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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Decided to take part in pizza night. Despite being vegan and my partner dairy intolerant the pizza was great. Washed down with decent beer and good service!

This pub is set in picturesque Shropshire, right on the the river Severn. It has a lovely caravan park next to it. Food was brilliant the menu is varied and very reasonably priced. The food was plentiful and we were not disappointed. The only thing...I would say is the service could have been a little better. Personally I don’t like having empty plates left on the table for near on 15 mins after I’ve eaten, to be fair to them they were busy and had new staff in training.More

Two separate visits provided two different experiences! We ate here in an evening and then the following day for lunch whilst staying at the Campsite. The evening meal was very good, nice food and attentive bar staff especially the Polish girl. For this visit I...would have scored four stars! However lunch the following day was marred by the attitude of a very brusque barmaid, (she was a brunette, slim and had a wire haired terrier). There were people queuing to get in at 12 noon, and the front door was open at 11.59. We observed a man ask the lady in question if the pub was open? She replied “we open at 12”. Not very welcoming! My wife ordered two pints! One three tuns and one Shropshire Gold. Once poured she placed them on the bar! My wife asked which one was which? The brusque bar lady said they are in different glasses! My wife looked at the glasses and replied they were both in Salopian glasses!! The bar lady embarrassingly muttered something and then said which one was which! Again no need for this attitude! You are in the hospitality industry! We ordered a fish finger sandwich which was very average with little taste and at £7 overpriced! This visit would have scored 2! So therefore the two visits score 3. A shame really that the lunchtime trip spoilt our overall experience!More

We visited here on a Friday night as we were staying at the Royal Hill Caravan Park/Campsite next door. Menu is varied with something for everyone and the food and atmosphere, are both great. We did have a large party next to us, but as...we ate earlyish, this didn’t really spoil anything. The pub seems to host lots of events which is great to bring the locals together and I’d imagine it being extra busy in the summer months when the campsite is more occupied. We’d love to stay in the campsite for longer next time and we’d definitely eat in the Royal Hill Inn again!More

Really very good, busy atmosphere, good service. We did question the texture of the Chicken Dish which did disappoint and I would wonder why they have chosen to poach as it turns a chicken breast into a mushy tasteless meal. Gammon,Sirloin Steak, Scampi excellent very...good value.More

We had a great night!! We were advised by Sam where we’re staying to come here after we arrived later than expected as we arrived it was busy, so we knew it was popular! It was pizza night so we both got a pizza :)...And some chips of course as we’re on holiday. Got served by a shy but very polite young blonde waitress. staff all worked clearly very hard running back and fourth to serve their customers. Great family vibe, beautiful views and a lovely change to our usual busy lifestyles! Would recommend 100% to anybody looking for a bite to eat or just a drink! Nothing to fault.More
