I went to the Golden Ball to see a great blues musician - Gwyn Ashton, who was playing there that night. I'd booked the room directly and when I arrived I was met with a friendly smile and shown to my room by a very courteous young member of the bar staff. This is a lovely old inn and the... More

We had an evening meal which was delicious but unfortunately didn't get to sample the desserts as ran out of time! We were playing bridge nearby and although had booked a table, the Inn wasn't expecting a sudden influx of other bridge players and we had to wait a long time for the food. would eat there again.

We stopped for something to eat and had a good sunday roast and minted lamb burger which was really tasty. Seen a few poor reviews recently but think some people expect the Ritz. Its a small... More

We hadn't been to the Golden Ball for a number of years, but having read some positive recent reviews decided to give it another go. Whilst the service was friendly and professional, the food didn't really deliver on taste. I opted for the cajun pork on noodles - whilst the pork was tasty, the noodles were sadly lacking in flavour... More

Not a large menu to choose from but it all sounded lovely, however, I ordered the chicken and chorizo in tomato sauce with penne pasta - BIG MISTAKE. The chicken and chorizo was sitting on a large pile of penne pasta, which I expected... More

The Golden Ball is an old character pub & certainly one of the best in Ironbridge. The food is gastro pub but plain fare is also available. The staff are efficient & friendly & there is a wide range of real ales & a selection of continental beers such as Leffe, on draft. In the last few months it has... More
