I often stop off here after work for a few drinks. There is always a wide selection of Draught Beers, with some unusual choices amongst them. Also a great selection of Gins. We also ate here about 3 weeks ago, the steaks come highly recommended. All in all a very nice place to visit particularly in the summer months when...

Quite disappointed because this place used to be the bench mark for food and service in the local area. We asked at the bar if we could eat and was offered a table in the bar area. Got our drinks and sat at a table that hadn't been cleaned. We then waited 10 minutes for a menu but then had...

We had a late(rooms) booking, so excellent value. Room 10 in Cherry Cottage - looked newly refurbished. Hotel is by the river and a 12thC church. Fantastic seating on lawn outside and by river. Beautiful! Small details let it down a bit - I nearly fell down some stairs because of a loose carpet, poor shower pressure, curtain tie hook...

Stayed at the Mytton and Mermaid for 2 nights, fantastic location right on the Severn, easy access with car to Shrewsbury, and also a small drive to Ironbridge. Hotel is superb, the restaurant serves really nice food and the bar has a good selection of drinks. Special mention goes out to Stephen who was very diligent and went out of...

Just spent two nights at The Mytton and Mermaid and really enjoyed our visit. Would have loved to stay an extra night but they were booked out.

Loved the whole experience. Hotel was pretty and had a good atmosphere. All the staff seemed to know what they were doing. Food was lovely and the location couldn't be faulted. A great place to relax or come for a wedding. Lots of places to visit locally. Stayed in a courtyard room.
