Very busy pub on the banks of the river severn. Well located for the local area. Good service, good food. Room spacious and clean, good bed. Road noise could be an issue. No lift and a bit of a grubby trek up to the room.

The Mytton and Mermaid is a great traditional hotel in a lovely location only let down by the busy road it is adjacent to.
There is a large garden and seating area to the front, another to the side on the river banks and a very pleasant enclosed and covered courtyard to the side of the restaurant entrance. All these areas are pleasant places to relax and the road noise was not very noticeable, unlike when in our room.
The room my wife and I stayed in was comfortable though noisy as it was at the front facing the road. This would not be a problem if the room had AC but the windows had to be opened as it was very warm. So a tip is avoid rooms facing the road.
The bathroom was ok but we couldn't get the shower hot at all, no matter what we did with the control ( the wife suffering a cut hand when the knob fell off whilst trying).
The staff were excellent and a credit to the hotel.
The food in the restaurant was good to very good and brought at the right intervals between courses.
Overall I would recommend this hotel with only the road being a negative, oh and a little better dusting in the rooms would not go amiss.

Room Tip: Do not take a room facing the road.

We have used the hotel quite a few times orders food and drink our friend received his drink and when asked for ours told it was on its way . It did 10 minutes later , food arrived 35 minutes later , don't mind waiting but it was only sandwiches, chips need to improve as they were quite soggy . Will try again ?

We visited for an early Dinner on Tuesday 5th August 2014.

I will pre-empt my review by stating that I have eaten here on many occasions before and, having working in the food service industry for 15 years, I don't complain lightly!

The Mytton is an "old favourite" as we have never had a bad meal/experience - until now.

In the past, the staff have always been immaculately turned out and clearly part of an team. Not today. Very disjointed and, dare I say, scruffy.

We asked for a table in the main restaurant, which was easily accommodated.

The menus came quickly - no sign of the vegetarian menu.

I ordered the Chicken Caesar and hubby had the Chicken Burger. We had a side of fries and onion rings. We had paid for the drinks at the bar and had a jug of water on the table.

Hubby was happy enough with his burger. However, that was it.

My salad was very poor. The chicken still had a its covering of fat which was flaccid and unpalatable. The bacon was all fat. There was the hard centre core of the little gem lettuce in the middle of salad. The tasteless dressing had been poured on to the leaves, which were very slimy. The were 2 shavings of parmesan. It was served with 3 small slices of garlic bread, which were stone cold and rock hard.

The sides : the chips were very uncooked (they looked as though they had not even seen the fryer), cold and tasted nasty. The onion rings, though hot, tasted of nothing at all.

We were not courtesy checked at any point until the waitress came to clear the plates and there was no-one on the "floor" to complain to prior to that.

Needless to say, I left most of my meal.

I pointed out the problems to the waitress. She promptly asked if we would like dessert!!!!! I asked for the bill.

When the bill came I was advised that, because of the problems, we had not be charged for the side dishes. However, we had been charged for 2 drinks and coffee - none of which we had had.

Bill finally sorted, we left - we shall not be returning any time soon and certainly will not continue to recommend the venue.
