The location, I assume would be OK in summer but, in February, it is all a bit grim. Right by the Severn which was hurrying by but just down the road from a little estate of worryingly run-down looking 'holiday' shacks, sorry, lodges. We were staying for a couple of nights and were looking forward to a cosy room as...

We've been meaning to review this place for years and after this years visit we feel we should. We've been coming twice a year for 3 night stays for the last 5 years and it has always been a pleasant experience. We come for the fishing on the river Severn. The rooms are lovely, although I come with a friend...

perfect for getting away from it all. We had a double room which was really clean and had everything you need. All the staff were very pleasant and on hand if you need anything. Food was perfect, always hot and lots of it. The locals who used the Ship daily were also very friendly and made you feel welcome. There...

Brilliant service from Management and Staff throughout our weekend stay. Everybody was so helpful. Great setting on the riverside and approx. 100m from Highley Steam Train Station, which is a must to travel on.

Having previously visited a little while ago and had a superb meal at a reasonable price I was very disappointed with a visit made on the 2nd January. I was looking forward to a similar experience but it was not to be. I ordered the large cod and chips with mushy peas with a hefty price tag of £11.00. The...

I was pressed to give 2 circles for the ship inn. We had a very rude waitress who it seemed may be have been deaf.. After family suggesting it may be her first day etc, I fail to see how she got the job. 0 people skills and total ignorance. Prior to coming we called and asked about gluten free...

Went here as a family today, bar staff great as always. Waitresses were a real let down, rushing to take orders when we weren't even seated or had been given menus, menu was very limited indeed, but must say the food was served hot and was tasty so thanks for that.. A real shame really as partner & I used...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Ship Inn was first built in 1770 for a local bargeman and has recently undergone a major refurbishment. On offer is superb quality dining and accommodation. Relax and admire the views over the River Severn while having a meal from our extensive menu. Our bar also serves quality real ales and fine wines. Situated on the banks of the River Severn, the location is superb for fishing, walking, bird watching and is within easy traveling distance of the historic towns of Bewdley & Bridgnorth. On the doorstep is the Severn Valley Railway station at Highley and Visitor Centre where various steam locomotives from the Golden Days of Steam Railway are on display. It is an ideal setting to come and enjoy a taste of Shropshire. ... more   less
