The Bird In Hand

Why not enjoy a very relaxed break at our family run Inn, which was built in 1774. Our famous Inn has been serving customers real ales for over 235 years. The 1st pint was drank 5 years before the Iron bridge was completed. For the past 28 years the Poulton family (Bill, Hazel, Steve and Michelle) have been successfully serving customers food and real ales in this famous Inn. So as you can see we really are a family run Inn! LOCATION/ VILLAGE OF IRONBRIDGE We are situated in the historical village of Ironbridge, central to all the museums and Blists Hill Victorian Town. The Inn is set in its own grounds, in a prominent position with spectacular views of the river severn and the Ironbridge gorge, giving customers a superb location for their visits to all the museums in the area. Step back in time and walk on the first Iron Bridge to be built in the world that spans the river Severn, which is also the longest river in Great Britain. The source of the river severn is Plynlimon Wales and discharges into the Bristol Channel. OUR HISTORICAL 1774 INN We run our Inn, how an Inn should be run in a historical village.
