At short notice I had to attend a conference in Telford. All the usual chain hotels had sold out nearby. Based on all the excellent reviews I was lucky to find the last room free here and I wasn't disappointed. Greeted by a very friendly husband and wife (Bill&Hazel) I was shown my room which was exactly what I was...

In a tired old building up narrow stairs with a good handrail we found comfortable beds, clean bathroom and Windows that opened. Local pork chop dinner very reasonable and full English breakfast served well and quickly. On the main road to the Iron bridge which was a beautiful sight. Innkeeper very pleasant and helpful.

I have been to Ironbridge once before, but was unfarmiliar with the location, so we stayed more centrally. This time we booked a little way from the main Ironbridge town, and The Bird In Hand Inn was a great choice! Bill and his family were very welcoming and extremely friendly. My husband and I booked a double room for two...

Lovely people, lovely food, what more can I say? Comfortable rooms, nice comfy bed, nice garden in the afternoon, good location, even though on a main road there was no noise from the road. Breakfast to set you up for the day - ideal location for exploring the area

Visited the Bird in Hand, for a family meal, the comments from the family members, who had not been before, I can't believe the amount of food on the plate, large, and the quality, price too. The landlord and staff were very friendly too, nothing too much trouble! Don't forget to pick up your free discount card! Well worth a...
