Went for afternoon tea as a Mother's Day surprise. Staff were attentive and tea and food served on beautiful china. Cake selection wasn't the best but overall was a nice afternoon

I have been coming here for years and years, one of the few places I've always been proud to take visitors from around the country to. We called in last week and still found it to be one of the best restaurants in our area. We only had a quick lunch in the bar... a fish finger sandwich and the... More

The Mytton is great to visit in summer months as you are situated next to the river with a great backdrop. It's very alfresco and very popular. Enjoy nibbles or full on dining. Food is good Sunday roasts are great. Inside dining is very nice but I'm more an outdoors kind of person and enjoy nothing more than a large... More

Have stayed here for many years - even after its recent change of ownership. It's still good, and with wonderful riverside setting just off the old A5 en route to Shrewsbury, but book well in advance due to its popularity as a wedding venue.

We went there after a lovely day at attingham park. Although the hotel has lovely surroundings. There was no room to sit outside, even though it wasnt busy. There was a large area with inly about 5 tables to sit at. We had to leave and find somewhere else. Very annoying

If you like me think that an afternoon tea is a very special treat, then DO NOT go to the Mytton and Mermaid. No choice of tea or coffee, decaf not even offered as an option. Dry bread with stale faces. Plain fillings, ham , beef , salmon and cucumber. No relish or mustard option. Very poor service. The food... More

For the second year running I took my wife and children to the Mytton & Mermaid, (My children are 5 and 2). Despite after what i can only believe to be a very busy Mothers day lunch, we turned up at 3.00 for our reservation. We were greeted with Smiles from the staff and a well presented chap in a...

This is a magnificent grade II listed building, standing on the banks of the River Severn, it has been tastefully decorated and captures the charms of its original coaching inn days, reflecting an atmosphere of comfort and tranquillity. The hotel has been awarded 3 AA stars and provides quality food and service in a welcoming environment. Food is served all day and the range of menus feature fresh seasonal produce produced by the talented kitchen brigade. The venue benefits from a central location and is ideal for meetings and functions. Resident guests can enjoy a range of short breaks in well appointed bedrooms.
