“Gaskall in the rain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2012

Stayed here for three nights. A good location in Much Wenlock even though on a busy cross roads. The first disappointment was the advertised wi fi didn't work in our bedroom, though reception was good down stairs
Excellent room but a bit on the small side, very bright and airy and it had everything we needed. Comfortable bed and a full size bath, but it took a long time (and a lot of water) before the hot water reached us. Good service with extra milks and tea available in our room.
We ate in the bar the first night, the menu was mediocre, the fish was over cooked and my wife's cottage pie was very sloppy and not enjoyable. We went to the Talbot in the high street for dinner the next two nights that was excellent and recommended.
I am sure it was not intentional but somehow the price on my bill was £10 higher than the booked online price this was corrected but shouldn't have happened
Overall good room but poor bar food

Stayed June 2012, travelled as a couple

We stayed here last June and reviewed this hotel as excellent.
The staff made it so.
We did have a problem with our shower,low pressure, but were offered better accomodation if required.
The chef's special were varied and tasty.
The real ale was well kept.
The huge car park is ideal it seems for firms ,on our stay,cyclists with a holiday company for example.

I just popped in for a Sunday evening meal as I was on my way home from a business meeting. I had the fish chips and peas. The fish was excellent - the beer batter was very light and crispy.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
The decor of the pub was quite tired and in need of some refreshment.

First impressions when arriving are of a tired old pub however once inside you realised this was a true traditional pub hotel. The warm welcome and attention from the staff throughout our stay made for an enjoyable experience The food was simply excellent with a good choice served well. As a group, we discovered that some bedrooms weren't too wonderful and the Mews room was disappointing. Compared with other hotels in the same price range, the accomodation was below par but the food compensated for this.

Room Tip: Avoid the Mews rooms.

We regularly use the mews houses when visiting family in this picture-perfect village. The staff are very friendly and helpful and they are always willing to help us configure the room to accommodate our family (which includes two children and Grandad!)

The breakfast and evening meals in the restaurant are lovely and our daughters always ask for Much Wenlock sausages when they get home. (There is a butcher in the High St who always has a queue outside - yum)

The gardens are ideal for sipping a G&T whilst the children play. All in all a lovely home from home for us when we visit our relatives.

Room Tip: We have not stayed in the pub/hotel itself but the Coach House has a kitchen downstairs with double...

Booked over the internet, so not sure what to expect, I was not disapointed, friendly staff, clean small rooms but had all the things you would expect.
