Stopped here for a pre-May-Day-Bank-Holiday-madness-at-Ironbridge cup of tea, and treated ourselves to a cake each too. We sat outside with our two kids, and got waitress service. Tea was served promptly, and left to stew for a few minutes. Cakes arrived shortly afterwards.

There's a wide selection of teas and coffees, with cakes, sandwiches, jacket spuds and other meals on the menu - it'd be nice to go back when we'd got more time to sample it again.

As it was, it was fresh, friendly and quick. On a nice day, the outside seating here gets packed so turn up early!

My husband & I called on for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. He had ham, eggs and fried potato and I had the veggie chilli with a jacket potato and we shared a pot of delicious leaf tea .
The place was really busy with plenty of hardy souls sat outside but we settled for a small but adequate table inside by the window.
The staff were friendly and efficient and we soon had our meals which were absolutely delicious. The chilli was probably the best that I have ever tasted and my husband ate every bit of his meal which is unusual for him.
I bought some loose tea to take home and to send to my nephew in the States and the total bill including this was still under £20.
Wish that this place was open in the evenings too !
Going there tomorrow on our way home to try out their breakfasts - the veggie one looks very good indeed !
Sorry that we didn't discover this little gem earlier in our stay here.
Well worth a visit !

Not exactly a restaurant, but a tea room than does every kind of tea imaginable, not only tea but great coffee and hot chocolate, you can buy the loose tea to take home.
It is tucked away in the corner of Ironbridge Square next to the post office, it has inside and outside seating areas, so if you have a dog this is the place to come.
They have a daily specials board as well as a fixed menu (try the breakfast, yummy)
So if you are in Ironbridge, give it a try you won`t be disappointed.

How can such a nice cafe, with plenty of staff and half full ,have such slow service ? Waited 10 minutes to be asked for order, really dont know what they were doing ..... And then waited nearly 30 minutes for 2 sandwiches, plenty of staff, didnt seem that busy. Was within 2 minutes of leaving,saving grace was that the food was very good.

And please dont give me the " our food is freshly cooked to order line " it was 30 minutes !

Sort yourselves out guys please .
