5/5 Excellent

Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This Inn was close to most of the Ironbridge museums yet set in a quiet area just out of town. About 20 mins walk down steps and beautifully trellised walkways. The staff were very friendly and the food was great, nicely presented, tasty and well priced. Room 4 was a lovely twin room, separate bathroom and a sitting area looking down onto the courtyard. Would definitely stay again, though the beds were overly hard:(

Great customer service
We booked for a weekend visit as a base to explore the Shropshire hills and blist Hill victorian village which were very close. The customer service we received here was second to none, really nice and friendly staff. There is a car park on site which was reasonably sizable, which we had no problems getting a space at all hours. We also enjoyed a delicious breakfast, and an evening meal in the pub too, definitely recommend the burger. A short albeit steep walk into town to visit the ironbridge is recommended aswell. Overall a great experience, will definitely return again in the future
