road. We will definitely be going again. Much Wenloch is a lovely village with some incredibly beautiful period buildings and some lovely walks nearby.

Room Tip: Our room was on the ground floor and so had a lovely view onto the street and saved us carrying our...

Stayed 3 nights on a business trip to avoid staying in Shrewsbury or Telford. Met on arrival by the owners who are so friendly and look after you so well at all times. Ate in 2 night and food was good. The rooms are very individual as you would expect in an old Inn and mine was fine, except for the shower temperature varying wildly. Colleagues were less lucky with one fumbling for a corridor light switch amd managing to set the Fire Alarm off, so room allocation can be a bit of a lottery.

Room Tip: Don;t take rooms in the annexe unless you have to
