Camera's should be put up. Car break ins happening every week now. Had my back quarter window smashed. No items on view. Unfortunately my purse was in boot so within half hour low-life person spent £75 in the local tesco then treated themselves to a meal at the local Red Lion pub!! Whole ordeal cost me £220 to replace window. Won't be visiting the Wrekin ever again. This will happen more as its easy money for them..thieving low life nobody's. I know of 3 people in last two weeks this has happened to!

The Wrekin itself is a nice walk BUT BEWARE, my car had its window smashed and broken into and it’s happening to other people too from what I’ve heard, seems to be happening every week. Don’t want anyone else to experience what I have so either don’t go or don’t leave anything in your car whatsoever! Myself and someone else both said we think we were being watched putting a bag in the boot of our cars and then when we left they smashed into it and stole.

Visiting Shropshire during half term and we took a walk up the wrekin after a recommendation from friends. A bit muddy in parts but that can't be helped due to the weather lately. Lovely views over shropshire from the top

As someone who’s active but out of shape, I walked the hill with a friend today and I wanted to leave a realistic review as it appears mountain goats have taken over trip advisor 😂 It’s very steep all the way up to the top and not a fast walk. People were very friendly and helped us with directions as they weren’t very clearly sign posted. After the first steep bit there’s an option to turn left or right, go up the right turn even though it looks steeper - save yourself the pain. To the left you’ll eventually hit a vertical forest climb. It’s also very wet and muddy up there so bring good shoes! The cafe is also now apparently closed for the foreseeable future according to a sign on the gate. When you get to the top, DO NOT walk down the other side, you’ll have to go down the vertical bank mentioned previously and it took us half an hour only to put us out on the opposite side of the Wrekin to the car park 😂 Go back the way you came and save the pain. It’s a lovely view from the top though and everyone you see is incredibly friendly and motivating. But please don’t do what we did and go into this thinking it’s a nice gentle novice walk because it really isn’t! It really does feel great to finish though and to be able you say you managed to climb it as someone who’s out of shape!

We found the pub (luckily by accident!) it’s dog friendly, has a beautiful view, lovely staff and great beer and food at a REALLY reasonable price!
My husband had the pork belly and I had the shin of beef cottage pie topped with cheesy mash .
Really lovely pub food and so glad we found it! Would definitely recommend….the menu was extensive, something for all.

We had a Sunday morning stroll up the Wrekin, never done it before I thought it was quite steep. Took about an hour. Wear good footwear as it’s very cobbly. Parking was free at the base of the Wrekin. The cafe didn’t open until 11 so by the time we passed on the way down was still only 10:30

This was a great experience it’s a must for people visiting the area! Although some work is needed in the signage and the wooden walk ways!

My wife & I walked up The Wrekin on the 7th Nov, a busy ‘lockdown’ Saturday. Arriving at the car park it was very busy & some cars were parked in the road. There are double yellow lines & some cars were straddling them. We managed to park around 200yds up from the car park & with all our wheels off the road inside the yellow lines. When we returned very many cars had parking tickets issued by the police who appeared to have quite a presence now. Ours didn’t have a ticket but strangely, a car parked similarly to ours but 100 yds closer to the car park did - see the photos. Apart from the parking issue, this is a very worthwhile hike - beautiful woodland giving way to spectacular views and, if you descend the route away from the car park, even better woodland & far, far less people. A circular route of 6 miles with steep ascent & descent.

Good food, furniture needs restoring split seats and table tops in poor condition
Staff are curtious and helpful
Condition of furniture not their fault

Megan our waitress was very polite and helpful
Cannot fault anything she did.

I’ve been up here many times over the years and I must say even though sometimes challenging I always enjoy it! It’s great exercise to walk/ jog up here and the views from the top are amazing! Recently my friend and I tried to get up here as fast as we could - I managed it in 22 minutes which I was pretty proud of!

Get here early to make sure you secure a parking space.
