Less than 10 minutes walk down river from the hotel is the now World famous Iron Bridge itself - a symbol of our bygone Industrial Heritage, the atmosphere of which has been recaptured by the many and varied Ironbridge Gorge Museums Sites.
All the museum sites are within easy walking distance, or a short drive away from the hotel. The Valley Hotel pre-dates the famous bridge by a quarter of a century and has historic links with the Darby family. The Valley Hotel's unique and sympathetic refurbishment blends ideally with the hotel's historic location. One-time servant quarters and stables have been 'absorbed' by the main hotel to provide 'mews style' accommodation, accessed by glass covered walkways.
Chez Maw Restaurant
Alongside the River Severn in the historically important Ironbridge Gorge, the Chez Maw Restaurant makes a convenient watering hole after you retreat footsore and culturally overdosed from the world-renowned wonders of the cradle of Britain's Industrial Revolution.
The á la carte menu offers a range of modern British cuisine at its best, with a good selection of vegetarian dishes. The wine list is supportive with bins from the Old and New World. Currently holding a 2 AA rosette award for high standard cuisine and service, this is most certainly one of the better restaurants in a part of Shropshire renowned for its outstanding scenery. The dining room, for instance, has the benefit of an adjoining bar and patio area, which overlooks award winning Parkland and the River Severn, in the centre of this World Heritage site.
Best Western Valley Hotel is situated in the beautiful Ironbridge Gorge overlooking the River Severn and the award winning Dale End Park, an ideal setting for your wedding and reception. This Georgian Listed building offers 3* accommodation, 2 rosette awarded cuisine and exquisite gardens for your photographs. Whether you are looking for a small intimate wedding or a larger traditional wedding, look no further.
Can you imagine sipping ice cold champagne on the outdoor terrace overlooking the park, then sitting down to a delicately cooked delicious meal, served by a friendly but professional team of skilled staff, who want to make your day special. The hotel has three licensed rooms to suit varying number of guests, from small intimate occasions to a larger gathering.
Getting married outdoors has been the dream of many brides over the years but only now is it possible in the Ironbridge Gorge. Best Western Valley Hotel has a beautiful Victorian style gazebo on the terrace of the hotel, offering a truly romantic setting for couples to confirm their commitment to each other. On a beautiful spring or summer's day this is the perfect setting for your wedding ceremony and will certainly prove to be a unique talking point amongst family and friends during the wedding breakfast!
Best Western Valley Hotel and Ironbridge itself, offers an idyllic setting with character and charm which can only enhance your day. To view the hotel's facilities and discuss your individual requirements, please call to book an appointment with a wedding co-ordinator who will guide you through the organisation of your wedding day.
