We have visited The Tea Emporium Iron-bridge on past occasions, though the last time was circa five years ago. Today was another special day, "being out with my wife is always a special day", no I was not prompted to say that, well not on this occasion. A pleasant amble along the riverside, taking a few photos of the iconic... More

We stopped here for a very late lunch. There was a breakfast menu (!!) which was still in force, so we had a vegetarian breakfast each, plus tea and coffee. Service was a bit slow, but friendly. the meal was good, not as greasy as some breakfasts can be. The location is a little odd - sitting outside, partly in... More

We had a quick lunch on a recent day trip to Ironbridge. Little cafe serving really good lunches Fare was sandwiches and brunch style hot and cold food. We had a mix of special, salad, and baked potato. Good portions, really fresh and a great atmosphere. We eat outside in the square - beautiful scenery looking across the gorge.

Visited yesterday and sat outside in the sunshine, a very polite and courteous young lady took our order, and explained that the food is cooked to order and would be about 15 mins, after 10 mins or so our vegetarian breakfasts arrived, we chose the grilled halloumi option. It was delicious and beautifully cooked. Would definitely return.

I love this cafe and have been on a number of occasions, the staff are wonderful and very friendly. Yesterday my Nan and I had the warm sausage and chorizo potato salad which was delicious, the food is homemade and very reasonably priced. I highly recommend this cafe!

Stopped here for a pre-May-Day-Bank-Holiday-madness-at-Ironbridge cup of tea, and treated ourselves to a cake each too. We sat outside with our two kids, and got waitress service. Tea was served promptly, and left to stew for a few minutes. Cakes arrived shortly afterwards. There's a wide selection of teas and coffees, with cakes, sandwiches, jacket spuds and other meals on...

My husband & I called on for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. He had ham, eggs and fried potato and I had the veggie chilli with a jacket potato and we shared a pot of delicious leaf tea . The place was really busy with plenty of hardy souls sat outside but we settled for a small but adequate table... More

Not exactly a restaurant, but a tea room than does every kind of tea imaginable, not only tea but great coffee and hot chocolate, you can buy the loose tea to take home. It is tucked away in the corner of Ironbridge Square next to the post office, it has inside and outside seating areas, so if you have a... More
