Our second holiday in Shropshire staying in Jackfield just above the pub so paid two visits here. It is a really friendly establishment that serves excellent food - good menu with a wide variety of choices

My husband ate fish and chips, which he declared was excellent. The fish was white, and the batter crispy and was excellent value for money. My burger was huge and very tasty. There was a specials board with a good selection too.

Went to the Black Swan on a recommendation and found it to be friendly and welcoming. Beautiful location, a relaxed atmosphere and great food. We shared two lite bites and chips finished off with a delicious lemon sponge.

I don't believe they do unfortunately. Think they open for drinks for a couple of hours but that's it.

We are a friendly run family pub. Where a warm welcome awaits you every time. You can sit outside on the patio or sit over looking the river Severn . Enjoying a nice ice cold drink or have a meal, looking out for the kingfishers or the otters. In the winter, you can enjoy a meal inside feeling the warmth of our log burner. Or just enjoy a drink. Soaking up the friendly atmosphere. Sit at the bar and have a nice chat with our friendly locals. We are a dog friendly pub. There are water bowls outside, for our four legged friends. We also serve a variety of teas, coffees, lattes, fruit teas, hot chocolate etc. There is a special board, which is changed throughout the year. With a large selection of vegetarian options.
