This was our second visit and we were pleased that we chose to return. Yes, the carpets are showing signs of wear but we love the atmosphere of this old hotel. We returned especially to sample the chef's resaurant menu and we were not disappointed - it was first class. However, be warned, the number of covers is limited and...

I was arranging a special meal in memory of a close friend who died recently. A group of his friends and his widow were planning to have a meal at the Raven on his birthday because it was his favourite restaurant. I rang to make the booking and, after a very long wait for an answer, I spoke to, who...

The Raven Hotel with a history going back nearly 200 years has been beautifully re model to offer all modern conveniences whilst maintaining old world charm. The management and staff are polite, caring and accessible. The restaurant is probably the best in WENLOCK with an attractive bar/lounge. The hotel is in the center of the town and very close the...

As it was the mini heatwave in July we declined, plus we have one at home..still a nice touch. Luxurious bathroom on ground floor plus...

We don't know what Raven Hotel some critics stayed in because The Raven where we recently spent three nights was very pleasant, clean and staffed with knowledgeable, competent and pleasant people. We enjoyed very much our meals, including the Tasting Menu.

We booked for 4 nights and were allocated a room in the main building. On arrival we were shown to another room in the courtyard which was damp and with very tired decor. we asked to see our original booking. That too was dated and had a broken shower. Third time lucky. We were given a recently refurbished room with...

I managed to get a last minute twin room here, after searching all over the area. there was an event on in Telford, so my usual haunts were all full. As I drove through the lovely village of Much Wenlock and into the ample car park, I knew this was a good choice. The hotel has two buildings, the main...

"Tis better to travel than to arrive" just about sums up The Raven. Booked late online for an overnight stop on our way home from the Lake District. Despite being resident, unable to book for evening meal as we were told that the restaurant was full. We were allocated Room 12 and were somewhat surprised to see how grubby everything...
