Excellent in every respect! Food, accommodation, staff, ambiance, cleanliness were all very, very good indeed. Spot on for visiting the Ironbridge Gorge attractions. Plenty of free parking. Enormous meals well cooked but very popular so you must book. We shall return.

We came here after a long cold day at the Victorian Town in Ironbridge. The food was good with large portions, friendly service and not too pricey. We had all 4 kids who were well catered for, and with space for them.

We had a meal here or my 26th. Amazing value. A lot of friends and family visit and told us to book a table and its a good job we did, we went in a Monday night and it was full to the brim and you can see why

The food is top class. You pay for what you get, the food might seem expensive but the amount you get is astounding.

We will totally be going back again. We have since been told they do smaller portions for certain dishes so we'll remember it for last time

And unless your a piggy don't order starter you'll never finish your main lol

Stayed at the Shakespeare for a week end break.....it was very cold with the odd snow flurry. The first thing we noticed was how warm the room was and how clean comfortable and nicely decorated too with a great comfy bed. (everything worked!)
Our welcome was warm and friendly from all the staff and the food was great. Good honest above average pub food. Be warned even if you are staying, it's best to book an evening meal as it's very busy, rightfully so. Breakfast is awsome, no need to eat for the rest of the day!!
The location is good, walking distance to most of the attractions and the bridge.
All in all a lovely week end and a treat to find an Inn like this, would highly recommend.

Room Tip: All rooms are accessed from outside at the back of the Inn, meaning you don't have to go thru...

We stayed at The Shakespeare Inn for a night, whilst visiting the Ironbridge Gorge. It's very well located and we walked from the Inn to the local attractions. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and the room was clean, spacious and in our view good value for money. We were in room 4. The noise from the bar below did come through to the room but it was not too intrusive for us and we actually liked it. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and did find the size of the portions daunting (they're massive) but did our best to clear our plates. We had ordered starters, which unfortunately didn't help with the challenge. For the main course I had the Fiery Tortilla and it was excellent. We would definitely consider the Shakespeare Inn if we're staying in the area again.

Will definatley be stopping here again, very cosy and well presented rooms with solid wood floors and views of the river and canal from all rooms. Very well situated for a visit to the ironbridge museums as it is directly over the quiet road from the tar tunnel, a 5 minute walk from the coalport china museum, 5 minute walk from the maws craft center, approx 15 minute walk to the entrance of the blists hill victorian town.food portions were large, the full english will no doubt set you up for the day. Staff are very helpful and polite throughout the stay.

Visited for 2 nights from 04/02/13 to 06/02/13
