Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Whilst having an old and more traditional look to a pub might be nice Unfortunately this place has not moved with the times and the food is really poor. There is very limited choice on the menu (visited on a sunday) and every one of us was disappointed with our meals. The food is not home cooked its quite obvious that they use both frozen products and ready made sauces from a jar (e.g the tomato sauce on top of the fish and ready made mashed potato). The presentation is awful and there was barely enough vegetables to feed half of us. Given there is such strong competition in much wenlock and surrounding on the food front I'm surprised they still get people visit. Prices are also high given the quality served. Each to their own but we won't be wasting money here again.

14 friends and family descended on The Gaskell Arms for Afternoon Tea to celebrate my wife's 70th Birthday. The table was set beautifully, the sandwiches and cakes were plentiful and the staff helpful to the extreme. The chef managed to accommodate all the little sub requests and the afternoon was delightful. The Gaskell Arms is an ideal place for family / social gatherings. Thanks to Charlotte and the rest of the team.

A very nice, cosy, old worlde inn which feels a little like stepping back in time but not in a bad way. Quite comforting, this and the value for money is overall good and quite fair. This is our fourth time to stay here and each time we have been allocated the same room; 7. In hindsight, this might have been better had we tried another room for comparison as, although very clean and tidy, even with the heat switched off, the room always feels a little too warm. The restaurant has this same cosy ambience with original wooden beams across the ceiling and table 3 in a window alcove is perfect with a nice view out to the traditional buildings of Much Wenlock. Note: the menu is truncated on a Sunday but the waitress informed us that the chef would happily produce a dish from the usual menu should we want it. The food is decent and tasty without being exceptional and good value. As it was still a nice mild evening, I was able to enjoy a cider out in their back beer garden which is quiet and has a covered section in case of rain. In short, if you're looking for a swish boutique style hotel this isn't for you. If you're looking for an old world experience with friendly staff and for a fair price, in a lovely heritage town, with scenic countryside, then this should suit perfectly.

Having never stayed in this part of the country before, we had no idea what Shropshire was like. We found the hotel delightful, the staff friendly and the food delicious. We enjoyed our stay, although short, we found Much Wenlock had a lot to offer and would certainly stay at this hotel again

Really good food, well above expectations. Crisply and lightly battered whitebait to start. Loved it that something as classic as lamb's liver, bacon, mash, cabbage, peas and gravy was on special. The generously sized tuna steak was beautifully cooked and served on a bed of an imaginative and delicious salad.. way better than the ordinary lettuce etc. Chance find on holiday in the area...lucky us!

Nice pub but sadly lady seving was rude and unpleasant. Ordered two main meals one was great the other for my husband was pork stroganoff and was a child's portion. When we were asked about our meal I explained the portion was small. The reply" order a pudding". Easier said than done as my husband is a diabetic

Pub accommodation in a good location for the Town but on a busy/noisy through road. Clean and comfortable room but looking a bit tired. Average cooked breakfast but a bit disappointed that I had previously informed them I was Gluten Free and no effort made to get GF sausages. This day and age GF sausages are available in every supermarket. I was compensated with an extra fried egg. GF toast was provided. Parking on site.

Went for Sunday dinner - sadly it was far from impressive. Staff all pleasant (not their fault the food wasn't fresh). Placed an order for a roast at 7.05pm, the food arrived at 7.15pm - which tells you a lot about what's happening in the kitchen, or not as the case may be. Everything is preheated food from lunchtime - it was so obvious. Whilst carrots, cauliflower cheese etc can all reheat nicely, roast potatoes and yorkshire can't. The roast beef was edible enough but grey and somewhat overcooked. Our aim had been to spend a leisurely evening having dessert and drinks , but the meal just put us off. Whilst we absolutely appreciate it's hard on the hospitality industry right now. Serving under par food to tourists isn't going to boost ratings. I'm sorry to say we wouldn't return.

We enjoyed the most delicious afternoon tea today at The Gaskell Arms. The sandwiches were lovely, very generously filled, a good selection of cakes and mini scones, we also enjoyed the delicious strawberries, with a choice of tea or coffee at a very reasonable price which was good value.
