Bird In Hand Inn

Enjoy a relaxed break at the family run Bird in Hand Inn, built in 1774 the Inn dates back older than the Iron Bridge itself.

Successfully managed by the Poulton family, the Inn has an excellent reputation for its selection and quality of meals, large range of real ales and their attention to detail when it comes to customer service.  

Positioned in a picturesque setting in its own grounds and extensive gardens the Bird in Hand Inn has prominent views of the River Severn and Ironbridge Gorge, perfect for dining or relaxing with a drink.  

The Inn is located in superb proximity to visit all the Ironbridge Gorge Museums as well as the Ironbridge Gorge and it neighbouring towns and attractions. 

Just a short drive away you’ll find Telford Town Centre best known for its award winning 460 acre park, Southwater leisure quarter, Shopping Centre and Convention Centre.  


Malcolm, Feb 2016 - "Excellent Location to Visit Ironbridge" 

We stayed for three nights and all the main Ironbridge highlights were within walking distance. Very friendly, excellent food, very clean - perfect for a short break. 

Andrea, July 2015 - "Wonderful"

I stayed here with my 82 year old mother and we had a brilliant time - the inn was all that it said on the tin and the staff were friendly, professional and wonderful towards my mum, we were made to feel welcome and valued.
