We were lucky to drop on a good day weather wise and sat outside overlooking the river. Food was good, delivered quickly and staff friendly. Lovely spot to eat and relax. We had battered fish and chips and butternut squash lasagne - both excellent.

We have used the Black Swan quite a few times over the years usually for a meal and a few drinks as a couple and with friends. Our last visit was very disappointing as far as the meal was concerned, my wife chose Ironbridge Melt...More

Thank you for your review. I'm just checking you got the correct pub. We don't seat customers to tables. The girls who work for us, do not take food orders. But, they would of advised you to order at the bar.

Popped in for a meal on Saturday night. What a lovely surprise! From booking the table to meeting the landlady, who happened to come from Northampton, it was a cosy pub with a great local atmosphere. The food was fabulous from steak to ham, all...More

Response from Russell E |
I don't believe they do unfortunately. Think they open for drinks for a couple of hours but that's it.
I would like the manager to contact me please re a fairly serious issue.

We are a friendly run family pub. Where a warm welcome awaits you every time.
You can sit outside on the patio or sit over looking the river Severn . Enjoying a nice ice cold drink or have a meal, looking out for the kingfishers or the otters.
In the winter, you can enjoy a meal inside feeling the warmth of our log burner. Or just enjoy a drink. Soaking up the friendly atmosphere. Sit at the bar and have a nice chat with our friendly locals.
We are a dog friendly pub. There are water bowls outside, for our four legged friends.
We also serve a variety of teas, coffees, lattes, fruit teas, hot chocolate etc.
There is a special board, which is changed throughout the year. With a large selection of vegetarian options.
