We had gone to see the famous iron bridge built by Telford in the 1790s and to meet up with long lost friend and his son and wanted somewhere to eat. We looked in a couple of pubs along the main road but they were always basic- wooden floors and tables with no tablecloths.. They obviously cater for walkers in...

Stayed New Year's Eve and room was perfectly acceptable given the price paid. Room 7 does not have a shower just a hand held shower head connected to the taps for rinsing hair whilst in the bath. Would have been a pain if stopping longer. Due to the roof slope it would take a redesign to rectify that. Staff very...

Stumbled upon this place by accident after another restaurant was fully booked. The location is close to amply parking, river Severn and the world famous ironbridge. The inside is open and rustic and has a log burning fire downstairs. The menu is not extensive but has a good wholesome food to tantalise any tastebuds. A good mix of veg and...

I have food allergies and they bent over backwards to accommodate me. Really attentive staff and excellent food. Will definitely come back! The location is great and the food top quality. The swan is definitely not a plastic chain pub and its unique and quirky layout make for a cosy and interesting fun if experience
