I have eaten at The Swan before when it was just a Taphouse, no complaints of the food on those occasions. Thursday night I returned to the premises which is now a Smokehouse. Having never been to a Smokehouse before I didn't what to expect. The meals were new to me and it was hard to decide what to have,... More

We had read previous reviews before popping along for a mid week evening meal whilst visiting the town for a few days. Ultimately we haven't found too much to say beyond what has already been said: Service: excellent servers; polite, efficient and courteous. Speed of service: SLOW. Not the server's fault. You just get the impression that it takes a... More

VERY slow service - not the serving staff who were very good but the kitchen delivery was SLOW!! We ordered and asked for a child's meal to be delivered before the rest of the table - hers came second to last and we waited at least an hour from ordering - could have been longer ( you don't start looking...

The food is beautiful and very reasonably priced, service was great also. The only let down was a terrible choice of drinks!

We are lucky enough to live in Ironbridge, and visit the Swan regularly. The new menu is a fabulous addition to the town, giving us a great quality food, in a relaxed,atmosphere. It's perfect for having something simple as part of a night out. The bbq trays are tremendously good value; make sure you're hungry! The burgers and little plates... More

As a pub this place is really quite good, good selection of ales and a nice setting. Foodwise, however, is a different story in my humble opinion. After ordering the chicken sunday lunch imagine my surprise when the waitress presented me with a large tray covered in paper, a tin cup of french fries which were supposed to have been... More

Went here yesterday and had couple of drinks outside in the sun while looking at the menu....have to say I could of eaten many of the choices off the menu 😊. After a while we both went in and got a table no problem. I had the xxx hot wings which were smoked to perfection and had a great kick... More

We have just been to the Swan for an afternoon tea experience, bought for us by my son and daughter in law.......what a hugely disappointing experience it was. The staff were friendly enough and didn't mind waiting the half an hour it took for the afternoon tea to arrive as the surroundings are very pleasant. But what we were presented... More

Excellent atmosphere, drinks and food. Sadly, waited over half an hour for the food. A little too long.
