Visited here for a late lunch as another site had said it was a dog friendly pub, which it was and they provided a bowl of water. Extremely disappointed with food though. Lunch menu almost nonexistent as they don't do sandwiches or any lunch-style meals. What we did get was bland and it's the first time I've ever seen salad... More

Asked what the soup was, got told tomato. It was nothing like tomato, more like vegetable with a kick of pepper. No butter given with the bland bread as well. Not worth almost £4, portion size was ridiculous. Asked for ladies fish and chips as I seen the reviews were excellent for this particular dish. The fish itself was a... More

Hi Kirsty, I would normally thank guests for their reviews - but not this time. Firstly I would like to point out we are a restaurant and bar - we are not a gastro pub (although our food is on a par with most i feel). so your comments regarding us using frozen peas (which are deemed to be the...

I was staying nearby but didn't fancy hotel cuisine so thought I'd try out The Telford Arms for some of the TripAdvisor highly recommended fish and chips. Glad I did. I chose the large Fresh Haddock portion and was pleasantly surprised when I was asked if I wanted it breaded or battered. At £8.95 it's extremely good value for money.... More

I had fish and chips - the lunchtime portion is excellent value at £3.95 - they create the fish and chips as one of their best dishes and it was! My husband had the steak pie and was disappointed - felt the gravy was too watery. Service was excellent - very attentive and friendly. Would definitely go back for fish... More

Had a nice meal here, food was good, prices were good, lots of space, place was clean, great for couples, families, etc. We're planning on going back. Took 1 star away because we were new customers and our server was more interested in their friends than us, pity, it would have been five stars otherwise. Nice place though.
