Amazing value for money considering the food is home made and fresh, deserts are mouthwatering and staff very friendly. Positioned on the edge of the river Severn this place was a real find and one I shall return to on a regular basis.

The Ship in provided an excellent base for visiting the area including delightful towns such as Bridgnorth, Iron Bridge and Shrewsbury. The Ship itself had excellent room and facilities. Breakfast and evening meals were both excellent. Staff excellent . No complaints at all and superb value for money. Picturesque and a must visit place. 😊

Overall the Ship was excellent with food,beverages and service all super, the room we were in, room 1, although comfortable was a bit cramped. The location for walkers and fishermen is great and we walked into Bewdley and Bridgenorth along the Seven,both of which are well worth a visit,the Kings Head in Bridgeorth highly recommended.

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
