The Coalbrookedale is a very old pub built in the 18th century. Despite the recession when many pubs have closed the Coalbrookedale has survived I'm glad to say. It is an old pub full of character that has had to face the challenge of modern times but I can say since Tom took over things have improved & a supply of different beverages has been supplied to meet customer demands such as an extensive variety of real ales such as Pale Rider, Dark Side of the Moose & Town Crier not to mention popular bottled beers including Belgian beer Leffe. Spent many happy times there with my husband Clive & I would recommend it to locals & visitors alike.

The Coalbrookdale Inn used to be the best pub in Ironbridge- for food, atmosphere, real ales, bottled beers & especially fruit wine with great affordable meals. Sadly a slow decline followed after Mike & Corinne left. Danny & Dawn took over next & although they provided rooms & Dawn cooked some great food the atmosphere was less warm & a lot of locals went to drink elsewhere. Today, although the building is interesting & it hasn,t been tastelessly modernised there are even less of the interesting & colourful local people there than ever. Real ales are still sold but no fruit wines & no food unless you want a cob, sausage roll, bag of crisps or some pork scratchings. Perhaps one day someone will come along & restore it to it's former glory.

We dropped by for a break in between a museum trip and lunch further on up the Ironbridge Gorge. The pub was being managed by the Landlady's father that day who went out of his way with another member of staff to make us feel extremely welcome. It was a pleasure to spend some time sampling some beautifully kept real ales the only downside was having to leave!
I hope you do get in the Good Beer Guide soon as you deserve it. Thanks for the best pint we had all weekend and the warm welcome. For anyone visiting the Museums at Coalbrookdale take some time and visit this wonderful pub.

They do a superb traditional Sunday lunch .2courses circa £10.This is not your usual pub grub....everything is actually properly cooked.Makes an ideal food destination after a visit to the MUSEUM OF IRON across the road.Parking limited so leave the car at the museum.The restaurant is also small..so booking may be advised...and Sunday Lunch is only served up to 2.30 ish..pm. The range of beers is good as well.

Hi Julie

Thank you for the review; however I'm a little worried that you may have reviewed the wrong pub. We are not currently doing Sunday lunch. I would hate for someone else to miss out on such a great review!

Thanks

Stumbled across this place on the way to Enginuity and Ironbridge. On the road in, it's a real traditional pub with a great, friendly atmosphere and a superb stock of real ales. Overlooks Coalbrookdale. The landlady clearly knows her beer and is extremely welcoming. Well worth a stop - best pub we've visited in a long time.

Ate here while touring Ironbridge Gorge. This was our favorite pub in our 3+ weeks of touring England and Wales (and we hit a lot!). We had a pie, lasagna, and the curry - all excellent. Ales were all equally good. Atmosphere and staff matched the meal. Would definitely come back again.

Stayed 1 night in February 2011. Very comfortable and great value room - in reality a suite of 3 rooms with exceptional bathroom. Hearty breakfast more than you can reasonabley eat. Excellent freindly host with award winning beer in the bar. No restaurant other than Sunday lunch but lots of places nearby.
