Love visiting here when in Ironbridge and surrounding areas. Kids enjoy the playground out back, wife is very fussy about food, but she thinks as well as me that the food here is outstanding. Often a good range of drinks on offer, including some ales. The accommodation they offer seems to be popular with travellers too. Lovely old pub in...

We unexpectedly came to the Shakespear inn and we were very nicely surprised, Staff were very friendly, the whole dining area and bar were spotlessly clean, our meals were absolutely out of this world, three of us ate the chicken in a bacon and mushroom sauce, salad and chips and one diner ate the sweet and sour chicken with split...

Popped in for a pint on a Saturday lunch time with my daughters. Off they went to play in the park area of the huge and picturesque beer garden leaving me with the daily rag. Feeling peckish I looked at the bar snack menu and chose to order a smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwich. Within 15 minutes I was...

Clean and tidy room, temperamental shower. Excellent value for B&B. Evening meal reasonably priced with good portions. Very friendly, informative staff. Stepped access to bedrooms does not make it easy for young or elderly. Pleasant river walks in both directions. Pub is only open between 1700 and 2300, so all is quiet by bedtime, noise was not a problem.

The Shakespeare Inn is an excellent place to stay when exploring the Ironbridge area. We were very pleased with our room, it was very clean and spacious. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We would stay here again without hesitation. You get a warm welcome when staying here.

The wife booked us in to the Shakespeare for food and an overnight stay for my birthday. On first appearances, it's in a lovely spot. The staff were friendly and welcomed us on arrival and took us straight upto our room. Everything you need was in the room and everywhere was spotlessly clean. We tried a few of the real...

The hotel overlooks the River Severn in the Ironbridge Gorge, a World Heritage area. We stayed in Room 1 - very clean and plenty of space. The amenities were superb including the luxury toiletries, the tea and coffee supplies and a modern TV. Of the utmost importance was the choice of real ale - 3 on tap and it was...
