About the hotel
Our famous Inn was built 5 years before the Iron Bridge was completed. 90% of all duties are carried out by the Poulton family (Bill, Hazel, Steve and Michelle) so as you can see, we really are a family run Inn. We run our Inn how an Inn should be run in a historical village.
NO DISCO'S, NO KARAOKE, NO LATE NIGHT MUSIC LICENSE AND NO LATE NIGHT DRINKING FOR NON-RESIDENTS, as many of the other accommodation pubs in our village do have these facilites. So if you stay with us according to our visitors comments book you will get excellent food, a good night sleep in our superb rooms, so you will be bright eyed and bushy tailed to visit our wonderful museums. Step back in time and walk on the first Iron Bridge to be built in the world to span a river. (The River Severn), which is the longest river in Great Britain. The source of the River Severn is Plynlimon Wales and discharges into the Bristol Channel. We have an excellent menu with a choice of 20 starters, 30 main courses from steaks, lamb, pork, gammon, chicken, mix grills, steak and ale pie and many different currrys, 5 fish dishes, full vegetarian menu and sunday roasts, finally but not least step back in time for our spotted dick, treacle and jam sponges. We also offer an excellent HALF BOARD option (Bed, Breakfast and evening meal) at a set price. Your evening menu has a choice of over 12 starters, 30 main courses and 12 desserts. This offer is the most popular with our guests as over 75% of our bookings are for half board, also depending on the time of year you can get your 3rd night free! Many of the local guest houses in Ironbridge recommend us to their guests as we have built up an excellent reputation for local dining over the past 28 years.

Rooms a bit sad and dated, breakfast was an extra not included in price.
Geff, we're very sorry that your 1 night stay with us wasn't up to your expectations and would've hoped that if you had any issues that you would have raised them whilst you were enjoying a couple of pints by the river ......! Just to put you straight on a couple of things all our rooms are tastefully furnished with everything you would need for a short break let alone a 1 night stay whilst you're in the area working ! Secondly breakfast is included in your price as I said to you upon arrival that breakfast is served between 8-9.30am but you declined as you were leaving early to complete your work at the Phoenix school ! And thirdly we receive £52.50 of your payment for the room Inc breakfast as the remainder is collected by laterooms which of feel is of excellent value in a world heritage area such as ironbridge....
Great short break
Had a great short break at the Bird in Hand, nice room with view of river, comfortable bed, good food, friendly staff, and all at a reaonable price.
