Looked at the menu and discussed with the chef. They always put on vegetarian starters and mains. They will cater for all dietary needs if prior notice is given. Friendly atmosphere. Restaurant hold 40 however bar meals are still offered all on the same menu.

We loved our stay at this little old pub. The room was nice and big with a 4 poster bed and a huge bathroom. The pub is off the tourist track and is frequented by the locals which was a real treat. The meal in the restaurant area was so good. The locals are friendly. Are really enjoyed our stay.... More

My late wife and members of my family have visited here when we wanted a better dining experience than the norm. It is a small cosy restaurant where you don't feel pressured. On the date of this review I visited with my daughter and son in law with their two boys aged 13 an 10. We arrived at 7 pm... More

A warm & friendly welcome. Our accommodation was excellent - bedroom plus lounge area for £65 per night as at Oct. 2015. Menu was not 'ordinary pub grub' and was a cut above the rest. Our choices over the 4 nights were superbly cooked and presented. Special mention must be made of Helen, who was extremely helpful. One small comment:... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and had a lovely time. We got there just after the kitchen had finished for lunch time but they were still serving sandwiches. These came with chips and were a good portion size. The staff were really friendly and happy to have a chat. They told us about the best places... More

A pleasant old inn. Clean and comfortable room with all the usual facilities. Good value. Nice breakfast. Good pub atmosphere. Good parking which can be difficult in Ironbridge. Steep hill down into the town but not far from all the museums etc.

This has been our regular since the current hard-working landlady took over a couple of years ago. Beer is great and there is always something tasty to eat on the blackboard menu. Nothing is ever too much trouble; if it can be done it will!

Stayed in the Golden Ball for the late May Bank Holiday and it was excellent - clean and comfortable accommodation, great food and wonderfully friendly staff. Hope to go back in the summer for some fishing and will stay in the same place.
