“A Really Good Break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

My husband and I have just returned from a night away at the Raven and we had a great time. Our room was great - spacious and tastefully decorated with a nice bathroom. We really enjoyed our gourmet evening meal and the breakfast was good too. We have stayed before but this was the best for us!

Room Tip: Our room was bedroom 4

Booked an overnight stay with TravelZoo including breakfast(smoked haddock) and 7 course evening meal couldnt fault any of it.Very nice Chinzy room ,thought it might be noisy as it was on the front corner but we had a peaceful good nights sleep.Much Wenlock is very pretty and only a few miles away from the severn valley railway.Would definately stay here again

Just got back from a three day stay at the Raven Hotel. We spotted this little gem from a Travelzoo.com email and booked two nights, which included a 7 course meal on any night we selected. We also added a further day to our stay, independently, which allowed a little extra time to chill out.
No complaints, the staff and service were helpful and friendly and the food was first class. Compliments to the chef, as they say :-)
WiFi also worked well in our room.
We would recommend this to friends if traveling that way.

Room Tip: We had room 3, which is within the main building, not double glazed, but fine by us.

We stayed here last weekend on a 2 night Travelzoo offer. We have never visited this area before and thought it was lovely, Much Wenlock is a very quaint little town and we also visited Ironbridge and a couple of its museums. The offer included a 7 course tasting menu on our first night and it was all excellent. The portions were small so we managed to eat it all without being too full. The belly pork was probably the best I have ever had! Breakfast was good and we also ate there on our second evening. The staff were all very friendly and made us very welcome. We will certainly return to this area and stay at The Raven in the future, especially if we can get such a good value deal again!

Stayed in Gallery room 15.
A deal online. The room was very big, mezzanine with double bed. TV was small in bedroom & reception/tuning wasnt good.
Furniture in lounge was pleasant but, dated brown furniture elsewhere. TV reception good.
Bathroom large but again dated. But...... We had a lovely stay.
Garden seated area outside room. Very lovely.
It was a really pleasant stay. The staff were very friendly, helpful at every request. I would stay again, but would want a more modern room at full price.

Shropshire is a wonderful area to visit and staying at the raven hotel made for a memorable weekend. We stayed in the Forge, a very comfortable, clean and warm anex off the main hotel. The restaurant is simply superb and recommended is the 7 course taster meal on your first night then choose from the extensive a la carte for subsequent dinners. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. Service is second to none with attentive staff ensuring your stay is the best possible

We knew the hotel would be good by the way we were greeted in reception, & it just got better. The bedroom was light & spacious, with two soft armchairs & a comfortable bed, a good sized bathroom, both rooms equipped with everything that might be needed. Difficulty with the TV was attended to immediately. We were delighted with the exquisite canapes while waiting for our table each evening. The menu was imaginative; we tried every dish at least once during the week & found each one tasty & beautifully presented. Portion size was perfect - it is unusual to able to manage three courses without feeling uncomfortable. Without exception the waiting & bar staff were professional & attentive to every detail. Even when they were busy they always had time for a friendly chat & remembered our personal preferences. We found Much Wenlock an attractive & interesting town. 'Activities' we would recommend: the Severn Valley Railway & walking part of the return journey, Ironbridge where there is so much of interest that we only managed two of the museums in a day, walking on Wenlock Edge, the house & estate at Attingham Park, Wroxeter Roman City, Shrewsbury. With so much to do in the area we will definitely be returning.
