Ye Olde Punchbowl Inn
Ranked #8 of 28 Bridgnorth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 February 2014

We stayed at The Punch Bowl whilst visiting family. From the moment we arrived we could not be made more welcome Both the owner and staff we're very helpful and we felt like nothing would be too much trouble.

We both have very busy lives and it was just lovely relaxing with a drink next to the crackling log fire with no-one around but "JD" the resident chocolate lab who kept us thoroughly entertained (the inn was closed in between mealtimes).

We checked in our room and it was just lovely. Exceptionally clean with a complimentary drinks fridge stocked with soft drinks which was a great surprise. It was also equipped with tea and coffee facilities. The bathroom again spotless with complementary soaps etc but also and had luxury extras you would find in a top quality London hotel including toothbrush (which was a blessing as we had forgotten ours), sewing kit, shower cap and travel razor etc.

After a night out we came back to a toasty warm room and the bed was lovely and comfy.

Breakfast was literally a foodie heaven with cereal to start and the biggest freshly cooked plate of sausage, egg, bacon, beans, black-pudding, fried bread, toast tomatoes and lashings of tea. I just wish I could of eaten it all.

Overall we had a lovely stay and the Punch Bowl offers exceptional value for money. We will definitely stay again and cannot recommend enough.

Stayed: January 2014

My better half and I stayed for two nights at The Punchbowl Inn in Bridgnorth just before Christmas for a relaxing getaway to belatedly celebrate our anniversary. We enjoyed a fantastic stay.

Our accommodation was spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and spacious with lots of character. This included a sitting room with sofa and flat screen TV, a large bathroom with a shower and large bath, bedroom with large comfortable bed, dressing table and another flat screen TV as well as tea/coffee facilities. Well heated room too.

They provided a mini fridge in the room full of FREE refreshments which was re-stocked daily. There was also lots of useful bits and pieces in the bathroom (far more than anywhere else I've stayed).

We enjoyed a carvery dinner in the tastefully decorated restaurant. The food was great and certainly filled a hole. We were delighted to find out that food was available via room service for no extra charge and so we made the most of this including breakfast in bed both days. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice and came with complementary cereal and toast, jam, tea/coffee, fruit juice etc. Breakfast as well as any room service was delivered to our room promptly and on time.

The Punchbowl Inn is in good location. I would recommend a visit to the Victorian town Blists Hill for a fun and interesting day out (only 10 minute drive from The Punchbowl Inn).

We received a warm welcome upon arrival and fantastic service by every member of their team throughout our stay and found our stay to be amazing value. We would definitely stay again. Thanks Punchbowl!!!!

P.s. Sorry for taking room key home with me (room 3). I trust you received it in the post a few days later?

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3. Fantastic room with great facilities. Next to the road though.

We could see that you had hurt your leg (as you were on crutches) so room service and morning breakfast delivery was not an issue for any of us, we aim to please all our customers

We did get the keys back so thank you for returning them to us :)

Fantastic night at Punchbowl. 50+ guests had an amazing Christmas party. The punchbowl team provided 'top class' food, entertainment & service. They pulled out all the stops to make it a fantastic night. Wouldn't want to go anywhere else. Many many thanks and can't recommend the Punchbowl enough. thank you. Lisa Stokes x

On the 29th of June I got married, we had our reception here at the Punchbowl. We had our own organiser Charlotte who did an excellent job, with good communication and advice, we were able to go into the room and arrange the tables with flowers and set up where people where going to sit the day before. There is a good choice of menus catering for all, we had a guest with a nut allergy and this was catered for with out a problem.
We opted for the world cuisine buffet, this different foods from around the world from curries to Chinese, American and English food. There was more than enough to go round and every one had plenty to eat.
There was the option of the in house DJ or you can get your own.
We stayed the night there and had a lovely room and a superb breakfast the morning after.
They also do wonderful carvery there.
I would like to thank Adam, Charlotte and the staff at the punchbowl for a wonderful day.

Our wedding and evening reception took place here on the 6th July 2013! What can I say! It was truly wonderful! Adam, Charlotte and the rest of the team were amazing in the run up to the wedding as well as during and after! They could not do enough for us! We had a difficult family situation and they handled it with great sensitivity which made me feel relaxed and confident that our day would go without a hitch! All the promises they made me were fulfilled and the whole team went above and beyond to make sure myself and my husband had a superb day. All our guests were also looked after, everyone said what a fantastic day it was. The food was absolutely unbelievable and many people had seconds and even thirds! Any questions/requests we had were responded to quickly.

The cost of the day was more than reasonable and worth every single penny, the location is perfect for anyone in Bridgnorth and the surrounding areas. Plenty of room for a big party!

We could not recommend the punchbowl enough! We have been to many of their organised events and always had a fantastic time, our wedding topped it all off! If you are looking for somewhere lovely, friendly, and truly marvellous to hold any event such as a birthday party or a wedding this is the place to go!

I had a party there recently. This is the second time I have used this venue and I was just as impressed again.
Food was superb. Hot and cold buffet. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Lovely function room which was ample big enough for our needs

Definately be going there again!
