Stylish bar and upstairs restaurant in comfortable, neatly updated and well placed inn; bedrooms

This is a lovely town-centre inn with a gently civilised but friendly atmosphere, excellent food, a fine choice of drinks and highly regarded bedrooms. The décor throughout is most appealing and cleverly combines original 16th-c features with more contemporary touches. The big-windowed bar consists of three linked levels, the lowest of which has armchairs on dark flagstones by a big inglenook; elsewhere, there's a cushioned settee or two, but most of the seats are at sturdy stripped tables on dark floorboards. A few modern paintings, plentiful flowers and church candles brighten up the restrained cream and grey décor, as do the friendly staff and background music. Hobsons Old Prickly, Salopian Shropshire Gold and Wye Valley Butty Bach on handpump, 14 wines by the glass and farm cider. Off quite a warren of corridors, the restaurant is in the older back part of the building with beams and timbering (you can eat from the restaurant menu in the bar too). Outside, there are seats and tables under parasols with olive trees and flowering pots dotted about. A splendid place to stay, the bedrooms are pretty, well equipped and comfortable and breakfasts are good; some roomsoffer glimpses of the River Severn below the nearby English Bridge.
