Popped in for lunch mid week. I had the pork belly which was fantastic and my partner had the blade of beef which was lovely. Great menu, excellent food, good service, value for money. Will definitely return

Stumbled upon this place by accident after another restaurant was fully booked. The location is close to amply parking, river Severn and the world famous ironbridge. The inside is open and rustic and has a log burning fire downstairs. The menu is not extensive but has a good wholesome food to tantalise any tastebuds. A good mix of veg and...

I have food allergies and they bent over backwards to accommodate me. Really attentive staff and excellent food. Will definitely come back! The location is great and the food top quality. The swan is definitely not a plastic chain pub and its unique and quirky layout make for a cosy and interesting fun if experience

I was just looking for a low cost place for me and my friends to stay in Ironbridge for a night out. The Swan was a good price, £65 a room and had more character than expected. The room was clean, stylish, a little dark but really homely. Would be happy to stay again.

The Swan Taphouse is a traditional pub by the riverside in Ironbridge, largely given over to the serving of food, but the food here is exceptional. We are both vegetarians, the menu choices are imaginative and delicious, so much so that we returned from Manchester for a meal a week after we stayed at the inn. The guest rooms are...

we visited mid week to use our Groupon burger and a pint voucher here. Staff were lovely & friendly, the food was cooked and served to perfection. It was a lovely sunny autumn afternoon, so we sat outside, but there was still a lovely atmosphere as we found inside. Very dog friendly too and straight across the road from main...

Brilliant Location - Thursday night parking was not an issue. Right on the river front in Ironbridge. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Spacious bar area, perfect for weekend drinks We ate in the bar over looking the river. Food was brilliant. Cooked to perfection, lots of flavour. Gin was served in jam jars. Will be back again. Current Groupon vouchers...
