Open all year

The River Severn slides past the grounds of this substantial Georgian coaching inn. On one hand is the ancient stone church; on the other a stunning old bridge arching gracefully over the waters. From waterside benches and the grassy garden are restful views of this favoured corner of rural Shropshire. Dating from 1735, the inn is tastefully appointed throughout; the lovingly updated interior reflects the essence of long-past mail-coach days. There’s a relaxed feel about the place, especially the bar which features a wood floor, scrubbed tables, comfy sofas and an open log fire plus Salopian Shropshire Gold and Sharp’s Doom Bar beers. Dining opportunities make the most of the generous larder of the Marches so on the bar menu you could find pressed chicken and red pepper terrine; home-made Glamorgan sausages, sage and thyme mash; and Cajun-spiced sirloin steak salad. Smaller meals might include home-smoked breast of pigeon, and deli boards add further spice. For dessert perhaps try the raspberry and Limoncello cheesecake; or warm treacle tart.
