“Excellent staff. Questionable bedroom decor.”
Reviewed 30 October 2011

Harking back to the sixteenth century our bedroom at The Fox Inn should be forgiven for creaking floors, a lack of soundprofing and a dearth of accessible plug sockets. The gentle walk up the hill to the en suite only added to its charm. However, fitting out the bedroom with an eclectic mix of bric-a-brac was questionable.

What made our visit enjoyable, however, was the service offered by the staff members whilst the owners were away. Chris, the manager, was excellent, always attentive but never obsequious. Connor, the nineteen year old "junior chef" produced quality evening meals, attractively presented. The cleaning lady was always pleasant and cheerful.

If you are contemplating Much Wenlock for a short visit then The Fox Inn is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Make sure that the tea/coffee facilities in your room are not located in the en suite and on the oth...

I have to strongly dissagree with the reviewer who complained the rooms were dated here. They are not they embrace the age of the building without being flashy. So what the bathrooms arent brand spanking new? What does that matter. They are finished in an individual way which is the whole point of boutique. I've stayed here several times and every time the rooms have been spotless and the service impeccable . Hannah and John are fabulous hosts and whenever I'm near Shropshire or Birmingham I make a point on visiting this very english but fabulous inn.

Room Tip: Ask for room 2 or 4!

We had a fantastic herefordshire steak and most alcoholically laden desert ever on our one night stay here.
John the owner and chef was an extremely friendly and funny host.
The room we had was very quiet at the back ... The inn is on the high street , so not sure if the rooms on the front would be noisy as there is no double glazing.
The bed was a little lumpy for our taste , but we slept very well... Must have been the deserts !
The breakfast was traditional English that set us up for a lovely walk from the village up onto wedlock edge and back.
We shall return.

Room Tip: One at the rear

If you like your room with period charm and crooked floorboards - I do - then this is the place to stay in Much Wenlock. Better still, the restaurant is absolutely excellent. Try the fillet steak, and then you can die happy!

A welcoming and characterful 16th century inn. It is kept spotlessly clean and the bedrooms are cosy with exposed beams, nicely furnished and the beds are super comfortable. The plumbing is very antequated but works well enough except for the shower which is impossible to temperature control (either scaldingly hot or cold). The breakfast was nicely presented.
The evening meals are very expensive for an inn of this rating. The Talbot across the road offers substantial high quality food at much lower prices. The puds are yummy!

A very pleasant, comfortable room with all facilities. Friendly, obliging staff - most willing to attend to every request. Convenient car parking and a well stocked bar. Very tasty food (we took advantage of the "early bird" menu served between 18.00 and 19.00, excelent value). An ideal base for local attractions such as the Iron Bridge museums.

My sister & I had one of our regular weekend meet up's here. Lovely hotel, friendly staff and great food. The Fox is a very old building, so quite creaky and full of character - nice atmosphere.
We ate in the restauarant for dinner and really enjoyed the food and ambiance. We did book in advance - which I think is advisable.
