“We didn't stay - but what excellent carvery meal.”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We had just had an enjoyable day travelling on the Severn Valley Railway from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster behind a couple of steam locos. Logged on to trip advisor to search for carve rues in the area.

The Down Inn came up. My partner is a vegetarian. So we drove 4 miles out of Bridgnorth - what a great find.

An extremely warm welcome and a fantastic cuisine on offer. In addition to the carvery. There were 4 options on the weekly specials and a very full menu. My beef was like velvet and there was a choice of 8 vegetables - peas, carrots, red cabbage, Savoy cabbage, boiled onions, cauliflower. Large homemade yorkshires, Courgettes. Roast potatoes, a vegetarian option was available for my partner. Thanks to all T the Downs Inn for a truly lovely meal. Will definitely return.

Great place, lovely rooms and friendly staff.
Peaceful location and reasonable prices, food good but geared more to Carvery meals at weekend, no complaints and defiantly going again.

We don't stay here (live not far away) but can totally recommend the Sunday Carvery, ring to book. If you like a traditional roast with choice of either pork, turkey, or beef or all of them good cuts and help yourself to the rest.
Good veg and roasts lovely gravy, go here if your hungry you will not be disappointed just wanting a sleep in the afternoon!.
Very well priced. Plenty of staff so no real waiting around.

Stayed at the down inn this week, had read reviwes and decided it would suit us. The welcome was good and we were shown to our room downstairs,. Large room with large wet room. Our meal we took from the menu with veg , large selection , taken from the carvery . Wine reasonably priced. We were still full at breakfast but managed a large plateful . All food was served hot. We had a problem with the bed ,we read reviews of comfortable beds. The staff were good and turned the matress. This didn't help, we were told that they would have to get a new matress , this was too late for our poor backs. So if you book the disabled room check that there is a new matress. The staff were very friendly and helpful no probs there.

I booked a room at The Down Inn last year (2013) for me and my partner through booking.com. Upon arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome from staff members who quickly and efficiently showed us to our room. The room itself was furnished beautifully with a warm cosy and luxury country feel and we were both very impressed as it was a very spacious room with an equally impressive en-suite bathroom with both bath and shower facilities and excellent linen. We sat down that night in the restaurant and had what I can only explain as an exquisite carvery in a busy yet warm and comfy atmosphere. We had an excellent sleep in the beautiful solid wood bed provided. As a whole we would definitely return and recommend The Down Inn highly for a nice country getaway with brilliant service all round.

Visited The Downes upon a friends recommendation, for my birthday. Thought it was going to be a little pub with basic food, how wrong could I be! The menu had a good choice to cover all tastes and the Cavery is on everyday, the vegetarian choices were great and the staff were more than accommodating with dietary needs. It was a large pub with lots of space and seating, it was busy so would advise pre booking. A fantastic experience, with lovely staff will definitely be returning! :)
