Great atmosphere, happy friendly staff. I too had the fish and it was the best pack of scampi fries I've had as they don't do food, contrary to other reviews!

The Wrekin View was,in the past, a very nice public house to visit. However,although a very good building, which was built about 30 years ago to replace a much older pub, it has been run down over recent years. The building is very large but unfortunately is little used.

I visited the Wrekin view pub for a catch up and some food with friends, it felt like walking into a prison cell as we were the only ones in there at peak time. The atmosphere was no where to be seen and didn't feel to comfortable in the place. Staff fairly polite and food was standard cheap prices and... More

Awful experience Waited 11/2 hours for two meals chicken and chips and gammon and chips not very nice when it finally arrived. Waitress very unfriendly and Manager didn't give a dam. They had no card machine no toilet paper and no vinegar. I could go on and on. Just one word of advice think twice before going. Would not recommend... More

Nice little local tucked away in Telford.. John the landlord is the best, typical scouser .. You'll love him to bits.. He has a fantastic rapport with anyone who comes in .always stuff going on in the place.. If your in Telford pop in and say hi to a top landlord .. He'll let you walk his dog 😀

Can't understand why this place has had bad reviews ? I've used this pub on many occasions and find the staff and people very friendly and helpful ! Helen and Craig work extremely hard to make people comfortable and at home !! I do believe in being honest and can truly say I've not had a bad or cold meal... More

Passing here and needed something to eat so opted for this place by chance rather than choice. Wish I hadn't bothered. Horrible atmosphere, or lack of. Freezing cold and desperately needs updating. The staff are miserable, probably hypothermic, and asking a simple question was reacted to as though I had smacked them in the face. When I submit reviews I... More
