Upton upon Severn is such a great place for food-lovers. From pubs, bars, restaurants and coffee shops, there is something for all tastes. You can get there in about 45 minutes from Birmingham. It’s a really enjoyable place to explore as it’s pretty, eclectic and very charming. I’ve rounded up my recommendations on where to eat in Upton Upon Severn.
As we keep our boat on the River Severn, this is our favourite way to arrive in Upton Upon Severn. It saves looking for a parking space in the narrow streets! But you do need to find a mooring spot. Luckily there are a number of moorings on the riverside, that are free to use. There are pontoons and a number of mooring rings, so you’re normally able to find a spot.
There are also visitor moorings at the Upton Marina. While this is on the opposite side of the river to the town itself, it’s a very short walk away. It also has a great spot to eat and drink (which you can read more about below).

I think this is our top choice. Their freshly cooked pizzas are delicious, and the mojitos (as you’d expect!) are divine. If you visit during lunch you can also choose from their range of paninis. The coffee is great too, and while I haven’t tried a dessert, the sweet menu is certainly very tempting.
This is a lovely tapas restaurant overlooking the river. In the warmer months, there are tables outside to enjoy the view. The menu is really varied, including meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. If you’re stuck on what to order, their King Tapas offer is ideal. For £25pp, you get 11 mystery dishes so you can try lots of different tapas.
A super friendly cafe that serves breakfasts through to lunch, all beautifully cooked. The cake selection is impressive too. There’s a playroom if you’re visiting with little ones which is great for entertaining them while you enjoy your coffee for five minutes.
Now this is actually on the other side of the river, located at Upton Marina. But is needs a mention as it is a great place for a hearty bite. Think pub grub classics, in a welcoming bar setting. It’s also incredibly reasonable, so a good place to go if you’re looking for somewhere a bit more wallet-friendly.
So these places get good reviews but are currently untested by me. But spending so much time there on the water, next season we will certainly be reviewing even more eateries! What a great way to combine a love of water and food.
