This place is absolutely fantastic - we have been every year for the last 10 years arriving with a big party all wanting variations of dishes and drinks. Nothing is too much trouble for them - the food is freshly cooked and completely delicious, service is amazing and it is great value. Having breakfast in The Tea Emporium is the... More

Lovely spot with great outdoor area. Service excellent, food very tasty & prices reasonable. Stopped once for drinks & impressed enough to return for late lunch. Would definitely return.

Great little tea rooms with outside seating , right opposite the iron bridge . Only a few parking spaces on site on a very busy area, suggest drive across second bridge and come back to car park on other side of iron bridge and walk across. Menu of breakfasts , baps hot and cold baguettes, specialist tea and coffee, although... More

The perfect place for afternoon (or anytime) tea, funny enough! Tucked away just across the road from the Iron bridge itself, this was an adorable quaint little place, full of extraordinary varieties of tea, as well as plenty of delectable cakes on offer! A great place to buy authentic and rarer tea leaf blends for gifts (or as a treat... More

Good watering hole with freshly cooked breakfast/brunch type menu. Stopped there for brunch - was very busy - ate sausage & mushroom bap & baguettes filled with bacon. Both excellent - just what was needed after an early start & no breakfast., Ironbridge bustling with tourists. Only criticism was lack of toilets - you had to pop round & use... More

Really lovely welcome at this little cafe tucked a sunny spot in viewing distance of the Ironbridge. Loose leaf tea, perfectly served.

This is a little gem of a shop and tea rooms. The menu is breakfast items, selections of cakes, hot/ cold baguettes/baps/ gluten free bread, omelettes and jackets. All £5-£7. There is no child menu so I had to pay £4.95 for a ham roll of which my 3 year old ate the ham and nothing else. I would not... More

Nice tearoom. We sat in the outdoor area which has a view of the bridge. Tea was served quickly. Pleasant staff but best of all lots of gluten free cakes available for my daughter.

Found this nice café / restaurant just off the main street. Decided to go in for breakfast. There are several tables inside and ample seating outside. I ordered a full English breakfast, which I can honestly say is one of the finest breakfast's I have ever tasted. Came complete with a toasted baguette, which was a nice change from just... More
