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.

We went to Ironbridge on a whim this bank holiday without booking anywhere to stay - all fully booked we tried the Golden Ball Inn last and they had a room. We are very glad they had! The accommodation was lovely and cosy a Fab Four poster with a huge duvet and a huge bathroom! Everything you'd need for a... More

Always a good option to stop off at the Golden ball for lunch or dinner on the way home. Great range of food and beers. Service is always fantastic. Nice surrounding area. In the spring/ summer you can sit out in the beer garden. You can't go wrong.

A group of four, we booked a deal for four for lunch today. We all chose main course and sweet. When we entered the restaurant we were greeted with a friendly smile and shown to our table. We had a glass of Prosseco and then chose our main course. Two chose the duck breast with plum and ginger. Cooked to... More

A very large room with a kitchenette and an excellent olde pub. Excellent value for money. Good tv in the room with a sofa and a good armchair, tea, coffee and a cooker. Well worth staying here. Pub built in 1728.

I stayed at the Golden Ball for a night before attending a conference in Telford. I always prefer to stay in a pub if possible rather than a standard travel hotel - at least you know the hotel bar is going to be good and it personalises an otherwise anodyne trip. I booked the Golden Ball on the basis of... More

I went for the fish cakes they were so disappointing could hardly taste the fish perhaps I chose the wrong meal as my husband had a pork steak covered in stilton sauce which he said was verg good. But could hardly tell our friends to go there with only one cause ok. Margaret
