It was tried simply as the first one found below the hotel, but a lucky find. It was busy at the end of a Friday and changed to people on a meal out. The staff made sure that we got a table, but did not pester for us to move on. Good choice of food.

We met our friends here and enjoyed a snack and a pint. The food was good and well presented and the real ale was excellent.

Starter of deep fried Brie was lovely, I could have eaten more. My main which was a Mediterranean veg linguine dish was terrible and had lots of chilli in but no lemon or pine nuts, so nothing like the description on the menu; needless to say I left it. One other main was burnt; perhaps the head chef was off....people... More

Visited on a Sunday for Lunch whilst in Ironbridge, Restaurant area was not that busy as it was mid-afternoon. We ordered and our starters came fairly quickly and were delicious sadly the wait for our main meal was exceptionally long. In fact in another party sitting nearby some mains came at least 15mins before the remainder. Ours came even later.... More

Had a wonderful meal here - we were well looked after by Charlotte who was attentive and friendly, ensuring we were topped up with drinks and happy with our meals. Great atmosphere in this attractive establishment and very reasonably priced - would recommend!

We visited here on the May Day Sunday. The food was very tasty, and nicely presented. Our dog could join us, which was great. I had the Cajun salmon, with coriander crushed potatoes. The interior is very tastefully decorated.
