Description: We are a friendly run family pub. Where a warm welcome awaits you every time. You can sit outside on the patio or sit over looking the river Severn . Enjoying a nice ice cold drink or have a meal, looking out for the kingfishers or the otters. In the winter, you can enjoy a meal inside feeling the warmth of our log burner. Or just enjoy a drink. Soaking up the friendly atmosphere. Sit at the bar and have a nice chat with our friendly locals. We are a dog friendly pub. There are water bowls outside, for our four legged friends. We also serve a variety of teas, coffees, lattes, fruit teas, hot chocolate etc. There is a special board, which is changed throughout the year. With a large selection of vegetarian options.

Visited this pub after a long walk so a very welcome respite. The location by the river is lovely, although the road is close and has to be crossed to go order your food and collect drinks. It’s not a busy road but something to bear in mind. The food we ate was excellent. Fish and chips and steak pie. Freshly cooked and appetisingly presented. Really enjoyed the visit and would return if we are in the area again.

Being the hottest bank holiday Monday we visited Ironbridge for the day.

As we walked drove around we spotted this pub across the river Severn. We decided to pop in.

Parking was horrendous as I guess everyone also decided to stop at the Black Swan too.

We went in and was greeted by a lovely lady that really made us feel welcomed. We ordered our beverages and managed to get a table outside.

The views are amazing and brought back fond memories of our holidays in the Caribbean.

If the weather's nice next bank holiday weekend we will definately return.

We visited the Black Swan on the recommendation from a helpful stranger in Ironbridge. It did not disappoint! Fabulous cider, fantastic friendly staff, box of games for the kids and wonderful food for a reasonable price - perfect!
Loved the walk there along a disused railway, loved the outdoor seating area by the river, loved the pictures on the toilet door indicating ladies and gents, and loved how brilliant the staff were with my kids (age 8 and 10) treating them like mini adults. If only all pubs were so welcoming!

Just got back from having lunch for 8. What fantastic service by Debbie and all the food was amazing, hot, tasty and plentiful. My Brother and his wife, who are up from Plymouth were also allowed to take their dog. Will definitely be eating there again.

My friend and I have been coming here for lunch for the past 3 or 4 years and have never had a bad meal before. In fact it has always been very good. Sadly today this was not the case. I suspect the normal chef must have been away. It wasn’t that busy but we were told there would be a twenty minute wait. It was nearer to half an hour. My friend ordered the chicken melt with bacon. The portion of chicken was huge and there was too much cheese so she left most of it. I had the burger which was not fully cooked inside and only lukewarm. The chips were also not as good as usual. There was a smell of burning fat so wonder if oven chips were used instead because of some incident in the kitchen. They certainly didn’t look like the ones that had been served to customers earlier. I then ordered an americano coffee with cold milk and a pot of tea. I was told the coffee was ready for collection from the bar. It was a cappuccino with cold milk! When the tea hadn’t appeared after a few minutes it had apparently not been ordered but was then delivered. No one asked us if we’d enjoyed our meals nor was there any apology for the missing drink. Because of past experience and the lovely location we will go back but if it hasn’t improved next time it’s off our list!
