We had the "snacks" menu - I think they were all from Bookers or Iceland and were rather horrible. Dry mini burger, tasteless goujons batter dripping with oil, chicken and ham pie with chicken like bullets. Luckily they weren't expensive. On the plus side the mini ribs were ok and the staff were nice. Won't be back though.

I was on my way to Much Wenlock and needed lunch, having eaten at The Malthouse before I called in. I was surprised that there were only two other costumers, but Ironbridge was fairly quiet. I wasn't disappointed. I had home-made fish cakes with salad and chips. The food was excellent and served by a very friendly waitress. Looking at... More

Ate here in November on a very rainy night. Ordered the mushroom and bleu cheese starter and the Steak, Mushroom, and Ale Pie for my main. They were both very tasty and of good quality. Ale was good as well. Service was friendly and personable. Would definitely go again for the extensive menu and to try something else.

The service was good, the food was ok, typical "pub" food. The interior of the pub is very dark and oppressive. Probably great in the evening but too heavy for day time dining. A stark contrast to the exterior which is bright and modern. There are lots of dining establishments in Ironbridge, wouldn't rush back to this one.

Having arrived at just before 2pm without booking our family group of 11 were seated, waited on by friendly staff and fed well. We ate the roast beef, roast pork belly, roast turkey and fish cakes. All were very good. Hot, well presented and tasty. Personally I liked the decor and atmosphere.

Food here was better than chain pub food. Our favourite dish was the Moroccan lamb, I commented to the waiter who told me the chef was Moroccan so it should have been good! Nice atmosphere, decor eclectic!

Visited on a quiet Sunday evening, and only because the White Hart had 'run out of food'. Decor is interesting (!) but more faded nightclub or bordello than restaurant. Service was efficient and quite friendly. Food was poor. Fairly basic pub menu. Batter on fish goujons was unbelievably greasy. Burger was OK, salad accompaniment was actually quite good, chips were... More

Stayed for work, rooms were big and we'll equipped. Wifi was good which was a god send as phone signal is hit and miss. Food was good and staff very friendly. Good beer on tap too which is nice to see.

This is fairly standard fare. Microwaved but satisfactory and enjoyed by our group. However not our favourite restaurant during our stay in Ironbridge.

Thank Paul M
