Lovely freshly made meals & light snacks. Mouth watering array of good English food with a continental twist. Variety of salads, pastries and main meals. Sit outside in the sun for a lovely meal or cuppa & watch the world go by - indoor seating as well. Food was very good value and portions were man sized. Shop also sells... More

Visited here recently with my other half for a late morning breakfast. We would usually just go somewhere like Wetherspoons or Harvester for breakfast but fancied a change & this place was highly recommended by a friend of mine & she couldn't of been more right! This place was superb. Little pricier than we would usually pay for breakfast, but... More

We loved this place. The tea was exceptional and 5 cups out of a pot! Plus plenty of choice for gluten free. Had delicious gluten free hot cross bun. The Grandmas blend was lovely. The staff were really friendly. Could not fault...even saw them wiping down menus with Dettol. Very impressed.

Called in whilst visiting Ironbridge. Rainy day so no one sat outside on the 6 iron tables with red umbrellas. 6 tables inside with yellow tablecloths covered in glass, and only one other couple in when we arrived. Limited parking nearby it appeared. Lovely waitresses. Scones heavy (£2.85) Small cake portions too.

We only popped in for a brief cup of tea and sat outside. Really good service and an excellent cup of "Grandma's tea" from a very wide selection. We ended up buying some and a teapot!

Gorgeous vegetarian breakfast. Hallumi bubble and squeak. Tomato mushrooms beans egg. And half a toasted baguette. Beautifully presented. And not a bad price

Wonderful breakfast and coffee in this charming cafe. It is worth going in to smell the cafe -- lots of coffees and teas wafting. The breakfast could not have been bettered.
