The Raven Hotel & Restaurant
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Much Wenlock
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Just had a pleasant 2 night stay in this small hotel in a lovely little town.
Very good meal on Sat eve - taster menu in the hotel restaurant.
The en-suite bathroom was just awful - extremely dated and shower rail taped on to brackets with black tape. Needs a total makeover, as did the bedroom, although not as bed as the bathroom. No wiFi in bedroom so had to keep going to lobby. Dated furniture in dining room and bar - a shame as with a bit of money spent on it, this is potentially a really nice place. Nice staff.

Room Tip: get one where the wifi works and bathroom not so grim!

We met some friends for a overnight stay, this hotel being located halfway between us. We had a really fabulous time and the the " taster menu" was one of the best meals we have ever had. Would really recommend this hotel and the taster menu and will be returning again.

Just returned from a lovely stay at The Raven and cannot stop thinking of the superb food we had.
We arrived and were shown to our room which was large and light recently been tastefully refurbished. After a pre dinner drink we were taken to our table next to the log burning fire (so warm and cosy ) and then experienced an exceptional 7 course taster meal. Our waiter was friendly yet very professional throughout the evening. The food in our opinion was 1st Class as good as many of the Michelin Star restaurants we have eaten in. I have to say the Chef had to serve numerous different dishes as one is a Vegetarian and his choice of food was fantastic and we would recommend it to anyone - the food which was presented to us deserves some sort of recognition and hopefuly the food inspectors will agree. We were well looked after by the owner and Staff and hopefully we can return in the future for another delightful break.

Just stayed at the Raven using a special offer deal. The room was very nice, warm and comfortable. The location of the hotel is excellent in a picturesque country village. The staff were very polite and helpful. We arrived early but immediately checked into our room without any problem. The evening meal was very good and the main reason for the visit. The staff looked after us with without being overbearing. We relaxed after the meal in the comfy bar area. Breakfast in the morning was very good and again there was no pressure to check out. Overall lovely location and friendly professional staff. Definitely recommended.

We stayed here for 2 nights in September 2013 using a deal voucher. We were given room 3 which was a reasonable size but quite dated & also quite chilly. On mentioning the temperature though, the heating was quickly turned on which certainly helped.
The deal included a 7 course taster menu on the first night. Having experienced taster menus previously in other establishments, we were a little disappointed at the style & presentation of the food. To be fair to the hotel though, they did not describe it as a taster menu & thus our expectations were probably higher than they should have been. That said, the food was absolutely fine.
Breakfast was very nice & we both ordered fresh fruit salad which was extremely well put together & obviously freshly made. Full marks for both breakfasts all together.
The staff were friendly, chatty & attentive throughout our stay & Much Wenlock is a pretty little place, great for a short break.

We stayed for 2 nights from 31st Dec and really enjoyed the 7 course Gourmet dinner. The food was amazing quality and the staff were all so lovely. Breakfasts were just right in terms of quantity and of course the food quality was great. We ate them by the open log fire too. Our room was massive and very comfortable. A perfect place for a weekend break, especially if you like walking. Much Wenlock itself has so much character and there's lots to see.
