October sunshine
we booked the bird in hand as it was central to all the museums. the Bird in Hand is one of the oldest buildings in the world heratige site of the Ironbridge. It is in a raised position over looking the river severn with seating outside and a childrens playground at the rear. it has a large car park to the front and the entrance is reached up a flight of steps. Once inside you are greated by the very friendly owner whos family have owned the Inn for generations. Service from the staff was excellent. The decor is of an old worldy Inn and very clean and cosy. We dined quite a few times here and found the food generous in portions and top quality,even if the choice of fayre was a bit dated. The rooms are at the back of the Inn and are reached by some more stairs ( a bit tricky if your not very good on your pins) The rooms are very clean and tidy and decor is in keeping with the Inn. You can hear the odd car go past in the morning but its not too much of a problem. Everything Ironbridge has to offer, nice Resteraunts good Pubs,Museums and beautiful scenery is within walking distance or a short drive away from the Bird in Hand. I recommend that you stay here, as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are planning to return soon. ( ps there is an ATM at the CO-OP and the Post Office in Ironbridge if you need cash )

Home away from home
Staying in a building that was so old was amazing, with so much history in the area Bird in hand was the only choice to make. We were not disappointed. Room (3) was large enough overlooking the river Severn with an extremely comfortable bed. Food in the pub was delicious so we will be going back to try out more of the menu. Things to note is that there are steps to the rooms so if you have mobility issues then maybe bird in hand is not for you. The pub also sometimes shuts early but you can take drinks to your room so that wasn't an issue to us.
